This course is designed for those who want to deepen their knowledge of essential oils and learn new, effective ways to deliver them. We begin by refining our intuition and using the pendulum as a tool for dowsing. From there, our journey takes us to kinesiology, where we learn to communicate directly with the body. In doing so, we are able to select the best oils suited for each condition. Finally our journey is completed with the chemistry of essential oils. by delving into the chemical makeup of these complex oils and using their constituents to determine our selections, we anchor their properties into our repertoire of knowledge.

This course also covers reflexology as a mode of transporting the oils into the body. Learning the reflexes allows us to promote healing from the inside out and gives us one of the greatest tools of absorption for essential oils.

      This course covers:
           20 Essential oils
           Pendulums as a tool of divination
           Kinesiolgy/muscle testing
           3 Different methods of blending
