Within the aromatherapy world, the “exotic” class of essential oils offers some of the most profound opportunities for healing. These oils are defined by their intense potency, effecting change at minute doses. The exotics are strongly analgesic, reducing acute pain associated with childbirth, post-operative recovery and even narcotics withdrawal. But despite their power, many have soft, appealing scents that simultaneously are strongly antidepressant and useful in emotional crises and life changes.

In this weekend intensive, Registered Aromatherapist Amanda Lattin reviews six of these exotic oils, covering phytochemistry, biochemical effects in the human body, clinical protocols, case studies, safety, indications and contraindications. The weekend includes an in-depth discussion of the ethics of harvest, production and export/import of essential oils. The class wraps up with an interactive segment on custom formulation and protocol design for common complaints including migraine, PMS, grief and loss, insomnia, depression and anxiety.

Note: While no prior aromatherapy experience is required, the formulation portion of this intensive includes oils covered in depth during the February 2014 Essential Oils and Human Physiology weekend. Aromatherapy Deluxe registrants may access the 10-hour weekend recordings for just $125 – an exclusive, 50-percent discount.
