Wed Feb 3 - Essential Oils for Lent
Essential oils were inhaled, applied to the body, and taken internally by the peoples of the ancient Biblical times. The essential oil benefits extend to every aspect of our beings: physical, emotional, mental and spiritual. The people (Jews, Christians, and Muslims) of the Holy Land seemed to understand this quite well. Rather than "giving up" something for Lent, this class will teach you how to "pick up" essential oils during this Lenten Season (Lent starts 2/10). And just for fun - fabulous Fat Tuesday treats will be served!

An unhealthy mood can interfere with so many things in a person's life. It can bring up feelings of hopelessness and disappointment as well as physical symptoms such as headaches, chest tightness, and even pain.This is a powerful class for those who are troubled by organic or situational mood/behavior issues, addiction/recovery, PTSD, anyone who has a chronic health problem, and professional or lay care givers (in a home or medical environment).
