Essential Oils for Lent

How EO's Can Support Your 2016 Lenten Journey

Wednesday February 3 Hilliard, Ohio 6:30pm-8pm

From Genesis throughout the New Testament, Scripture talks about oils as an important part of the story of God. 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) to support you on your Lenten journey. Specific oils will be discussed and you will experience them for yourself. We will create a finger labyrinth to aid in your lent meditations.

And just for fun - fabulous Fat Tuesday treats will be served!

All are welcome! Invite a friend!

Introducing dōTERRA. Empowering You to Be Ready for Anything

What is a Labyrinth and how can it help support my journey in Lent?

The labyrinth is an ancient symbol that relates to wholeness. When you walk the labyrinth, you embark on a spiritual journey, allowing space for God amid the usually crammed confines of our minds. The labyrinth is not a maze, which is designed to confuse and challenge, but a circuitous path with no wrong turns or blind alleys. If you continue on the path, you inevitably come to the center where your journey has led you. With a labyrinth, there is only one choice to be made— whether or not to enter and walk a spiritual path.

Our health and well-being are important. I urge you to take responsibility for our own health-related decisions. Learn about our body and how it works. Learn what is naturally available to help us. Pharmaceuticals have their place but so does natural medicine. We need to become and remain proactive in seeking optimum health and wellness.

Take good care of your temple. Live with hope and joy!
