Aromatherapy 101


As Rod Stewart said in the 1980s, “Tonight I’m yours!” Tonight I’m yours in an aromatherapeutic sense. Join me for the Aromatherapy 101 workshop I’m teaching at Abhyasa Yoga Center. 6pm-9pm. We’ll cover the history of aromatherapy and the safety and application of essential oils, as well as profile thirteen essential essential oils. Get it? Essential essential oils? Haha. No pun intended. Participants will make a custom blend. I’d love to see what you come up with! Let’s blend together tonight in Brooklyn!

Blending Essential Oils: The Results


To my fellow essential oil junkies who took my Basic Blending workshop at Abhyasa Yoga Center this past weekend, awesome job! Such great blends! What’s wonderful for leading these workshops is that I have the oils filed away in my brain and in my heart, but I would never think of these combinations if it weren’t for you. It kinda works like this. You bring your likes, your goals, and your desires to the workshop, and I just suggest why not basil with that geranium? Honestly, it’s a bit more than that, but it’s kinda like that. We go over the does and don’ts, I set you up, and then off you go into the essential oil wild blue yonder!

Let’s see. What blends did we come up with? Lavender, frankincense, and sandalwood. Delish. Great just before bed. Nighty night. Clary sage, vetiver, and patchouli. Woah. Earth mama. Grounding. Sensual. Also good before bed. Cedar, geranium, and frankincense. Strength, balance, and observation, and it smells good too! Yum.

If you’re interested in blending with me, be on the look out for the next essential oil workshop at Abhyasa in Brooklyn. I’ll stop the world and blend with you!

Hot off the presses! I’m featured in Picture This!, a fantastic journal by the students of PS 3: The Charrette School. I can see a future Oprah or Larry King rolling out of PS 3 sometime soon. Now, don’t forget who helped you get there, mis amiguitos!
