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!

Blending Essential Oils: The Basics

If you haven’t, you must. If you have, do it again. Let’s blend together! Blend what, you say? Essential oils! I’m leading a workshop on the basics of blending essential oils at Abhyasa Yoga Center in Brooklyn, Saturday, February 1, 6pm-9pm. Previous experience with EOs is helpful, but not essential. No pun intended. All are welcomed. Everyone is invited.
