    Among the various reasons why primates do touch each other is to ease tensions among the group in social situations. The hormone Oxytocin is another benefit of physical touch. Oxytocin helps humans connect to others and promotes feel-good sensations that foster a sense of well-being and happiness. Let’s experience the power of touch together! Using essential oils to enhance our overall experience, each participant will get to experience and also be trained to do the AromaTouch Hand Massage Technique. The AromaTouch Technique, developed by Dr. David K. Hill, D.C., provides both aromatic and topical benefits. While the main purpose of the technique is to apply the oils and provide the recipient with a sensory experience, it also facilitates an emotional connection between the giver and receiver. The connections developed through this technique encourage feelings of trust, being cared for and about, relaxation, and can ease physical discomfort in muscles and joints. We will go over the basics of using essential oils and some safety protocols at the start of our workshop. For those that go through the training there will be an option to go out into the community to provide others with this connection and incredible experience.

    Come learn about essential oils and the diversity that lies within. Enhance your palette by enjoying the aromas of pure essential oils as we dive in deeper to learn about the wide range of locations and people that grow, harvest, and distill these beautiful oils. With over 100 essential oils from over 40 countries—more than half of which could be considered developing countries, there is a wide range of culture that is being impacted. To ensure that small scale farmers and harvesters in disadvantaged areas are treated ethically, these oils have been introduced an initiative called Co-Impact Sourcing. Additionally, learn about a non-profit organization that helps support development projects in sourcing communities. Projects include schools, health clinics, improved infrastructure and clean water systems. Hear and learn about the stories of essential oils literally making the world a better place, one drop at a time.

    Advance registration is appreciated. Walk-ins welcome.
