I am excited to share the news that I have decided to join Maureen Suriner at The Center for Inner Wellness and she said Yes! The CFIW is located on Main Street in Chester Massachusetts right on Main Street. This move makes our collaborations and brain storming sessions official. It gives me a home base and increases my visibility in the community. I will have a dedicated treatment space for Aromatherapy consultations and Reiki sessions and a place to hold my classes. We are in the planning stages now and we are working on our calendar of events. Look for an announcement for our Open House in the next month or so. Wish us luck!
We have wrapped up the Summer Market schedule. It was really fun to be a part of the Lee Farmer’s Market again and to join the West Stockbridge Farmer’s Market. Now we are working on the Fall class schedule and looking at Bazaars, Makers Markets and Craft Shows to keep us busy. Check back here for an updated calendar of events. Kay
We are gearing up for the new season!
With the longer days and the teases of spring like weather, our attention is turning towards planning for the new season. Our Spring Aromatherapy Class Series has started and the first Craft Show/Market is this weekend. Look for the Blue Skye Wellness table in the old schoolhouse at the Chester Hill Association’s Maplefest on Saturday.
Our classes are a great way to learn how to safely use essential oils and to get some hands on experience with creating products. Call me to schedule a consultation for guidance for how to create effective blends.
Once you know how to handle the oils and how to use them you may want to schedule a consultation to learn which essential oils are most effective for your personal wellness goals.
In recent times Aromatherapy and the use of essential oils has become a recognized alternative and complementary modality for health and well-being. Increasingly essential oils are being used to support physical and emotional health. Unfortunately there is a lack of reliable information regarding safe and effective use of essential oils. It is important for those who are thinking of using essential oils to support a specific health concern to start off with a solid base of practical knowledge.
An Aromatherapy consultation serves a variety of purposes that hinge on the important principles of education and instruction. Aromatherapists do not diagnose, prescribe or treat a specific condition, but they provide educational resources, instruction and guidance about how essential oils can support the body’s natural tendency towards balance. In this effort it is important for the practitioner to impart industry recognized guidelines for the safe usage of essential oils.
An initial consult includes a discussion about the specific goal that is desired from using essential oils. A client may have a targeted concern or may just be seeking to learn more about using essential oils and the basic principles of Aromatherapy. General guidelines are shared regarding effective applications, safe formulations and recommendations for essential oils appropriate to the body’s systems to be addressed. A consult will ultimately enable the client to make informed decisions, while following safe usage guidelines. A beneficial result of the relationship between the client and the Aromatherapist is that it will provide a pathway for future access to reliable information.
Those who are new to Aromatherapy will find that starting off with the guidance of a certified practitioner will aid to reduce confusion, improve safety and ensure positive results.
