Attendees will learn the importance of essential oils’ affect on our mind and body. As well as contributing fragrance and feel-good, essential oils can have wonderful effects such as antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, antibiofilm and anti-aging. In this seminar, we will learn how, and to what extent, essential oils are absorbed by the skin; how to effectively use them to address skin problems including acne, fungal infections, psoriasis, rosacea and sun damage, and how to make up simple preparations with safe yet effective ingredients.
Avoiding adverse effects is of course important, and is covered in detail. In addition to many essential oils, we will examine the benefits of certain absolutes, CO2 extracts and aromatic fatty oils, such as argan, calendula, pomegranate and tamanu.
We will smell some of the less common oils, absolutes and CO2 extracts discussed, and some of Robert’s recommended finished blends.
Subject areas covered include:
• How and why plants make essential oils
• Understanding essential oil chemistry
• Essential oil chemistry in relation to soap
• Doses, mixing and measuring
• Essential oil quality & integrity
• Microbial balance & protection
• Sun damage & photoageing
• Redness, itching and other sensitivity issues
• Oilyness & dryness
• Allergy & photosensitization – how to avoid them!
• Safe dilutions for specific oils
• Wound healing
This seminar is a lecture/slide presentation with discussion. The emphasis is on what the research shows, especially clinical data, often with photographic evidence. Extensive handouts are provided.
Also included in the seminar are several blending projects in which students will get the chance to create their own custom blended products.

AIA Conference & Expo
The Alliance of International Aromatherapists invites you to their 4th Biennial International Aromatherapy Conference and Wellness Expo to be held September 19-22, 2013, at the Hilton St. Petersburg Bayfront Hotel. With the title, Expanding Aromatherapy: Power of the Past ~ Force of the Future, AIA is hosting an array of industry leaders who will be presenting on a variety of topics including the use of aromatherapy in clinical setting, personal care and other integrative therapies, as well as aromatherapy research.
Meet the speakers
How many opportunities in life will you get to meet, in one place, all these aromatherapy educators and experts? I am giving two presentations:
September 19th: One-day Workshop
Clinical Safety for Aromatherapy: The Way Forward
I will talk about safety in relation to all body systems, focusing on drug interactions, pregnancy and cancer. Understanding and applying some basic principles enables practitioners to make informed decisions. Pertinent information includes essential oil composition, when to extrapolate constituent data, differentiating hazard and risk, and weighing benefit against risk.
September 21st: One-hour lecture
Essential Oils: Safety Scares & Myths
Is tea tree shampoo estrogenic? Is thyme oil hypertensive? Does lavender oil kill skin cells? Safety issues may be generated by well-intentioned aromatherapists, quackbusting doctors, organizations with their own agenda, or the “internet genie.” It can be difficult to figure out what’s going on, and some outcomes may be surprising.
