AROMATHERAPY COURSE TO BE HELD

Well-known aromatherapy specialists Bryan and Light Miller will be conducting a course in October on St. Thomas in the use of essential oils for physical, mental and emotional health.
The Millers are co-authors of "Ayurveda and Aromatherapy."
Aromatherapy is the art and science of using scent and aroma to beautify, rejuvenate, revitalize, support and heal the body.
"Alternative medicine is today seeing a resurgence of ancient healing techniques, " according to Bryan Miller.

Ayurveda and aromatherapy both offer insight and alternative to health care that are tried and true."
The course will cover:
– History
– Chemistry
– Preparation of salves, blended, oils, perfumes and aphrodisiac blends
– Combined color and aroma therapy
– Hair and beauty care
– Medicinal uses
– Connection between psychology and the olfactory nerves.
– Principles of blending
– Contra-indications
– Safety
The classes will be held from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sat. Oct. 7 and Sun. Oct. 8.
Attendees will receive a certificate for 20 hours of continuing education (CEU credits).
The two-day class costs $320 – $290 if received by Sept. 25.
