Aromatherapy & Mental Wellness with Tresa Laferty

Class Level: 

Special Topics




Metal wellness is a topic that has been rightly put into the spotlight in the last few years. Our sense of smell is directly linked to the limbic system, the brain’s emotional center. This is a significant aspect of mood regulation. This shows why certain scents can bring up memories, trigger emotions, or impact our behavior. Adding to this the Ayurvedic understanding of the chakra system, we know that the sense of smell is directly linked to feeling safe and grounded. Exploring emotional stability using the essences can be a profound experience. Handouts and personal exploration time included.
