"Throw away the crutch of knowledge and use the Knowing..." Thomas Elpel.

The Power of Plant Oils is a forum for learning about the therapeutic use of essential oils.
This 13 module course is a means of acquiring the knowledge and experience so you can KNOW the properties
and uses of the plants and their oils.

Please join us for an Introduction to Essential Oils workshop in Auburn, California on Thursday, April 25th from 7-9PM. This class is FREE! Details are listed to the right under course information.


A new Aromatherapy Certification Course begins Thursday, May 30th, at Lifestyle Wellness Center in Auburn, California. Please click on the link to the right for more information. Here's my philosophy: 

Dr. Lisa Moore
"I believe in experiential education with as much interaction and hands-on work as possible. We sample essential oils of all grades and types, pass around plants for students to touch, taste, and smell, and I encourage full participation from everyone in the class. Each person chooses two essential oils to research and present to the group. We have mini quizzes at the beginning of each lesson and a final exam at the end. This should prepare students to take and pass both the certification examination given by the Pacific Institute of Aromatherapy and the national registration examination offered by the Aromatherapy Registration Council.

"This class is for you if you are interested in acquiring an in-depth aromatherapy education to help you with patients or clients. It is specifically designed for heath care professionals who want the technical expertise to use essential oils in a clinical setting."

The good news is that more health professionals are becoming interested in learning about and applying aromatherapy in their work. The hospitals are starting to notice the benefits of essential oils and want to incorporate them in some areas of their facilities. Let's hope the interest continues to grow, especially in light of the recent outbreak of MRSA at a few area hospitals :-(
