The World of Aromatic Treasures - Essential Oil Appreciation 1-9  

Long before aromatherapy was developed, people from every culture collected aromatic plants from their environment and used them to beautify themselves as well as to (in their belief) keep evil spirits out of their home. Today, we are able to access hundreds of plant aromatics from all over the world in pure essence form. Out of about 500 essential oils on the market today, Aromancy has selected 185, and given each a dedicated place, such that they have gained additional powers beyond commonly known efficacy. We will go through many of them to learn the following:

1. Name, origin, plant parts used, and distillation method

2. Scent profile/character, energetic direction. 

3. Messages from plants.
