Did you know that essential oils are some of the most powerful tools in the Ayurvedic practitioners toolbox for restoring health, balancing energetic types (doshas) and optimizing our life force (prana)? It’s true! The simple daily use of these oils can have a profound effect, bringing us more balance, harmony and vibrant health.
Join in for a complimentary virtual workshop with Floracopeia founder David Crow this Wednesday, April 27, called: The Ayurvedic Use of Essential Oils for Healing: Ancient Remedies to Safely Balance Your Energy System.
David is a brilliant teacher and one of the most respected botanical medicine pioneers in the world. There is perhaps no better guide for working with essential oils, as David unifies wisdom from many streams of healing practices.
Are you ready to discover how to use essential oils to enhance your immune system, cultivate more prana, dispel inflammation and
relax your mood?
Receive profound Aromatherapy insights to access the power of essential oils such as rose, vetiver, sandalwood, agarwood and jatamansi for your health, wellbeing and personal transformation.
Have you marveled at the sheer beauty and diversity of plants and their often miraculous ability to heal our bodies and minds? Have you been fascinated by the way essential oils can affect your emotions and expand your consciousness? Curiosity about plants’ powers has led to a profound new understanding that links our biology, our ecology, our consciousness and our felt sense of connection with all of life.
Ancient systems of natural healing, such as Ayurveda, have shown us that plants have remarkable properties that can help transform our life’s journey. They can heal our bodies, open our minds, and even reverse aging. And, beyond the benefits to our physical health, they can put us into a state of deeper communion with the natural world. This subject is not only the province of mystics, shamans and natural medicine practitioners, but is increasingly vital for all of us to maintain healthy bodies and a thriving Earth.
The ancient science of Ayurveda offers a fascinating and highly refined system for healing that’s particularly focused on balancing the energies in the body — what it calls “doshas” — and what we might think of as “energetic types.” Each energetic type tends to go out of balance in specific ways, which can lead to dysfunctions such as emotional turbulence, lethargy, sickness or ungroundedness. For example, vata types are governed by air and are prone to be ungrounded and cold, with flighty temperaments, unless they are properly balanced by the right food, medicinals and activities.
Essential oils have long played an important role in rebalancing our systems within Ayurveda, from ancient times to modern. In this exciting online seminar, featuring one of the most respected botanical medicine pioneers in the world, David Crow, you’ll learn about how to approach healing with essential oils based on Ayurvedic principles. You’ll understand what’s important for each energetic type as well as how to receive the most benefit from specific remedies using oils such as rose, vetiver, sandalwood, agarwood and jatamansi. There is perhaps no better guide for this new paradigm of working with essential oils than Floracopeia founder David Crow, who unifies wisdom from many streams of healing practices.
For over 30 years, David has pioneered a path for harnessing the power of plants and their ability to infuse your body, mind and soul with more organic wisdom and a sustainable connection with all of life. With all the poor-quality information about essential oils floating around, many people have had bad experiences. David will help clear away the misconceptions and show you a safe, non-invasive and effective way to use essential oils to balance your body, harmonize your environment and bring vibrant health into your life.
In this exciting one-hour free virtual seminar, you’ll discover:
- How to use essential oils in safe ways in your home “medicine cabinet” (as well as what NOT to do)
- How to determine the best essential oils for your body type
- That each essential oil represents a type of prana, each of which connects with specific health concerns
- Specific ancient recipes for skin and respiratory application of oils that enhance your immune system, cultivate more prana, dispel inflammation and relax your mood
- A deeper understanding of how your olfactory system works on your mind, emotions and biorhythms
