Essential oils have been used for thousands of years so I will give you a very brief look at some of the history of essential oil usage and how 4 thieves used essential oils to steal the possessions from people who had died from the bubonic plague but because they rubbed this specific essential oil combination on their skin, they did not die and could freely walk around stealing  jewelry and money from the dead bodies.

A 2 minute history lesson on essential oils and aromatherapy.

Lets look at the different ways that essential oils are extracted. we go into the world of essential oils, CO2 extracts, absolutes and hydrolats. What are all of these? You are about to find out.

It is essential(excuse the pun) to know what to look for when buying essential oils. The final lecture in the course I give my recommendation for a company that has 100% pure, unadulterated essential oils that I really like and they are also at great prices.

Buying your essential oils
05:26

When you spend your hard earned money on E.O.s it is important to know how to look after them and also the shelf life of the different essential oils as they can vary greatly.

Storing your essential oils and their shelf life
03:44

In a perfect world, we would buy all organic essential oils but the availability and cost makes it very difficult for most of us. However, I think because of the extraction method of citrus essential oils it is really important to buy organic when possible.

This is important when buying citrus essential oils
00:45

Just because your citrus oils may be old, we still can use them so don't ditch them just yet.

Don't throw out those citrus essential oils just yet!

There are testing methods that can detect essential oil purity. They are really the gold standard in testing methods that we have today and helps a lot to check whether the essential oil has been adulterated. You should always look to see that your oils that you are going to buy have been tested.

So how do they test essential oils for purity?

+ The art of blending the notes
15 lectures 01:09:27

Let's get started on learning how to blend.

Welcome to section 2.
00:40

A diffuser is one of the most common ways to appreciate essential oils, here are some fabulous combinations for you to try. 

Which diffusers do I prefer and why?
02:53

There is a lot of talk about diffusing essential oils with pets, especially cats because they don't metabolize certain constituents of some essential oils as well. Please make your own decisions but I have provided you with links here to hear what experts in the field recommend. I personally have diffused essential oils for over 30 years and owned cats and dogs and have never had any problems

The first is from World expert in essential oil safety Robert Tisserand and his thoughts

https://tisserandinstitute.org/cats-essential-oil-safety/

The second is from Melissa Shelton Melissa Shelton DVM attained her degree from The University of Minnesota College of Veterinary Medicine in 1999. She is the owner of Crow River Animal Hospital in Howard Lake, MN – where her work with the medical use of essential oils for animals began in 2008. In 2011, she dedicated her practice solely to the research and advancement of veterinary aromatic medicine.

At the end of all this, I imagine I am preaching to the converted because I would expect that if you are studying an aromatherapy course, there is a good chance that you have a cat and a very good chance that you diffuse essential oils in your house...and millions worldwide do the same thing and cats are not dying left, right and center.


Should you diffuse essential oils in the house with cats around?

Let's take a look at how to blend by using their specific notes. It is not necessary to blend using the notes and in the following sections you will see that I don't focus on the notes so much, but you can change any of the formulas of their essential oils with the knowledge that you learn in this section. One of the biggest problems I have found when trying to make a blend is knowing which qualities each oils has. For example, if you want to make a soothing massage blend which of your essential oils are considered soothing? Here I give you a ton of PDF files for you to download so that you can refer to them and also know their specific notes if you want.

Learning to blend the notes
05:15

Essential oils are extremely potent and need to be treated with care. Please read the safety guidelines in the resources. It is extremely important that you observe the dilution rates at all times so that you do not have any reactions to the oils. As always, do a test patch first with new oils to make sure. Please note that I have two different dilution tables regarding the number of drops. As I mention in the lecture, drops vary greatly due to the viscosity of the oils and also the sizes of the orifice reducers vary too (between 20-35 drops). What I have done in this lecture is given you a very simple and easy way to remember the dilution rates. I have also given you a dilution table from Robert Tisserand where he puts the drops somewhere in the middle (the average size) of the 20-35 drops size range. You can use either table you like, mine or the one from Tisserand.
