Take an aromatic journey through the world of essential oils and discover which ones support excitatory neurotransmitters (like dopamine) and inhibitory neurotransmitters (like serotonin) naturally so that you can support your brain’s desire to maintain homeostasis. This class also includes recipes and a take home stress relief spray and inhaler. Learn how you can use essential oils to help decrease your client’s stress level during session—as well as your own.
