Chemotypes and Species

What is a chemotype? There are different species? When it comes to essential oils, there is SOOO much to know. Did you know that the exact same plant grown in different ecosystems can produce very different EOs? It's true! And, there can be several different species of plant that all use the same common name on the EO label! Take Cedarwood for example, there are 3 popular species of cedar that are made into EOs and they all have different chemistry, but they are often all labeled 'Cedarwood', so how do we know what we are getting? If you're interested in deeper learning about essential oils, sign up for this class!

Partner Massage Private Lesson

Do you have an important person in your life that could benefit from daily or frequent massage? Would you like to be able to help them in between professional sessions? I can offer you basic knowledge and skill training! I think everyone can relate to "honey can you please just rub my shoulders for 5 minutes?" And then you try, but your hands quickly become sore and tired. In these lessons I teach basic body mechanics, basic massage techniques, and a little anatomy. 

Contact Kaia to request a lesson. Each lesson is 2hrs long and you'll need to bring your friend or partner with you.

I started my Aromatherapy journey back in 2015. I found myself reading the warning label on the back of a cleaning product and wondered why it says to wear gloves while using this product, and yet it's "safe" to have all over my surfaces for me and my pets to touch after? Hmm... So I started looking into making my own cleaning products so I knew exactly what was in them and just like that my love for pure botanical products was on a roll and I've never looked back! 

 

I look forward to helping you expand your knowledge about aromatherapy!
