Lavender essential oil. The name evokes thoughts of relaxing body lotions and a soothing day at the spa. But this essential oil powerhouse is capable of much more than scenting your cosmetics. Modern scientific studies reveal that this floral oil can compete with prescription pharmaceuticals when it comes to medicinal actions. From first aid to clinical anxiety, the essential oil has been backed by scientific study after scientific study.
In this 4-part online series, Dr. Jessie Hawkins walks you through the medicinal applications of this essential oil, taking it far beyond the spa and into your medicine chest with a wide range of applications. Dr. Hawkins draws from the scientific literature to demonstrate ways you can replicate this success at home with lavender oil and what you need to know to get the most from this bottle of essential oil.
The online event includes four sessions, each of which focuses on a unique attribute of lavender essential oil. Each session includes a solid, scientific approach to the applications of the oil.
