Each class is limited to 100 participants, and registrations are required to guarantee your space.

Essential Oil Blending Basics

with Tianne Curtiss, LMT (MA00013133)
on Wednesday, August 19, 2020 from 9:00 am to 10:00 am PST
online via ZOOM (link will be emailed to all registrants in advance)


In this class I will talk about the art of blending essential oils, as well as carrier oils and which are ideal for specific needs.

When we first begin using oils, most of us choose single oils and play with them on our own. Sometimes we will buy a synergy blend, which is a pre-blended combination of oils that all work well together and promote something specific such as relaxation, energy or maybe keeping bugs away. Although it can seem like an intimidating task to start blending our own oils, it’s really not as hard as it looks. With time and practice you can become more confident in blending as a result of learning how to blend, specific information on the oils and practicing. Blending is certainly more art than science, and there is some basic information that can get you on your way to creating amazing and beneficial blends. Join me for some blending basics.

REGISTRATION CLOSES 24 HOURS IN ADVANCE—AT *NOON* ON TUESDAY, AUGUST 18—to give us time to prepare the roster, schedule the class, and send the Zoom invite.
