Therapeutic Use of Essential Oils
In this course you are learning to work with the oils in a different way than aromatherapy. We are directly applying essential oils to the skin (diluted) through light touch to activate acupuncture points. By combining the principles of Chinese medicine and the indications of using an acupuncture point with the chemical and energetic properties of the essential oil, you get an additive effect to the treatment making it very powerful. It also allows you to directly influence your horse's energy and therefore health.
In this course we are not discussing all the indication for each oil. You will be working with essential oils in balancing the 5 Elements. If you want a more comprehensive experience with the oils, consider taking Horses and Healing Oils where we discuss 28 individual oils at length and the use of them in treating many aspects of your horse's health.
