Scents and Sensibility: Clinical Aromatherapy In Midwifery Practice

May 20 @ 8:00 am - 12:00 pm

This introductory Aromatherapy Workshop will make sense out of Clinical Aromatherapy.  This will be an interactive learning experience.  A brief historical review of essential oils as a healing methodology and the most recent renaissance of Aromatherapy in practice will be discussed.  Attendees will learn how essential oils are made, how they are absorbed and excreted in the body, and their effects on physical and emotional well-being.   Attendees will have the opportunity to participate in safe application. Five important essential oils related to Women’s Health will be presented.  Current research will be cited for each of the oils presented. Challenges in integrating aromatherapy into practice will be discussed and an aromatherapy guideline utilized in an academic midwifery practice will be presented.  Join me and indulge your senses and make sense out of this popular complimentary modality in which we as midwives can comfortably use in our practice.
