Health lecture: Anxiety, stress relief using essential oils
ROCKLAND — Clinical Aromatherapist Nancy Lubin will give a talk on anxiety and stress relief using essential oils, Sunday, Jan. 27, at Good Tern Natural Foods Co-op. The event will run 2:30 - 4 p.m.
Essential Oils are steam-distilled, or expeller-pressed products of certain plants desired for their fragrance and therapeutic properties.
In her talk, Lubin will introduce these products and their safe use. She will then discuss how and why essential oils are considered a “go to” for relaxation and stress amelioration. And why different aromas address different aspects of anxiety.
She will demonstrate several ways to incorporate essential oils into the home, workplace or travel.
Lubin studied aromatherapy at the Aromahead Institute and with Rhiannon Harris Lewis of La Martre, France. She studied aromatic medicine in Australia with Mark Webb and earned a diploma in advanced aromatic medicine last year. For 15-plus years, she has focused on the chemistry and safety aspects of aromatherapy.
She is a certified life coach and Zentangle teacher, and practices aromatherapy at Camden Whole Health.
