This workshop will describe the science behind essential oils, the do’s and don’ts of using them, and ways essential oils can enhance your families mental and physical health. Using the ITOVI, a portable scanner, participants will receive a personalized report of which essential oils their body has the strongest response to at the time of the scan.
