From Seed to Blossom

Nourishing the Essence with Essential Oils and Chinese Medicine

Essential oils are the essence of the plant and speak directly to your essence. Connecting with your essence you can begin to choose what you wish to grow within, what you wish to weed out and how you want to cultivate your journey in this life.

Course Overview

We’ll take a look at essential oils made from seeds, roots, branches and flowers as we explore how you can engage the essence in your body to nourish, enrich, heal and grow. Each special plant part offers unique functions that support our bodies, hearts and minds in novel ways, inviting you into a deeper relationship with nature while nurturing yourself. When you nourish the essence you strengthen your foundation, creating security and stability while fostering creativity and inspiration.


Offered are some basics for working with the essential oils. Some of the oils featured are Caraway Seed, Carrot Seed, Jasmine, Neroli, Cedarwood and Vetiver. We’ll also take a look at some Chinese herbal medicinal essential oils such as Bai Zi Ren, Wu Wei Zi and Dang Gui.

  • *CEU/CPD Approvals

    Some accreditation bodies have course approval expirations. If the approval expires, you will see a notice next to the name with a date of expiration: "[Until YYYY/MM/DD]". Please factor this date into your own renewal deadline. If an approval expires, you will be able to request that it is renewed and we will submit it for you within 2 business days. Renewals normally come back to us after 30 days.

    If your accreditation body is not listed under the "Approved" section, you may find it under the "Pending" section. That means that it is either currently pending approval, or that it is available for you to request: "[Upon Request]". New course approvals usually come back to us after 45 days.
