Resourcing the Nervous System with Aromatic Botanicals
Our collective experience in the past 2 years has been dynamic, encouraging all of us to find diverse and meaningful ways to support and nourish ourselves through these times. Supporting, nourishing and steadying the nervous system provides foundational support to the entire body to find balance.
When we inhale the aroma of a fragrant botanical, the aromatic molecules travel up the nose where they are registered by the nerves of the olfactory membranes in the nose lining. Olfactory responses to odors induce the brain to stimulate the release of hormones and neurochemicals that in turn alter the body’s physiology and behavior having a profound impact with the emotional, mental and spiritual bodies of wellness.
Utilizing the magical Botanical Gardens at Innisfree Farm participants will be guided through an interpretive herb walk with a focus on the aromatic compounds of certain herbs.
- Using our senses we will immerse into the plant medicine of each herb
- Potential Extraction method and aromatic profile of plant will be discussed
- There will be an emphasis on an ethical approach and how to work with whole plant aromatherapy.
