Session 1: Essential Oils & Aromatic Plants in Ayurveda

week1.jpgAyurveda is a richly fragrant medical system. Every aspect of treatment and therapy is infused with aromas, which are emanating mostly from the essential oil content of the herbal ingredients being used. It is these aromas (and flavors) that provide many of the therapeutic benefits one enjoys when using Ayurveda’s vast number of diverse preparations.

Session 3: Using Essential Oils According to the Gunas (Mental & Physical Qualities)

week3.jpgEssential oils can be classified according to the 3 qualities of consciousness: sattvic (spiritual), rajasic (aggressive) and tamasic (dullness). They can also be classified according to Ayurveda’s system 10 opposite pairs of qualities, such as heating/cooling, drying/moistening and so on. Classifying oils according to their physical qualities and their effects on consciousness helps us understand and apply their therapeutic benefits.

In this session, you’ll:

  • Explore ways to use oils such as sandalwood and palo santo for promoting sattvic (spiritual) consciousness
  • Discover how to use flower oils such as lavender and chamomile to calm rajasic (aggressive) emotions
  • Identify simple ways of using energizing oils such as laurel to overcome tamasic consciousness (mental dullness)

Session 4: Using Essential Oils According to the Doshas & Sub-doshas
(Biological Systems)

week4.jpgOne of the most important ways to classify essential oils is according to the doshas, or constitutional body types. For vata conditions, oils that are warming, heavy, stabilizing, calming and strengthening should be used to help lubricate dryness and relax an overstimulated but fatigued nervous system. For Pitta conditions, oils that are cooling, calming and relaxing can be used for counteracting inflammation as well as overheated and aggressive mental and emotional states. For Kapha conditions, oils that are light, warm, stimulating, energizing, decongestant and expectorant are used to counteract slow metabolism, lethargy and congestion of fluid and phlegm.

In this session, you’ll:

  • Understand how the gunas (qualities) and elements of essential oils are related to individual body types
  • Discover the most important essential oils for calming Vata, cooling Pitta and decongesting Kapha

Session 6: Using Essential Oils for Increasing Prana & Ojas (Life Force & Nutrient Essence)

week6.jpgEssential oils are secondary metabolic compounds produced by plants for a variety of biological purposes, primarily immunological and reproductive. Because of the anatomical and physiological parallels between humans and plants, these compounds can be used therapeutically to enhance our own immunological resistance and rejuvenate the nutrient essence that supports both consciousness and sexual vitality.
