Module 1: Essential Oils & Aromatic Plants in Ayurveda (April 20)

Ayurveda 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.

In this session, you’ll:

Explore how Ayurveda uses aromatic plants for medicines and aromatherapy
Discover the most important essential oils produced in India
Identify the safe uses and potential dangers of essential oils

Discover the traditional therapeutic uses of Indian attars (sandalwood-based perfumes)
Module 2: Using Essential Oils According to the Pancha Mahabhutas (Five Elements) (April 27)

Essential oils can be classified according to Ayurveda’s system of five universal elements of earth, water, fire, air and space. By understanding the predominant element or mixture of elements within an oil, we are better able to apply the oil therapeutically to balance these elements within ourselves.

In this session, you’ll:

Find out how to use essential oils, such as vetiver, that are rich in earth element for grounding and calming
Discover a wide range of carrier oils and aromatic waters for hydration and balancing of the water element
Explore the uses of essential oils such as cinnamon and other spices that are rich in fire element for stimulating metabolism

Module 3: Using Essential Oils According to the Gunas (Mental & Physical Qualities) (May 4)

Essential oils can be classified according to the three 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)
Understand how to classify and use essential oils according to their primary qualities of heating/cooling, stabilizing/activating, moistening/drying and other polarities
Module 4: Using Essential Oils According to the Doshas & Sub-doshas (Biological Systems) (May 11)

One 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
Explore the Ayurvedic system of the 15 sub-doshas (five vatas, five pittas, five kaphas), and how essential oils can be correlated to each

Module 5: Using Essential Oils According to the Dhatus (Tissue Levels) (May 18)

Essential oils and aromatic plants can be applied in various ways to benefit each of the tissue levels described by Ayurveda. These treatments include aromatic preparations for the digestive juices, blood, muscles, fat, bones, marrow and reproductive system.

Module 6: Using Essential Oils for Increasing Prana & Ojas (Life Force & Nutrient Essence) (May 25)

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.

In this session, you’ll:
