is that we can respond to individual needs.
Urbana, Iowa (Vocus) January 9, 2008
Nervous about flu shots? This Wednesday, January 9, 2008, at 8:00pm Eastern/5:00pm Pacific, join Tim Blakley -- author, herbalist, and aromatherapist -- for his next hour-long online chat. Mr. Blakley will host his third live podcast with a focus on using essential oils for protecting yourself and your family from cold and flu bugs.
Essential oils can provide a natural barrier against viral illnesses through their anti-microbial properties. Learn how to create totally natural essential oil blends to ward off illnesses, boost your immune system and make your own comforting natural cold care products if someone does catch a cold.
The series of live podcast chats, an extension of Aura Cacia's popular Ask the Expert Q&A feature on its web site, will continue next month with Blakley's tips on aromatherapy love potions just in time for Valentine's Day.
Blakley, aromatherapy trainer for Aura Cacia, has been deeply involved with herbs and aromatherapy for over 25 years, and he is particularly passionate about aromatherapy--the use of pure botanical scents to affect mood and well being. He's a certified aromatherapist who makes essential oils a part of his own daily routine and conducts hundreds of seminars on the subject each year.
"The interactive aspect of my in-person trainings is extremely enjoyable for me," says Blakley, "and it allows participants to ask specific questions on topics most useful to them. I'm looking forward to having similar personal exchanges as a part of these live chats, and answer questions that help people incorporate aromatherapy in their everyday lives."
Blakley will begin his program each month by presenting ideas and tips and then will take questions and encourage participants to share their own aromatherapy experiences. He emphasizes that people with all levels of aromatherapy knowledge are welcome to participate. "One of the advantages of the interactive format," he says, "is that we can respond to individual needs."
