Awareness of essential oils is growing rapidly, and combining them with herbs is a potent approach for healing. We are fortunate to have David Crow teach how to use them safely and effectively in this two part webinar, Combining Herbs and Essential Oils: Highly Effective Remedies for Common Health Challenges.
In part one of this presentation, David Crow discussed incorporating formulas of herbs and essential oil blends for digestion and detoxification for a wide range of uses. You may review Part One in Hawthorn’s Webinar Archives.
In part two, David Crow addresses herb and oil blends for relaxing and for strengthening the nervous system. We will learn formulas for reducing stress and tension, tension headaches, nervousness and irritability, and stress related insomnia. Additionally, formulas for supporting cognitive functions, protecting the brain against toxins and aging, increasing memory and concentration, and enhancing learning capacity are discussed. Many of these herbs and oils are also antidepressant and increase resistance to stress.
