Essential oils have become popular and new research is surfacing showing how essential oils (aromatic compounds that come from plants) affect mood, neurochemistry, and the stress response.
Many practitioners are interested in using essential oils in their practice but are unaware of the basics of using essential oils for emotions, what is safe and what is not, what essential oils do what for the brain and for mood, and how a client might best benefit from using essential oils.
Similarly, while the research on emotional intelligence has been published for many years in the field of organizational behavior, it is becoming more mainstream and many psychologists and health professionals have not acquainted themselves with this current research and how to make it applicable for patient care.
This course combines a better understanding of using essential oils for mood with research on emotional intelligence. It provides in-depth science on essential oils for mood and contains details (backed with recent research) on using essential oils for emotions.
Combining the two concepts together (essential oils and emotional intelligence) is a method that practitioners can use to support their patients (i.e., clients can increase emotional intelligence by using essential oils to support emotional awareness as well as impact their emotions as a solution for low mood). This process of action alone increases emotional intelligence.
