10 Scents for an active life in balance


Workshop summary

Are you faced with acute or chronic stress? Are you having trouble falling asleep or staying asleep throughout the night? Are you facing energy loss or experiencing an exhausting state of euphoria?

In this workshop you will discover how 10 scents can support your well-being and how you can use them in a convenient and safe way at home, at work and on the road.

From traditional use to evidence-based science

Dating back to the oldest cultures, through the Egyptian, Greek and Roman eras into modern pharmacology, plants play a significant role in human health and important life cycles: sadness, farewell, renewed energy at every new start. Today, evidence-based research brings insight in the interaction of aromatic plant constituents with our psyche, emotions and bodily functions. Aromatic plant extracts are extensively researched for their objective action on cognitive performance, their subjective effects on our mood and their action on stress, anxiety, depression and sleeping problems.

Participation in this workshop is safe during pregnancy and breastfeeding. Special precautions, where applicable, are communicated in the course of the workshop.
