New Mini Tear Pads for Essential Oil Classes

With school back in session, it’s the perfect time to get ready to teach new essential oil classes. AromaTools has some new materials that are perfect for sending your attendees home with the important information from your class.
These mini tear pads are less expensive and less bulky than regular sized tear pads, which makes them easy to carry around and to hand out to interested people or class attendees. Here are a few class ideas that you can do with each mini tear pad:

Aromatherapy Mini Tear Pad

The Aromatherapy Mini Tear Pad is great for teaching the basics of using essential oils aromatically. It includes information on how aromatic use is beneficial to the body and ways to diffuse or inhale the aroma of an essential oil. Also included are some perfume blends and diffuser blends. Here are a few ideas for using this tear pad in your essential oil classes:

Topical Application Mini Tear Pad

The Topical Application Mini Tear Pad teaches the basics of using essential oils topically. It includes information about why topical application benefits the body and ways to use essential oils topically. On the back, you will find essential oil suggestions for massage oil and a couple bath blends.

Dilution Mini Tear Pad

The Dilution Mini Tear Pad goes hand-in-hand with the Topical Application Mini Tear Pad, or it can be used separately. When teaching about using essential oils topically, you’ll want to include information about how to properly dilute essential oils for daily use, short-term use, or use on young, sensitive, or elderly skin. This tear pad includes common carrier oils for dilution, suggests roll-on bottles as handy aids, and has a dilution chart showing how many drops of carrier oil to use.

Internal Application Mini Tear Pad

The Internal Application Mini Tear Pad teaches which oils can be used internally, why internal use of essential oils can be beneficial for the body, and how to use essential internally. It also includes a few simple recipes for using essential oils in food or drink.

Essential Oils & Cooking Mini Tear Pad

The EOs & Cooking Mini Tear Pad outlines the benefits for using essential oils in your cooking, and the back covers guidelines for substituting essential oils for zest, herbs, or spices commonly used in cooking recipes. This tear pad can be used on its own or along with the Internal Application Mini Tear Pad.

  • Essential Oil Class Ideas: This tear pad is often used for a Cooking with Essential Oils class. Just give a little background about essential oils and how they can enhance the flavor of a dish and provide additional health benefits. Then prepare a simple dish using essential oils and allow your guests to sample it. Click here for cooking recipes that use essential oils.
  • Essential Oil Refreshments: If you want to include essential oil refreshments at any class, it may be a good idea to include this tear pad on the refreshment table so that your attendees can learn how to cook with essential oils on their own.

Class Idea: Essential Oil Crossword Puzzle

When teaching any subject, adding an element of fun helps the information stick. This crossword puzzle is designed to help cover several basic terms and definitions so your attendees aren’t lost when you teach your lesson about essential oils.

We suggest pairing this game with the “Introduction to Modern Essentials” booklet so your students have the answers at their fingertips. Plus, you can use this booklet as the “textbook” for your class! It also makes a great take-home gift—especially for newbies.

5 Ways to Use This Game in Your Classes

1. The Icebreaker: Before the actual class starts, group your attendees in twos or threes to work on the crossword puzzle together. This helps get them talking with each other, which makes everyone feel more comfortable and will help participation later in the class. We like the idea of starting the class with this game because it teaches basic terms and definitions to people who have no knowledge or experience with essential oils.

2. The Attention Grabber: If you are teaching an essential oil introductory class, you can use this puzzle to help teach these basic terms and definitions. Start out with everyone completing the crossword puzzle, and then cover any other terms or definitions you feel are important to understand so your attendees aren’t confused when you start throwing out EO terminology as you teach.

3. The Intermission Activity: If you have a lot of material to cover, it always helps to provide breaks to allow your attendees to process the information they’re learning. Bathroom breaks, water breaks, and refreshment breaks are all great, but sometimes having fun goes a long way in boosting the energy in your class! To increase participation in your game, try making it into a contest: “First one to finish gets a prize!” or “Bring your finished crossword puzzle to the front to be entered into a drawing.”

4. The Pop Quiz: When teaching an introductory essential oils class, you’ll cover many of these terms and definitions. Use this puzzle to test your participants’ knowledge of what was just covered. This can even be fun in an advanced essential oil class. Sometimes, even the experts need to be reminded of the basics!

5. The Final Test: Yes, this is similar to the pop quiz, but you can also use this puzzle at the end of any essential oil class. If you plan on giving your attendees a copy of “Introduction to Modern Essentials” at the end of your class, consider giving them this crossword puzzle as well to get them looking through the booklet. Just like the “Intro to Modern Essentials” Scavenger Hunt Activity, getting your attendees to look through the “Introduction to Modern Essentials” booklet and find the answers to the questions on the puzzle will show them all the possibilities of essential oils and may increase the likelihood of them trying (or even purchasing) essential oils. And if you want your attendees to do the “Final Test” before leaving, maybe allow a few minutes to finish it before starting your Q & A session or opening up the refreshments table.

Reducing Stress with Essential Oils

“Stress is the body’s response to difficult, pressured, or worrisome circumstances. Stress can cause both physical and emotional tension. Symptoms of stress include headaches, muscle soreness, fatigue, insomnia, nervousness, anxiety, and irritability.” (Modern Essentials, p. 341)

We all experience stress at some point in our lives. Some deal with stress almost constantly. And often times, little things can trigger a lot of stress. We live in a fast-paced environment that makes it difficult to slow down, take deep breaths, and calm our bodies—but this is what we need to do! Stress can be very harmful to our health, and it is important to learn how to deal with stress appropriately so it doesn’t control or ruin our lives.

Essential Oils for Stress:

According to Modern Essentials, the following oils may help reduce stress:
General Stress: lavender, Focus Blend, lemon, ylang ylang, bergamot, petitgrain, Joyful Blend, Restful Blend, grapefruit, Massage Blend, Roman chamomile, geranium, spikenard, Grounding Blend, frankincense, marjoram

Chemical Stress: lavender, rosemary, grapefruit, geranium, clary sage, lemon

Emotional Stress: Joyful Blend, clary sage, Reassuring Blend, bergamot, Comforting Blend, petitgrain, geranium, Roman chamomile, sandalwood

Environmental Stress: bergamot, cypress, geranium, cedarwood

Performance Stress: grapefruit, bergamot, ginger, rosemary

Physical Stress: Restful Blend, lavender, bergamot, geranium, marjoram, Roman chamomile, rosemary, thyme

Ways to Use Essential Oils to Reduce Stress

1. Aromatic Application
One of the best ways to get an essential oil quickly into our bodies for emotional balance is to inhale it. There are several ways to do this:

  • Inhale oil directly from the bottle.
  • Apply oil to hands, tissue, or nasal inhaler, and inhale.
  • Diffuse into the air with a diffuser.
  • Wear as perfume or cologne.

2. Topical Application
Most methods of topical application include relaxing your muscles as you apply the essential oil. This is especially helpful when dealing with stress because we tend to hold our stress in our muscles (i.e., tense shoulders, tight back, neck pain, etc.). Here are a few ways to apply essential oils topically for stress:

  • Add 5–10 drops of essential oil to 1 Tbsp. (15 ml) fractionated coconut oil, jojoba oil, or sweet almond oil, and massage on skin. Massage gently into tight muscles.
  • Add 1–2 drops to 1/4 cup (60 g) epsom salt, and dissolve in warm bathwater before bathing. Lavender essential oil is great for a relaxing bath!
  • Dilute oils as recommended, and apply 1–2 drops on neck, back, or bottoms of feet.

If you experience stress due to tiredness or insomnia, try this massage blend:
15 drops clary sage
10 drops lemon
5 drops lavender
2 Tbsp. (30 ml) Fractionated Coconut Oil

3. Essential Oil Stress Balloons
These stress balloons can be a great reminder to calm down if stress is overwhelming you. Plus, they are fun to play with (which can release endorphins and reduce stress).

Essential Oil Stress Balloons

  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Print

Ingredients & Supplies:

Instructions:

  1. In a glass bowl, mix together the epsom salt and essential oils until well combined.
    As you mix, break up as many clumps as you see so that the epsom salt doesn’t get stuck in the funnel.
  2. Place a funnel into the opening of the latex ballon, and carefully pour the epsom salt into the balloon. It is helpful to have a bowl beneath where you pour so you can catch any fallen salt and pour it into your balloon before tying it.
  3. Once all the epsom salt is in the balloon, pull the salt down into the balloon.
    Make sure the neck is clear of salt before tying off the balloon.
  4. To use, squeeze as you would a stress ball. After several squeezes, you should begin to smell the oil from inside the balloon.

Essential Oil Make & Take Class Idea

You can teach an essential oil class on reducing stress! Use the information in this article and Modern Essentials (see page references below) for your lesson. You can also use any of the following articles as well:
Living a Stress-Free and Healthy Life with Essential Oils
Using the “Introduction to Modern Essentials” as a Mini Textbook for Essential Oil Classes
Coloring with Essential Oil–Scented Pencils for Mental Health
Stress Less Diffuser Blend
Lavender Essential Oil Spotlight
Essential Oil Application: Aromatic

Modern Essentials, 8th Edition, p. 341 (“Stress”)
Modern Essentials, 8th Edition, pp. 266–69 (“Emotions”)
Modern Essentials, 8th Edition, pp. 224–25 (“Anxiety”)

Share the Power of Cooking with Essential Oils (with Provence Salt Recipe)

Cooking with essential oils can add a ton of flavor to a simple dish and take it from ordinary to extraordinary! Roman and Corinna Barrus have taught many cooking classes over the years and have now made it simple for you to use their knowledge to hold your own essential oil cooking classes. We’ve invited Corinna to tell us a little more about their class materials. Make sure to give their Provence Salt a try—it is delectable!

Many of us are looking for ways to eat better, create delicious dishes for our family, and share the power of essential oils with others. Summer is a great time to dive into the world of cooking and preparing foods with essential oils, as there are so many delicious fruits and vegetables available this time of year. And cooking with essential oils is a great way to share them with others, as people love to eat and gather together over a meal.

When Roman and I got started 7 years ago sharing essential oils and teaching others, we soon discovered you could cook and prepare amazing foods with bold flavors, which saved time and money over conventional food preparation: buying a bushel of herbs, washing, drying, cutting—and usually a portion of it going rotten in the fridge. We discovered that a drop or less of essential oil added to food or to salts, olive oil, or honey was a quick and powerful way to add that same flavor at a fraction of the time and cost. We also discovered (the hard way) that a little goes a long way and that a whole drop of oregano oil can quickly ruin a dish.

Just like using essential oils for health and in the home requires some basic education, so does cooking with essential oils. So we created Eatplant for these 2 groups: those who want to learn how to cook with essential oils, and those who want to teach others about the amazing benefits of essential oils using a cooking class. Eatplant is the brainchild of Roman and his countless hours in the kitchen concocting delicious meals for his family and friends and our team events. He was getting asked to teach more cooking classes than he could handle, and we quickly realized that we needed to share this information by creating some simple tools to educate people on how to cook with essential oils and how to teach simple, fun, duplicatable classes. We have found that cooking with essential oils is a subject people really want to learn about. Let’s face it: We all love to eat, and the way to a man’s heart (woman’s too, especially if there is chocolate involved) is through the stomach. The Eatplant tear pad and invitation give you a simple way to invite and teach a “cooking with essential oils” class, complete with great recipes to allow you to make some essential oil–infused dishes.

One of the recipes we share on the Cooking with Essential Oils Tear Pad and DVD 1 Cooking Class is Provence Salt. This recipe has become a favorite of thousands of people all across the world now. The Provence Salt was inspired by a traditional seasoning in French cuisine called the Bouquet Garni, which is used to season stocks, soups, meats, stews, and more. The traditional Bouquet Garni is made with fresh herbs usually consisting of rosemary, thyme, marjoram, basil, oregano, parsley, and sometimes others as well. The herbs are tied together by string and set in soups, stocks, and braises. The Provence Salt recipe replaces the need for the Bouquet Garni, saves time and money, and is more flavorful due to the potency of essential oils.

Provence Salt

  • Servings: Yield=2 Tbsp.
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Print

Ingredients & Supplies:

  • 2 Tbsp. (25–30 g) Himalayan or sea salt
  • 2 drops basil essential oil
  • 1 drop rosemary essential oil
  • 1 drop thyme essential oil
  • 1 drop fennel essential oil
  • 1 drop marjoram essential oil
  • 1 drop lavender essential oil

Instructions:

Mix ingredients together until thoroughly combined. This salt keeps for months in an airtight glass container and makes an amazing gift. Just sprinkle on food as you would salt for seasoning. This salt will soon become a family favorite!

We also saw that many people love to share but are not comfortable teaching classes, so we created the Eatplant DVD, which teaches the cooking class for you! It’s divided into sections that match the tear pad sections, so they can be used together, or you can use the DVD alone to learn or to teach others. The sections are Introduction, Let’s Talk about Essential Oils, How to Use Oils, Cooking with Oils, Eating Right, How to Get Essential Oils, and Suggested Essential Oil Cooking Sets. Everything is done in a simple and beautiful way to give you the basics and inspire you to develop your own creativity and signature style while creating delicious cuisine. For those who are ready to dive deeper into the world of cooking with essential oils and want more recipes, we created DVD 2, which has so many amazing recipes and dives deeper into cooking techniques to help you become an amazing home chef. We know how busy you are and how many things are on your plate, and we want to help simplify and demystify the world of cooking with essential oils.

About The Author


Corinna Barrus has been using essential oils for 25 years in her massage practice. It wasn’t until discovering medical-grade oils that she truly became passionate about the power of essential oils to create health and wellness physically, emotionally, and spiritually. She embraced a vision and mission to empower individuals, families, and healthcare professionals with the knowledge and tools to take healthcare into their own hands. She has seen firsthand the power of nature’s most potent medicine to help people heal and shift in ways both small and great.

After Corinna had been working her wellness business for 18 months, her husband, Roman, was able to retire from a 6-figure career to join Corinna and the mission to empower people to achieve greater health and abundance. Roman saw the potential of using essential oils in cuisine and took it from a hobby to an art and science! His love for cooking and essential oils has created a revolution in the kitchen. He and Corinna love sharing the health benefits of essential oils and leading a worldwide team to do the same.

First Aid Coconut Oil Soothing Balm Recipe

This soothing balm is specially formulated to have antiseptic, antimicrobial, analgesic (pain-relieving), and antibacterial properties. It soothes and moisturizes the skin and works well for all first aid injuries, including children’s boo-boos.

This recipe yields 6 oz. So, if you use 2 oz. salve containers, you can keep one at home, take one on-the-go, and give one to a friend.  Or, you could host a make & take class and send your attendees home with their own 1/4 oz. salve jar of balm.

First Aid Coconut Oil Soothing Balm

  • Servings: Yield=6 oz.
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Print

Ingredients:

Instructions:

  1. Melt the beeswax in a double boiler.
  2. Once the beeswax is melted, add the coconut oil. Remove from heat when melted, and add the melaleuca, frankincense, and lavender essential oils.
  3. Slowly add witch hazel to the mixture, using a hand blender to combine. Blend on high for a few seconds until well incorporated.
  4. Spoon the cooled cream into sealable glass containers. The salve is ready to use. It should go on smooth, and you can expect a waxy, balm-like texture. To avoid contaminating the cream with stray bacteria, try not to touch it directly with your hands. Instead, use a cotton swab or clean tissue to apply it to a wound.

Essential Oils for Cut Flowers

Who doesn’t love having decorative spring flowers to brighten their home? The only downside to bringing cut flowers inside is that they don’t seem to last very long. We have been experimenting with cut flowers, and we found that adding a drop of melaleuca to the water helps them last longer!

Useful tips when caring for cut flowers:

  • Cut the stems of the flowers at an angle. This allows the flower to soak up nutrients more easily.
  • Add a drop of melaleuca essential oil to a flower water mix (see recipe below). The melaleuca helps kill bacteria that leads to mold growth.
  • Use filtered water to reduce the amount of chlorine and other minerals or chemicals often found in tap water. These substances diminish plant health.
  • Change flower water and recut flower stems (just a tiny bit) every 2–3 days. A cut flower stem eventually seals up, preventing nutrient assimilation. So cutting the stems and adding more nutrients helps preserve the flowers.
  • Keep cut flowers away from direct heat and light (if possible).

Decorative Flower Vases

  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Print

Ingredients:

Instructions:

  1. Stir together sugar and melaleuca in a glass measuring cup.
  2. Add apple cider vinegar and filtered water. Mix well until sugar is dissolved.
  3. Add the water mixture to bottles or clear plastic tubes.
  4. Cut flower stems at an angle a little longer than the desired length. Arrange flowers in the bottles or tubes.
  5. Change flower water and cut stems just a little bit every 2–3 days.

Extra Ideas:

  • Clear plastic tubes make great single flower vases. You can easily decorate them by gluing ribbon, buttons, or other items to the outside.
  • If you are using cut flowers for an event—essential oil class, wedding reception, or party—you may want to use a floral essential oil instead of melaleuca to enhance the scent of your decoration. Then, when you are ready to display your flowers elsewhere (after 2+ days), add melaleuca essential oil to the replacement water. Some floral oils include lavender, ylang ylang, geranium, clary sage, Roman chamomile, jasmine, and rose.

Flower arrangements in glass bottles or clear plastic tubes make great centerpieces and decorations for essential oil classes!

Keys to Successful Essential Oil Classes (Including 50+ Class Ideas)

Teaching classes about essential oils can be a great way to share your love for essential oils with others—and it can be a great way to introduce others to essential oils and possibly increase sales if you’re a distributor.

Keys to a Successful Class

According to many people who have both taught and participated in essential oil classes, there are 3 main keys to giving a successful class:

  1. Gain knowledge and experience about what you are teaching.
  2. Keep your class focused on a specific, simple goal.
  3. Plan to allow the class members an opportunity to interact—both with you and with the oils.

Here are a few other things to keep in mind:

  • Keep it simple—don’t try to teach everything at once.
  • Love and have fun with what you are doing.
  • Share your own personal experiences.
  • Try to connect with your attendees by interacting with them.
  • Let people experience the essential oils as much as possible.
  • Have books, handouts, and other information available for those who would like to learn more.
  • Know (and be prepared to act on) all pertinent safety information for any essential oil you use during class.
  • Don’t try to fake what you don’t know.

Possible Class Ideas

While there are many different subjects that can be taught about essential oils and aromatherapy, it is best to pick an area that intrigues or interests you. This will help ensure that you are enthusiastic about the subject, which will help those in your class feel enthusiastic as well. Some of the most loved classes are make-and-take classes because the attendees are able to take something home with them to help them experience the essential oils for themselves. While the following list is in no way comprehensive, it is a great starting point and may help you generate some new ideas.
