Special Needs and Essential Oils Seminar
Nov 01, 2017 01:22AM
In 2014, a six-week pilot study of twelve children with special needs was conducted to demonstrate the effectiveness of essential oils. The children, ages four through nineteen, all had significant improvements, including focus, quieting the overactive, improved sleep, improved appetite and more. Of the twelve, nine were nonverbal. During the study, seven became verbal and remain verbal several years later. The facilitator, Nancy Weber, R.N., Certified Clinical Aromatherapist and Holistic Health Educator will discuss her findings, including when and where to apply the oils, which blends to use and more in her talk on November 3rd at 7 pm at the Integrative Wellness Center in Chester. Additionally, Weber’s subsequent study through the nonprofit AIRASE helped her gain a possible understanding as to why some changes can occur for one person and may not occur for another. She will be discussing the results of the study on November 17 at the IWC.
Weber hopes to improve the quality of life for all ages of special needs, both children and adults.
