In this webinar, clinical herbalist Erika Galentin of Sovereignty Herbs will be exploring the role of aroma and its influence on emotions and the psyche as a critical tool in supporting our clients, and ourselves, on our journeys to wellness. We will take a brief tour of olfactory perception and its relationship to memory and emotion, as well as discuss how emotions such as grief and shame, which come up regularly in herbal practice, have significant impacts on physiology. Erika will also cover ways in which aroma from plants, including but not limited to the use of essential oils, can be incorporated into daily self-care routines.
