Young Living Essential Oils Classes

All Things Thieves

Sunday, September 22 – 2-4pm – Log House (2481 W. Canal Rd.)

Young Living’s unique Thieves blend is crafted in the tradition of four 15th-century French thieves who created a special aromatic combination of clove, rosemary, and other botanicals. Our Thieves products bring plant-based alternatives to your home, so you can replace harsh chemicals with naturally derived formulas that work hard and smell amazing.

Pets & Essential Oils
Thursday, September 25th – 6:30-8pm  Log House – FREE

Learn how to best help your pet the non-toxic way for their best life!  This class will focus mostly on dogs, but will touch a little on cats.  Essential oils can be used on most animals – dogs, cats, birds, fish, horses, livestock, ferrets, guinea pigs and rabbits.  Did you know there are canine reflexology points?  Many essential oil enthusiasts report the correlation between points on a dog’s hind paws and their body.  Learn more about Young Living’s Animal Scents products.
