Stress and difficult situations are carried as much by the body as the mind, often in the nervous system as a mild chronic flight of flight state.  Many indigenous traditions work with the wisdom of using methods of clearing the body to reset the nervous system back to a sympathetic and parasympathetic balance.  This workshop provides a  basic overview of the safe use of essential oils for nurses to support their own overall well-being. 

Clinical aromatherapy is the controlled use of essential oils for specific outcomes that are measurable. These effects can occur at a physical or psychological level. There is a science and an art to clinical aromatherapy – much as there is to conventional medicine. Clinical aromatherapy has an important role to play in healthcare.
