Speaker: Sato Kano    

Topics: 'Essential oils during pregnancy' 


Learn how to use essential oils in a safe and fun way to assist in pregnancy and labor! Pregnancy is a time when we become hyper sensitive to what we ingest, the products that we use, and the chemicals around us. Through this workshop, we hope to empower you in ways to use therapeutic grade essential oils to naturally manage discomforts (and make you feel amazing!), assist in preparing the body for labor, and using oils during labor.

We will also prepare a simple Make n Take for everyone. Please join us! 

Time & date: Thursday 10th November, 11:30am
