Join us for A CARE Intensive at the Young Living Highland Flats Farm!!!

This program provides practical applied aromatherapy skills for professionals who choose to integrate essential oils into their practices, as well as for the non-professionals who want to increase the health and well being of themselves, family, and friends. Participating in a CARE Intensive can lead to a Certified Raindrop Technique Specialist status and/or Certification as a CARE Instructor. 

In this course, participants will learn the fundamentals of aromatherapy, the science and chemistry of essential oils, and how to use essential oils to facilitate emotional release--for others, as well as for themselves. Thirteen specific VitaFlex techniques will be taught, practiced and experienced by all participants. Participants will learn the history and benefits of Raindrop Technique and how to apply it safely. Every participant will receive a full Raindrop Technique session.

Raindrop originated in the 1980's through the research of Dr. D. Gary Young. Raindrop is a powerful, non-invasive tool integrating the art of aromatic science with the technique of Vitaflex and gentle applications of therapeutic grade oils on the feet and back. The purpose of Raindrop Technique is to stimulate every organ, muscle and bone at a cellular level bringing the body into structural and electrical balance, enabling the release of toxins wherever they may be. This may include those lodged in the mind and emotions.

Vitaflex is an ancient healing modality that was rediscovered by Stanley Burroughs in the late 1920's. Vitaflex is a digital electrical stimulation that activates neuro pathways, delivering benefits of the essential oils. The body has a self-regulating electrical system that Vitaflex stimulates.

Is emotional baggage keeping you from being the person you were designed to be? Clinical research shows that traumatic experiences are stored on a cellular level and have profound effects on one's emotions and the physical state of the body. During an Emotional Release session, essential oil blends are both applied and inhaled. These blends are formulated for their unique ability to:
   ~ Balance energies in the body and open the subconscious mind
   ~ Promote emotional release of negative stored memories
   ~ Program the mind with positive beliefs
Class Participants will acquire an understanding of how essential oils may facilitate clearing of negative emotional patterns through lecture, demonstration, and a "Break-Out" session.

Become inspired as you witness God’s hand in the creation of the molecules within Essential Oils following “The Chemistry of Essential Oils Made Simple”.  Dr. Stewart’s miraculous insights combine science and religion and demonstrate how chemistry reflects God’s deep love for his children.  Scripturally based, this class explores the composition of essential oils, as well as their profound healing effects when accompanied by prayer and faith.  Wonderful anecdotes of scientific discovery, chemical compositions, exceptional indexes, cross references and cross-indexed tables of botanical names will be explored. You will also gain a scientific understanding of how the compounds of essential oils reach to cellular levels and how they bring therapy to the various organs and tissues of the body.

Ancient Scripture is full of hundreds of references to "precious" oils: Aloes, Cassia, Frankincense, Galbanum, Hyssop, Balm, Spikenard, Cedarwood, Myrrh, and many more. They were considered: "the best products of the land," "the work of a skilled apothecary," "most holy" and "treasured gifts." This seminar will help clarify the valuable roles of essential oils in ancient and modern day health care and show how they are intricately designed by our Creator.

“The principles that I learned were really life-changing and the way that you taught them was very heart-centered, very spiritual but also very supported by research and science. It has made it easy to talk about and explain the effects of, even though I hadn’t taken any science/chemistry since high school! The Bible oils section was so interesting too, fascinating to realize that oils and their uses were a “science” and therapy in themselves for so long. And we are so fortunate to be able to use them now in our massage work. Just an amazing course, time and money well spent. Thanks!!”
