Program:  Essential Oils 101 - Laurie Allman Hanken
 
In this world of increasing healthcare costs, aches, pains and sickness have become somewhat of a norm. All you have to do is watch TV to see all the advertisements for pharmaceuticals.  
Guest speaker Laurie Allman Hanken explained that there is a natural wellness community that is "alive and well with options to help keep us physically and mentally well", and that  essential oils "are a big part of that movement."  
Hanken noted that essential oils occur naturally in the environment, adding, "The next time you drive by a field of fresh peppermint or hike through a pine forest, breathe deeply—you’re experiencing the soul-soothing power of essential oils."
