In this new advanced online certificate course, Gabriel Mojay invites practitioners to join him in a special study of the biological activities and practical therapeutic uses of 12 major aromatic herbs from key pharmacological, Oriental-energetic, and psychospiritual perspectives.

The central aim of the course - a series of six 2.5-hour webinars - is to provide practitioners with

an introduction to Aromatic Herbal Medicine with respect to the effective and safe use of herbs

including those derived from the genera Angelica, Boswellia, Carum, Cinnamomum, Citrus, LavandulaMatricaria, Melissa, Rosa, Salvia, and Santalum.

Joining Gabriel for the 2nd of the six webinars will be Denise Cusack, a leading clinical herbalist and past president of the American Herbalist Guild (AHG) and Executive Director of Herbalists Without Borders (HWB). Denise will share with participants a range of practical methods in which they can prepare aromatic herbs for simple therapeutic and home use.

Gabriel’s approach will be ‘phenomenological’ in nature… in other words, we will explore every aspect of the aromatic plant under study— its botany, phytochemistry and pharmacology; taste and fragrance energetics, therapeutic activities from research-based and traditional vitalistic (TCM and Ayurveda) perspectivesand its unique psychospiritual faculties based on a grasp of the plant’s ethnobotany, age-old symbolism, neuro-psycho-pharmacology, and its foundational taste and fragrance energetics.

For Aromatherapists in particular, the course will provide an opportunity to expand their knowledge of important plant compounds of a non-volatile nature occurring in aromatic plants, which bring to the individual important benefits consistent with those of widely-occurring essential oil constituents. Indeed, they will come to understand just how important these constituents and activities are, in terms of availing oneself of their ability to protect against serious diseases - including cancer and heart disease - as a result of that ability to counter the free radicals which are the foundation of cell damage, cellular degeneration, and (premature) aging.

Join Gabriel and IJHPA host Lora Cantele with Special Guest Lecturer Denise Cusack for this fascinating study of aromatic plants and their essential oils from the ground up, as it were, and gain the knowledge, know-how and confidence needed to make recommendations regarding this incredibly useful range of safe-to-use herbal tisanes, decoctions, and extracts!
