Essential Therapeutic Oils with Karen Cronk


Thursday, November 27, 7:00

In this presentation by Karen Cronk you will find out how therapeutic oils can provide an alternative approach to physical, emotional, spiritual, and mental healing.

Plants contain complex and powerful substances known as essential oils. These are aromatic liquids derived from shrubs, flowers, trees, roots, bushes, and seeds. These distinctive components defend plants from insects, harsh environmental conditions, and disease. They are also vital for a plant to grow, live, evolve, and adapt to its surroundings. Referred to as the essence of the plant, pure essential oils not only protect the plant, but also determine its aroma.

Essential oils have been used throughout time dating back to 4500 BC. From perfumes and aromatherapy to cooking and medicinal purposes, essential oils have been used in everyday life for centuries. In modern days, research shows that pure essential oils can provide similar benefits to humans and animals that they give to plants.

Karen Cronk is a silver executive for Young Living Essential Oils.  She began the practice of holistic healing after using essential oils to improve her own health and wellness.  After experiencing personal improvements she opened a whole shopping account with the Young Living company.

Everyone is welcome!
