Dinner: 6:00 pm

Essential oils have been an integral part of the daily lives of people for over ten thousand years. They have been used to support the body, mind and spirit since before the time of record keeping as we know it. In this workshop, we will focus on the twelve oils mentioned most frequently in the Bible. We will learn the Bible verses that reference these oils and we will compare how they were used in Biblical time with how they are used today.
