GREENVILLE — Essential oils have been used for millennia as a powerful form of healing and as a way to enrich physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual well-being.
The Greenville Public Library is proud to host a presentation by Debbie Mitchell on the principles and facts about essential oils – what they are, how to use them, when to use them, and why to use them! This free event is scheduled for Wednesday, July 13 at 6 p.m. Seating is limited to 45 participants.
Mitchell is the owner of Greenville Health Shoppe at 628 Wagner Ave. which she started 24 years ago. The services she offers include Reflexology, Cranio-Sacral Therapy, Aromatherapy, and other mind-body modalities. A wide variety of foods, herbs, vitamins, and formulas are available from popular product lines such as Young Living Essential Oils, Nature Sunshine, Enzymatic Therapy, NOW, Nutra, Solaray, and Melalecu. Mitchell is well educated and trained in all these areas.
“She explains that we must all take responsibility for ourselves and have healthy habits rather than rely on too many medications,” said a spokesperson. “Often we don’t know how to process our emotions so that they can become negative and detrimental to health. She says an emotion is energy in motion and responsibility is the ability to respond. This point of view empowers us to take positive, practical actions on our own behalf.”
The use of essential oils can be part of that action. Mitchell describes how an oil works in that its molecules piggy-back onto the cells of the body and go deeply into the body’s tissues where they affect healing by re-aligning the molecules of a troubled area. Many medicines use the same molecules but in an unnatural form which cannot reach as deeply. An essential oil not only smells good but has a chemistry that heals.
“Debbie asks that you bring your questions and concerns to discuss after her talk,” organizers said. “Don’t miss this educational and inspiring program. Light refreshments will be served.”
