Medicinal Herbs: Aromatherapy

Pera Adult

  • January 11, 2022 / 19:30

We learn about the use of medicinal herbs and aromas in the Ancient Egyptian, Ancient Greek and Byzantine civilizations, and find out about the development of modern aromatherapy. We gain knowledge about essential oils of true lavender (Lavandula angustifolia), eucalyptus (Eucalyptus globulus), and fixed oil made from jojoba (Simmondsia Chinensis), which are some of the key components of aromatherapy, and discover their practical uses in our daily lives and environments. In the workshop, we learn about aromatherapy and its common uses. Then, we create our own oil mixture for inhalation.

José Sancho does not conceal the voluptuousness of his female torsos; he highlights it. These torsos are symmetrical from front, but on the other hand, from the side, the juxtaposition of concave and convex forms creates dynamism.
