What do tomato paste, frankincense essential oil, and astaxanthin extract all have in common? Research has shown they can prevent and reverse UV induced skin damage, skin cancers and photoaging. April 4, Thursday, 6:00-9:00 p.m. Instructor: Jimm Harrison, Certified Aromatherapist 2.5 CEUs/PDAs

Learn about recent studies showing how plant based extracts with UV protective properties will help you increase your sun protection through foods and topical application of fixed oils (fruit, seed and nut) and essential oils.  Take home an essential oil skin care formulation that you can use as well as the formula so you can make it yourself to prevent and reverse sun damaged skin. 

Upon completion of the seminar you will be able to:

  • Explain how antioxidant properties in foods and plant extracts also contribute to sun protection properties
  • Describe four compound groupings with high UV protection and at least five of the foods and oils that contain them
  • List five essential oils, five foods, and five extracts that have been documented for protection against and reversal of sun induced UV damage
  • Formulate a topical blend using powerful antioxidant and sun protective essential oils and fixed oils
