Experience Essential Oils and Emotional Intuitive held two Essential Oil and Intuition clinics in Palm Beach County, FL, May 1 and 2, 2011. This was the first time that internationally known Intuitives Barbara Rasor, HHP and Nan Martin, LSH/CRP worked together to show riders and horse owners how to improve the performance and wellbeing of their horse using intuition and therapeutic essential oils.
During the clinics, an overview of the different oil grades, uses, applications and contraindications of essential oils was presented. Participants were educated on seven top essential oils to use including peppermint, lavender and frankincense; and their respective physical and emotional properties and uses for horses, riders and pets. Nan emphasized, “essential oils are alternative and complementary home remedies for horses that are easy to use and effective.” They can be used to enhance many other modalities. These include: massage, acupressure and emotional clearing work which is one of Nan’s specialties.
The intuition portion of the clinics involved learning how to develop intuition and how to use it to select oils that are appropriate for certain conditions or situations. In each clinic, participants learned several intuitive techniques and had the opportunity to apply them to their horse or pet. Barbara highlighted that “everyone has intuitive abilities that can be easily tapped into – the challenge can be learning how to do it correctly and then trusting that you are receiving the correct information!”
Two demonstrations took place where Nan and Barbara worked with horses to showcase their work and involve the clinic participants. The first horse initially appeared spooky and aloof and had difficulties connecting to his trainer. After intuiting and applying various oils, the horse not only was calmer but more receptive to the trainer. The second horse, a Lusitano stallion, had challenges with respiratory complaints and emotionally adapting to his new home in the United States. Again after intuiting and applying various oils, the horse not only became softer in his movements but was able to breath more freely which will ultimately help him in his performance and training.
At the close of each clinic, a small reception was held featuring complimentary wine and hors d’oeuvres. This provided a great way for individuals to mingle and ask questions of Nan and Barbara following the events.
The first clinic focusing on horses and their riders was at Martin Downs Equestrian Center, Palm City, Florida and the People and Pets Clinic was held at Homewood Suites in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida. Presenting sponsor for the clinics was Laura Hanson Virginia of Merrill Lynch Financial Services of Palm Beach. Contributing sponsors were Wild Eyes Photography who provided incredible photos for the events; and Somerset SportArt Equestrian Marketing who provided marketing and event planning support.
Each participant found the classes to be very informative and educational; and look forward to learning more in clinics that will be offered in the future.
