Peppermint - Mentha piperita

This perennial herb grows about three feet high, has slightly hairy serrated leaves with purplish spiked flowers. Mint has been cultivated since ancient times by the Romans, Greeks, Egyptians, Chinese and Japanese. Today it is cultivated worldwide. The essential oil is produced in France, England, the United States, Russia, Bulgaria, Italy, Hungary, Morocco and China.

Peppermint is a very versatile plant. It helps with the digestive system, circulation, muscular pain, joint pain, respiratory system and mental fatigue; just to name a few. You can use the herb in teas or cooking. The essential oil has many applications, such as adding a few drops to massage oil or in a diffuser. When I walk by my mint plants, I love to gently touch them in order to get their refreshing aroma on my finger tips.

There are many species of Mint, including Spearmint, Apple Mint and Pennyroyal.

You can purchase essential oils through Frogworks. (essential oils are not on our web site - call or email)

An Aromatherapy Consultation can help with feelings of stress, mild depression, anxiety, exhaustion, insomnia, muscular pain, digestive problems, PMS, and skin problems.

Individual consultations by FrogWorks result in a custom blend of essential oils designed specifically for you or your animal, whether the need is cosmetic or health-related. As our specialty, this is by far the most precise and effective method to determine which oils you or your animal requires in order to create a mixture tailored to those particular needs. Consultations incorporate the methods of Applied Kinesiology (to find the imbalances of the energy flow to specific organs of the body) and Traditional Chinese Medicine (to determine what these imbalances might signify). The beauty of this hands-on process is that it eliminates any guesswork, which might result in unnecessary expenses, and instead provides a fine-tuned, customized treatment.

The cost of a Consultation is $60 plus the cost of the oils.

Nutrition Class: FOOD - Nourishing You!
October 7th, Saturday 10:30 - 1 pm

The concept of food has changed from a source of nourishment to: body image obsessions, a source of comfort, guilt or self abuse, possibly a health issue, or the ongoing search for "which diet is best for me?". What and how much to eat seems to get progressively more challenging, even more so for our youth. Is there really such a thing as a "perfect" or "right" diet?

In this class, we're going to take a different approach to exploring nutrition and ways of nourishing yourself. We'll discuss how your lifestyle, education, and relationship to food affect your eating habits and explore how to begin a new relationship with nourishing you.

Cost: $20.00 (nutritious meal included)
with Allison Slade (Certified Nutrition Therapist who works with individuals and families offering nutrition consulting and wellness coaching and volunteers at the state level with legislation helping to change what children are being fed in schools and at the district level by assisting in the development of a wellness program for students, teachers, and administration.)
