Hua means “flower,” and lu means “dew.” This term describes how drops of aromatic water are collected during the creation of an exquisite perfume, made by distilling neroli flowers (Citrus aurantium, chih shih) together with chen xiang (agarwood, Aquillaria agalocha). In this one of a kind course, you will learn through both audio recordings and written material the vast and profound wisdom of Traditional Chinese Medicine and how it applies to the use and study of aromatic plants and their essential oils.
Essential oils can be looked at through many lenses. They can be described in terms of chemistry, physiology, microbiology, clinical therapeutics, agriculture, ecophysiology, history, commerce, etc. They can also be looked at through the lens of spiritual applications and shamanism. They can be described both according to modern physiology and according to the language of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM).
This course utilizes two basic approaches. The first examines the role of aromatic plants and their preparations in TCM; the second describes the oils, their properties and their therapeutic uses according to TCM principles and terminology. In this way, we will see how traditional doctors utilized the healing powers of aromatic plants and will thereby gain insights into the modern uses of their essential oils. Furthermore, we will use the traditional concepts of TCM to explain the more modern development of essential oils being utilized for their own benefits.
