Hi! I'm Dr. Stacey Gaines, the instructor for this course.
Emotional and physical health are things I have always been really passionate about - so much so that they were reflected in my formal education where I specialized in the areas of exercise science and psychology while I completed my Ph.D. at Purdue University. I was introduced to essential oils in 2013 and gave them mild attention initially because my scientist brain questioned how something that wasn't backed by research was effective or safe. But when I started researching them more, I was astounded at the amount of legitimate research I was finding supporting the use of essential oils for therapeutic health benefits.
Now I help people find, and safely use, natural solutions for their health needs. Our healthcare system is frustrating, and it can be difficult to wade through the alternative options that are available to us. On top of that, navigating the world of essential oils can be a bit overwhelming. That's where I come in! I want to help you find solutions for YOUR family's health needs that work with YOUR budget. Whether you are a Mom who desperately wants to keep her family healthy, a corporate professional who experiences stress and difficulties sleeping, someone with a practice in a helping profession, or someone just wanting an overall high quality of life, I would love to teach you about how essential oils can help you to embrace wellness, one drop at a time!
