A while ago, I introduced a new Sedona Aromatherapie home study course : The Caddy Profiles by Rosemary Caddy. This is an advanced aromatic chemistry course that will take your aromatic blending skills to the next level. Do you want to understand aromatic chemistry in a more simple, and colorful, way – with the use of charts instead of text? Well, this might be the course for you! Here is a sneak peek from the actual course program to help you to decide.
Sample Lesson for The Caddy Profiles Aromatic Chemistry Course
Here are some interesting extracts from the course:
The whole premise of this course is based around a Caddy Profile which is represented by a circle divided into sections similar to a pie chart:
In the course:
“One drop of an essential oil is represented by a circle.
The circle is divided into 100 parts.
The parts are always counted from the top (at 12 o’clock) and go round in a clock-wise direction. In the circle shown, you would start at the number 0.
Each division shown in the circle represents 5 parts. Therefore, you count in multiples of five; from 0 to 25 is 5 x 5 parts = 25 parts.”
As you progress throughout this course you will develop your simple circle profile and use it to compare and contrast more complex data presented by individual essential oils, chemical families, and how to use it to develop a blend of essential oils for a specific condition.
By the end of the course you will know how to draw your Caddy profile, complete complex tables with aromatic chemistry data, and prepare your aromatherapy blend for someone who either has a simple cold or a chronic condition such as arthritis.
Comparing GC-MS Analyses Reports with The Caddy Profiles
Here’s another reason why you should take this course, if you are serious about comparing those reports and readings you get for essential oils:
“If you get a sample of an essential oil analyzed, the laboratory reports the percentages of the major chemical constituents that it identifies in the sample. You can construct a Caddy Profile with the information from that single sample.
Each time that an essential oil is distilled from the plant material, the percentage of its chemical constituents will vary. There are many variables that affect the chemical makeup of an essential oil; the soil, the climate, the harvesting conditions, the distillation conditions, the storage conditions, and so on. Thus, each batch of essential oil tested will have a slightly different Caddy Profile.
A Caddy Classic Profile is constructed from using the results of hundreds of batches of an essential oil, together with historical research data on the chemical composition of the essential oil to produce an average result for the percentage of the main chemical constituents that you would expect to be reported in an analysis of the essential oil. Thus, a Caddy Classic Profile presents an expected pattern of chemical families to be generally found in the essential oil. In other words, it is the average pattern for that essential oil.”
