Essential Oils

Our sense of smell is more powerful than we think it to be and has great influence over our thoughts, emotions, moods, behavior and memories. Sense of smell varies greatly from other senses that the human body possesses. Scents that we inhale are processed through a completely different pathway; before they reach the brain, they travel through other regions of the brain – notably areas controlling memory and emotions.Essential oil molecules stimulate the limbic system of the brain. . This makes them easy to inhale and allows you to exploit the olfactory power of plants for healing, including the removal of toxins, oxygenating cells, and the opening of emotionally stored memory.

Write Your Own Nengajo!
The Japanese may not send very many Christmas or birthday cards, but they do send a lot of special postcards (4”x 6”) called nengajo that are delivered on New Year's Day. 
In addition to inscribing standard phrases like Akemashite omedeto gozaimasu (Happy New Year) on these cards, people often jot down what they've been up to lately and their new year resolutions. They also decorate the cards with color markers, oil or acrylic paint, black ink, montages of colored paper, paper cutouts, or woodblock prints.  Popular graphic elements that are added can include New Year motifs such as kadomatsu (decorations made of pine branches), kites, plum flowers, and the sun rising against Mount Fuji on New Year's Day. Even more popular, though, are illustrations of the animal for the coming year under the Chinese zodiac, which moves in a 12-year cycle. 
Come and try out this popular tradition and create your own nengajo filled with seasonal greetings written in Japanese alongside your own picture of the zodiac animal for 2020, the rat/mouse! Participants under the age of 13 need a guardian present.
Registration closes on Saturday, November 30th.
