NJ +NY – No more fight, flight and freezing- Emotional Healing AWESOME RESULTS!


Just back from the North east of the United States and I am so thrilled to report that the students were truly transformed through the process of using essential oils, flower essences, breathing techniques, movement and story telling. The introduction to Emotional Healing one day workshop has now been taught 6 times and each time I see new ways people are feeling better.  I see them recovering easier and getting their energy back which helps them to  become more resilient to future stresses, traumas and daily conflicts.

Essential oils are truly the spark plug which ignited their ability to respond and become more resilient to traumas and shocks they have encountered before because essential oils work on the psychoneuroendocrinology  and psychoneuroimmunology.

Flower essences worked on their energy field (the mind system) that allowed their  energy field  to become larger and stronger which builds the resilience to negativity of others and situations along  with environmental challenges  that all  our energy fields encounter each day such as radiation, EMF’s, pesticides, insecticides, air pollution and water pollution.  The power of Flower essences are helpful to get rid of habits and patterns that the student no longer wanted to hold onto.

The breathing techniques really got the students relaxed and able to connect to their bodies and what is going  within themselves. They also connect  with each other through hand massage with our special SET blend!

Story Telling helped the students to see how they were stuck in their old stories and had been replaying them for too long. It made them realize there are always two sides or more to every story. Through this process of story telling they learn to let go of the past and re create a new story that helps them feel better and be in the present moment.

In the 2 day Total Immersion- we went deeper into Emotional challenges using what they learned from the 1 day introduction to Emotional healing and more in depth story telling along with movement that helped them to move through these deeper challenges.  The movement that they learned will help them confront and handle daily stresses in a responsible and healthy manner.


Watch how Bob Kraeger and Kirk Bashaw really get into the movement exercise in the New York 1 day Introduction to Emotional Healing. This is truly heartfelt fun!


Now watch how the Total Immersion group just automatically start healing their inner child! Watch Diane Maiorisi and Valerie Stone!

The lovely group of ladies in New Jersey who took responsibility for their mental and emotional health.

Learn How Valerie Stone and family have transformed their lives through the Emotional Healing Tools that she learned in Emotional Healing with Essential Oils and Flower Essences Workshop! Valerie is living proof that  by using these tools you can not only transform yourself but  others too.

Here is other participants are saying about how they are healing with this workshop.

” The Total Immersion Essential Emotional Healing Workshop Using Common Scents with Essential Oils + Flower Essences was so much more than I expected. I learned so much about myself through story telling about the emotional baggage that I was carrying around and how it was weighing me down. I suppressed these emotions deep down which did not allow me to move forward nor allow for healing. Lorrie Hargis, RA was an amazing mentor and taught and provided participants the tools we could use to implement in our daily lives to us identify our emotions, simple exercises to open our hearts and clear energy as well as creating a variety of blends with essential oils and flower essences to support us through emotional healing. I met so many beautiful people and the energy throughout the class was inspiring and rejuvenating.”

Elizabeth Martinez, RN. Oncology Nurse Navigator

I can’t say enough about all the participants and how they gave and received the love, kindness that was in their hearts to each other. I am so grateful that I will teaching another Total Immersion Emotional Healing Workshop in Las Vegas- Sept 2nd, 3rd and 4th!

Cinnamon Leaf Essential Oil- Is it Powerful?


Lots of people ask me what is one of the most powerful essential oils?  For me it is Cinnamon Leaf not Cinnamon Bark however I have decided to really go into depth about Cinnamon Leaf and Cinnamon Bark for the next 3 months. We will discuss their therapeutic  properties, how to use them and their contraindications through videos on my Youtube Channel called Learning Essential Oils with Lorrie .

Cinnamon Leaf Essential Oil- Cinnamomum verum J.Presl (Syn : Cinnamomum zeylanicum Blume)

Cinnamon Leaf in Madagascar

The aroma is  spicy, stimulating, warm, and sweet. It is middle note in perfumery. Cinnamon leaves are steam distilled. The color- pale yellow to brownish. Cinnamon leaf is high in a phenol called eugenol. Eugenol has also shown excellent antimicrobial activity in studies, being active against fungi and a wide range of gram-negative and gram-positive bacteria (Marchese A, Barbieri R, Coppo E, Orhan IE, Daglia M, Nabavi SF, Izadi M, Abdollahi M, Nabavi SM, Ajami M. 2017)

Eugenol molecular structure

Cinnamon leaf essential oil also has shown to be effective against Salmonella Newport on organic leafy greens. (Todd J, Friedman M, Patel J, Jaroni D, Ravishankar S. 2013)

In my  five videos, you will learn how to effectively and safely use Cinnamon leaf essential oil  in formulations for colds, flus, coughs, as a protective air spray and for the chills! In these videos, you will see what essential oils that I have combined with Cinnamon leaf.  Here are the essential oils that combine well with Cinnamon Leaf (Hargis L. 2015)

Clove*, Orange, Lemon, Bergamot, Nutmeg*, Coriander, Cardamom, Frankincense, Eucalyptus, Geranium, Ginger, Lemongrass, Peppermint, Rosemary, Niaouli, Ravintsara, Tea Tree, Black Pepper, Sandalwood, Jasmine, Rose*, Myrrh, Lavender, Lime, Pine, Mandarin Red or Green, Oregano, Thyme thymol, Thyme linalol, Savory, Spearmint, Spikenard, Wintergreen, Yarrow and Ylang Ylang

Hargis L, 2015 Common Scents, A Practical Guide to Aromatherapy  French Kitchen Table Publishing

*IFRA- Rose and Clove contain methyleugenol which is considered a skin Irritant when combining Cinnamon leaf with them  this could cause  formulations to exceed the IFRA restriction limits to be considered safe. Nutmeg contains safrole which can only be used in very small amounts and Cinnamon leaf contains small amounts blending them together can cause restrictions in formulations according to the IFRA Standards.

Enjoy all the wonderful attributes of Cinnamon Leaf Essential Oil.

Fire and Smoke Exacerbate and Cause Breathing Problems!! Can Essential Oils Help?

I have been staying in California this summer visiting family and friends! I love my home state however this year the fires and smoke have kept the Golden State under siege with damaged lands, homes and health!

My students in my aromatherapy certification program have clients who cannot get out of their homes due to existing breathing problems and others who don’t normally have breathing problems are starting to suffer because they have get out to do their daily work . The population most at risk are children, older adults, and those with asthma, COPD and bronchitis or chronic heart disease and diabetes. You can see the ash on homes, cars and anything sitting outside. So what is this doing to our bronchioles and lungs?

Here is what the lung association says, “One of the many pollutants found in wildfire smoke is particle pollution, which is a mix of very tiny solid and liquid particles suspended in air. How tiny? Many of the particles in wildfire smoke are no larger than one third the diameter of your hair. These particles are so small that they enter and lodge deep in the lungs.

Particle pollution triggers asthma attacks, heart attacks and strokes—and can kill. Studies of children in California found that children who breathed the smoky air during wildfires had more coughing, wheezing, bronchitis, colds, and were more likely to have to go to the doctor or to the hospital for respiratory causes, especially from asthma.

Another threat from forest fire smoke is carbon monoxide(CO)—a colorless, odorless gas most common during the smoldering stages of a fire and in close proximity to the fire. Inhaling CO reduces oxygen delivery to the body’s organs and tissues and can lead to headaches, nausea, dizziness and, in high concentrations, premature death.Wildfires spread many other harmful emissions, including nitrogen oxides and many hazardous air pollutants.”1

What can we do with Essential Oils to help us feel better when going through this disaster?

I decided to do a video to Learn How to Use Essential Oils to Help with “Breathing Problems!”

4 drops Ravintsara essential oil

6 drops Rosemary 1.8 cineole essential oil

4 drops Peppermint essential oil

4 drops Geranium essential oil

6 drops Lemon essential oil

1oz. carrier oil such as Sunflower, Almond or Apricot

In an amber bottle, place essential oils and carrier oil. Roll between your hands thoroughly. Apply to sinus areas, chest and upper back and corresponding reflex points on your hands and feet.

Contraindications: Do not use in pregnancy and children under 2 years of age or if suffering from epilepsy.

Please go to the lung organization below to follow precautions to take when in disaster such as fire.

“Good morning, I’m sharing a couple of things today…SELF-SABOTAGE has been a running theme…

8 months ago @ the emotional healing class with Lorrie Hargis RA, I noticed myself self sabotaging pretty much all weekend. I’m thankful for being “present” in that class since it’s been a huge part of my fantastic journey.I got past the urge to sabotage myself when it was time for the “check-in” webinar we had recently with Lorrie. The self-talk was real. So I sat down with all items needed and “checked-in”It felt literally like I “choked” on my breath twice during the breathing exercise. A lot was revealed to me during that most wonderful, necessary, caring, safe and nurturing space with my EO tribe.I am well on my way, enjoying the journey immensely and proud of myself for honoring myself and giving myself the gift of tapping into all that is offered here and the harmonious exchange between us. Namaste🙏🏽.”
