Essential Oils 101...And Then Some! (A Make and Take Class)


with J Wilhelm

Calendar Mar 14, 2019 at 6 pm, runs for 1 week

Maybe you've been hearing about essential oils and are curious, or maybe you just like finding ways to make gifts for others and things to use at home for yourself.  Whether it's either, both, or neither but you like to have fun, we'll have a casual get-together that will be fun and informative, too!  Learn about essential oils, how they're made (don't worry, we won't get too science-y!), and all the ways they can be used, from making our houses smell good to replacing health and beauty products to supporting our physical and emotional health (because, as we know, the emotions -- stress is a great example -- can affect our physical health, too!).  We'll even cover the use of essential oils with and around our pets because they're part of the family, too!  And you'll get to make a couple goodies, too, and get the recipes to make more!  These are easy to make and are great to use yourself and to give as gifts for teachers, friends, family , and more.  We'll be making sugar scrubs (for that winter dry skin) and room/linen sprays.  And, as an extra bonus, some all-natural cleaner for around the house and some additional easy-peasy but good recipes!

Green Dot Bystander Intervention Training


with Elias, Lane Moore-Leamon

Calendar Mar 6, 2019 at 6 pm, runs for 4 weeks

Have you ever seen or heard someone harass, bully, or threaten another person, and wished you knew what to say or do?  Most of us have.  We are all much more likely to be a bystander than a participant or victim of hateful and hurtful words and behavior.  Green Dot teaches safe and proven-effective Bystander Intervention techniques that every member of a community can use, both proactively to change our culture for the better, and reactively to reduce harm.  None of us can do everything, but each of us can do our part to make Lewiston-Auburn a safer and more welcoming community.
