David Crow, L.Ac.
Recorded May–June 2016
Discover the practical, time-tested healing powers of Ayurvedic methods for using essential oils to restore your energy, increase your vitality, foster optimal wellness and advance your spiritual growth.
Are you ready to discover how to use essential oils to enhance your immune system, cultivate more life force, dispel inflammation and relax your mood?
Then you’ll want to know more about Ayurveda, an ancient healing science from India that gives us a sophisticated understanding of essential oils and their effects on our physical and subtle bodies.
Ayurvedic practitioners have long married insights into the energetic levels of our being with practical wisdom on how our body functions, as well as the effect our senses have on our body.
Ayurveda could be said to be a system of “eco-physiology,” meaning that it describes the functioning of the body in terms of ecological and environmental phenomena. These include cosmological energies such as agni (solar heat and metabolic fire), soma (cooling and moistening lunar influences), the pancha mahabhutas (five elements of earth, water, fire, air and space), prana (life force) and the gunas (sensory qualities and mental states).
Using these systems and concepts, we can classify the wide range of essential oils into broad categories of therapeutic functions, which allows us to easily learn and understand the primary nature of these oils so that we can apply them safely and effectively.
What is the Right Oil for Your Energetic Type?
Central to Ayurvedic practice is a recognition that true health requires balancing our constitutional type, or “dosha,” with the right combination of diet, activities and specific remedies.
The primary doshas are vata, pitta and kapha, and there are 15 sub-doshas underneath those three. Each dosha requires a different approach to balance or support it in order to create the foundation for radiant health.
Addressing and correcting imbalances in your system results in enhanced vitality, a resilient immune system and calmer emotions.
Put simply, you feel better!
That’s because when you get out of energetic balance, your system becomes dis-harmonious and prone to disease and dysfunction. Something just feels “off.” You might become moody, sluggish, depressed or anxious, depending on your dosha type.
For example, vata types are prone to feeling ungrounded and cold, with flighty temperaments, unless they are properly balanced. Pitta types can get too fiery and emotionally unstable, whereas kapha types are prone to sluggishness.
Left untreated, imbalances in our energy system can sabotage our health and undermine our optimal performance.
That’s where essential oils come in. They offer one of the easiest ways to put us on the path to good health.
The aromatic substances in essential oils can have a profound effect on our body, emotions and mind, helping to trigger the brain and immune system to respond in specific ways. There is now solid research that shows that aromatic compounds trigger our neurochemistry in specific ways, which then affects how our whole body relates to stressors.
Ayurveda illuminates how these effects are related to different constitutional types. The same oil might be aggravating to a pitta person or soothing to a kapha person.
This level of specificity enables us to customize our approach to healing and well-being. We can begin to diagnose HOW we are out of balance and apply specific, non-invasive essential oil remedies that revitalize us and restore our balance and natural health.
A Breakthrough in Healing on the Subtle Levels
In the exciting brand-new online program, Ayurvedic Aromatherapy, you have the chance to learn from David Crow, one of the most respected botanical medicine pioneers in the world, who will teach you how to approach healing safely and effectively with essential oils using Ayurvedic principles.
Note that while we will study ancient remedies specifically from the East, we’ll also explore how to apply an Ayurvedic understanding to essential oils that were not even known in ancient India.
You’ll discover what’s important for each energetic type as well as how to receive the most benefit from specific remedies using oils such as rose, vetiver, sandalwood, agarwood, jatamansi, lentisque, dwarf juniper and helichrysum.
You’ll understand how to improve your concentration and memory, ground and calm yourself, heal your circulatory system, treat skin conditions, access higher consciousness and much more. You’ll also discover how to reduce stress and promote deep and restorative sleep.
On a practical level, you’ll explore the safe topical and diffuser applications of oils as well as how to use aromatic baths, medicated oils, steam treatments and other therapies inspired by Ayurvedic methods.
We’ll also go beyond formulas to a much deeper, richer and more multi-faceted understanding of medicinal botanicals. In the modern West, we’ve been raised to think of plants as objects that exist chiefly for our pleasure and consumption. We use them to nourish our bodies and beautify our gardens and homes.
The truth is that plants, and the essential oils we derive from them, are so much more than that. They can help us evolve on many levels. They can detoxify our bodies, purify our minds, rebalance our emotions and reboot our energy. They can help us heal disease and expand our vision. Plants can also reveal to us an entirely different relationship with the natural world.
As you learn to open to the deeper blessings of plants through the wise use of essential oils, you can receive more of their healing and medicinal powers and put yourself on a path to higher consciousness.
Ancient seers, mystics and healers discovered many hidden aspects of the plant kingdom and passed down that knowledge in the Ayurvedic lineage. Now you can harvest the best of this healing tradition to create a new, expansive and natural approach to healing for your health and wholeness in David’s new 7-module program.
A New Paradigm of Relating to Essential Oils
Rather than sifting through and distilling an endless array of information on your own, you can take a 7-module virtual journey with a master guide who has dedicated his life to exploring, classifying and documenting the practical, medical, psychological and spiritual powers of essential oils and how to safely use them in an Ayurvedic way.

In every class, you’ll gain important information about essential oils that can enhance your physical and emotional wellbeing.

Session 1: Essential Oils & Aromatic Plants in Ayurveda (Recorded May 11)
Ayurveda is a richly fragrant medical system. Every aspect of treatment and therapy is infused with aromas, which are emanating mostly from the essential oil content of the herbal ingredients being used. It is these aromas (and flavors) that provide many of the therapeutic benefits one enjoys when using Ayurveda’s vast number of diverse preparations.

Essential oils can be classified according to Ayurveda’s system of five universal elements of earth, water, fire, air and space. By understanding the predominant element or mixture of elements within an oil, we are better able to apply the oil therapeutically to balance these elements within ourselves.
In this session, you’ll:

- Discover a wide range of carrier oils and aromatic waters for hydration and balancing of the water element

Session 3: Using Essential Oils According to the Gunas (Mental & Physical Qualities) (Recorded May 25)
Essential oils can be classified according to the 3 qualities of consciousness: sattvic (spiritual), rajasic (aggressive) and tamasic (dullness). They can also be classified according to Ayurveda’s system 10 opposite pairs of qualities, such as heating/cooling, drying/moistening and so on. Classifying oils according to their physical qualities and their effects on consciousness helps us understand and apply their therapeutic benefits.

- Discover how to use flower oils such as lavender and chamomile to calm rajasic (aggressive) emotions
- Identify simple ways of using energizing oils such as laurel to overcome tamasic consciousness (mental dullness)
- Understand how to classify and use essential oils according to their primary qualities of heating/cooling, stabilizing/activating, moistening/drying and other polarities
Session 4: Using Essential Oils According to the Doshas & Sub-doshas
(Biological Systems) (Recorded June 1)
One of the most important ways to classify essential oils is according to the doshas, or constitutional body types. For vata conditions, oils that are warming, heavy, stabilizing, calming and strengthening should be used to help lubricate dryness and relax an overstimulated but fatigued nervous system. For Pitta conditions, oils that are cooling, calming and relaxing can be used for counteracting inflammation as well as overheated and aggressive mental and emotional states. For Kapha conditions, oils that are light, warm, stimulating, energizing, decongestant and expectorant are used to counteract slow metabolism, lethargy and congestion of fluid and phlegm.
In this session, you’ll:
- Understand how the gunas (qualities) and elements of essential oils are related to individual body types
- Discover the most important essential oils for calming Vata, cooling Pitta and decongesting Kapha
- Explore the Ayurvedic system of the 15 sub-doshas (five Vatas, five Pittas, five Kaphas), and how essential oils can be correlated to each
- Find out how common essential oils can be used for the sub-doshas, such as how rosemary can strengthen the Prana Vata of the brain to enhance concentration and memory
Session 5: Using Essential Oils According to the Dhatus (Tissue Levels) (Recorded June 8)
Essential oils and aromatic plants can be applied in various ways to benefit each of the tissue levels described by Ayurveda. These treatments include aromatic preparations for the digestive juices, blood, muscles, fat, bones, marrow and reproductive system.

- Discover the wound-healing powers of essential oils such as frankincense
Session 6: Using Essential Oils for Increasing Prana & Ojas (Life Force & Nutrient Essence) (Recorded June 15)
Essential oils are secondary metabolic compounds produced by plants for a variety of biological purposes, primarily immunological and reproductive. Because of the anatomical and physiological parallels between humans and plants, these compounds can be used therapeutically to enhance our own immunological resistance and rejuvenate the nutrient essence that supports both consciousness and sexual vitality.
In this session, you’ll:
- Understand how essential oils are the pranic immune power of aromatic plants, and how they benefit human health
- Discover how exotic floral oils such as jasmine and rose are the ojas of plants, and how they can support and strengthen our ojas (nutrient essence)

Ama (Toxins) (Recorded June 22)

More Praise for David Crow...
I wish I was a good writer in order to fully express how since taking the course I seem to have developed a deep love and a relationship with the plants around me. About 5 years ago I had the concrete in my front yard removed. I could not understand why I could not accept planter boxes rather than going through all the trouble anxiety and criticism from my neighbors. Now when I come home I am greeted by a lush array of plants. I now speak to them and thank them for the beautiful healing energy they provide. I am also slowly removing the concrete from the backyard but with great enthusiasm — not with the anxiety I experienced prior.
– Jacqueline, Brooklyn, NY
Many insights from a good teacher. I especially appreciated the experiential part, how David Crow led us to many places which we can now continue to explore on our own. I came away with a profound sense of the interconnectedness and deep wisdom of Nature, and Life moving through all of it and us.
– Diana Mongeau, Errington, BC, Canada
What I liked most of this course is that it made me aware of the importance of the plants in our daily life. How we can communicate with them and obtain answers. It sound a little funny, but, yes, it’s all in paying attention. I liked very much the information of the healing oils and want to learn more about this theme. All remedies to our emotional, physical and mental health lies in medicinal plants, eating, smelling, rubbing and so forth. I take care by not taking pharmaceuticals and now I am more convinced of being very careful in doing so. Just in case of an emergency. I really look forward to learn more and be able to pass the information on. Thank you very much Amy and staff, and of course to David Crow.
– Maria Elisa Calero, Colombia, South America
I really found this enriching, deep, profound and affecting. Loved the depth of knowledge and insight and level of integrity that came across...! Many thanks.
– Annie Le Marquand, Falmouth, Cornwall, United Kingdom
In this course David Crow shares a unique blend of knowledge and perspectives from ancient and modern cultures. I appreciated the practical approach to spirituality and the participatory focus to learning. I look forward to reflecting and further absorbing insights from the course over time.
– Sarah Weber, Squamish, British Columbia, Canada
The information in this course was extraordinary, and has so many implications for the way we live our lives and for the preservation of our beloved Earth. I feel this could be transformative if truly taken to heart.
– Valerie, Devon, England
This course has profoundly deepened my meditation practice. Fabulous insights and wonderful reverence for the plant world. Thank you so much for this learning experience.
– Silvia Rudzki, Wellington, New Zealand
I have always been more of an animal person than a plant person, although I love being out in nature, around trees, etc. In retrospect, I think I unconsciously objectified plants, flowers, etc... even herbs, which I have picked were more impersonal, if that makes sense. This course has heightened my awareness of plant life of all kinds as beings and presence. My relationship and awareness, even with my own garden has changed significantly in a way that is intensely spiritual and (though the words aren’t quite right) awe-inspiring. This has been one of the most profound and consciousness-expanding courses I have ever taken. Thank you, David Crow.
– Beverly Kune, Santa Fe, NM
I wasn’t sure if anyone in my family would be as engaged as I was. My 84 year-old mom was blown away and listened to four lectures. My sister read through the transcripts. My friends listened to some of the lectures. It was highly interesting and unique material for all of us. I hope to continue with another class, and/or start some personal study of the many topics presented.
– Connie, Chapel Hill, NC
At the risk of sounding certifiably crazy... many years ago I had a very lucid dream in which a "higher being" clothed in a hooded robe was imparting the "secrets of the universe" to me. I knew what I was being told was of supreme importance, and when I awoke the only part I remembered was being told that nature "leans into us (humanity), which allows for our being." I understood this on an intuitive level, but not until hearing David lecture did I understand what this means biologically, psychologically and spiritually. I am very, very pleased with the content and depth of this course and consider the imparted information priceless.
– Bonnie Davis, Dallas, TX
I’ve always had a connection with the moon, and I could never explain why. I’ve always had a connection with plants, and people thought I was unique. Learning about the connection of the moon and sun with the plants, then incorporating the meditation, WOW!!! My existence isn’t isolated to the physicality of my body here on earth, but my presence has expanded through the plants, animals, and others, and my presence is now of an energy that goes beyond the physical and is now the energy of color, smell, health, and, and, and... this is more of who and what I am. I want to know more, so I can share more. Thank you David!
