Learn about the benefits of essential oils and enjoy an essential oil take home – Wilderness Branch

April 27, 2023 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm


Join Valerie Wright and Barby Mouring for this educational and fun event.  Learn about the wellness benefits of essential oils, how to use them properly, and how to blend them.

Valerie Wright has been interested in nutrition and natural medicine since 1982, when her mother was healed from battling psoriasis for over 15 years. She learned that diet, nutrition and natural medicine play a huge role in healing the body of disease. 1987 she married Temple Wright, “T” and together they have 9 children and 11 grandchildren. In the 35 years of marriage, Valerie studied and practiced natural medicine on her family. There have been very few times in the 35 years where conventional pharmaceuticals were needed to treat the children, T or herself. In 2012, she learned the art of soaping and the value of essential oil use in skincare, infusing, and dietary regimen. Presently, she is working on her business, Ash&Oil, a handcrafted line of wholesome, all natural products which are created from pure essential and botanically infused oils.

Barby Mouring has been using and educating about essential oils since 2014 after recovery from a 23-year struggle with Lyme disease. As residents of Fauquier and Culpeper counties for 40 years, the Mourings have been on a family journey to promote wellness and prevent disease by naturally nourishing and building up the body’s defenses.  Barby has been an educator for 32 years and also works as an office administrator, but her passion is to help others learn to take control of their health and wellness.

The library is providing 2 rollerball perfume bottles for a custom blend essential oil fragrance to the first 20 registrants.

To register call (540) 661-5434 for the Wilderness Branch or just stop by the front desk.
