How Do I Use Essential Oils In West Virginia?
If you’re a beginner to essential oils, in West Virginia there are three primary ways essential oils enter the body: applied to the skin, inhaled, or ingested. When choosing the right method to use essential oils, always keep in mind the desired result you are wanting and then determine the best application for use.
Essential oils can enter the body by being applied to the skin. This method can vary from using a compress, gargling, bath or even massage. It requires several drops of essential oils to be used topically in some manner. It is important to note that most essential oils should not be applied directly to the skin without being diluted.
Inhalation methods vary from steam, spray, dry evaporation, or diffusion. While people inhale and diffuse essential oils for a variety of reasons, it has been shown that inhalation is most effective and best suited to treat a variety of respiratory complaints. Using an atomizing essential oil diffuser is the most highly recommended inhalation method.
Although, ingestion of essential oils has had much controversy in West Virginia, I suggest you do the proper research yourself and use safe practices. Cases of death, organ failure and hospitalization in the history of aromatherapy have been caused by ingesting essential oils. Therefore, ask the right people the right question. Is it safe?
West Virginia, On Thursday, June 30, 2016, Dr. Cubert Smith will present “African American Life: A Personal Perspective” in the Archives and History Library in the Culture Center in Charleston. The program, which is the second of the 2016 Block Speakers Series, will begin at 6:00 p.m. and is free and open to the public.
Dr. Cubert Smith grew up in St. Albans and is a graduate of Garnet High School. He received a bachelor’s degree from West Virginia State University, one master’s degree from Marshall University and another from the University of Guanajuato in Mexico, and a doctorate from Union Graduate College in Yellow Springs, Ohio. Smith also received additional post-doctoral credit from Harvard University in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
Smith taught in Kanawha County schools and at West Virginia State University. During Charleston Mayor Kemp Melton’s administration he served as director of Charleston-Korolev Sister City Program, a cultural exchange initiative with Korolev, Russia. Smith’s public sculptures are located around the Kanawha Valley, including at the South Charleston Mound, Charleston’s Haddad Riverfront Park, Yeager Airport, and West Virginia State University. Of special meaning to him are the bronze plaques he created for the doors at St. Paul Baptist Church in St. Albans.
A Cubert Smith sculpture was one of the works selected to represent the U.S. in the 2nd Black World Arts Festival held in Nigeria. In 1984, Governor John D. Rockefeller IV selected him as West Virginia’s nominee to attend the American Academy in Rome. He was again honored by Governor Rockefeller as an Outstanding West Virginian and was later recognized as an Ambassador for the Arts for the State of West Virginia by Secretary of State A. James Manchin. Smith currently lives in Charleston with his wife and daughter and is serving his third term on the Charleston city council.
Participants may park behind the Culture Center after 5:00 p.m. on June 30 and enter the building at the back loading dock area. There also is limited handicapped parking available in the bus turnaround.
West Virginia, West Virginia Listeni/ËwÉst vÉrËdÊÉªnjÉ/ is a state located in the Appalachian region of the Southern United States. It is bordered by Virginia to the southeast, Kentucky to the southwest, Ohio to the northwest, Pennsylvania to the north (and, slightly, east), and Maryland to the northeast. West Virginia is the 41st largest by area and the 38th most populous of the 50 United States. The capital and largest city is Charleston.
West Virginia became a state following the Wheeling Conventions of 1861, in which delegates from some Unionist counties of northwestern Virginia decided to break away from Virginia during the American Civil War, although they included many secessionist counties in the new state. West Virginia was admitted to the Union on June 20, 1863, and was a key Civil War border state. West Virginia was the only state to form by separating from a Confederate state, the first to separate from any state since Maine separated from Massachusetts, and was one of two states formed during the American Civil War (the other being Nevada, which separated from Utah Territory).
The Census Bureau and the Association of American Geographers classify West Virginia as part of the Southern United States. The northern panhandle extends adjacent to Pennsylvania and Ohio, with the West Virginia cities of Wheeling and Weirton just across the border from the Pittsburgh metropolitan area, while Bluefield is less than 70 miles (110 km) from North Carolina. Huntington in the southwest is close to the states of Ohio and Kentucky, while Martinsburg and Harpers Ferry in the Eastern Panhandle region are considered part of the Washington metropolitan area, in between the states of Maryland and Virginia. The unique position of West Virginia means that it is often included in several geographical regions, including the Mid-Atlantic, the Upland South, and the Southeastern United States. It is the only state that is entirely within the area served by the Appalachian Regional Commission; the area is commonly defined as "Appalachia".
The state is noted for its mountains and rolling hills, its historically significant logging and coal mining industries, and its political and labor history. It is one of the most densely karstic areas in the world, making it a choice area for recreational caving and scientific research.
