You will access emotions by using a specific combination of painting and aromatic tools. This class is led by an art therapist but is NOT therapy. The class provides a window to your soul and connects with your deeper emotions in a fun way.

Please bring journal/notebook, brushes and acrylic oils to the first class. You will be educated about appropriate essential oils and the instructor will provide an opportunity to purchase needed supplies in class.

IntuARTiv- Intuitive essential oil painting is, at its most basic, painting without an end in mind, enjoying the journey of painting. It is a tool to help you reconnect to your intuition, to drop from your head into your heart.


  • Strengthen your intuition
  • Release creative blocks
  • Understand and feel the power of essential oils
  • Learn to let go (of the past, of perfectionism, of problems, of needing to be in control)
  • Emotional release
  • Clarify where you are at and where you have been
  • Increase creativity
  • Connect to your soul
  • Make visible that which isn’t seen
  • Increase visual and manual skills
  • Shift left brain to right brain for a more global, intuitive approach

The class will create community with understanding and learning from each other. Painting in layers helps the brain let go of perfection and fear. It soon begins to see that whatever is painted will be painted over and unseen.

This is where the magic happens. We use a powerful painting technique with a unique combination of intuitive painting and dōTERRA® essential oils. This helps to access and release and work through emotions. Sharon is a licensed art therapist, ATR.
