MAYVILLE — A three-class course in natural alternatives will be offered starting June 8.

The class will focus mainly on the science of homeopathy and how it can help heal minor health issues. Other modalities will be discussed such as herbal products, nutrition, aromatherapy and essential oils. The dates for the course are Thursdays June 8, 15 and 29 from 6 to 8 p.m.; the course will be held in the UMW Room of the Bemus Point United Methodist Church.

Essential oils and aromatherapy can be used in a diffuser to mist the air, or in carrier oils to be used on the skin as a massage blend. Issues like arthritis and musculoskeletal problems can be helped with essential oils and homeopathy. The course will help students learn how to use remedies at home, safely. Homeopathy is a 200-year-old system of medicine, discovered by a physician in Germany that is FDA-approved.
