Want to learn more about essential oils so you can use them safely for you and your family? Or maybe you want to formulate your own products? Perhaps you are a massage therapist who wants to safely incorporate essential oils for your clients.
Whatever the reason is, learning how to use essential oils safely is wise. Protecting yourself and your loved ones from adverse reactions has a value that can not be over-emphasized.
I (Lea Harris) enrolled in Aromahead Institute‘s online courses (starting with the Aromatherapy Certification Program) and had a wonderful experience with Andrea Butje as my teacher. Aromahead is approved by both AIA and NAHA (the two recognized aromatherapy organizations which have lists of approved schools). Andrea was awarded the Lifetime Achievement award in 2013, which is a special and honorable recognition given to only two others.
Benefits to enrolling with Aromahead Institute:
- online access from any location
- step-by-step videos help walk you through making products
- go at your own pace – slow or fast
- lifetime access
- access to private forum for questions
- payment options are available
- Andrea as your mentor!
Andrea is a wonderful teacher who makes you feel like she is right there with you as you take each class. Her positive and encouraging attitude gives you the confidence you need to excel in aromatherapy. Andrea's experience in teaching since 1999 comes through in her incredible and thorough knowledge and education in the course materials.
A great place to start is with the FREE Introductory course.
