As with learning something new, there is a short period of uncertainty and unsureness about your abilities. Fear may set in. Anxiety kicks in. 

Stop!  Don’t fret.

Knowing this going into the program allows you to create the space and time to get yourself acclimated to learn what you need to do, when and how to do it. Then, you will get into a groove and thrive in not only learning but using essential oils safely & effectively.

Our online Aromaversity has a convenient and user-friendly system. When you log into your account, your courses will pop up. Click on the one you are taking, and we walk you through each step of the way. Oh, and it is sooooo much fun!  


Student Tips

Once you are enrolled as a student, you need to treat your online education as if you had to show up in an actual classroom.  Establish a set schedule where you can dedicate a time frame to learning and completing your course assignments.  You will get out of it, what you put in. And your efforts will reflect in your blending. Set a reminder on your smartphone or in Outlook. Whatever works best for you, so school time becomes a habit.

Create a space where you can focus without distractions. Turn off the ringer on your phone and sit in a quiet area with internet connection so you can immerse yourself into each lesson. The lessons do allow for you to start and stop as you need or pause to make notes.

Smell your essential oils as you are learning about them. There is science behind memory association and learning. If you attach something to the information you are learning and use or smell that “something” when you are retrieving that information, memory will be more enhanced. For example, smell lavender, Lavandula angustifolia, while you are learning about that particular oil. This will help you build a relationship with that oil, as well as enhance your intuition.  This is skill that will come in handy as you develop formulations.

Ask questions when you need a concept or idea explained in greater detail. Or when you are working on your course assignments, case studies and research paper.

Check out the Student Resources. We will add new content and resources from time to time.  Enjoy the complementary e-books, presentations and tools.

Be committed. Be dedicated. Be passionate. Be you.

Do I have to take the Level 2 & 3 courses in a particular order?

After the Level 1 Courses – Introduction to Holistic Aromatherapy & Anatomy & Physiology II, you can begin your Level 2 studies.

Level 2 has 5 more specialized classes. I do recommend completing all Level 2 courses in order – Advanced Holistic Aromatherapy & Anatomy & Physiology II, Personal Care Holistic Aromatherapy, Advanced Aromatherapy Blending techniques, then Clinical Aromatherapy for Gastrointestinal Health.

Continue on in your Level 3 studies with 4 more classes – Aromatherapy for the Integumentary System (clinical skin care), Aromatherapy for Mind-Body Health (emotional health), Advanced Pathophysiology & Botanical (herb) Integration I & II.
