Learn to use essential oils in your massage practice
I had no idea what this "world of aromatherapy" would do for me. It's clearly the one thing that has been missing in my life, and I didn't know it until I started this Aromahead course. I have found my passion and it works perfect for my career in massage. I go to bed at night waiting for the sun come up so I can start reading again. If I wake up in the middle of the night I sign on to the course and study more! It's intriguing. It's really what has been missing in my massage sessions. I am looking forward to being educated and experienced as an Aromatherapist so I can share this beautiful art with the world!
