Teaching Aromatherapy is one of the sweetest joys in life!

by Andrea Butje on March 20, 2017

I will never forget the day I knew I wanted to teach Aromatherapy.

At the time, I was running a Massage Therapy school with Cindy Black. We used carrier oils at the school, but I had not focused much on essential oils.

Then one day, I noticed a beautiful catalogue for a new essential oil company, and decided to order some of their oils. When the oils arrived, I used a bit of my new Roman Chamomile in jojoba to massage some tension out of my belly—the tension calmed almost immediately!

I knew then that I had to study these amazing oils more in depth, and that I wanted to teach others about their beautiful effects. I started Aromahead Institute in 1998, and it has changed my life in wonderful ways!

If you have ever taught Aromatherapy, I’m sure you can relate . . .

  • Teaching others about essential oils and making natural products is one of the sweetest joys in life!
  • It’s so heartwarming to hear feedback from students who have improved their health, or the health of family or friends, with what you’ve taught them about essential oils.
  • It’s fun to be able to make your own work schedules as you plan classes!
  • You can even travel to new locations to reach more people.
  • The relationships you form while teaching Aromatherapy can last a lifetime—there are so many beautiful people involved in Aromatherapy, and all of them love essential oils as much as you!
  • Using essential oils in your career is deeply fulfilling.

Right now is a wonderful time for Aromatherapy teachers. Essential oils are becoming very popular, and people want to learn about them from reliable sources. The need for well-informed teachers who can share research-based information about the oils is very high. This means that in addition to having a big impact on students, Aromatherapy teachers can also have a big impact on the profession and the way it is growing!

So keep learning about essential oils and sharing what you know!

Hi Andrea,
I know is isn’t the 28th yet, but can you share how long the teacher training class will be for teaching aromatherapy? Either I missed it on the website or it isn’t listed yet. Just trying to plan ahead, since I’m still in the Aromatherapy Certification Program.

Would you mind emailing me about this and I can share some information with you.
