An amazing resource! This intro class is full of so much great information if you want to learn about using essential oils and how to incorporate them into your life. The class brought me invaluable knowledge that I immediately took to my practice as an acupuncturist and holistic health coach.  It was so well received that I then went on to take the Aromahead certification course and my life / career has completely changed.  My patients and clients love this addition to my protocol and everyone has benefited from it. I highly recommend this course!

I was introduced to essential oils a few years ago when I had a sore low back. I wanted some relief for the pain, but didn't want to take any drugs. A combination of bergamot and Roman chamomile in a little jojoba oil reduced the spasms and I couldn't get enough of the smell! Little did I know how that little aromatherapy blend would change my life. Aromahead Institute's Aromatherapy 101 was next! There is so much information there about how to use the oils, set up in a beautiful format, with short, interesting blocks of text and videos to teach you how to make products. An amazing deal!

If anyone is unsure about stepping in to the aromatherapy world, look no further. Aromahead's Aromatherapy 101 class is the best place to start! It is fun, interesting and helpful. I have now studied Aromatherapy with Aromahead for over 10 years!
