- Learn to calculate the amounts of ingredients and supplies you'll need for your class, and how to organize them so your class flows smoothly.
Once you have enrolled, you may begin your class right away. Students may study at their own pace. Most students finish in 2-3 months, and then continue to refer back to the program for years to come. You have lifetime access to all the program materials.

I'm so glad to have had my teacher training at Aromahead. Andrea provided an incredible beginning for me AND my students. The program provided so much more than a template for workshops— it gave me the tools to teach for a variety of learning types, delivered the skills to handle classroom challenges, and empowered me to create, plan, and deliver everything from a one-hour workshop to a weekend learning program.
Andrea is an experienced teacher, accomplished Aromatherapist, and cherished industry champion. Her relationships with (and learning from) students, distillers, community members, and aromatherapy leaders alike informed the materials and wisdom she shared with us in Teacher Training. Thanks to the insights she shared, the tools she provided, and the resources she gave me, I've been able to offer my students a wide variety of aromatherapy classes and workshops—and my students have raved about ALL of them!

Once I became a Certified Aromatherapist, I knew I wanted to share my knowledge with my friends, family, and the world! Taking the Aromahead Teacher Training provided me with the confidence and materials to present Aromatherapy to a group of people in a fun and exciting way.
Andrea and her team at Aromahead provide so much thorough information and instructions to create classes and give talks about Aromatherapy. I was able to use the material to host a 1-hour talk, 3-hour class, full day workshop, and a full weekend workshop. Once I completed the Teacher Training, I had all the skills and materials to create and teach custom classes for Yoga Instructors, Reiki Practitioners, Massage Therapists, and Hospice Workers. I would highly recommend this class to anyone who wants to offer their love of Aromatherapy to the masses in an easy-to-learn approach, that empowers people to use Aromatherapy in a safe and knowledgeable way!

When I signed up for Andrea Butje's Teacher Training Program, I was excited to learn how best to teach Aromatherapy to other excited budding Aromatherapists.
All the teaching outlines and pertinent information is provided in easy-to-offer steps and predetermined curriculum programs, including guidance on supplies needed for effective workshops.
It is Andrea's approach to teaching "how to teach" that really impressed me and gave me long-lasting takeaways from this course. I came to realize that having the knowledge to teach about Aromatherapy isn't enough if you're not a good communicator or sensitive to various ways of learning.
Andrea's Teacher Training Program teaches you how to cater to all types of learning styles, so you can tailor the information for your particular students to understand and remember. And if you are like me, you'll discover more about your own unique teaching style, and how better to learn and teach information! Thank you, Andrea, for opening my eyes and helping me continue to be an effective speaker, educator, and teacher.

If teaching classes about essential oils and Aromatherapy is your goal, taking The Teacher Training Program is a must. The most compelling reason is Andrea Butje, who is at the forefront of educating and creating interesting, intelligent, and stimulating online education in the Aromatherapy community.
The Teacher Training Program is an organized approach to teaching classes of short duration. It works! What permeates throughout all elements of the course is Andrea's obvious passion. She is dedicated to bringing the highest quality of knowledge and her thoughtfulness to every detail is amazing.
Andrea teaches from the heart, and her methods helped me clarify the goals of my classes and build my confidence. I completed my program and taught my first class (a dream come true), and I have repeated it again and again in my own style. This program is well worth the investment if you love the thought of teaching as a part of your work.

I have been teaching classes to health professionals for 25 years, and always enjoy taking courses to learn more and to become a better teacher. Hands down, Andrea Butje is the best teacher I have ever experienced. When I took the Aromahead Teacher Training Program, it catapulted me to a new level of confidence and teaching joy. Clearly, Andrea has had decades of teaching experience. There is nothing more satisfying than sharing my love of essential oils through education, and empowering others to utilize them safely and effectively. This highly organized Aromahead program has provided me with all the tools I need to have super successful aromatherapy workshops. All the inspiration, ready-to-print materials, and outlines alone were such a value for the price! In my first three months of teaching aromatherapy classes, I made back my investment in the course and a profit. I am so grateful to the whole Aromahead team!

I have been fortunate to have experienced Aromahead's Teacher Training course. I say "experience" because I am still benefiting greatly several years later. I cannot thank Andrea enough for giving me the foundation and confidence to teach others. Aromahead's Teacher Training class gave me the ability to teach others about the safe use of aromatherapy in a detailed and organized way. This is due to Andrea's well known attention to detail. Andrea is thorough and this class reflects that. I get compliments with every class that I teach about how well the class was put together. I truly owe it to Andrea for creating this wonderful course. This course gives you the ability to create many classes themed towards aromatherapy. This course is a necessity for those wanting to enter the world of teaching aromatherapy. Trying to develop it on your own without help can be tedious and challenging. It will also help in keeping the class captivated with your knowledge, because of Andrea's guidance on how to effectively teach people using various methods. I am so excited that Andrea is offering this class again!

I found the Teacher Training course taught by Aromahead to be comprehensive, and a sound investment. Andrea's vast aromatherapy knowledge and her years of teaching experience, down to the smallest details, were shared with an openness that exudes her warmth and wishes for my personal success.
Not only did I learn how to teach the material in this course, but I also discovered an awareness of my own personal learning style, and how I can utilize that to enrich the classroom experience for my students. This course simplified the process and forever changed my view of adult education. I am indebted to Andrea for all that she has shared through this course.

As a Certified Aromatherapist, RN, and certified educator/trainer of patients and nurses for 30 years, I wondered if Aromahead's Teacher Training would have anything to offer me. Andrea is a gifted teacher and I was quickly inspired to begin teaching aromatherapy classes to the public. The Teacher Training provided all of the details for offering several different types of essential oil classes. Plus, my knowledge of learners expanded as a result of this training! Aromahead's Teacher Training is ideal for someone who has never taught a class, as well as someone who is looking to further perfect their art.

My experience with Andrea Butje started in 1995, when I attended massage school. In 2006, I was fortunate to reconnect with Andrea at Aromahead Institute. I completed my Aromatherapy Certification Program and her Teacher Training in the same year! The Teacher Training has improved my personal life as well as my business! Andrea's style of teaching is something I try to emulate when I teach aromatherapy classes. You will be happy you made the decision to learn from Andrea! I still use all the information I have learned.
