Course Description

Have you always wanted to learn the secrets of how to blend ingredients and make your own bath and massage oils, or hand and face lotions, or room refreshers and potpourri? Then this is the class for you!
 
This is a self-paced beginner's course demystifying aromatherapy and showing you many ways to add fragrance to your life. You'll gain enough knowledge to start trying some simple blends and the courage to experiment with creating your own unique blends. You'll learn ways to add fragrance to your life, you'll learn a little about the plants and the history; you'll learn what exactly are these things called essential oils and carrier oils; you'll learn how to dilute and blend; you'll learn where to buy the oils and supplies; and you'll learn the correct way to measure and blend. Plus, we'll go into safety and storage issues and you'll be given many recipes for beginning concoctions.
 
If you're interested in alternative medicine, cooking (sensory recipes), gardening, cosmetics, your home environment, starting down the road to becoming an aromatherapist, or adding to your salon or spa business, you'll find a treasure load of information in this course.
 

This self-paced, instructor-led course provides clear and simple steps to demystify the jargon and bring aromatherapy products and procedures into your everyday routine.

We will learn how the oils were discovered and developed, where to obtain essential oils, and how to blend and store oils. We will also cover how to use the oils in complexion and skin products, compresses, massage therapy, fragrancing a home and so much more. If you've always had a desire to create healthy, natural alternatives to all those chemically-laden, commercial beauty products, then please join us today!
