I really liked how Andrea explained everything! First she showed the video, and then taught the recipes. Step by step progression. I also loved the data sheets! I made copies for my notebook, highlighted them, referenced other books for added tips, made notes, and smelled the essential oils while doing it! I now have a great notebook of the oils I have on hand and recipes I am hoping to try! Andrea, thanks so much for making these classes available online and sharing your wisdom.
Thanks to the Natural Living Class & webinar I had a great week. I have these bizarre allergy attacks and no amount of allergy medicine stops it. It starts off with an itchy nose, and then moves to frequent sneezing and finally watery eyes and runny nose combined with sneezes and itching nose! I had an attack this week and used the allergy inhaler and allergy shower drops, the earache blend, and cold inhaler blend and acute cold/flu bath salts from the Aromatherapy for Natural Living class. I was able to go the entire day without sneezing my head off or a runny nose and every time my nose itched I used the allergy inhaler. The second day I found that the cold inhaler worked better and by midday I didn't need either anymore. All of the nose issues lead to earaches and the earache blend worked within 60 seconds. I had to use it about 3 times, but each time the pain went away within a minute or so. Success! Thank you!!!!! Thank you!!
The Natural Living class was extremely easy to navigate. It was filled with wonderful information and fantastic recipes. Any classes that I have taken from Andrea have always been rewarding. The diffuser blends I use on a daily basis. For my office space I use a daytime focus blend of lemon, black spruce and eucalyptus. At home I use a relaxation blend of lavender, clary sage and ylang ylang. The Natural Living class was a lifesaver for my sinus issues. Thanks to Andrea I was able to create an inhaler with eucalyptus, inula and frankincense.
Aromahead Institute is a great Aromatherapy school. The blending is my favorite and it is due to how Andrea teaches it with an intelligent delivery and application examples. I got to study at my own pace, and in the comfort of where ever!! I study as I travel. I never would have had the confidence I have had I not studied at Aromahead. Andrea is 100% genuine and an exceptional human. I am blessed and proud to be her prodigy
Your video lessons and program content will be led by Andrea Butje, an internationally-recognized Aromatherapist who is changing the educational paradigm through her inspired approach to teaching + creating community online.
Andrea founded Aromahead Institute in 1998 to help people everywhere learn to use essential oils safely and effectively. Thousands of students from more than 170 countries have studied with Aromahead since that time – and many of our alumni have gone on to pursue successful careers and businesses in aromatherapy and the healing arts.
In 2013, Andrea won the Alliance of International Aromatherapists's Lifetime Achievement Award for her heartfelt work in educating and connecting people involved in all aspects of the aromatherapy industry – from renowned authors and distillers to those who are brand new to essential oils.
When she isn’t sharing her love of aromatherapy with others, you’ll usually find Andrea in her kitchen – cooking, baking and playing with new recipes!
Yes, the Aromatherapy for Natural Living content starts at the very beginning. We provide students with the encouragement, knowledge, experience and guidance you need to succeed.
That depends. If you are familiar with the therapeutic properties + safe use of essential oils, and you already know how to make a wide range of products with them, then this program may be too basic for you. (If that’s the case, we recommend you check out our fabulous Aromatherapy Certification Program here.) However, if you feel there may be some gaps in your knowledge – or you want to dive deeper into the topics covered by this course, then you’ll love this Aromatherapy for Natural Living!
This class is open to anyone seeking a comprehensive introduction to the practical application of essential oils in daily life. No previous experience in aromatherapy is necessary.
Yes! All the online classes at Aromahead Institute are self-paced. You can complete them on your own time, from anywhere in the world that you can log on to the internet.
Yes! Aromatherapy for Natural Living is approved for 36 Continuing Education Units (CEUs) in massage therapy by the NCBTMB – as well as by the Florida massage board.
It depends! Most students complete this course within a few weeks to a few months. However, the program is completely self-paced, which means you can slow it down or move through it more quickly, depending on your learning style and availability. You’ll have permanent unlimited access to your course materials and the Aromahead Institute online forum – as well as any subsequent updates to the course content – even after you’ve completed the program.
You will need some supplies in order to try the blending exercises and recipes in this program. You may use your own supplies or purchase them (supplies are not included in your tuition). Aromatics International has designed a beautiful kit with most of the Essential Oils, carrier oils, and bottles you’ll need. This kit is completely optional and sold separately through Aromatics International. Some students choose to begin the class, and then decide which recipes they want to make. This allows them to purchase their oils and supplies over time, as they make their way through the course (instead of buying the whole kit up front). Others buy the kit right from the start. The choice is yours!
Lots of it! The Aromahead Institute team is a dedicated community of educators that are ready to assist you and offer guidance when you need it. All of our teachers are Certified Aromatherapists, and have been in the profession for many years. You’ll have access to Aromahead’s online forum, where you can ask questions, participate in discussions and learn from other Aromatherapists. Plus, you can email us anytime, and your emails will always be answered right away.
