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!
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.
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.
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'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!
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.
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 180 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' 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!
Aromahead Institute’s online teacher training makes it easy for you to teach 1-hour, 2-hour, 3-hour, 1-day and 2-day classes.

The Teacher Training Program also includes 10 blending videos, 21 dynamic educational webinars, and lessons on topics like “Active and Receptive Learning,” “How to Spread the Word About Your Class” and “Supporting Yourself as a Teacher.” This program makes the process of preparing for, teaching, and filling your classes simple and FUN.

There are no prerequisites for the Teacher Training Program, although you do need to have a solid Aromatherapy education before you teach aromatherapy. Being a Certified Aromatherapist will definitely help, however, no formal Aromatherapy Certification is required to enroll in the Teacher Training Program. We want this program to be accessible to anyone who is teaching aromatherapy or wants to teach.
No. 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.
It depends! Most students complete this course within a few months, and then continue to refer back to it over the years. 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 – as well as any subsequent updates to the course content – even after you’ve completed the program.
There are no specific supplies needed for this online class. However, you will eventually need supplies for teaching your own live classes. These should be obtained separately, and are not required for enrollment or completing the program.
When you enroll in Aromahead Institute's Teacher Training Program, you are eligible for Aromatics International’s exclusive teacher discount. This gives you up to 50% discount off most 5 ml, 15 ml, and 30 ml Essential Oils and up to 30% off carriers and accessories! Plus, there is no minimum order! This will greatly reduce the cost of the oils you use for teaching. Contact Aromatics International at email@example.com for more details.
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, and have been in the profession for years. You can email us anytime, and your emails will always be answered right away.
Most teachers simply call themselves an Aromatherapy Teacher or Aromatherapy Educator. There is no “official” teacher certification title through the Aromatherapy organizations. The Teacher Training Program does not train you to be an Aromahead Institute instructor. You are being trained to teach under your own name or the name of your business or school.
This class is specifically focused on training you to be a teacher – so it’s not an Aromatherapy Certification course. If you would like to become a Certified Aromatherapist, we offer a wonderful 235-hour program at Aromahead Institute, the Aromatherapy Certification Program.
Completing the Teacher Training Program does not automatically include approval of your school or classes by the Aromatherapy organizations. You’ll still have to go through the organizations’ individual approval processes. You’re welcome to increase your class hours at Aromahead Institute to meet their required hours, apply to each organization, and use the content from the TTP in that process. Please contact the organization you’re interested in for their specific requirements (AIA, NAHA, IFPA, AADP, or other).
Yes! Thousands of students from more than 170 countries have studied with Aromahead Institute, and we’d love to welcome you to our online community.
