Using Essential Oils Safely: BASICS course

from Beginner to Confident User | By Lea Jacobson


COURSE ENROLLMENT IS CLOSING! Sign up before May 31st or wait until fall/winter 2018.

After allowing open enrollment for a few months, I have realized students are not getting the best experience as when  I go live weekly and walk everyone through - something I am unable to do when everyone enrolls at different times. So open enrollment is coming to a close! After May 31st, you will not be able to enroll until Lea puts another group together in fall/winter of 2018. At that point, I will be offering VIP option ONLY (includes private FB group coaching) - the regular $147 option will no longer be offered).

Become empowered as you journey from a beginner to a confident user of essential oils...

Understand how essential oils work for as little as ten minutes a day, and begin to use this information to make essential oils more effective - no matter which brand you choose to use.

Learn what essential oil to use, when to use it, how much, and how often...

The #1 complaint of essential oil users is that they don't know what essential oil they need for a given situation. This course will teach you which essential oils you need for what situation, and how to best use it. 

Prevent overwhelm as you grow in knowledge, taught by a certified clinical aromatherapist.

Save yourself lost hours searching aimlessly on google and ending up with conflicting answers - go right to the expert. Know how to weed through all of the information out there about essential oils, and decide what sources you can trust.

Create safe and effective essential oil blends for the whole family.

Lea  Jacobson, Certified Clinical Aromatherapist, has created family safe blends with much success. Learn how she does it, one module and lesson at a time, alongside other students all over the world

"I love how everything is broken up and easy to understand. I love the printouts! I do take notes on the printouts as well, just to clarify things for myself - but for the most part everything is included. I really like how the videos are not too long but just right. I replay them when needed and can fit them in throughout my day. The information is wonderful! I feel like I am finally getting started in the right direction with this course. Thank you!" - Brandi

Access to the knowledge you need, without hefty certification costs.

Grow in your knowledge, as Lea teaches you from her own experience and education what individuals and businesses typically pay thousands for - at a fraction of the cost.

Start your essential oil journey on the right foot - no previous knowledge required!

WHAT THIS PROGRAM ISN'T This is not a certification course. Although you will get a certificate of completion, you won't be a certified aromatherapist. This course is about the basics, not about every essential-oil related topic under the sun. Up-coming courses will go deep into subjects only touched on in this one, such as pregnancy and children.

WHO THIS PROGRAM IS FOR This is for users who want to learn the basics about essential oils, so they can safely use them for themselves, their families, and their friends. This is also for people who want to become certified, but don't want the time and cost commitment.

WHY IS THIS COURSE SO AFFORDABLE? If you knew what I charge to consult, you may be wondering why the low price? It's easy: because I want this information accessible to everyone. There is way too much mis-information out there - in fact downright unsafe and scary info! You deserve to be empowered with knowledge to use essential oils safely.

WHY PAY WHEN YOU CAN LEARN THINGS FOR FREE? There is no shortcut. You can waste endless hours browsing google, and still end up confused with all the conflicting information. Ask me how I know! The only TRUE shortcut is knowing what to do and when to do it.

WILL I HAVE INSTANT ACCESS TO THE COURSE? Yes! You will have access to Modules 1, 2, and 3 as soon as you have registered. Modules 4 and 5 will be released 7 days after enrollment, Module 6 will be released 14 days after enrollment, and Module 7 (along with the BONUS module) will be released 21 days after enrollment. VIP upgrade information will be emailed to you within 48 hours of enrollment.

WHAT IF I CAN'T KEEP UP? You can go at your own pace, as fast or slow as you'd like - you have lifetime access!

What students have said about learning with Lea...

I'm just starting out and am so excited. You have given me so much confidence. I'll be making my first blend soon. Oils are on order. Thank you for providing so much information in such a way that a newbie does not feel intimidated. - Deborah

You are helping a lot of people with your authentic, helpful nature. It makes it so much easier to learn because you are so genuine! I learn something every day! - Linda

Lea, you rock! I love all of the tips you gave to this group. We're so lucky to be in this group learning from you! - Jamie

"Thank you Lea for putting together such an informative basics course. I am amazed at just how little I knew about oils and how to use them safely prior to starting your course. All components of the course were extremely beneficial and gave me lots of options to consider when using my oils. Each module gave me answers to a mountain of questions I previously had and I now feel extremely confident in using my oils. I would highly recommend this course to people wanting to use essential oils as it really does give you the fundamental basics you require and more." - Emma
