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.

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.

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 as soon as you have registered. Modules will be released as follows: Oct 16 - Modules 1, 2, 3; Oct 23 - Modules 4, 5; Oct 30 - Module 6; Nov 6 - Module 7; and then the BONUS course on Blending. Links to the facebook groups, and the VIP perks will be shared in an email by Monday, October 16th.

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!
