Why Should you Take Aromatherapy Courses?

There are many people who feel that there is more than enough information on the Internet for them to learn to use aromatherapy but the truth of the matter is that much of the information on the Internet is not at all safe. There are many aromatherapy contraindications and warnings that need to be considered when choosing to use aromatherapy.

Many aromatherapy courses will just teach you what is already written in the common aromatherapy books, but even many of  the aromatherapy books are just information taken from the Internet and written in a different way to make it their own. You do NOT want more misinformation on aromatherapy!

Affordable, cheap aromatherapy courses are available that will teach you how to use essential oils safely and effectively.

Be sure to check around and find the right aromatherapy courses for you. Learn to choose aromatherapy courses that will teach you to use essential oils safely and effectively. They don’ t have to be expensive to be good, but just be sure that they are made according to the standards set forth by the National Association of Aromatherapists.

Essential Oils for Cats?

Posted on September 2nd, 2009 by admin

In a news article from the telegraph.co.uk today they are telling us about earthquake kits for dogs and cats. Apparently these kits come equipped with a padded jacket and rain hat, special boots to protect paws, and aromatherapy oil to soothe stressed out cats and dogs.

These emergency packs are supposed to be a big hit, especially in Japan.

When I read news articles such as this I tend to shudder. What can these people be thinking? Obviously if they were truly concerned for their little cats they would research and find out that aromatherapy should never be used on cats.Although Essential Oils are genearlly safe, there are certain aromatherapy contraindications.

It’s a shame that people will buy into something like this and end up harming their precious animals all because they do not take the time to do a little research.

Aromatherapy has been around for quite awhile now and you would think that people would know better. Aromatherapy courses are not very expensive – well actually some aromatherapy courses are very expensive, but you can find some quailty aromatherapy courses that won’t cost an arm and a leg. There is nothing stopping people from learning about aromatherapy properly by taking a simple aromatherapy course instead of acting out of ignorance.

Free Aromatherapy Courses

Posted on August 12th, 2009 by admin

There are many free aromatherapy courses available on the Internet, but the question you must ask yourself is

“Which Free Aromatherapy Course is Right for You?”

It might seem like a silly question because you are probably thinking to yourself, “If it is a free aromatherapy course, why would it matter which one I take. It isn’t costing me anything because it is free!”

Well, to be honest with you, it doesn’t matter to you financially which free aromatherapy course you choose, but it will matter dramatically in your learning experience if you were to choose the wrong one.

If you were to choose a free aromatherapy course from someone who is not a professional, or certified aromatherapist  you really don’t know if the information contained in this free aromatherapy course is safe to use on you and your family.

I have seen people on the Internet offering aromatherapy courses which advocate the use of Birch Essential Oil. This is a very disputed essential oil to use in aromatherapy and can cause severe damage and even death if not used properly. I have also seen people offering aromatherapy courses that advocate the ingestion of essential oils for everyday ailments. This is totally contrary to proper aromatherapy practices! There are aromatherapy warnings and contraindications associated with some essential oils and it is imperative that you learn about them in order to use essential oils safely and effectively.

Buyer Beware! May seem like an oxymoron when speaking of Free Aromatherapy Courses but in light of what I have seen around the Internet, believe me, You will want to be sure you are taking your course from someone who knows what they are talking about.

As G.I.Joe used to say “Now You Know and Knowing is half the battle”

Aromatherapy Courses Vs Self Study – Pros & Cons

Posted on June 6th, 2009 by admin

Many people, like yourself, have asked me what I think of taking aromatherapy courses versus just doing self-study via the Internet. The fact of the matter is that there are pros and cons to any decision we make and so we will try and address some of these in this article.

The obvious Pro of learning aromatherapy through self-study on the Internet is of course the savings in money. It costs nothing to Google aromatherapy into the search engine and come up with thousands of sites that have information regarding aromatherapy. And of course, these sources are free.

The Cons of learning aromatherapy by self study are as follows:

1) Even though the Internet is full of free information, this does not mean that the information is reliable. Although it is termed the information highway, it should be noted that many times it is more like a misinformation highway.

2) You may find unscrupulous people trying to sell their brand of essential oils and therefore will be very biased in when and how to use the oils. For example, there are MLM’s (multi-level-marketing companies) out there that would have you believe that essential oils do not have to be diluted. This is a great problem. Their advantage is that if they can get you to use their essential oils without diluting them, the essential oils will naturally not last as long and voila! They make more money out of you because you will need to buy their essential oils more frequently. They will insist that they have special therapeutic essential oils that do not need diluting. This is wrong! All essential oils need to be diluted. Yes, even Lavender and Tea Tree should be diluted because some people are extremely sensitive and we do not want to cause any harm to any individual.

3)By studying only by the websites on the Internet you may end up with gaps in your learning. Without following a set of standards on what you should know when using aromatherapy you will not be able to make your own aromatherapy treatments based on proven knowledge.

The Pros of Taking Aromatherapy Courses:

1) You will be led, step by step on how to use essential oils safely and effectively.
2) If you choose your teacher wisely then you will be following a set of standards set forth by the varying aromatherapy associations.
3) You will know that you are following the specific guidelines set up so that you are not causing harm to those you wish to make aromatherapy treatments for.
4) Your eventual clients will consider you knowledgeable and be more inclined to buy from you rather than someone who says that they are self-taught.
5) You can learn without gaps in your learning process.
6) You can follow easy to use curriculum which has been researched.
7) You can have pride in the fact that you are doing the best to your knowledge in using essential oils in a professional manner.

The Cons of Taking Aromatherapy Courses:

1) Just one con. That would be that it costs money. But don’t let that dissuade you from taking a good aromatherapy course. There are many aromatherapy courses on the Internet that provide you with the proper standards set for by the aromatherapy associations that are very affordable.

Remember that in order to become certified according to the aromatherapy associations you will need both a Level I and Level II course successfully completed.

Your Action Plan:

Check out affordable aromatherapy courses available on the Internet. Check out their syllabus and read their web pages. This way you can get a feel for what the teacher is like and how she/he relates to people through the written word. If you like their style and find them easy to understand then go ahead and take the course. It’s an investment well spent that will pay you dividends in the manner of better health and knowledge. Can we really put a price on that?

How to Become an Aromatherapist

Posted on June 6th, 2009 by admin

Has the thought of becoming an aromatherapist ever entered your mind? Many people are searching for a way to turn something they love into a full time job. Can taking aromatherapy courses allow you to enjoy a lucrative vocation?

Many people believe that taking aromatherapy courses are only good for teaching them how to use essential oils safely and effectively for their own personal interests. The truth of the matter is that not only do aromatherapy courses teach you how to mix essential oils for making soaps, candles and other homemade products, they also teach you how to use the skills you learn via the aromatherapy courses so that you too can become a certified aromatherapist.

By becoming a certified aromatherapist you would be receiving the aromatherapy training necessary to work in the wonderful field of Alternative Medicine and enjoy the many benefits that a good aromatherapy course would teach you.

What type of work could you do if you received your certification in aromatherapy?  As an aromatherapist you could work in a spa, consulting clients on the proper choice of essential oils they may need. How about consulting massage therapists on the best massage blend for their clients who are stressed out, or suffer from headaches.

If you wanted you could also open a retail store of your own and sell essential oils. If you have received your certification in Aromatherapy you would be much better able to assist your customers than the fellow working down the road in a natural health food store who has no aromatherapy training.

Does it matter which aromatherapy courses you take?  Yes it matters. You would need both a Level I and Level II Aromatherapy Courses in order to become certified as an aromatherapist. You must be sure that the courses offered meet the standards required by the National Association for Holistic Aromatherapy.  Be sure to check the syllabus for any aromatherapy courses you may be interested in and make certain that they meet the standards necessary.

As a certified aromatherapist myself, I can’t tell you how much I enjoy working with people everyday and teaching them how to use essential oils safely and effectively. I definitely recommend that you search the Internet and find a good, affordable aromatherapy course that you can learn from at home in your spare time.  Adding extra income to the family budget is always a plus and you will see for yourself how great it is to take healing back into your own hands.

Essential Lavender Oil: 5 Ways to Benefit from Lavender Essential Oil

Posted on December 2nd, 2008 by admin

Essential Lavender Oil is the #1 Oil sold by Aromatherapists around the world. It is the very first choice that the general public chooses and which aromatherapists recommend the most.

What is the reason for this phenomenon?

Why is Essential Lavender Oil the most loved oil?

What distinguishes it from the rest of the essential oils?

Essential Lavender has been the most popular since the beginning of the ages as far as we can trace it. The Greeks and Romans perfumed their baths with Lavender and it was a popular facial water between the 14th and 19th Centuries.

It was also burned as incense to the gods & goddesses and carried during the plague to ward off the diseases which were so prevalent.

The name Lavender comes from the Latin verb meaning “to Wash.” Lavender was essential to everyday living. It is even believed to ward off the evil eye.

Essential Lavender Oil blends well with many other Essential Oils also such as: Bergamot, Cedarwood, Chamomile, Clary Sage, Clove, Cypress, Eucalyptus, Fennel, Frankincense, Geranium, Grapefruit, Jasmine, Juniper Berry, Lemon, Lemongrass, Linden Blossom, Mandarin, Marjoram, Melissa, Myrrh, Neroli, Niaouli, Orange, Oakmoss, Patchouli, Peppermint, Pine, Rose, Rosemary, Sandalwood, Tea tree, Vetivert and Ylang Ylang.

Some of Essential Lavender Oils properties are: It is analgesic, anti-inflammatory, anti-microbial, anti-septic, anti-rheumatic, a cell regenerator and a disinfectant.

I would like you to note this very carefully. Most aromatherapy books and web sites say that you can use Lavender oil and/or Tea tree oil undiluted on the skin. This is what is known as a neat application. BUT the big surprise is that they are finding more and more people are becoming sensitized to these mild oils because they were not diluted in a suitable carrier oil.

ALWAYS DILUTE ANY ESSENTIAL OIL BEFORE USING ON THE SKIN!

Essential Lavender Oil can be used for so, so many things, I cannot write them all down in one article. But because of its diversity and the ability to be sedating or stimulating depending on its dosage this has made it the number #1 oil in aromatherapy.

Now, how can you use Essential Lavender Oil? I will tell you 5 ways as I promised

  1. Essential Lavender Oil can be used in a candle light diffuser. Simply add 3-4 drops in some water on the top and light the candle underneath.
  2. Essential Lavender Oil can be placed on a cotton ball and placed inside your pillow at night for sweet, relaxing dreams
  3. Essential Lavender Oil can be added to your evening bath by adding it to a teaspoon of carrier oil or honey. 10 drops per bath is about right.
  4. Essential Lavender Oil can be added to a Tissue Kleenex and then stick it on a fan. The fan will cause the Essential Lavender to permeate the immediate area. This is great if you are stressed out.
  5. Lastly, for this article, Essential Lavender Oil can be added to 15ml of carrier oil and massaged gently into your skin. If you can get a loving partner to do it for you then it will be even more relaxing.

I hope you have enjoyed these tips. Be sure to check out my webpage.

The Aromatherapy Course, Latin Binomials Made Easy is finally finished. Boy was this a hard piece of work,but I’m glad it’s done and looks lovely too.

It’s finally up on it’s site http://www.serenearomatherapy.com/latin-binomials.html


This is what the CD and Workbook look like:

When you get a moment go and check it out. It is pretty cool.

It is based on scientifically proven methods for memorization. It’s includes quizzes, crosswords,word games etc. Plus the software is really cool. You can adjust it to show you the Latin Binomials alphebetically and then when you have them down pretty good, you can go and change the algorithm to show the Latin Binomials shuffled. This keeps you on your toes. How can your brain be on your toes? hmmmm some sayings are weird.

Update on Aromatherapy Course

Posted on October 31st, 2008 by admin

As many of you know I am working on upgrading the aromatherapy course “Foundations in Aromatherapy Level I”. I am  hoping to have that up and running for Saturday Nov. 1, 2009 so keep tuned in :)

I am almost finished the touches on a great program that will allow you to learn the Latin Binomials very easily. There are 79 common Essential Oils in this particular aromatherapy program. Many students were complaing about how hard it is to learn their Latin Binomials.

I realize that it’s a pain sometimes to try and remember which one is which, but this new program will help you immensely. I have included music therapy and color therapy into the mix to help you learn even more easily.

The aromatherapy course itself has changed big time. Much, Much easier to read and even has bookmarks now so you can jump easily to any page you want to get to.  The Section on Physical and Emotional problems has also been revised so that you can see clearly now which essential oils should be used for the particular symptoms. A Real Handy Aromatherapy Desk reference. You’ll really appreciate this if you are considering taking the Second aromatherapy course, Foundations in Aromatherapy Course Level II, because you will be referring back to that section more than you can imagine.

So that’s all the news for now. Wish me luck as I try and make the deadline for November 1, 2008

All the best

Aromatherapy Course Level II in Progress: What Would You Like?

Posted on October 14th, 2008 by admin

As many of you know, I am presently working on the second level of the Aromatherapy Course so that many of you can become a Certified Aromatherapist. While adding all of the necessary information I am wondering what YOU would like to learn that I may be able to add for you. So I am coming right out and asking you:

What do you want in a Level II Aromatherapy Course?

There are so many questions that are being asked about Aromatherapy over the Internet especially places such as Yahoo Answers. Obviously everyone needs to know the basics such as How to use Essential Oils and how to use aromatherapy safely and effectively, but perhaps there is something that you have always wanted to know about aromatherapy that I could share with you in the Aromatherapy Course. So, here is your chance. Please leave your comments because I am hoping to wind up the aromatherapy course very soon. For those of you who know me well know that I am always trying to give my friends the best, so please use this opportunity to give some suggestions for the aromatherapy course and I will see what I can do. I hope to hear from you soon. Sharron


UPDATE: The Aromathearpy Course Level II is now finished and available to purchase online.

You can still feel free to ask your questions and who knows maybe I will make an ebook on Aromatherapy Questions: Asked and Answered :)
