Welcome to the new year!
Do you have big plans for the coming year? Dreams or changes you would like to see in your life? Changing your life for the better is all about having a dream that inspires you, and then taking step-by-step actions toward that goal.
Maybe you’ve even thought about starting a career in Aromatherapy.
But is that possible?
What kinds of opportunities are really out there that Aromatherapists can do for work?
Actually, now is the PERFECT time to use essential oils professionally! Lots of people are starting careers in Aromatherapy, or using essential oils in an existing business.
More people are looking to lead healthy, natural lifestyles these days. We’re eating more naturally, cleaning more naturally, and caring for our health more naturally. Aromatherapy is becoming incredibly popular, since essential oils offer plenty of natural, effective options.
But it also means that it’s easy for anyone to share “information” about essential oils... and all too often, the information being shared isn’t reliable (despite the good intentions of the people sharing it).
As Aromatherapy is gaining in popularity, we need well-educated professionals, people who are role models, who know how to use the oils effectively and safely.
So here are 30 ideas for careers in Aromatherapy, and ways you can use Aromatherapy in a business!
