There are an endless number of ideas for you to teach your own Aromatherapy classes.
Aromahead graduate Paula Begel is an Aromatherapy teacher who is amazingly skilled in versatile methods of all-natural healing.
She has mastered massage therapy, Swedish massage, meridian massage, pregnancy massage, Reiki . . . and Aromatherapy! (And that is only a short list of the fields Paula has studied!) Paula works one-on-one with her clients, and offers individual and group consultations. She has partnered with a group of physicians, “utilizing Aromatherapy to help with pain management and to help reduce narcotic use for chronic pain patients.”
Even looking at the short list of what Paula offers, you can probably imagine her opportunities for teaching classes are endless!
Teaching Aromatherapy is not the only thing Paula does . . . but I’ll bet she could fill as many classes as she chose to lead.
One thing you’ll want to seriously consider: If you want a career as an Aromatherapy teacher, you’ll definitely want to invest in your own education.
You’ll want to feel a lot of clarity on essential oil science, including things like safety (so important!), chemistry, recent research, potential drug complications with essential oils, how many drops of essential oil to use, how to select the ideal substitution if you run out of an oil, and more.
There is so much to know! That is why there is so much to teach.
If you aren’t sure where to start, your own education is the perfect place. You can learn about the Aromatherapy Certification Program that Paula graduated from here.
