You are drawn to what interests you for a reason.
They can set you on paths of exploration that bring deep fulfillment and purpose to your life, and allow you to help others in a way that is unique to YOU.
I believe that following your guidance is some of the best service you can offer to the world.
So if you’re drawn to start your own line of essential oil products, I want to encourage you . . .
Now is an amazing time to begin a career in Aromatherapy!
Here are 7 ideas for starting your own Aromatherapy line:
- Sell essential oils and hydrosols
- Sell natural carrier oils and butters
- Blend your own all-natural skincare products
- Create a line of Aromatherapy hair care products
- Make essential oil diffuser blends
- Craft your own line of unique body care and wellness products
- Formulate a line of all-natural essential oil cleaning products
This list of 7 is just to get you started—there are so many ideas for creating Aromatherapy product lines that I wouldn’t have room to explore them all here!
I’d like to tell you about Aromahead graduate Christine Chemin.
She gave herself a thorough education in the art and science of essential oils by becoming a Certified Aromatherapist . . . and she started a beautiful Aromatherapy business in Ecuador called Aromavida!
Christine creates and sells all of the 7 kinds of products I mentioned above on Aromavida’s website. (It is in Spanish, so if you would prefer to read English, you can use Google translate and the site will make perfect sense!) Her vision is “to be the leader in the production and promotion of aromatherapy in Ecuador for a healthier life.”
Aromavida’s products are handmade, vegan (except for those that contain beeswax), and organic.
I wanted to share Christine’s business with you to show you . . . if you can’t decide what kind of Aromatherapy line you would like to start, you can make a wide variety of products!
It gives people more opportunities for getting to know your business. If someone uses one of your skincare products and loves it, you can tell them about your natural cleaning products, too. Building trust and relationships is a big part of running a successful, lasting business. (And it’s fun!)
Once you’ve decided what kinds of products you’d like to make and sell, you can start sharing them with others. Give them to friends, and build a small social media following and announce when you have made a new batch of products. You can create a website with an online shop, sell your products through local businesses (like health food stores, massage studios, and spas), or you could start your own physical shop where you sell your products to your local community.
However you decide to start your career in Aromatherapy, it’s essential to have a solid foundation of education.
Knowing how to safely formulate the products you want to sell—while still ensuring they’re effective—is important. It protects both your customers, and you. Your education will help your customers to trust you.
You can begin by getting your Aromatherapy Certification.
This will give you a strong, research-based essential oil education.
You’ll understand how to identify the ideal oil for every occasion, how to choose effective substitutes, WHY essential oils work so well, what goes into creating successful blends, safety issues (SO IMPORTANT!), pricing your products so they make you a lovely profit, and more.
