Aromatherapy education isn't accomplished in a one-hour sales meeting put on by someone trying to sell you oils. A minimum of 200 hours, and often much more, is required to obtain the education necessary to become a Certified Aromatherapist.

The training includes much more than just how to use the oils, but students are educated in the safest methods of using the oils, the properties and constituents of essential oils, contraindications to using oils, drug interactions, and so much more.

If you are interested in becoming an aromatherapist, or even if you just want to use your oils in a safe manner, check out some of the resources below.
