What is in the Practical Potions, Certificate Program, E-Course, Apprentice Ship Adventure?

The Practical Potions E-Course, Apprentice Ship Adventure, will give you credit toward a Certificate in Aromatherapy. An Advanced program will qualify you for a Diploma.

A personal note to those contemplating the Introductory, Practical Potions Apprentice Ship Adventure.

It’s been quite the voyage since we started teaching aromatherapy in a classroom over 35 years ago. Then, about 7 years ago, we adapted to an online format. We recently revised that version and now offer a deeper, more enriching experience, emphasizing the information and exercises our students love most.

Unlike much in this new era, this course does not offer a quick overview of aromatherapy but distills over 35 years of research, teaching, and work with essential oils. It took hundreds of hours and many years to create. It is a deep dive into aromatherapy, emphasizing scientific and intuitive perspectives.

We have navigated numerous experiences with aromatherapy, from selling our signature essential oils in our boutique in the ’90s to our present wholesale business. Having taught aromatherapy since nearly its inception in the late 1980s, we’ve witnessed its remarkable growth. Aromatherapy is both our business and passion. We use essential oils daily and still marvel at their usefulness and beauty.

If this is your first class with us, or if you are contemplating the introductory course, we encourage you to first embark on the Free Cruise. It’s an engaging way to discover if this adventure resonates with you and, in itself, an opportunity to learn more about aromatherapy.

With warmest wishes, Laurie and Robert
