Congratulations to Tyler and Kelley for becoming certified aromatherapists. They completed a 235 hour NAHA (National Association for Holistic Aromatherapy) approved program at Aromatic Wisdom Institute, which involved 

  • learning the chemistry of over 60 oils (molecule by molecule)
  • writing a research paper
  • completing multiple case studies
  • passing an anatomy and physiology course.
  • over 120 hours of in-class learning about botany, reading gc/ms reports, blending, plant parts and cultivation, safety, and more.

It's a lot of work! We are so proud of you both.

Kelley, Tyler and Jess can answer questions such as (just to name a few):

  • what is the therapeutic difference between spearmint and peppermint?
  • Why, based on chemical composition, does lavender work well for sleep and skin issues?
  • What molecules in essential oils are helpful for immune system support?
  • What are aldehyde-rich oils and why are they so good for fungal issues and insect repelling?
  • What is a safe dilution for clove oil?
  • What is the best carrier oil for a pain blend versus a facial oil?
  • What are safe (and unsafe) choices for children?
  • How can aromatherapy be useful in pet care?
