As promised, I want to high light essential oil education this week…what a better place to do it than from the Roman Coliseum!! Kidding;-) But Rome and Liz Fulcher do have some thing in common!!
In 1991, Liz (Head Educator and owner of Aromatic Wisdom Institute) had her second child in Rome. After they handed her her beautiful baby boy, they also handed her a mystery oil in an amber bottle! They instructed her to massage her new born with this oil! She was a little nervous with reservations and questions, but after seeing Gianluca calm down with a “kneedy” massage of Calendula and Roman Chamomile, she was intrigued.
All of this set her course to discovery and eventually being a highly regarded and recognized educator in this field. She recommends finding Essential Oil educators who are recognized by National Association for Holistic Aromatherapy NAHA) and the Alliance of International Aromatherapists (AIA).
I chose to go to Aromatic Wisdom Institute for my Aromatherapy Certification! It is located in Eastern Pennsylvania and offered a rigorous hands on, 3 month training for that certification. They also have many other classes in addition to that. I highly recommend this school if you are at all interested in learning more about essential oils. Maybe you are already involved in the sales of essential oils and you use them your self. The science behind the oil’s effectiveness is extremely important to understand and is invaluable when utilizing the therapeutic use of oils. Using essential oils every day is important to keep abreast of their properties, but getting a proper education is extremely important if you want to be safe and reputable.
I will discuss more about my education tomorrow, but if you want to check out more of Liz’s story, read the rest on aromaticwisdominstitute.com/ My unusual introduction into the world of Aromatics written by Liz Fulcher in 2011. She, through her school and literature, is fantastic resource to help you sort through questions on your essential oil journey.She is a gifted and inspirational teacher passionate about the science behind the oils.
