Aromatherapy Course

Level 1
Foundations in Aromatherapy

Have you been looking for affordable Aromatherapy Courses that will teach you exactly what you need to use Essential Oils safely and effectively?

What I am offering to you today is not a simple weekend aromatherapy course or small home study course to try and get you to waste your money.

I am also not going to offer you an aromatherapy course which is just information copied and pasted from the Internet in order to make money. (Believe me I have seen this happen)


What I am offering you today are Extremely High Quality Aromatherapy Courses That you will not be able to find Anywhere Else!

Although This is a Level I Aromatherapy Course, it far exceeds the standards set forth by the National Association For Holistic Aromatherapy

Level I Aromatherapy Courses usually cost
between $600.00 (the cheapest I've seen so far) and $1200.00 +

The price I am asking you to pay for this complete 

Level I Aromatherapy Course is




The price will be going up soon.
( I am giving you advance warning, I'm not trying to scare you into buying today)

This is an introductory price only

This particular Level I Aromatherapy Course is well worth more than the $1200.00 some people are asking!

This aromatherapy course is being offered as a .pdf file with over 400 pages and can be printed out if you prefer to read it like a book.

As far as I know this is the least expensive aromatherapy course on the market.

Because our aromatherapy courses are cheap does that mean they are poor quality?

For those of you who know me, you know that I am very conscious of the money grabbers who will try and sell you something just to make the almighty dollar.  

Do I want to make money? Of course I do, but it is not the main concern.

My belief is that if we help enough people in life that the good is returned to us in ways that we cannot imagine.

Money doesn't buy happiness because happiness cannot be purchased.
Happiness comes from within and when we help others then blessings come our way.
It's the law according to many spiritual leaders.


This is a Level 1 Certified Aromatherapy Course. (Level II is here)

But don't worry!

This is NOT your typical Level I Aromatherapy Course

Here You will not only learn the basics of aromatherapy but much more.

  • Have you wanted to know the therapeutic application of specific Essential oils? These are covered in depth in the Level I Aromatherapy Course. 127 Pages are devoted just to this particular area!

(This is big time information that will be indispensable to you as you practice aromatherapy!  This information comes from my published book "Ailments and Alternatives in Aromatherapy" which I am revamping at this time)
  • Being a woman, you know how difficult life can seem at times. With all the raging hormones sometimes it's enough to drive us crazy.  We have put together  special section just for women's issues such as p.m.s., menopause etc.

~ I took an Aromatherapy course before in Massage school I, and this course had SO much more information than I could have ever imagined. It was like my Massage class was just the tip of the Aromatherapy Iceberg.

This course is worth EVERY PENNY and SO MUCH MORE! I’ve looked at many books on Aromatherapy and took other classes, but nothing that even compares to this.

It is a great reference manual and you can refer back to it as you progress in the future.

The Foundations Course has wonderful detail and nice quizzes at the end of each chapter. You can study at your own pace. If you don’t understand something, you can go back and try it again.

Sharron is a wonderful teacher and always just an email away. She helped me out quite a few times during my study and is such a nice and caring person.

If you even remotely have an interest in Aromatherapy, I highly recommend the Foundations Course. You will not be disappointed.

I simply can't say enough about this course. I actually took a course before costing me $1,200 to get my certification. I wanted to take this course just for the fun to see what was in it.  Well I was so surprised!

This course offered so much information and was so well laid out. It was 10 times better than the course I spent $1,200 dollars on!

Way to go Sharron. You're a great teacher and I hope many others will be smart enough to take the time to read your course.

I cannot tell you how excited I was to read all of your valuable information and it was fun to actually try some of the "recipes" myself.

You're course is awesome! It went into more detail than the "certified clinical aromatherapy" course that I paid a heck of a lot more money for!

Good Job Sharron :)
I learned more about blending oils in the 7 groups for perfumery, balms and body sprays. It is very well explained.
Yes you can use my recommendation :)
Sharon has put together a wonderful course on the "Foundations of Aromatherapy".

If you are new to aromatherapy and would like to learn a little about it, then I highly recommend this course!

Sharon's course is very detailed and is professionally laid out.

I have taken other courses before for a lot more money and they were not near as informative as this.

You definitely won't be going wrong, you are getting great information here from a professional!!!
