Natural Awakenings Boston

Aromatherapy Courses at the Boston School of Herbal Studies

The Boston School of Herbal Studies is offering two Aromatherapy Certification courses this winter taught by Linda Patterson, a master teacher with more than 20 years of experience. The focus is on how to use essential oils to heal body, mind and spirit.

“Essential oils are an important resource during this time of year when respiratory illnesses can spread throughout our schools and communities. Aromatherapy, when properly used, can kill airborne microbial and respiratory infections quickly and effectively,” says Patterson.

Level one Aromatherapy Certification teaches about the body systems, their common ailments and the essential oils most helpful for each condition. Three different methods of blending are introduced with demonstrations on how to use essential oils in everyday life. Students learn how to make natural cosmetics and to use essential oils to trigger memory, mood and attraction.

Level two explores the chemistry of essential oils and introduces kinesiology/muscle testing, dowsing and reflexology. The Boston School of Herbal Studies also offers Herbal Apprenticeships, Advanced Training and a variety of evening classes with webinars. Upcoming workshops include The Ancient Art of Soap Making; Awakening the Spiritual Heart with Flower Essences, Herbs and Essential Oils; Making Mead; Herbal Ecology and All About Honey.
