Classroom: Philadelphia Hall

Message from Dr. Moore:

I believe in experiential education with as much interaction and hands-on work as possible. We sample essential oils of all grades and types, pass around plants for students to touch, taste, and smell, and I encourage full participation from everyone in the class. Each person chooses two essential oils to research and present to the group. We have mini quizzes at the beginning of each lesson and a final exam at the end. This should prepare students to take and pass both the certification examination given by the Pacific Institute of Aromatherapy and the national registration examination offered by the Aromatherapy Registration Council.

This class is for you if you are interested in acquiring an in-depth aromatherapy education to help you with patients or clients. It is specifically designed for heath care professionals who want the technical expertise to use essential oils in a clinical setting.
We are working on getting CE approval for this class from the National Massage Board and the Nursing Board. Stay tuned on that development.

Please enjoy the photos below taken on our field trip to the Lavender Farm in Lincoln and I'll see you in October!
