Essential Oils and Aromatherapy Kits

Essential Oils

As you probably know, The Aromatherapy School no longer sells essential oils. We've passed that portion of our business on to Artisan Aromatics. They offer all the same quality essential oils from the same sources as we did plus Artisan Aromatics now offers several additional oils with almost one hundred additional ones on the way in the near future.

Artisan Aromatics has created aromatherapy kits exclusively for The Aromatherapy School. Each kit (for Level I and Level II) contains all of the oils that are covered in each level. Students are not required to purchase the kits but, if you are in need of a number of essential oils, Artisan Aromatics has made them available at a discount: 10% off for all Healing Arts Practitioners / 20% off for all current and former students of The Aromatherapy School.

All of the Essential Oils in the Level I and Level II Essential Oil Kits are Therapeutic Quality. Some of the Essential Oils come from Artisan Aromatics' Artisan collection and the remainder of the Essential Oils come from their Therapeutic collection. These Essential Oil Kits are designed to specifically meet the requirements for The Aromatherapy School's Level I and Level II Aromatherapy Workshops but, of course, the kits also make great starter kits for anyone.
