WHY LEARN FROM ME?
Hi I'm Jenny, the course tutor. I've been an aromatherapist, an aromatherapy tutor and practicing holistic therapist since 1997.
From the time I started reading aromatherapy books I couldn't believe how essential oils changed my life. My family had fewer doctor's visits, my house smelled divine, I had quick fixes for stress and grumpy days, I could rustle up a remedy for PMT, chicken pox, headaches and lots more.
Whether you want to fulfil a personal passion or to create an aromatherapy business, this course will transform your life with what you'll learn inside. I have taught over 150 aromatherapists who went on to set up their own successful businesses. And many more holistic massage therapists, reflexologists and others who took courses to upskill.
I'm qualified in aromatherapy, clinical aromatherapy, holistic massage, sports massage, pregnancy massage, Indian head massage, hot stone massage, Reiki, IET, reflexology, acupressure and natural facial. My teaching qualifications include an ITEC Teachers' diploma, VTCT assessors' award and a FETAC Train the Trainer Certificate.
As a therapist, I've worked in a Day Spa, and in private holistic centres. As a teacher, I've taught private classes, adult education classes in VEC colleges, and I've run diploma courses for VTCT and ITEC. I ran my own successful holistic centre, Essentials Holistic Centre in Malahide, Dublin, from 2012 to 2019. I made the difficult decision to close this lovely centre when the demand for online training grew a lot bigger than the demand for in person courses. And all pre covid!
My students and I have had the most spectacular results using essential oils, I included some of the stories and recipes in my book "A Step By Step Guide to Aromatherapy For Common Ailments" which includes recipes for over 30 common physical ailments. The book is available in all Amazon stores.
Several hundred of my students are happily running successful aromatherapy businesses that lets them help people every single day, and get well paid while they do it.

- O'Brien Finlay

A lot of international insurance companies also accept the course including:-
- Westminister Global

How much will it cost to get everything I need to start working as an aromatherapist?
You will need
A massage table which will cost about €100 - €150/£90 -£135/$112-$170
All your towels, plinth covers, a blanket, pillow cases will cost about €60/£55/$45.
20 essential oils
Buying online oils cost between €3 and €10/£2.67-£8.90/ $3.50-$12
Buying locally between €7 and €12/£6.20 - £10.70/$7.50-$14.
4 carrier oils will cost about €10- €15/£9-£14/
Your total costs will probably be less than €500/£450/$550
I will suggest essential oil suppliers who sell high quality and reasonably priced essential oils.
Do I need to buy all the essential oils and and vegetable oils right away?
No, 20 essential oils and 4 vegetable oils are enough to start working as an aromatherapist. You can buy a few oils a week or get a kit straight away.
I will give you a list of my top 10 and top 20 essential oils with 4 must have vegetable oils.
Will I be able to learn everything I need if I speak English as a second language, if I have dyslexia or other learning difficulty or if I haven't studied for years?
Absolutely. The course materials include captioned videos, PDFs and charts and are designed to suit all learning styles. There is a mix of questions, open and multiple choice.
Over the years I have come up with a lot of pretty unique and often entertaining ways of remembering the information you need.
As you work through the course, I would love to hear if there are any extra resources that would help you learn and enjoy the course more.
And, don't forget, this is not a "set and forget" course. Myself and another experienced tutor will be on hand to guide and support you.
How many hours a week do I need to study?
There are no set hours required as you have lifetime access to the course.
But, to give you an idea of a 5 month period, taking 2 weeks off in that time:-
Aromatherapy with anatomy & physiology 5-6 hours a week.
Aromatherapy and massage 4 hours a week.
A huge advantage to online courses is that you can listen while you travel, do housework, collect your children from school or activities etc. You can listen to the theory lessons while you travel, do housework
I'd love to do the online aromatherapy course but it needs to make sense financially. Will I be able to earn back the cost of the course and increase my income?
Over 150 aromatherapists have trained with me and are making a good living offering aromatherapy treatments, making bespoke aromatherapy products or a combination of both. Some are trained in other therapies, some are not.
It does take time to build up a client base. How quickly you do this will depend on how much time you can put into learning how to market yourself.
The bonus module, "Build Your Business while you Train" is available free if you enroll on the course by 31st July. Many of my students have used the strategies in this module and have had 3,4 or even 5 clients wanting to book in with them as soon as they qualified.
How long do I have to do the assignments and send my practice videos in?
The beauty of online is that you do everything in your own time. Some people complete the course in 9 months, some in 3, the vast majority take about 6 months.
So you can complete everything in your own time and you have access to me and to my feedback for a full 12 months.
But I'm REALLY not tekkie, will I be able to do the course?
You absolutely will.
The course is easy to sign into and to get around.
I've made a video and a step by step PDF to show you how to create a video of your techniques and send it to me.
I know how seriously daunting this can be for lots of people so I have made it very straightforward. And, I'm at the end if an email and very happy to help you with anything at all related to the course.
Will I have a massage qualification as well as an aromatherapy qualification?
Yes and you will be able to advertise yourself as a massage therapist as well as an aromatherapist.
We don't cover advanced massage techniques as we would in a massage diploma course, but there will probably be a short add course available within the next few months that will cover deep tissue, sports injury massage etc.
Do I have to do massage?
No, the massage and facial modules are optional. The massage module is free, but not obligatory, so generally there is no reduction if you if you opt not to do it.
But, because of covid19, there is a reduced rate of €750 for students who don't want to do the massage module.
Is there an exam at the end of the course?
No. There is ongoing assessment and an end of course assignment.
SO much less stressful!
You'll complete written assignments as you work through the course.
When you come to the massage module, you'll send me videos as you learn the techniques. You'll also need to send me 3 videos of the full treatment including the facial.
For the end of course assignment you choose from one of several interesting topics or you can choose your own topic (which we can chat about).
No exam is necessary as I will see clearly how you're progressing and where you may need help. The course is all about you becoming a confident and knowledgeable aromatherapist whether you are learning for your own use or to set up an aromatherapy practice
What Anatomy & Physiology Courses are acceptable?
You can take my Anatomy & Physiology course and study Aromatherapy and Anatomy & Physiology at the same time.
Other courses are acceptable too, including ITEC, VTCT, Centre of Excellence and more.
As long as you have covered all the systems of the body, any other certificate is acceptable.
Why do I need to have an Anatomy & Physiology qualification to get an Aromatherapy Diploma?
First, you won't get insurance to practice without an Anatomy & Physiology qualification.
Second, you'll be using essential oils to treat all the systems of the body, so it makes sense to be familiar with them, so you can get the best results possible for your clients and use the essential oils safely for people with particular conditions.
ONLINE BUT NOT ALONE
I understand that the online aromatherapy course is a big commitment. If you're not used to online courses and you're not tekkie minded, you may be worried that you'll be overwhelmed and confused.I have made everything straight forward and easy to follow but just to be sure why not take the course for a "test drive"? If you change your mind for any reason within 14 days after you enroll, I will refund your fees, no questions asked. Jenny xx
