I know… that’s a pretty big statement to make!

Some of us can remember a time when it was difficult to even find essential oils… let alone purchase pure, sustainable ones or learn to make our own safe, effective blends.
These days, essential oils are everywhere!
Aromatherapy has become SO popular. And the internet allows us to connect with like-minded people, and find others who want what we have to give (including our knowledge of essential oils!)
Aromatherapy jobs are flourishing in this environment.

Here are 20 ways you can earn money as an aromatherapy teacher:

One thing you’ll want to seriously consider:
If you want a career as an aromatherapy teacher,
you’ll definitely want to invest in your own education.
Understanding essential oil science can go a long way toward building your confidence, and your clarity when you’re sharing information with others. It’s also important to know about safety issues, chemistry, recent research, potential drug interactions with essential oils, how many drops of oil to use, and more.
There is so much to know!
That’s why there is so much to teach.
