With all the information and websites available on the topic of essential oils, we want to be very clear about the purpose of this academy and our website.

Highly-rated, independent academy and certifying body.

​Where can you go for an independent credential to demonstrate your knowledge, skill and credibility? How can you stand out from among the thousands of other essential oil sellers? With all the competition, you need help. Essential Oil Academy is here to answer this need.

You also need to understand safety issues and methods of application as well as the various components and how they work in our bodies to support our wellness. Our customers and clients expect us to know these things. You will learn these topics in the CEOP Certification course.

Essential Oil Academy was created to provide these main benefits:

  • First, we will offer a one-stop source for essential oil fans, practitioners, pundits and industry members to get the latest information, blog posts, articles, research and will curate this for you. We do not claim to be experts but we will offer you expert sources. For instance, an industry magazine is usually not "the" expert source, but rather interviews and offers expert information to readers. So, if you are an industry expert, and would like your work shared on this website, please contact us at info@essentialoilacademy.com. Our goal is to give you access to the most cutting edge information available today as well as resources to other excellent websites where you can gather more information for your review and analysis.
  • Second, we will offer a 9-module Certified Essential Oil Practitioner training course and certification. Why? Until now, to gain credibility in the use of essential oils, you had to attend an aromatherapy course. But that training we found, needed to be more focused on the needs of an essential oils advocate or distributor so we are giving you a great balance of information you can use immediately to expand your knowledge base and opportunities. As life coaching and counseling curriculum creators and trainers, we also wanted to add training on your interaction with clients, so that you know how to coach them effectively. We will offer you new ways to present the benefits of essential oils to others in a non-salesy way. 

Statement of Purpose and Mission

"The practice of using essential oils to enhance your health, lifestyle and capacity for wellness dates back thousands of years to the Egyptians, Greeks, Romans, Chinese and other cultures. It is written about in the Holy Bible countless times with directions for use and even recipes for anointing oils.

When modern science discovered methods of making pharmaceuticals and synthetic antibiotics that were more readily available, natural, God-designed solutions took a back seat. Over time, we have learned that science can not duplicate or replace the perfectly created healing properties of the plants available directly from the earth.

When times of financial difficulty arose and traditional, modern health care became either unavailable or financially out of reach for many, essential oils were re-discovered. This practice has grown by enormous strides, particularly in the last decade.

So, as an educator, I decided to take this on. I created the curriculum, collected the content and hired a staff of writers and creators to help me develop what is now the Certified Essential Oil Practitioner Course. You will find it on this website.

It is the mission of this academy to provide higher levels of education and credentials to those who already practice the use of essential oils. We dedicate this training, the educational resources and credentials to our forefathers, who embraced the riches provided by our planet and the wisdom of post modern practitioners who are now called to return to its roots." ~ Dr. Leelo Bush

Dr. Leelo and Evan Bush

The proprietors, Leelo Bush, PhD and Rev. Evan Allen Bush, husband and wife, have shown a lifelong commitment to living a happier, healthier life, as demonstrated in the highly-acclaimed training they have provided since the early 2000s as leaders in the life coaching and counseling / self help industry with nearly 20,000 students worldwide and graduates on every continent.

Although they believe there are many fine essential oil brands in the market, the Bushes were early adopters of the doTerra brand.

Dr. and Rev. Bush transfer their expertise in training and certifying life coaches and counselors to the essential oil industry, after seeing personal, dramatic benefits from the oils. There is no better testimonial to the efficacy and benefits of essential oils than that which an individual personally experiences.
