Who Is This Course For?  

(Q & A)

If you love essential oils and want to use them with greater confidence and skill, this certification course is for you. Your credential will validate your knowledge!

The Essential Oil Academy™ offers a comprehensive course of guided, online study designed to raise the standard of education and knowledge among those who love and use essential oils, including wellness advocates, essential oil sellers and distributors, particularly those who sell for doTERRA, Young Living, Ameo and other essential oil suppliers.  

If you are tired of trying to compete with millions of other essential oil sellers or are frustrated because you want in-depth essential oils training without the aromatherapy time commitment, this course is for you!  In this essential oil certification course, you'll learn all about essential oils, how they are made, safety precautions, how to create both therapeutic and perfume blends and the business component to give you a huge boost!

The essential oil certification will also benefit health care practitioners, massage therapists, natural health proponents, holistic care providers and nutritionists.  Doctors, chiropractors, nurses and others will also benefit from the training and additional essential oil training credential.

The training is also ideal for those who seek in-depth knowledge about the use and benefits of essential oils in the care of their own family, their personal health as well as in a professional, business environment as well as those who are seeking to complement modern (western) medicine. The essential oil training is designed to meet you where you are as a student, regardless of whether you are a professional or enthusiastic beginner.


Great question!  Because we are sharing essential oils, the same type of foundational knowledge is needed. But we are not training you to become an aromatherapist, rather a skilled expert at offering knowledgeable consultations, selling, teaching, creating products if you wish, both therapeutic and perfumery ... and doing so with greater empowerment and confidence than ever before.  

As a Certified Essential Oil Practitioner, your clients will know you completed an independent, 126 hour, accredited, professional training and credentialing beyond what your oil supplier offers, so that you can provide safer, more excellent service than what millions of others distributors can offer. 

Receive An ANEW UNIVERSITY, AADP Accredited Certification!


You will learn this profession in 9 weekly modules in a fun, progressive learning environment with an opportunity to affordably upgrade to our Premier Upgrade version (only $100 additional during initial registration) that offers a private forum!  There you'll receive additional essential oil training content and new industry development announcements as well.


When you register in the elite Premier Upgrade version of this course, you'll receive private forum access to supplementary content including charts, infographics, articles, forms, etc. You also have direct access to your instructor, classmates and grads.  In this group you can participate in dialogue with others, download your supplementary content, post questions about concepts presented in the course or discuss essential oil protocols with members to find solutions. You can hold each other accountable to completing tasks within the course and with developing your practice.

In the new Certified Essential Oil Practitioner profession, our goals are different than becoming an aromatherapist as an end unto itself.  You will likely already have a direction with your preferred essential oils company. This independent industry certification will soon be the "gold standard" for leading essential oil consultants.

Competitive Advantage:  We have already been contacted by top level MLM directors from essential oil companies to enroll their downline "builders" into this course. They realize knowledge is power ... power to help more people, earn more income and recruit greater numbers into their team on-the-move!

Your new certification will immediately raise the bar for you in this industry and offer you unmatched credibility so you are no longer one among millions of essential oil consultants.  Some of your classmates will arrive with essential oils knowledge from being an essential oils consultant for their chosen company.  Some will be proficient at offering classes. We will expand this knowledge to many more oils, teach you expert skills to create and fill your own classes, how to give one-to-one paid wellness consultations, how to charge, discuss legal matters, ethics, the FDA as well as address a myriad of other related matters as you learn about the oils.

* More about accreditation and recognition:  This academy is accredited by AADP, long respected as a natural health accreditation organization that oversees 80+ schools around the world.  This is NOT the same as US Dept. of Education regional accreditation. Essential oils, their study and use are not regulated, nor is there a government regulation body to oversee our training standards.  Hence we rely on industry leaders to hold one another accountable to maintaining the highest standards of integrity and safety.  
** Course Hours: Because the Board Certified Essential Oil Practitioner course is presented in an online format, the hours stated are equivalent to classroom hours.
