Why learn with me
I’m a certified aromatherapy teacher (L1) through The School for Aromatic Studies as well as a certified aromatherapist with over 235 hours of professional aromatherapy training and over 75 hours of study in anatomy and physiology through Aromahead Institute: School of Essential Oil Studies. I’m not affiliated with any essential oil company, and don’t advertise or promote any essential oil brands in my workshops. I won’t try to sell you anything. I teach unbiased information and guide you in how to make aromatherapy products so you’re empowered with knowledge and the tools you need to use essential oils safely and effectively.
“I am so pleased that I was able to attend one of Penny’s aromatherapy classes. I am very new to essential oils and wanted some clear and basic information that wasn’t skewed by a company selling a product. I got that and more from her class. Penny thoughtfully and clearly educated us on the most common essential oils (such as tea tree, lavender, peppermint, etc.) and their uses, explained the chemistry behind the oils at a basic level so we could understand what was making an oil beneficial, explained carrier oils, dilution, and how to use essential oils safely with kids. She also taught us about diffusers, giving honest information about the benefits and limitations of various brands and models. I’m so grateful to have Penny as a resource as I continue to explore adding essential oils to my family’s life. I highly recommend her services to anyone looking for educated, unbiased information about aromatherapy.”Kerrin T.
“I’m an esthetician and have also taught esthetics at several different schools in NC and MA. I have had numerous essential oil classes and I have to say that Penny is very knowledgeable in her area of study. She has a passion for all that the essential oils have to offer to her clients and their lives. Her class was very informative, well organized and fun. I walked away with insight and information that has helped expand my essential oil curiosity! I would recommend her classes to both the essential oil newbie, the experienced enthusiast, as well as everyone in between!!”Victoria L.
“Penny Oakes’ Essential Oils class is fun and educational. She knows her stuff! I was impressed with her knowledge of each oil and its properties. Penny takes the time to listen to her student’s questions and concerns. She made the lesson fun and easy to understand. If you are interested in learning about Essential Oils, I highly recommend her classes.”Kathy C.
