What Experts Are Saying:
“The importance of scent has long been underestimated. Studies have repeatedly demonstrated that smells alone can stimulate amazing reactions in the body. One aroma may enhance memory while another assuages anxiety. Any systematic approach to wellness should include multi-sensory stimuli and I can think of no one better to teach aromatherapy than KG Stiles. Her 30 years of experience combined with her passion to assist and facilitate the personal growth and wellness of all is unsurpassed! It is without hesitation that I recommend KG’s Aromatherapy course.”
~Eldon Taylor, Ph.D., FAPA, NY Times Best-selling author, "Choices & Illusions"
“The Aromatherapy Professional takes olfaction to a deeper level of understanding and effectively teaches us how we may heal using aroma through inhalation. As KG Stiles cites, Hippocrates said, “There is a remedy for everything to be found in Nature,” and KG’s instruction in formulations for face, and skin rejuvenation, relaxation and self care, as well as health and wellness treatments are well worth the price of admission. I highly recommend this course to all who are interested in holistic curing and the way that aromatherapy can be applied as an effective Mind Body technique.”
