AromaChemistry with Dr. Timothy Miller

  • Clarion Hotel 2701 East Fowler Avenue Tampa, FL, 33612 United States (map)

Let’s face it: AromaChemistry can be challenging. So many different molecules, chemical families, technical drawings, and not to mention the hard-to-say names. Despite the visceral reaction we might have in response to all-things chemistry-related, essential oils are, after all, potent chemical cocktails. As such, understanding chemistry is the backbone to understanding the safe and effective use of aromatherapy.

Roll up your sleeves and get ready to see chemistry in a whole new light! Dr. Tim is going to show you how fascinating AromaChemistry is and how you can use chemistry in a profound and impactful way. We will revisit the primary biosynthetic pathways, functional groups, and their generalized therapeutic indications. We will outline the most important and juicy chemistry details so that you, the aromatherapy practitioner, can enhance your aromatic practice and maximize your therapeutic results while keeping in mind safety.

Please Note: This course is designed to be a low-pressure, fun learning environment where we start at the most fundamental, basic level for all topics discussed. Absolutely no prior understanding of chemistry or pharmacokinetics needed - we are starting at Square 1 and use easy-to-understand language throughout the course!

Class time is 9am–5pm. Class fee is $325 and includes materials.
