Back 2 Skool!!On Jun 28, 2012 1 Comment
I’ve been debating this decision for a bit now, however it was driven home like a punch to the face the other week when I launched the new massage bars and was contacted by quite a few pregnant women wanting to know if it was safe for them to use. That night was the deal maker for me – decision made!
I’m going to become a qualified Aromatherapist!!
I’m currently doing a lot of self-study about the chemical components and such used in soaping (the different surfactants and what they bring to the party is the current topic killing my brain cells – damn bubble bath!), but that’s more so I can perfect my recipe’s and actually know why different components cause different results.
I’ve decided to work on my Aromatherapy skills so I can expand my knowledge and eventually my line of products and know that I am qualified to put together essential oil blends to help people with different ailments. I already have all the general ideas for products I want to make, so now it’s time to learn the what and the why of the oils instead of just coping random recipe’s off the internet and assuming the author is knowledgeable.
I will be specialising in ante/post natal, babies and children mostly, but the course also covers a range of other areas. Including aromatherapy massage, which requires practice and clinical hours – gee, wonder how hard that will be to find guinea pigs for.
This week I’ve been busy getting everything set up and today walked a nerve wracking twenty or so meters from one bank to another with my course fee money – all the imaginary muggers in the world spring to life when I’m carrying a wad of cash like that.
It’s done now though! I’m officially enrolled and ready to start once these coming school holidays are over. I find it highly amusing that I’ve also enrolled my daughter into her first school this week as well. My baby girl starts Primary School next year *wipes a tear away*
