We passionately provide the highest quality aromatherapy education for healthcare sites, healthcare practitioners and individuals who wish to use essential oils safely and effectively — and we always have fun while doing it!
Essential Health was created by Denise Joswiak as a result of her ongoing quest to promote and improve health. Our classes help individuals learn how to support their physical, mental, emotional and spiritual well-being. Our curriculum is comprehensive and our instructors provide a relaxed, enjoyable environment. Our Aromatherapy Certification Program provides deeper levels of information about natural products and essential oils, detailed science, hours of blending in class, and the ability to easily create products and share information with others. Consulting services range from personal consultations to helping healthcare systems create evidence-based aromatherapy programs that promote best practice for their patients/clients.
