Essential Oil Safety Masterclass - Tisserand Institute

ESSENTIAL OIL SAFETY MASTERCLASS

With Robert Tisserand

Essential oils are brimming with powerful constituents that can soothe and hydrate skin, speed up wound healing, ease pain, calm the mind, and more. But with great power comes great responsibility because they can also cause skin irritation, sensitization, phototoxicity, and other preventable adverse reactions.

This six-week online certification course – instructed by the author of Essential Oil Safety and one of the world’s leading experts – will explore the science behind safety, and the reasoning behind safety guidelines. You’ll discover how essential oils work in the body, identify constituents responsible for certain properties (beneficial or otherwise), evaluate risks against benefits, calculate proper percentages, and more.

Whatever your level of knowledge, this Masterclass will enable you to make your own informed decisions about essential oils according to current evidence, clinical trials, and best practice. Stop second-guessing – confidently and safely create essential oil preparations for yourself, family and friends, and aromatherapy clients.

About the Tutor: Robert Tisserand

Essential Oils Expert, International Speaker, Author and Educator

Robert Tisserand is a renowned expert on the science and benefits of essential oils and their safe and effective application. He has inspired audiences in the UK, USA, Canada, Australia, Brazil, Czech Republic, China, Hong Kong, Singapore, Taiwan, Korea and Japan on topics ranging from the therapeutic foundations of essential oils to their interactions with the skin, always with a strong focus on minimizing risk.

When Robert first encountered aromatherapy in the 1960s there was no awareness of safety issues, but for good reason – very little research had been carried out. After this research started to appear in the 1970s, Robert felt a responsibility to share it with the growing aromatherapy community, and in 1985 self-published a small book: The Essential Oil Safety Data Manual.

In 1995 Robert wrote Essential Oil Safety, an extensive textbook published by Elsevier, and in 2014, along with Dr. Rodney Young, he co-authored the vastly expanded second edition, which has sold over 15,000 copies and has become an industry standard. Most of the safety guidelines from suppliers, aromatherapy schools, or blogs derive from Robert’s work. He has acted as an expert witness in court cases, and has consulted with large corporations to assess the safety of their essential oil-based products.

Robert brings over 40 years of experience in essential oil blending, and development of functional fragrance for products that combines perfumery principles with therapeutic, hygienic, and dermatological properties of essential oils. In 2015, he relaunched the Tisserand Institute (first founded in London in 1988) as a one-of-a-kind online learning portal for evidence-based education on the safety, potency and potential of essential oils for human wellbeing.

What previous students say about the Essential Oil Safety Masterclass:

After working with essential oils for 32 years I’m fairly confident in my knowledge, but I have learned quite a bit from this class. Very impressed and grateful to Robert and Hana & Co. for all your work!

Dana Gass

Thank you for such a wonderful and informative class! I have learned an abundance of wonderful information to not only help me to help others, but also to be able share my newly attained knowledge to help others better understand EO safety. I’m hoping for more of these in the future as I expand my knowledge of Aromatherapy! Thank you again! Blessings to all!

Lisa Macy

I wanted to thank you so much for this class! It was wonderfully organized and I looked forward to it every week. I really appreciate all your efforts to bring essential oil safety awareness to everyone. I am constantly referring to your book in my store and recommend it to all of my students. Thank you, thank you, thank you! I am really looking forward to future classes!

Natalie Hajdu-Voakes

I had taken the Safety Masterclass and wanted to thank you and Robert for all the information and material that you put together for us. This kind of functional information is very helpful and makes the journey into the fragrant world of essential oils coherent and easier to navigate. Thank you for all your efforts.

Anshika Goel

I want to thank you and Robert for all the effort that went into putting this invaluable webinar together.  For years, I have had inaccurate or incorrect information about essential oil safety, having relied on the information I found in aromatherapy reference books, various sites on the Internet and large essential oil companies.  I am so happy I finally have a greater depth of understanding about what I have discovered to be a quite complex subject. Apart from the content of the webinar, the logistics and online resources for the class were very well organized and easy to use.  I plan on taking additional classes in the future.

Lorraine Wolfangel-Hall

Dear Hana, Robert and Team,

I thoroughly enjoyed this course! I had many conflicts in my schedule but you and your team set everything up to be as easily accessed by computer as possible. Hearing the Q&A as well as the print outs was also a real bonus. I learned many new things I was unfamiliar with and those are the real value!!

Thanks and again and many blessings to you all.

Sara Holmes

I want to thank you for this course. I feel so confident having your institute as my education platform. I’m a beginner but with your amazing education, it won’t be long before I’m a pro!

I teach aromatherapy and I’m taking this class to ensure that what I teach on safety is up to date and accurate. I have Robert’s book, and have read it from cover to cover at least twice, but it’s great to have an interactive course.

The prompt response to our questions is fantastic. The presentations each week are very educational, they address my concerns about safety, and the overall format is brilliant!

The course and online platform are a chance to ask Robert questions directly – and to see everyone’s questions. The entire course – from syllabus to platform, webinars to reminders, handouts to community engagement – is masterfully put together and executed.

It’s helpful to have access to credible information. There’s so much information out there, it’s hard to know what is credible and what isn’t.

FAQ

Each lesson will be released on Tuesday starting October 22. They are recorded so you can watch them at any time you want.

Not a problem. Each live webinar lesson will be recorded so you can watch it later, and you will be able to ask questions through our learning portal. The recordings will be available to you for the remainder of the course, plus an extra four weeks after the last lesson.

Yes. Each lesson comes with printable handouts of the slides used in the lesson, and additional lesson notes. These are sent to you before each lesson and are for you to keep and refer to at any time.

Many of our students have commented that our courses helped them grasp what they learned elsewhere in more detail, or complemented their previous education. Some of our students are lifelong learners, and some are teachers.

We will let one of our previous students answer this one:

“The information presented is appropriate for all levels, and although I am just beginning my aromatherapy journey it all makes sense.”

Each weekly lesson is followed by a multiple choice quiz, and there is a summary test at the end of each of the two courses. Passing both the weekly quizzes and the final tests is a requirement for certification.

There will be three live Q&As, one on Thursday, November 7 at 9am PST, and the other two on Tuesday December 3, one also at 9am PST, and the other at 8pm AEDT

Absolutely! In addition to the live Q&A sessions, you can post your questions in the dedicated student forums.

The weekly lessons are recorded so you can view them any time from their release.

You will have access to all the recordings and course materials for four weeks weeks after the last lesson, so up to the end of December 2019.

Because we have students from all over the world and of many professions we are not able to offer credits for specific organizations – there are simply too many. However, we issue a confirmation of CE hours gained on the course that you can apply with your professional organization and will be happy to assist with any additional documentation.

We have found that running classes on specific dates works best to help you finish a program. You join a class of students, and learn along with them. Many students help each other with queries, and of course our tutors are there too. That said, if you miss a few classes you should be still able to comfortably jump right back in and if you do fall behind you can request extra time. Of course this cannot be indefinite, but we do our best to help you get your certificate.
