The Complete Skin Series by Robert Tisserand
Essential Oils and the Skin
Learn the importance of precise dilution; to what extent essential oils are dermally absorbed; how to use them to address skin problems such as acne, fungal infections, psoriasis, rosacea and sun damage, and how to make up simple preparations with safe yet effective ingredients!
The Skin Series consists of nine webinars and evolved from six live webinars, which aired in 2012. These have since been considerably developed to include more material and a more detailed set of Notes. The Skin Series encompasses most of what is known about essential oils in relation to dermal effects, and it is all evidence-based. Most of the evidence consists of research articles, and some are based on photographs and/or case information from practitioners. In the whole series, there are over 200 citations. No previous knowledge is required.

Complete Skin Series Testimonials
*WOW* I just finished watching the first webinar “Healing Oils” from Robert Tisserand’s skin series. SOOOO impressed!!!! I love that he is super easy to listen to, easy to understand, and has lots of references. I learned SOOOO much in that 35 minutes! Another thing I love is that there is a PDF to print with most of the slides used in the presentation, so I can scribble notes around and to the side of them for referencing later.
Robert has this amazing ability to make things sounds so simple and basic, and yet you walk away with a deeper level of knowledge and understanding. I don’t know how he does it! Brilliant.Lea Harris, owner, Learning About Essential Oils
Hi Robert, I just finished listening to your first Webinar in the skin series and wanted to tell you how well done and concise it is. Even though I have been in Aromatherapy for more than 30 years, I learned some wonderful things from your webinar and can not wait until the next one is available. Thank you so much!Dee Gendrins
Robert, I know you are a busy man but I wanted to take the opportunity to thank you for you Complete Skin Care video series. I watched the first installment yesterday and it is wonderful! I look forward to the future installments.Chasa Cochran
What a wonderful intro video explaining how the course works. Clear and inviting.Andrea Butje, Aromahead Institute
I just wanted to send a note to thank you for this series. I am a botanist, science teacher and former clinical medical technologist, and I really appreciate the research summaries, the references, and your experienced interpretation of the study results. I appreciate your respect for the research and the recognition of its limitations as well. I love the calm delivery, the printable notes, the whole package. While I’m sure the in-person seminars are also wonderful, and I would love the hands-on aspect, this is a wonderful way to learn for me. I watch each webinar at least twice: once to stop the video regularly and take notes, and a second time to review my notes.
I have been using essential oils for about 10 years, and have completed an introductory Aromatherapy Course through Kurt Schnaubelt’s Pacific Institute of Aromatherapy, and while the approaches are different, I find them quite complementary. I also bought the book Essential Oil Safety and have been very pleased with it as a reference.
Thank you again.Char Bezanson, Northfield, Minnesota
The Skin Series includes material Robert uses in a weekend workshop entitled Essential Oils in Skincare. The following are testimonials from these events:
“I thoroughly enjoyed Robert’s class. He taught me more about essential oils than I would have learned on my own in years.”Maureen Harris-Coyle
The breadth of Robert’s knowledge in the field of essential oils is remarkable. He is a gift to those of us working with these gems of nature. But for me, even more importantly, he is an outstanding teacher; having knowledge is one thing, but being able to clearly and articulately impart it is another. He has both, and this indeed is what contributes to genius.Maren Good
For me, Robert Tisserand is the final word on essential oils, as well as the myth buster and the advocate. He’s also the most gentle and kind presenter I have come across.Sherrin Bernstein
I am always so grateful to study with Robert. The general information and even the slightest little details he shares are so valuable and often open up a whole new world.Nancy Graves
Robert has a wealth of knowledge about essential oils that is unsurpassed. A seminar with him is like a whole course condensed into a weekend.Sarah Bearden
Excellent seminar, very easy to follow. I could’ve easily listened for another hour or more at that pace. You presented very clearly in a well-organized and entertaining manner.Janina
I really enjoyed your online presentation and the handout info too… great job! The online option gets easier as you go along:)Kelly
I really enjoyed it-both the content as well as the style of presentation. It was great having the tech support there, nice to get messages back from him in the moment. I liked the question time between each section.Andrea
I learned a lot from the webinar because your explanations were very clear and understandable and would recommend them to anyone. You were giving information in such a way that all levels of aromatherapists and students would find helpful.Debbie
The nicest part of the seminar, for me personally, was that it was all usable information. Everything that you presented I can not only use for myself, but also share with others in a way that they can more easily understand and appreciate.Suzy

Thank you Robert for sharing your knowledge in such a user-friendly way. I look forward to sharing my action points from this seminar with my colleagues.
Thank you Robert for your great seminar in London. It was very productive and inspiring, and drives me to study essential oil chemistry more deeply—I’m going to pre-order your webinar recording so I can revise the lecture and find out more info anytime I want.
