to perform 13 Vitaflex Procedures, to understand the scientific basis
for Vitaflex, to know when and to whom to apply them, and what benefits
can be expected from their application.
- Upon Completion of the Raindrop Technique Training you will

and precautions, and know its potential benefits. This class also leads

I, Chemistry II, or Emotional Release which may be taken ala carte.
All persons seeking practical knowledge and skills in the healing art
and science of applied aromatherapy are encouraged to participate in
CARE seminars. CARE Courses may be taken with or without the intent
to become certified.
There are several required texts to complete the CARE Certification
Process, but there are NO required texts for taking any CARE Course.
However, the chemistry course is based on the text, The Chemistry
of Essential Oils Made Simple (See Resources),
which will be referred to often during the class. Obtaining this text
before class is highly encouraged and should be brought to class in
order for you to receive the most benefit from this course. At most
seminars copies can be purchased on site.
