“It has been such a pleasure learning about essential oils through JennScents Aromaversity. I love the close one-on-one mentoring that she does with each one of her students. And rather than spoon-feeding her students, she often challenges them to think critically and find the answers by themselves. She also encourages individuality, allowing each of her students to develop according to their background and strength.”

Why Study Aromatherapy with JennScents® Aromaversity?

Jennifer Pressimone, JennScents® Aromaversity Lead Instructor and Founder, created the online aromatherapy school to help others gain the knowledge, skills and qualifications to achieve their aromatic destinies.
