One of the tough things about giving someone a sample of an essential oil is that often that person doesn’t know what to do with it (other than whatever you tell them to). When you share essential oils with a “newbie,” it is important to also give them something containing more information about essential oils. The “Introduction to Modern Essentials” booklet is the perfect companion to essential oil samples!
What Is Great about This Booklet?
This little booklet is packed with a lot of great information! The first section introduces essential oils and teaches what they are and how they can be used to help enhance health and wellness. The 8th edition of this booklet now includes recipes for diffuser blends, roll-on blends, massage oil blends, bath salts recipes, and cooking guidelines in this section. The next section lists the 44 most common essential oils and some of the ways each one is used. In the last section, the Personal Guide, readers can discover which essential oils, essential oil blends, and essential oil–inspired supplements are commonly used for hundreds of different health conditions. Not only does this booklet give your “newbie” enough information to start using the essential oils, but there is also a place on the back to include your contact information so they know how to contact you if they wish to purchase more oils.
Introduction to Essential Oils Class Idea
The goal of this class is to help your attendees learn about essential oils and show them how to find answers to their essential oil questions.
Conduct a scavenger hunt activity. Pass out an “Introduction to Modern Essentials” booklet to everyone in the class. (We recommend letting them take their booklet home with them as a free gift. Make sure to include your contact information on the back!)
Everyone (all class attendees) tries to find the answer in their booklet.
The first person to find the answer raises their hand and waits to be called on to state the answer and where they found it.
Give a little time so everyone can also find the answer by going to that page. During this time, you can pass the winner a small treat (this is optional but fun!).
Repeat with a new question.
Doing a scavenger hunt activity can not only help bring some fun to your class and make it memorable, but it also gives your students a reason to look through the “Introduction to Modern Essentials” booklet. As they look through it and find the answers to the questions, they will learn so much about the essential oils and what essential oils can do for specific conditions. It also helps them learn how they can use the booklet to find answers to their own questions. Doing this activity will increase the likelihood of your attendees trying the essentials oils and even purchasing more.
Open the class up for questions. Be sure to leave time to answer questions your attendees have. Try to keep the questions in this class focused more on the essential oils and their benefits. Refrain from marketing a particular brand of essential oils, but rather refer them to another class (even if you hold your marketing class after a 10-minute break) to learn more about where they can purchase essential oils. Remember: Your goal with this class is to help your attendees learn more about the essential oils and how to find information about which oil(s) to use for their health challenges.
