When people come into Enfleurage excited about the idea of learning to use essential oils they’re often confronted with an unexpected feeling. Overwhelm. They’re overwhelmed by the number of essential oils and the amount of information about each oil. They’re overwhelmed and sometimes disappointed that this Aromatherapy thing isn’t as simple as they thought.
If this sounds like you, then cheer up. We’ve all been there, and our Top 20 Essential Oils class was created precisely for customers like you. This class is designed to get you up and running with Aromatherapy by teaching you the most important healing properties and precautions for 20 common and very useful essential oils. Our goal is to give students a functional repertoire of essential oil knowledge that can be applied for a variety of needs.
This is an excellent class for newbies who find themselves fascinated by essential oils but unsure of the next step in the process. This is also a great class for those of you who have limited essential oil knowledge. You may be one of the many who mistakenly think that each oil has only one function and as a result aren’t getting much use from the oils you do have. This class will cover the three most important properties for each of the 20 essential oils along with real life examples for applying those properties.
Bottom line – if 2013 is your year to start living more naturally, take control of your health, reduce your exposure to synthetic chemicals, and stop using artificial fragrance (please) then this class is time and money well spent. Join us on Sunday June 2nd @ 6:30pm. Click here to register.

Learn why all these people are smiling!
Okay everyone, new classes are finally posted. Our first Intro to Aromatherapy is happening on Wednesday May 1st at 8:15pm. It’s free so you can stop by and still pay all your bills on time. Tell your friends. On this summer’s schedule we have the usual favorites + some new events we’re really excited about.
1) Chocolate Tastings!!!
We’ve teamed up with the event staff at Vosges Haut Chocolates to explore the connection between taste and smell by pairing essential oil blends with various truffle flavors. Our first tasting event will happen on May 4th (right after free Intro to Aromatherapy) from 12pm-2pm and we’ll be exploring the aromas and flavors of Meso America. Forthcoming event dates are TBA so stay on the look out for more tastings.
2) FREE Intro to Natural Home Fragrance
We get sooo many questions about using essential oils for home fragrance that we decided to offer a class. As with most things Aromatherapy, answers are never simply black and white. Join us for this class if you’re fed up with synthetic home fragrance, want to learn how to use diffusers, want to know which oils are great for home fragrance, how to burn incense on charcoal and more.
3) Essential Oils and Product Bases Class
This class was created in response to the multitude of customers who come to our store and attend classes with the intention of starting an essential oil based product business. In addition to blending skills, it’s also important to have an understanding of how essential oils behave when mixed in various carriers. This affordable class is sure to provide some light bulb moments as well as save you time and money by helping you avoid common mistakes.
4) Blending Lab
Formerly called our Blending Intensive, we have changed the name and format of this event since noticing many students were attending for business purposes. The Lab is open to all levels of fragrance blenders but we do feel that students with a solid understanding of the basics will get more from the experience. Participating in the Lab allows attendees to select from a palette of almost 200 essential oils without making a large up front investment in materials. We also explore the connection between scent, mood, and memory taking a purely creative approach to the process of building a custom blend.
We have served over 500 students since starting our classes in 2010. We’re very proud of this but there are 8 million New Yorkers so we still have lots of work to do, tell your friends and share this page. We look forward to seeing you this summer!

Aromatherapy for the Home
Sunday 2/17 6:30 pm- 9:30pm
Cost $90 (all materials included)
Essential oils are great for home fragrance because they actually help to cleanse the air rather than just covering odors. They also act as an extension of your decor, creating an environment that truly reflects your personality and mood. Essential oils are powerful but don’t leave behind harsh odors like many commercial cleansers. Aromatherapy for Home will show you how to use essential oils to clean and enhance your home. Join us if you want to learn how to:
- Switch from synthetic to natural home fragrance.
- Reduce or eliminate your use of harsh commercial cleansers.
- Discover strategies for natural odor removal.
- Discover strategies for natural insect and pest control.
- Change your atmosphere and mood with fragrance.
Students will also get to make two customized essential oil blends to take home. Learn, apply your knowledge, and make a custom product all in the same day! Click Here to Register

I goofed. While creating the spring class schedule I made sure to check the dates of all the important holidays. Valentine’s Day, Easter, Mother’s Day. But there’s one very important day in America that doesn’t appear on any calender. Superbowl Sunday. This year the Superbowl is happening on Sunday February 3rd, the same night as our Top 20 Essential Oils class.
I don’t care much about football but I like Superbowl parties. Unfortunately, I don’t care about the Superbowl enough to cancel the class. No worries for those already registered.
So if the Superbowl is not a monumental event for you then consider joining us to learn about 20 of aromatherapy’s most useful oils. You can watch the commercials and Beyonce at work on Monday. Save yourself from gorging on hot wings and guacamole while learning which oils you can use to help your friends, family, and home recover from the celebration. Click here to register.
