5 Facts You May not Know about AromaTools®

Do you know these facts about AromaTools?

  1. AromaTools is a true third party and is not affiliated with any essential oil company. This allows us to produce educational resources about using essential oils for health purposes. We have your health in mind and do not benefit at all by the oils you purchase.
  2. None of AromaTools’ employees (or employers) are distributors for any essential oil company. This means we will never try to sway you or your downline (or potential downline) to join a different team or company.
  3. AromaTools leads the essential oil industry in publishing the most current scientific resource for using essential oils safely for health purposes. Since 2008, AromaTools has been dedicated to producing and publishing Modern Essentials: A Contemporary Guide to the Therapeutic Use of Essential Oils as a resource to enable you, and all essential oil users, to more easily and confidently use essential oils in your everyday life. Now on its 8th edition, Modern Essentials is currently published in 10 languages: English, Spanish, Japanese, Korean, Traditional Chinese, Simplified Chinese, Dutch, German, Slovak, and Italian. Four more languages are currently being worked on and will make an appearance soon!
  4. AromaTools ships all over the world and currently has formal distribution in 4 regions: the United States, Australia, Europe, and Canada, each with their own website and the ability to accept their own currency. We also have informal distribution in several other countries. You can find our international websites and more information here.
  5. AromaTools is celebrating its 9th birthday this week! AromaTools was founded in 2008 by a professional team that has been using and publishing materials about essential oils for over 2 decades.

Our commitment since 2008 has been to help you achieve success by providing the most reliable, specific tools and resources available for the safe and effective use of pure, therapeutic-grade essential oils.

Three Awesome Tools from Leadership

We really enjoyed the Leadership Retreat in Anaheim, CA, this year! We had so many great discussions with the leaders who came into our space. In case you missed this event, here are three great tools we have available for everyone: Social Media, Modern Essentials, and our Events Program.

SOCIAL MEDIA

Have you seen the newest videos we’ve made available on YouTube? These videos quickly highlight some of the fantastic ways essential oils can be used. Check out this example below!

These new videos are great for teaching about a single essential oil and its primary uses. Try sharing one of these videos at the beginning of your next essential oil class!

You can also find AromaTools™ on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and Instagram. On each of these social media platforms, we share essential oil recipes, craft ideas, business-building tips, class ideas, new products, coupon codes, and essential oil spotlights.

Some of the leaders indicated during the retreat that they follow us on Facebook but don’t ever get updates in their newsfeed. If this is a problem that you are having, let’s get it fixed! You don’t want to miss out on another recipe, class idea, coupon code, or contest! Follow the instructions in the following image:

MODERN ESSENTIALS

The Modern Essentials family of resources can help you in a variety of situations. We are currently working on multiple translations of the Modern Essentials book. By the end of this year, we anticipate having translations for the 6th edition Modern Essentials in the following languages: Korean, Dutch, German, Slovak, Spanish, Japanese, and Chinese (Simplified/Traditional).

There are numerous ways you can use this app to find the information you need. From the home screen, you can look up a condition or an oil by either using the search bar at the top or by tapping on the figure to the left. Just tap the figure in the area you are wanting information for, and scroll through the menu that pops up to find the appropriate condition. The “Search” button on the bottom of the screen will bring you back to this page.

If you click on the “Conditions” button on the bottom of the screen, you will be taken to the conditions page. This represents highlights from the Personal Usage Guide section of the book Modern Essentials and contains the primary (red) and secondary (orange) recommendations. Scroll through the conditions by spinning the thermometer at the top of the screen. You can easily hide or view the thermometer by tapping the arrow at the top.

By clicking on the “Oils” button on the bottom navigation bar, you will be able to look up information about a particular single oil. This section represents highlights from the Single Oils section of the book Modern Essentials. Spin the oil bottle at the top of the screen to look up a different oil. You can easily hide or view the oil bottle by tapping the arrow at the top of the screen.

The “Usage” button will take you to a series of pages providing basic information about the topical, aromatic, and internal applications of essential oils. This section contains some information provided in the Science & Application section of the Modern Essentials book. Many of these information pages in the Usage section contain pictures, charts, or videos to demonstrate the topic.

NEW! The “Blends” section allows you to look up information on the blends listed in Modern Essentials. Personalize this section by renaming the blends simply by holding your finger on the current name and typing in the name of the blend you use. The changes made here are reflected throughout all the relevant areas in the app.

Highlights of the Ceremony

We would like to thank all those who attended the groundbreaking ceremony. It was an exciting and memorable experience. We enjoyed hearing several brief speakers––including Adrianne and Evan Thomas, the project architect, the general contractor, and AromaTools™ owners Alan and Connie Higley. Each expressed their excitement for this project and what it will mean for the future of AromaTools™ and our ability to offer additional services to our customers.

After the short ceremony, the Higleys along with their family put on their hard hats and construction vests and broke ground with their golden shovels. Everyone had the opportunity to join in and turn a little dirt, even the children!

We are thrilled to have this building project under way, and we are thankful for the support of all our loyal customers who have helped to make this project and our success as a company possible.
