Testimonials:

I took Christina’s Professional Aromatherapy Certification course and it was so much more than I had anticipated. I loved how truly holistic her course is as we went into the clinical, emotional, metaphysical, and mental uses of essential oils. I went into the course thinking I was going to learn the basics on essential oils but I came out with having learned how to be a well rounded holistic professional. Christina, having a Phd is Health Psychology, was able to give us a viewpoint on the many uses of aromatherapy in a way many people could not have. On top of that, she has been expanding her practice for many years. I felt very lucky to have such an educated teacher passing along her knowledge to me. She is very dedicated to educating and molding confident and safe practicing professionals. In addition, we learned emotional and spiritual techniques that turned out to be so useful in my practice. Mind. Soul. Self. allowed my healing practice to be what I have always wanted it to be….TRUE Holistic wellness. I highly recommend this course to anyone willing to open their minds and break old thought patterns. Once I did, I was able to gain the tools I needed to be a confident wellness practitioner. -Steph, Madison, WI

 

Prior to level 1 certification I was using essential oils for over 2 years, like a large majority of users I figured I knew the all about the world of essential oils. However I was wrong! This course taught me so much more than EO’s it introduced me to the world of botanical healing. In this series she teaches the safest and most effective ways to use aromatherapy to help not only the body but the mind and spirit as well. It also taught me how precious essential oils are and how important it is to respect them and use them responsibly. This course will show you a whole new way of thinking about health care for you and your family. Anyone who loves essential oils or has been curious about aromatherapy should definitely take this course. What I love most is not only has this course left me with a solid foundation in holistic aromatherapy but it also gives me a very valuable resource. Dr Christina is in my opinion one of the most valuable resources the aromatherapy industry has. Her teaching style is causal but very informative she is very easy to talk to and is there for me when advice is needed. If for some reason she doesn’t have the answer she will provide you with the proper resources to find the answer which I have found to be a rare trait these days. I am proud to say I have studied under and know her. Thank you Dr Christina for all of your hardwork and dedication in prepare this course please never stop doing what you do! -Drew Moss, Main Street Massage, Sioux City South Dakota

 

I began taking aromatherapy classes with Christina because I have always been interested in essential oils. I am a registered yoga teacher and have attended a few yoga classes where the instructor used oils during Savasana or diffused them in the room during class. I thought it would be fun to learn more about essential oils, so that I could use them in my classes. After the first aromatherapy class, taught by Dr. Christina Wilke-Burbach, I was hooked! I found all of the information and hands(nose)–on learning useful and profound. As the classes progressed, I began teaching a yoga class using essential oils that I blended. The response from my students was positive and they started to ask me if I sold my blends. This sparked the idea to create my own business and now, I create different essential oil blends and self-care products. I also offer aromatherapy consultations for those that are looking for an intuitive and personal approach to creating therapeutic essential oil blends. I am very thankful to Christina! Holistic Aromatherapy classes have opened doors for me both personally and professionally!
~ Namaste ~ Melissa D. Registered Yoga Instructor Oconomowoc, WI

 

Participating in the series ” Holistic Healing with Aromatherapy” was a very meaningful experience for me as an individual, and as someone who is always seeking to learn and grow as an energy practitioner. Taking this series has enhanced my life in more ways than I thought possible. Healing myself and helping others to heal themselves through essential oils was just part of it. The use of essential oils has enhanced intuitive abilities within me, opened my heart to become more compassionate, and brought forth a deeper appreciation of Gods beautiful creation- nature, and all it has to offer us. I will never look at plants, trees, flowers and grasses the same way again! Christina passes on her love of working with the essential oils to her students, making every class interesting, fun and uplifting. She is a wealth of knowledge and it is apparent to all who study with her, that she truly enjoys imparting her wisdom and watching her students evolve and grow. ~Moira D. L.P.N. Reiki practitioner, Holistic Aromatherapist. Milwaukee, WI

 

Having taken several short, as well as weekend-long, classes with Christina, her freshness of information and approach to connecting with students and teaching continues to amaze and inspire me! a whole new world has been opened to me through essential oils…i cannot thank you enough…I can’t wait till we meet again 🙂 ~Cindy M. Reiki Practitioner and Healing Touch Practitioner Rochester, MN

 

Christina Wilke-Burbach is a fabulously gifted teacher! Her aromatherapy class was informative and fun! A great learning experience! I highly recommend this class to anyone who is interested in learning the health benefits of aromatherapy! I took away experience that will last me a lifetime!~ Connie T. CNA, RMT, Juneau, WI

 

I highly recommend the Aromatherapy Certification to anyone who is searching for a small class size, personal attention, lots of resources, learning opportunities in and out of the classroom, a comprehensive course curriculum, and having a very knowledgeable instructor who is dedicated to making sure you have fun and succeed. I always anticipated each class; I loved the thought-provoking class discussions, class activities, and of course learning about the healing properties of essential oils! Aromatherapy is without a doubt a staple in my business and personal life. Thank you Christina! ~Robyn P. LMT, Milwaukee, WI.

 

Thank you Mary Laven, for bringing Christina Wilke-Burbach, PhD, to Rochester, MN! Having the classes at your Wind Over Fire Healing Arts Center was a delight! Because these classes delve into so much information about Essential Oils, I am now better able to discern which products truly affect me physically and why—ultimately I can avoid contact with them. Experiencing and using Essential Oils is a process of looking forward, learning more, and then being able to incorporate the oils into my own Integrated Health Practices. ~Norrie L. MacIlraith, RN, BSN, MS, CNS, TH, HTP. Rochester, MN

 

Anyone interested in learning how to use essential oils safely and responsibly should seriously consider learning from Christina Wilke-Burbach. I was impressed with her expertise and practical approach to using essential oils. She presents the material in a professional yet informal way that allows everyone to share, ask questions and receive hands on experience. I know there are many books and materials available for those who want to know more about using oils, however, for those who want to use essential oils on themselves, friends, or family or to incorporate the use of aroma therapy with other alternative modalities, I highly recommend you take Christina’s classes. Not only will you feel more comfortable blending and using essential oils, but you will come away from the classes realizing just how much more there is to learn. I found myself anxious to learn more from Christina. She has a wonderful sense of humor and makes learning fun. I admire her enthusiasm and appreciate the great amount of time and research she put into the written materials, including valuable and reliable resources for further reading and references. The Level I classes were quite an eye opener for me and I am extremely honored to have had the opportunity to learn from Christina. She is an exceptional woman who whollistically lives and breathes what she teaches. ~Pamela B. Reiki Master Teacher, Iowa

 

“Explore the ancient mystical glimmering of nature and science. Healing with Essential Oils is a great resource of a world forgotten. But our spirit has not, thus enters educator and Light worker, Dr. Christina Wilke-Burbach, who is a scholar, teacher and a practioner of clinical and intuitive Aromatherapy, has created a thoughtful and honest course(s) for the sole purpose of changing lifestyles, beliefs and old habits into methods of facilitated healing. My discovery of holistic healing has begun with the art and science of caring for the whole person – body, mind and spirit, through Aromatherapy certification 101-104. Western medicine is embracing this value of Palliative Care, that is respecting the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of the patient. These medicines of the earth are not only for the medical community, but are a timeless apothecary for our families and community. Christina is professional in every aspect of instruction. Her heart and motivation to build a better tomorrow is with warm roots and refreshing energy. Thank you Christina for passing on the sciences of Herbology and Aromatherapy. ~Laura M Hartert, Mayo Hospital, Rochester, MN

 

Regarding Level 1 and Level 2 Aromatherapy with Christina Wilke-Burbach, Ph.D.… After taking both of the Healing with Aromatherapy Intensives Levels 1 and 2, I am impressed with the depth of knowledge that Christina has regarding these magnificent gifts of nature known as essential oils. It is unfortunate that they are not better understood for their medicinal properties, and are confused with perfumery and scented candles. The oils are the essential life-force of each of the plants and as such, have the medicinal properties of each plant. It is beyond aromatherapy into botanical therapy! These classes are not just about dispensing oils to work on something symptomatic in an individual’s body, but learning about the organic chemistry or the chemical composition of the oils, their uses and effect on the body. We covered safety precautions based on science and chemical reactions, and science-based ethical standards of practice. And considering all these factors, how these oils can work with an individual holistically by taking into consideration ALL that is going on with each person. It is a true form of individualized treatment! What you will learn in these classes far exceed the National Association for Holistic Aromatherapy (NAHA) requirements. “Her course work is amazing and thorough and is for every healing practitioner serious about working in a holistic way with clients and patients” ~Mary Laven, Executive Director of Wind over Fire Healing Arts Center, Rochester, MN.

 

I have been blown away by the series 1 and 2 classes for Clinical Aromatherapy Certification. Never before have I been so excited about learning. Christina is an amazing teacher who inspires us all to be our best selves. The class was very in depth and informative, yet fun and light. Thank you so much Christina. ~Ann Fothergill, Registered Dental Hygienist, Milwaukee, WI

 

I became interested in Essential Oils and read so much different types of advice on using them. The more I read the more confusing things became. I began searching for some type of class to learn safety and they always seamed to lead to someone selling a mass marketing product. I really wanted to learn from someone not pushing anything which led me to Christina. I signed up for level one… I have to say the knowledge I gained from her is invaluable.. Her classes were well planned and fun! I highly recommend learning from someone with a passion for safety and sharing her vast knowledge with her students.~Nancy Yaeger, Wisconsin
