Howdy Aromaheads!

Do you enjoy the wondrous scents of nature? Do you desire to elevate your well-being using essential oils? Well, you are headed in the right place! My name is John Archievald Gotera, and I go by the nickname, Archie. Through a weave of events, I immersed myself into the world of holistic health trying to discover various methods to achieve optimal health and wellness. Early 2016, I became interested in aromatherapy and pursued my goal to become a certified aromatherapist. 235 hours of studying the course and 25 case studies later, I earned my credential as a certified aromatherapist under Aromahead Institute. Aromahead Institute is approved by The National Association for Holistic Aromatherapy (NAHA) and the Alliance of International Aromatherapist (AIA) both of which are among the leading governing bodies for educational standards for Aromatherapist. So cool! Right? Join me on this journey where we follow our hearts and noses, where you can call yourself a true Aromahead.

With much love and gratitude,
