ONLINE Course with Marika Fleri


In this 5-hour course you will travel through the seven stages of grief, and explore how we can use aromatics as support.

Essential Oils for Menopause Masterclass

During the past couple of years, the world has gone through a shake up and a reality check, which has inevitably brought about loss, insecurities and change in circumstances and direction for many of us.

We are now going through a period of collective and individual grief as we are somehow trying to adapt to a new normal.

In this course you will learn how aromatics can be part of our toolbox and how they can accompany us through the different faces and stages of grief.

The course consists of two prerecorded sessions, and we will be hosting a meet up every two months with Marika for our third session, which is one of sharing, and is not recorded.

Upcoming Session: May 1st, 2023 at 12:00 pm EST

What you will learn


The different faces of grief


The seven stages of grief


An understanding that the grieving process is not at all linear and is highly personal


10 essential oils that can accompany us in the grief journey


How we can incorporate these aromatics and more in our day to day lives whilst navigating pain, change and growth.

“The Grief and Aromatics course, through the gentle and insightful guidance creates the container for connection and self reflection while using essential oils and the healing power of aroma. This course is an opportunity to create a deeper and integrated relationship with one’s own grief while being supported and shepherded through the process. So good!” –Veronica Auclair
