Welcome to the Aromantic Course Zone
Learn to make bespoke natural cosmetics, toiletries and beauty products with our flexible 1-day training modules!
A personal invitation from natural skin care expert Kolbjorn Borseth:
Welcome to the Aromantic Course Zone, where we have made it easier than ever for you to find the course that is perfect for your needs and to book your place online. Whether you are a total beginner or a seasoned professional I and other industry experts have designed a range of courses covering the different aspects of natural skin care - from treating specific skin or hair conditions and types to making your own natural cosmetic, beauty and aromatherapy products; either professionally or purely for fun as a hobby.
Over the years that I have been running these courses hundreds of people have benefited from the knowledge and experience that I am delighted to share with all of my course participants. Teaching is my passion and it is my personal commitment to empower as many people as possible to be able to make and use natural, non-toxic and affordable skin care products, either for themselves or for their own clients.
Mike started teaching many Aromantic's Courses, including our College Courses, soon after he first studied with me about 15 years ago. He also offers consultations via the Aromantic consultancy service.
I continue to be very involved in the design of the course materials and running of the courses, in the Autumn of 2010 I handed over the bulk of the actual course teaching to Mike, who brings his considerable knowledge and positive energy to every course. Course students love Mike's passion for what he is doing and appreciate the depth of his knowledge, not only in many aspects of the natural health field but in the Aromantic way of making products. Mike has a wealth of experience in the complementary therapies; he is a practising Naturopath trained in Clinical Aromatherapy and has continued to add to his therapies over the years with reflexology, iridology, colonic hydrotherapy, various forms of massage and ozone therapy. Aromatherapy has always been, and still is, his first passion.
I am very proud to have Mike on the Aromantic teaching team.
"I always enjoyed Kolbjorn running the courses - he was always so generous with his time and knowledge, so wasn't so sure about Mike taking over from him but I needn't have worried as Mike is a delightful teacher, always thinking about students and what their special interests are. He makes the day sail by with his bouncy personality and his obvious in-depth knowledge about natural health in general and passion for what he is doing makes it a joy to have him as a teacher."
On our Courses you will learn to make your own bespoke, natural, safe, cruelty-free, high quality and professional natural skin and hair care products, toiletries and cosmetics. These are just some of the courses to give you an idea of what types of products you'll make. We have other courses, please see 'Full Info' on individual course listings for in-depth information.
Aromantic Courses are a great way to quickly learn how to make products to:
Sell to your therapy or salon clients
If you're an aromatherapist, beautician, salon owner or any other therapist working in the field of complementary therapy, you can tailor-make natural cosmetics specific to your clients' specific needs/skin types and conditions and prescribe and sell to them directly. This add-on service is an excellent way to enhance your practice and to support your clients.
Use at home - for your family and friends
You may wish to be a 'homecrafter' or hobbyist who loves to make natural skin, hair and beauty care products for yourself, your family and friends. For a lot of Aromantic hobbyists, it's very important to them that they are in control of what they and their families put on their skin and hair. You, or one of your family members, may have a skin type or condition that you feel you need to take control of by making your own skin, hair and body care products.
Start or expand a Business
You may be starting from scratch or expanding your business or you may be a hobbyist or therapist who previously sold only to family and friends or therapy clients but now you want to sell to the public. Selling the professional, natural skin, hair and body care products that you have made can be very rewarding, fun and creative as many of my course participants and customers can attest to!
"I attended courses at Aromantic, Fulham, London on 15/16/17 April 2011. I would like to say a BIG Thank You for all the help I received from Aromantic. It started with coming across your website while surfing the internet, to being amazed by the things you teach, which made me want to do those courses as soon as I could. I must admit that right from my 1st email to inquire details on the know-abouts, to getting there, you guys have been extremely reciprocative & supportive. I'm very thankful to Mr. Mike Harmon for his very informative sessions, Mr. Ben Borseth for making it easier for us, your entire team at Aromantic for my paperwork/formalities, and of course, Mr. Kolbjorn Borseth for replying to my very 1st email which was full of queries! My experience during the course was AWESOME! I can't wait to start my own line of skin & hair products! I highly appreciate your approach!" Dr. Roma Thadani, India
From the very first day I attended a course run by him in London a couple of years ago now - it literally changed the way I look at natural products. I make ALL my own creams, body butters - soap bombs - you name it! as a direct result of my contact with Aromantic. Jenny Oram-Weaver
As natural skin care leaders Aromantic offer courses that are flexible 1-day post-graduate training modules to beginners and professionals alike. If you are a qualified complementary or beauty therapist, Aromantic's short courses are an ideal way for you to expand your personal and therapeutic knowledge base, which will enhance your CV, making you more employable and opening up new opportunities. Aromantic, as well as our course designers and facilitators, Kolbjorn Borseth and Mike Harmon are highly regarded globally and we have customers from all over the world attending our courses. Whilst you are of course already qualified in your field to work to industry standards, our flexible training modules will give you a competitive edge.
We teach you how to make high quality professional natural products and then how to tailor-make them for you or your client's unique therapeutic needs
Another aspect of the uniqueness of the Aromantic approach to teaching is that we teach students to make professional-grade natural cosmetics, toiletries and beauty products and then we teach them to tailor-make the recipes by replacing or altering the amount of ingredients used in order to cater for individual therapeutic needs e.g. skin colour, type or condition.
We are on the forefront of natural and organic skin care innovation
We always search for innovative new natural and organic ingredients and make them accessible to our customers in quantities that they can afford. Our recipes only use ingredients that are the best on the market at the time as well as being the most effective for making professional products. This can be a challenge to find that right balance, but it is a challenge that we love! Kolbjorn has designed, developed and tested many thousands of recipes over the years and understands how the ingredients behave under different conditions and in different combinations.
The products made from Aromantic's recipes by our customers, students and Aromantic itself have effectively treated thousands of people suffering from serious skin conditions ranging from acne to eczema, psoriasis, skin scarring and blemishes to skin aging and hair loss.
Not just course providers, not just raw material suppliers
We are also unique in the sense that we help new customers and students through a whole cycle of knowledge sharing (in many different ways) as well as providing the raw materials and ingredients to make use of that new knowledge. We are not just course providers; neither are we simply providers of ingredients or raw materials.
We are passionate about helping you to understand the many benefits of using safe, natural, tailor-made skin care products and to empower you with the secrets that the cosmetic industry don't want you to know.
Aromantic Courses are affordable!
We offer cosmetic insider knowledge at very affordable prices. We are extremely committed to making Aromantic Courses as accessible and affordable as possible to all those who are interested in attending and I'm sure you will agree that the course fees are extremely low. In addition, we offer generous discounts to students, registered unemployed people and UK pensioners receiving Pension Credit, as well as substantial savings with our multi-booking discounts if you book more than one course in a single transaction. We even have extra discounts for products bought on course days.
"I attended a course given by Kolbjorn Borseth in May this year to learn how to make cosmetics, using nature- and people-friendly raw materials. My level of enjoyment of my first class and the enthusiasm that pours out of Kolbjorn's every pore led me to take a further six courses. Not only can I make cosmetics but am in the process of starting my own business doing just this. Kolbjorn has inspired me to change my career - owning my own small business as well as training to become an aromatherapist. Kolbjorn's excellent recipes have helped my family members with eczema so I, like Kolbjorn, believe EVERY inch in what I produce and sell. I have witnessed others in his classes go from dabbling in MYO cosmetics part-time' to 'owning their own cosmetic empires'." Lynne
Aromantic courses are carefully designed to balance theory with the hands-on experience of making your own products. We explain the important principles and theory underpinning each topic and provide each student with comprehensive fact-sheets and recipes as hand-outs during the courses. We demonstrate the precise technique required for making each product before each student has the opportunity to try for themselves.
At the end of each course students are able to take home the products that they have made, as well as all the recipes and information required to continue making these products at home, in their businesses or in their therapeutic practices. Participants on Aromantic courses gain exclusive knowledge and learn many of the 'insider-secrets' of the natural skin-care industry.
There are scheduled sessions where we give you the opportunity to ask any questions that you may have about making skin care products or treating specific skin conditions and we always strive to give one-to-one support during the courses wherever possible.
Included in the Course Fees are:
All the raw materials, containers and equipment you will need on the day.
Recipes with instructions
