An integral part of the training of MAAT consultants is the experience of a wide range of essential oils. This allows consultants to both have a the direct experience of their benefits and be able to recommend specific essential oils based on their own practical knowledge. 

The Power of Essential Oils is a publication written by Dr Rosie Geelvink, who pioneered the groundbreaking knowledge of Maharishi AyurVeda Aroma Therapy. It contains vital information about each essential oil and how to use them. 

Therefore, all course participants are expected to order the kit containing selected essential oils and the complete 136-page booklet, The Power of Essential Oils, if they don’t already have it. It is vital to order the kit well ahead of time to allow for its timely arrival at the participant’s address. Assignments to be done with the kit are due every so many weeks after the start of the course. 

To order the kit, please go to: The VedAroma Kit.

Course Materials

The VedAroma Kit, containing samples of 15 VedAroma essential oils, is not included in the course fee and must be ordered from VedAroma. The kit is mandatory for this course - you will need it for your practice during the course. Moreover, if you don't already have it, you will need to order the 136-page Power of Essential Oils booklet, which is essential for your practice as a consultant.

About Maharishi AyurVeda Aroma Therapy

The revival of the complete knowledge of Ayurvedic Aroma Therapy, a modality of Maharishi AyurVeda, brings us the ancient wisdom of one of the most natural systems of promoting holistic psychological and physical health and well-being.

The essential oil present in the flowers, fruits, leaves, branches, seeds, roots or rind of the plant is the ‘essence,’ ‘life force,’ or ‘soul’ of the plant. This innate intelligence awakens the inner intelligence of our mind and body.

Aroma Therapy is the fastest-growing of all complementary therapies. By drawing on its knowledge, we can unveil and tap into the secrets the perfume and cosmetics industry has guarded so well!

Essential oils can be used to balance and normalize our mental, physical and emotional health through their Dosha effect; this way, they enliven the body’s self-healing mechanism and restore life, health, and wholeness in body, mind, and soul. This is done through the revival of the complete knowledge of Maharishi AyurVeda. No other method used in aroma therapy allows for such a perfectly individualized approach to produce, as Maharishi said, “perfect health through the beautiful fragrance of flowers”.

The Department of Maharishi AyurVeda Aroma Therapy (MAAT) of the Maharishi College of Perfect Health International in Vlodrop invites anyone to learn about and enjoy this fascinating field of knowledge and take the three phases of MAAT training, starting at the beginning of each year, as follows:

MAAT Foundation Course

MAAT Consultant Training Course Phase I

MAAT Consultant Training Course Phase II

Updates on MAAT

This course will provide an opportunity for MAAT consultants to refresh their knowledge and acquire the most up-to-date information in this area. Many useful handouts have been incorporated since consultants were trained by Dr Rosie Geelvink, such as the Dosha effect of carrier oils, dilution tables (also for children), recommendations by Vaidya Vyas, new forms that make it easier to prepare for a consultation, etc. Therefore, many MAT consultants will find it helpful to take this new Phase II of the consultant training course, which will provide new tools to all trained in this field. 

The course will cover the whole range of Maharishi Aroma Therapy, from the physical to the most subtle and spiritual levels. Being familiar with the finer values and mechanics of action of the essential oils will be more fulfilling for one’s understanding. Moreover, it will help everyone to apply them more easily.
