What is CARE International?
The Center for Aromatherapy Research and Education, Inc. (CARE) is a nonsecular organization dedicated to assembling research and disseminating information on the healing properties and the safe, effective, therapeutic application of essential oils. This is accomplished by the sponsorship of seminars, hands-on workshops, and distribution of various books, CDs, DVDs, and videos available through CARE's website: www.raindroptraining.com
Level 1 of CARE's training is the Certified CARE Instructor (CCI) Program that requires 164 hours of training, study, and practice to complete. The focus of Level I is to teach Raindrop Technique and associated skills. This is accomplished by a series of Level I classes (25 hours) that include Healing Oils of the Bible, Applied VitaFlex, Raindrop Technique, Emotional Release, and Essential Oil Chemistry - organized around the practice of Raindrop. These have been offered as individual classes and in 2, 3, and 4 day seminars throughout the US and Canada, as well as in Australia, Mexicao, Italy, Austria, Romania, Malaysia, Iceland, Bahrain, Lebanon, Philippines, Singapore and Great Britian.
Class notes are available in Spanish and Polish. More than 150 CARE Programs are offered annually. After the 25 hours of CARE classes, completion of the program to become a CCI requires another 139 ours, including practice, teaching, testing, and study - some in class and some outside of class. Once one becomes a CCI, they are able to teach the "basic set" of Raindrop Technique, VitaFlex, and Healing Oils of the Bible.
After completing Level I courses: CARE has Advanced Chemistry, Advanced Emotional Release, and the SCCI (Supervising Certified CARE Instructor) courses to then become an Fully Certified CARE Instructor (FCCI) if one has the desire to increase their teaching skills set.
It is CARE's vision that some day proper therapeutic application of essential oils will become common household knowledge with Vitaflex and Raindrop technique becoming skills practiced by parents, spouses, friends, and professionals throughout the world.

"Karen's style of teaching encompasses facts, fun and plenty of hands-on. She brings extensive knowledge of therapeutic grade essential oils, skill, and a sense of humor to the table. She does a great job of compressing a lot of information in a small amount of time. The C.A.R.E. training is well worth the investment and getting continuing ed credits adds amazing value!
