Introduction to Aroma Freedom

Learn the theory and history behind Aroma Freedom.  See a sample session so you know how the process flows.  Get oriented to the course.

Active Listening, Rapport, and Presence

Develop key client skills through learning how to listen, develop meaning, maintain rapport, and have a strong yet open presence to facilitate the best outcomes.


Goal Setting: SMART Goals and Beyond

A session is only as good as the goal it starts with.  Learn several goal setting strategies and gain an ability to discern which types of goals are best for specific situations.

Heart Centering, Body Awareness, and Aroma Reset

Learn a special heart centering technique to access your true desires, understand how body awareness helps with emotional awareness, and learn the 1-minute Aroma Reset Technique.

The Aroma Boost Technique

Aroma Boost is the newest addition to the Aroma Freedom Arsenal.  It combines Aroma Reset with specially formulated enhanced affirmations to create an irresistible momentum towards reaching your goals with speed and ease.

The Memory Resolution Technique (TMRT)

The first Aroma Freedom Technique to be developed, TMRT allows you to release the energy from a negative memory or image.  Learn how and when to use this process, and experience firsthand how effective it can be for yourself and others.


Hybrid AFT/TMRT Sessions

Once you have learned AFT and TMRT, we now show you how to shift seamlessly between the two techniques.  This allows you to flow with the client's experience in the moment and release the negative memory traces more effectively and deeply.

Feelings vs. Judgments

The critical distinction of feelings vs.judgments is explored as it helps us to keep the client centered in their feeling state rather than their mental state.  This allows the memory complexes to be accessed and transformed.



Aroma Freedom for Groups, Children, and Special Populations

Aroma Freedom can be used very effectively in group as well as individual formats, with children, and with special groups.  Learn how to use the Aroma Freedom in all of these scenarios for maximum flexibility.



The Business of Aroma Freedom

Once you have mastered the techniques, it is time to create a business or practice to bring Aroma Freedom to others.  This topic focuses on the basics of Aroma Freedom Practice as well as clearing away negative thoughts about your business.

Bringing Aroma Freedom to the World

As you close out your certification journey, we focus on your unique vision for bringing Aroma Freedom into the world.  This is about expanding your vision, dreaming big, and creating a future that is exciting to create.

I am so happy and amazed with the Aroma Freedom Technique. As soon as I experienced it, I knew it was something I was being led to do, so I embarked on the very first certification training that was offered. I am doing AFT sessions with anyone on my Young Living team that is willing, and we are seeing some amazing shifts happening for people. I am also using it personally, for many areas of my life, and love how easy it is to find and release blocks that have been holding me back for years. Thank you, Dr. Benjamin Perkus, for developing this powerful tool and giving us the opportunity to share it with the world at large - the world will be a better place when more and more people get on board the Aroma Freedom Train!

I am in love with the Aroma Freedom certification program. After my first experience with AFT I was amazed at the effectiveness and simplicity of beginning the work of removing emotional blocks that paralyze my everyday living. I knew as soon as the certification program was offered I had to do it to share and help others through their own journeys. I have not been disappointed. I learn more and more with each week and get to see first-hand through leading others through the Aroma Freedom process the benefits and shifts. I have gone through a number of classes and programs on emotional release and this technique by far as been the most effective for myself and those I have had the privilege of walking through their own AFT sessions.

Aroma Yoga Founder and YL Platinum

When I first experienced Aroma Freedom I noticed profound shifts in my attitude and my emotional states of being that lasted for days.  The greatest benefit of this course is that we, as students are receiving sessions as we learn how to facilitate. In this last 8 weeks I have reignited my passion for the all things I love to do! I feel happier, clearer, focused and I am in action towards my personal and business goals in a balanced and sustainable way.I am excited to share Aroma Freedom Technique inside of my Aroma Yoga® and Polarity Therapy trainings.  I love how Dr. Perkus put this training together, and it’s been an honor and a pleasure to learn from him. I look forward to more!

The benefits that I have seen with this Aroma Freedom Technique  Certification class have been amazing!  I have seen such an incredible difference in my practice.  Knowing why specific oils are used, and knowing why specific words are used have been powerful.  Watching my clients break-through negative thought patterns has been very rewarding.

When I first heard about Aroma Freedom Technique I immediately had an uplifting sensation within me. I felt a knowing that this was what I was to do to help myself, family and anyone who is willing to be open that they have blocks, beliefs or memories that stop them from being who they came here to be. As I go through the certification course and practice AFT on family, friends and myself I am stunned at how quickly and completely the blocks are removed, (we’re talking minutes not months or years!) I find that what most of us do is to use a band-aid to cover the problem/issue/block where as AFT gets to the root. AFT is magical in my world and I look forward to sharing it with anyone who chooses to live a life of joy and happiness.

Dr. Perkus has brought an immense gift - Aroma Freedom Technique- into awareness and application for humankind. He grounds his presentations with annotated scientific research, paired with his own substantial experience and data collection. 


I have used AFT multiple times each week with clients in my holistically oriented psychotherapy practice since becoming certified as an AFT practitioner two years ago. It’s my favorite tool and my clients love it. My right brain instincts and experience immediately validated the process. Dr. Perkus’ conscientious, continuously expanding research and discoveries further round out the left brain balance. It is a profound blessing and I am eternally grateful.
