What You Will Learn
Using healing botanicals to create your own aromatic products that uplift your spirit, clear your mind, and purify your body. Aromatic Lifestyle is a seven-module home video course that teaches you to create your own aromatic products based on time-tested traditions.
JK DeLapp, a licensed acupuncturist with extensive training in Chinese Medicine, will be your guide through this learning journey. His passion is the history of aromatic products and helping people eliminate the unnecessary toxic burden of synthetic, chemical aromatics.
JK will guide you step-by-step in how to create great-smelling, chemical-free products at home with recipes that are so simple, you can make them in just a few minutes — minus all the harmful chemicals that are found in most commercial aromatic products.
Discover the fun of making your own products. You’ll learn which ingredients support skin health and promote a healthy endocrine system, and how to choose materials that will result in what professional perfumers call a "full-spectrum" fragrance. JK will introduce you to the basics of the fragrance pyramid so that you can experiment with different recipes and formulations to find your signature scent.
This comprehensive course will enable you to take your power back, rid yourself of toxic aromatic products, and free you to live an all-natural aromatic lifestyle.
While the therapeutic and health-promoting properties of natural aromatics are well documented, few people understand what volatility means and how it affects the longevity, scent, and performance of their product:
What is the difference between a Top, Heart, or Base Note – and which materials provide which?
What do you need to know about "facets" and the fragrance pyramid in order to compose a balanced and long-lasting fragrance?

Toxic, synthetic fragrance is everywhere. So how can we decrease our exposure to it?
