CARE: Center for Aromatherapy Research and Education

CARE - Center for Aromatherapy Research and Education was founded in 2001 by Dr David and Lee Stewart. This organization is dedicated to assembling research and disseminating information on the healing properties and the safe effective therapeutic application of essential oils.  CARE's vision is that the proper therapeutic application of essential oils will become common household knowledge with VitaFlex and Raindrop techniques used by families and professionals around the world.  


Anyone may take the CARE classes and purchase the related books and DVDs.  CARE only uses Young Living Essential Oils to ensure the quality of the oils used in the Raindrop technique.  You may join Young Living to buy oils wholesale at


The class topics include:


Vitaflex - a Tibetan form of reflexology applied to the body’s acupressure points using the piezoelectric jump start to restore blocked nerve and energy pathways.  This assists the body’s affected organ, area, or system to return to homeostasis. Essential oils enhance this technique due to their molecular electrical nature and movement along nerve and energy pathways. It aids digestion, helps mental alertness, improves circulation, opens lymph and respiratory systems, clears the auditory canal, and rebalances the spinal column.  Pre-requisite to Raindrop class. (This is a 4 hr. class; 4 CEUs...limit 10)

Raindrop Technique - a light touch therapy focusing on the feet (spinal points) and back/neck using 9 Essential Oil singles and blends. It can relieve stress, reduce inflammation, improve circulation, prevent bacterial and viral causes of spinal misalignments, reduce pain, improve immune function, and release pent-up negative emotions.  Pre-requisite to Vibrational Raindrop. (This is an 8-hour session, with hands-on learning and experience; 8 CEUs...limit 10)


Healing Oils of the Bible - addresses the essential oils spoken of in the Bible, how they were used then, how they are used now, and what chemical or healing properties are of particular interest in each of them. You experience each one in the 12 Oils of Ancient Scripture more. (This is a 2 hr. class; 2 class limit)


Chemistry of Essential Oils - teaches the make-up of essential oils and how the molecular structure, chemical components, and other properties allow a therapeutic grade essential oil to be effective in helping the body heal itself. A great class presented in a simple, easy to follow format. (This is a 6 hr. class, divided into two sessions; 6 class limit)

Emotional Release - shows how essential oils can be used to enhance an emotional release of pent-up, buried, and unwanted negative feelings. Personal application is included. It is done with great care and sensitivity for the person who volunteers as our demo. (This is a 5 hr. class; 5 class limit)
