About IEWS


The Institute of Energy Wellness Studies was established in 2005 to meet the growing need in the use of therapeutic Grade oils as used in the French system along with other energy system disciplines.


The school initiated its opening as a Registered Federally & Private Education Institution. It was:


  • Acknowledged as the first school to offer the three systems (French, British & German) in the use of essential oils called 'integrated aromatic sciences' in North America

  • Registered with the Canadian Examining Board of Health Practitioners

  • IEWS was granted the first official affiliation with the new essential oil natural health clinic in Ecuador by Dr. D. Gary Young called NOVA VITA Clinic Institute of Natural Medicine, Guayaquil, Ecuador


            Dr. D. Gary Young gave IEWS a magnificent endorsement about their Aromatic Program at one of the Health Expos in Toronto, April 1-2, 2006

“ Folks save your money……I want to commend  these folks – Sabina and Geoff – (Director and Co-Director of the school) for what they have created and for what they are doing in North America, period! That is for putting together the first accredited school program that will be teaching aromatic practitioners and giving you a certificate that was initiated and endorsed  by your Federal (Canadian) government,  (previously registered as a private recognized education institution by Human Resources and Social Development Canada)

 And they are teaching Gary’s method. Techniques that I have taught them will be the techniques taught in their school ….I thank the Directors of the School for the honor (of being the senior advisor for their school) to participate in a small way for this school.

            Sabina has a desire to do it the right way. That is what she has done…..It’s the First federally Accredited aromatherapy program – teaching all 3 systems – French, British and German that has been taught by Gary Young over 15 years) except we’re not calling it that – we’re calling it aromatic sciences – in North America”.





















The Integrated Aromatic Sciences Course Program was designed primarily by Dr. Sabina DeVita Ed.D. . It was based on the teaching and philosophies of D. Gary Young. Aspects of this program are similar to the Aromatherapy Courses that are presently available but with some major differences in application and philosophy.

In collaboration with previous faculty members, in the early days of IEWS development, Dr. David Stewart and Dr. Carolyn De Marco respectively, a most comprehensive course program was born.

The use of essential oils dates back as one of the oldest and most powerful therapies. Today it is being recognized for its therapeutic advantages as well as its efficacy world-wide.

The IEWS curriculum includes basic chemistry of essential oils, basic anatomy & physiology, application of essential oils, (inclusive of Vita-Flex and raindrop Techniques), spiritual healing, and Egyptian emotional clearing. The Advanced covers facial aesthetic applications, and women’s/men's health issues.

The online program is designated to teach the student a Basic – 350 hour course which offers the Basic Diploma Certificate.

The advanced 450 hour course in aromatic sciences is not available at this time. It will be offered later.



The IEWS offers a distinct aromatic program unlike any other in North America. Most or perhaps all the aromatic schools in North America are based on the British system of application of essential oils. This has become the world standard for the use of Aromatherapy. It primarily teaches the use of essential oils through massage or topical uses only. The British system also teaches the importance of diluting the oils with carrier oils.

Instead, IEWS primarily teaches the French system in the application of essential oils. This includes two major procedures unlike the British system:

  1. The oral application of essential oils and

  2. The direct topical use of the oils without carrier oils. Obviously this can only be achieved with organic, therapeutic grade *AFNOR standard essential oils and knowledge of application.

*AFNOR – IEWS has chosen oils that meet the international standards for therapeutic – grade essential oils: there are generally two standards that are recognized at a world level & referred to most often: ISO and AFNOR.


ISO – International Standards Organization

AFNOR – Association French Normalization Organization Regulation


The AFNOR standards state the percentage of certain chemical constituents that must be present for an essential oil to be considered therapeutic grade. In order to gain the AFNOR stamp approval, the oils must be tested by the French laboratories. A third standard considered to be the “gold standard” now for essential oils is the EC – European Community – Standard.


3. IEWS has chosen a top quality company with impeccable standards in order to adhere to the internal and neat application of essential oils. This company is world recognized for its therapeutic AFNOR and EC standards, hence our choice to use Young Living essential oils.


IEWS also incorporates the British, French and the German systems hence the word “Integrated” in its title “Integrated Aromatic Sciences”.
