Thinking of holding a virtual essential oil class? It’s a great idea, and we love getting together with friends online. Virtual classes bring people from all over the country, and sometimes the world, together in the coolest, simplest way. How lucky are we to have the means to connect with each other from the comfort of our couches!
Making a virtual class effective can take a little practice and creativity, but even the most-experienced class holders can use tips and timesavers every now and again! That’s why the Class in a Box collection was created—to make classes easier, more tangible, and even more successful. Utilizing this resource virtually looks a little different, but it can be just as (if not more) effective. It just takes a little planning, but we’ve done some of that for you by putting together this customizable virtual Class in a Box class outline. Let’s get started!
Organize a Facebook Live, Zoom call, or other online meeting and select your attendees. Invite your friends by group text message, personal text, phone call, or mailed invitation cards. The options are endless—as long as they know when and how to join, invite them however you’d like! Many Wellness Advocates see the most success by using personal invitations, by either phone or text.

The most successful classes are engaging and entertaining. Let loose and keep the class interactive! Here are a few ideas for how to do this virtually:
These are just a few ideas to get you started. As you keep holding these virtual classes and gather tips and tricks from other Wellness Advocates, you’ll find the activities that perfectly fit you and your strengths!
Virtual classes don’t have to be boring, and they don’t have to be a lesser version of an in-person class. Gathering your friends virtually is an easy, no pressure way to hold an effective essential oil class with your Class in a Box collection that will help you continuously build your business.
