Certified CARE Instructors (CCI) in good standing may apply for Board Certified Raindrop Specialist (BCRS) certification. Scope of Practice for the BCRS is as follows:
- Practice and teaching of Raindrop Technique
- Practice and teaching of Vitaflex Technique
- Anointing and teaching of the oils of scripture
- Teaching the chemistry and science of essential oils
- Practice and teaching of emotional releasing with essential oils
To practice raindrop legally as a CRTS or BCRS without any other healthcare related license, you must also be a Licensed Spiritual Healer (LSH) under the auspices of the Alliance of Christian Healers Licensing Board (ACHLB). You may apply for being both a CRTS and LSH or BCRS and LSH on the same form, submitting the fee for both at the same time. Those holding certificates as a CRTS or BCRS and a license as an LSH may practice raindrop legally in all 50 states and all 10 provinces of Canada. You are also eligible for liability insurance. See the current CCI Handbook for complete details.
Those who teach or practice Raindrop and/or Vitaflex as a CRTS/LSH or BCRS/LSH must agree to use only Young Living essential oils as mentioned on the application form.
You may download an application through the links below or on the NTCB website.
CRTS and BCRS are each good for three years and renewal is contingent upon accumulating 60 CEUs (continuing education units). CRTS and BCRS certificates are issued immediately upon application. Upon application for LSH, you must complete either the “Healer Coach Course” at https://spiritualhealercoach.net or the Aromatherapy for Spiritual Healers Course” accessible through www.ntcbcertifications.org
These are taught via teleconference and are usually offered four times a year. Instructors for these classes will notify NTCB when you complete one of them. NTCB will then authorize the issuance of your LSH license, the fee for which you will have already submitted with your CRTS or BCRS application. LSH is reissued annually and you will be notified by ACHLB when due. Completing either of these two courses also suffices to fulfill the 60 hours continuing education for CRTS or BCRS.
