Learn to become a professionally qualified Aromatherapist. Our goal is to help students develop the necessary skills to use essential oils as part of their daily lives, professionally and personally. Our courses provide detailed information that is essential to becoming a trained Aromatherapist. We look at quality of essentials oils and what questions to ask when purchasing. The safe use of essential oils in practice is critical to Aromatherapy and is discussed in detail. You will develop consultation skills that will allow you to choose essential oils and create blends based on your client’s individual’s needs.
Classes are held in person with a creative, hands-on approach to learning. Our class size is kept small to provide the opportunity for the instructor to personally engage with all of her students and to allow students to receive individualized mentoring.
Successful completion of our Aromatherapy programs will prepare students for a broad spectrum of ways to implement essential oils into their career path. These possibilities range from using essential oils to pursue and establish a business as an Aromatherapist providing consultations and treatments, creating and selling products commercially or as a complementary addition in their current practice in the healing arts such as massage therapy, reflexology, aesthetics or nursing.
There are two levels of training available:
- This is a stand alone certification program
