Online Aromatherapy for Healing Arts Practitioners

This series of online aromatherapy courses offers sequential levels of aromatherapy training and is designed for massage therapists, nurses and other healing arts practitioners who wish to integrate aromatherapy into their professional practice. It is assumed that students enrolling in these aromatherapy distance learning courses have a foundation in basic anatomy and physiology. After registering for the Online / Correspondence Aromatherapy Course, students will receive an extensive workbook divided into multiple lessons. Aromatherapy students will be expected to complete each lesson in sequence, do all required reading and take a test for each lesson. This aromatherapy course is not easy and will require a sincere commitment from each student.

The Aromatherapy School offers three levels of online aromatherapy classes (I, II & III)

  • Students may choose to take exam at end of workshop. Students who pass receive an Aromatherapy Certificate of Achievement.
  • Classes are geared toward Healing Arts Practitioners (Nurses, Massage Therapists, MDs, etc.)
  • All students are expected to have a solid understanding of physiology and anatomy.
  • Levels I & II are open to non-practitioners (must have working knowledge of physiology and anatomy).
