Science meets alchemy in every aromatherapy course

Our Aromatherapy Courses are designed for Healthcare Professionals as well as those with a strong interest in aromatherapy.

"Aromatherapy is an art as well as an evidence-based science and the most skillful practitioners understand both the physiological and energetic actions of essential oils. My goal as a teacher is to blend science and alchemy in a seamless model for healing."

Whether you're an individual who wants to develop skills for using essential oils for self-care, or a licensed healthcare provider seeking a professional level of expertise, the Aromatherapy School has courses tailored to your needs.

Lavender Essential Oil Since the Aromatherapy School has merged with the Highlands School of Natural Healing, our new on-line courses are available to both licensed healthcare professionals who can register for the Clinical Aromatherapy Certification program and to individueals who have a strong interest in aromatherapy and the safe use of essential oils:

Live classes will begin with our two day (15 hour) workshop, Creating Essential Oil Blends for Clinical Use. (Prior experience with aromatherapy required for this workshop)

In this hands-on workshop, Dr. Power will present a method for selecting essential oils based on client history and targeted clinical goals. This is the same method used by herbalists to create synergistic herbal combinations to address specific health issues. Students at the workshop will have access to an extensive selection of essential oils to create their own blends under expert guidance. This is one of our most popular workshops and since enrollment is limited early registration is suggested.

Students who enroll for this class are expected to have a working knowledge of aromatherapy and prior experience in the use of essential oils.
