Aromatherapy School Course Descriptions - Live & Online Workshops


This series of courses is designed for nurses, massage therapists and other licensed health care practitioners and offers three sequential levels of training leading to a diploma/certification in Clinical Aromatherapy. Non-licensed persons may also take the course and on completion will earn a diploma in Practical Aromatherapy. It is assumed that students enrolling in the course have a foundation in basic anatomy and physiology.

Aromatherapy Distance Learning

This in-depth instruction by Dr. Joie Power will provide the student with a solid foundation in the practice of aromatherapy and the actions of essential oils with an emphasis on safe and effective use in clinical settings. The course combines solid scientific data, practical clinical techniques and a holistic approach that honors Body, Mind and Spirit. It covers both evidence-based and energetic approaches to the clinical practice of aromatherapy and provides basic instruction in the principles of Chinese Medicine to anchor the energetic approach. By the end of Level III, you will have learned how to effectively use 36 or more essential oils. Throughout the course, Dr. Power shares her 30 years of experience in the use of essential oils in clinical settings and uses her unique expertise in the field of neuropsychology to provide insight into the neurological basis of the olfactory effects of essential oils on mood and behavior and on Endocrine and Immune System Function. She moves beyond the basic practices of utilizing essential oils for simple physical complaints and behavioral issues and shows students how essential oils may be used as key tools in helping people recover and maintain optimal health and vitality.

The on-line course is quite a bit more indepth than the live course since it takes about 50 hours per level while the live course is 15 hours of classroom time per level.

So that we can help insure that our course will meet your needs, we ask that each prospective student complete an online applicaiton. Once approved, students will be permitted to enroll. Initally we'll be limiting our online students to 10. Once these 10 students have completed several lessons or all of Level I, 10 more will be accepted. Unlike other correspondence courses that accept unlimited enrollment, we want to insure that each student has adequate access to individual feedback and assistance from Dr. Power.

The special price for our first 10 online students will be $600. Thereafter it will be $700 per level until all three Levels are available and $800 per level after all three Levels are available online. If you register for all three levels at once, the total price will be $2100 but this option is not available until all three levels are online.

To see if you qualify for the initial group of 10, please complete the Online Application

Once the 10 students are selected, they will be able to begin work on Level I in about two weeks with Levels II & III becoming available in July/August.

Aromatherapy Diploma / Certification

Licensed Healthcare Professionals can earn a Diploma in Clinical Aromatherapy. Licensed Healthcare Professionals who successfully complete all three levels of Dr. Power's Aromatherapy Workshops will be awarded a Diploma in Clinical Aromatherapy.

Non-licensed students will receive a certificate of completion for each level completed and a diploma in Practical Aromatherapy if all 3 levels are completed.

Dr. Power will not be scheduling her live courses until all three Levels of her online course are completed. We expect that live courses will be available in early fall.

Last year's workshops were a great success - almost all seats for Levels I, II & III were filled. We had a great time - Joie loved teaching the classes and based on reviews from her students the classes were well received. Our students in 2013 had a wide range of backgrounds, including M.D.s, nurses, massage therapists, hospice workers, physical therapists and others that just wanted to learn about aromatherapy to help themselves and their family.

Students have the option to take some aromatherapy classes live and some by correspondence / distance learning.

    Cost for the live 2014 two-day workshops is $400.00 Early / $450.00 Late (less than 60 days prior to the class).
         $150.00 reserves your seat for each level.
    Register for all three Levels and save even more.
         $450.00 reserves your seat for all three classes.
    Registration won't open until the schedule is set.

All of the above workshops will be at Wyldhaven, Dr. Power's Farm near Asheville - Quite a beautiful spot in the North Carolina mountains about 30 min SE of Asheville / 20-25 min. S. of Black Mountain / 15 min. N. of Bat Cave / 40-45 min. NE of Hendersonville
