“I am learning so much! I am really reading about this most recent assignment and exploring why certain oils are contraindicated for various conditions. The chemistry fascinates me. I am loving my learning and appreciate the way the course is designed to expand this process.” Lisa P., HI


The Certificate in Professional Aromatherapy course is divided into ten modules with  a series of assessment questions at the end of each module. Assessment questions may include reading assignments, completion of an essay, a practical project, or something similar. These types of assignments are at high school/college level and are a lot more comprehensive than the assessments found in the Certificate in Holistic Aromatherapy course. Module 10 contains the final assessment required in order to receive your certificate of completion to meet NAHA level 1 and level 2 (combined) aromatherapy education standards.

This course covers everything you could want to know about aromatherapy from learning the history of essential oils to making your own professional products. Sharon is a patient teacher who is wonderfully supportive and generous in sharing her expertise as you work at your own pace through the program. An added bonus is the Facebook group that goes along with the program so you always feel supported by fellow students and Sharon.” Raquel L., VT
