Summer aromatherapy classes are held in a lovely house on four acres of beautiful rural land just 15 minutes from downtown Ithaca. This is truly an opportunity to connect with nature’s gifts while learning in a quiet environment.
This summer, we’re offering all of the Scholar’s Program classes, totaling over 400 hours of training, taken over four months. These classes can be taken over one summer, or divided over several summers. Once the 400 hours are completed, you receive the Scholar’s Program certificate and are eligible to apply for the clinical level membership through the Alliance of International Aromatherapists.
