Aromatherapy Certification Program Online
Enroll: $1,700 | Enroll
The ACP online is most impressive! The application of the oils was all new to me and I found it very easy to learn and understand the concepts. I was very proud of my first lip balm! The videos made the course personal and interactive and made understanding the concepts much easier. The balance between the chemistry and the practical aspects have provided me with a well rounded platform. Over 1 year later, I still refer back to the information provided in the course. The course put me in contact with other people all over the world to share information and ideas.
The Online 235 hour ACP (Aromatherapy Certification Program) allows students to experience an education with the Aromahead Institute through our exclusive digital curriculum. Through the online textbook and references, access to exclusive videos, case study assignments, and dozens of blending activities, students become professionally qualified in the therapeutic uses of essential oils.
The Aromatherapy Certification is approved by The National Association for Holistic Aromatherapy (NAHA), and the Alliance of International Aromatherapists (AIA), both leading governing bodies for national educational standards for aromatherapists. Certification also qualifies you to sit for the Aromatherapy Registration Council exam (ARC).
Our curriculum includes activities and videos, as well as meticulously crafted directions for case studies that will enhance your experience and intuition as an aromatherapist. We will cover a variety of topics relating to aromatherapy, essential oils, science and business:
Essential Oil Study
Anatomy and Physiology

Many of our students go on to:

Graduates of this online course have gone on to create essential oil retail businesses, web retail stores, therapeutic product lines and holistic and alternative medicine consultation services.
This is an independent, self-study program. If question arise while you are learning, we have an online forum established for asking questions. Your question will be answered by both Andrea Butje and Aromahead Institute graduates.
