Aromahead Graduate

My experience with the Aromatherapy Certification Program was amazing and love for Aromahead is deep!  I took a very slow approach and enjoyed the unfolding of layers of insight and information.  My (surprisingly) favorite part was the research paper on Essential Oils for Stress

Melissa Rodgers
Aromahead Graduate

In addition to the excellent curriculum and materials, they provide thoughtful ongoing support to ensure students are able to grasp and integrate their learning in meaningful ways. It is wonderful to be a part of the Aromahead Community!

Pamela Gomez
Aromahead Graduate

The ACP Course Experience was awesome, to say the least.  I was able to study online and not leave my responsibilities.  There were times when life got in the way but the support and the technology was AWESOME!. I could watch the webinar and video on my mobile devices, the case study and research paper feedback was much more than I expected.  The response time to my email with my case study mentor, Sheila was excellent. Additionally the course activities we great and my products always sold out.

Melanie Manavi
Aromahead Graduate

My experience at Aromahead was wonderful from start to finish, and that's no exaggeration! The online classrooms are formatted beautifully and make it easy to learn at one's own pace. I was especially impressed with the scope and quality of information offered regarding essential oil chemistry and anatomy and physiology. Best of all, the staff and instructors are so friendly, helpful, and responsive. I felt they really cared about my success. I can't wait to continue my aromatherapy education with Aromahead!

Aromahead Graduate

What I've loved the most at Aromahead Institute the most is how passionate Andrea is about the oils and this makes her an absolute pleasure to learn from.  Andrea takes the science and chemistry of the plant essence and explains things so easily, which is key when there are just so many chemical components and medicinal aspects to plant essences.

Mary Kate Santulli
Aromahead Graduate

From the first click of the link Aromahead was there providing support and gentle instruction on the path to becoming a Certified Aromatherapist.  There is so much support and encouragement...I never felt alone.  The feedback on case studies was always insightful and encouraging.  It was actually a joy to learn! AI wants you to succeed and they back it with real support and love.   I am so grateful to Andrea and Aromahead for creating such a beautiful community of friendship, support and learning.
