Aroma Apothecary Healing Arts Academy is a clinical aromatherapy school that integrates a holistic perspective of natural healing. We invite you to learn nature's pharmacy and natural healing methods. We offer professional aromatherapy certification courses for health professionals, holistic retailers, and those who have an interest in exploring the art and science of aromatherapy.   

We offer self-paced distance learning and virtual classrooms with personalized support and mentorship through email, phone, and one-on-one Skype sessions. The course materials are available either in digital download or hard copy (mailed to you).

Our Certified Clinical Aromatherapy programs are offered in the Professional Program (200-hours), Mastery Program (300-hours), or if a student needs to take one step at a time, we offer the same programs in the 50-hour courses, starting with the Clinical Aromatherapy Level 1 and then continuing to the Clinical Aromatherapy Level 2 Modules. See the program overview here.

Once a year we also offer a live virtual course for the certified aromatherapy teachers training. This course is accessed directly from the comfort of your home or office computer. Personal in-classroom mentorships can also be arranged in Crestone, Colorado for our clinical aromatherapy level 2 students.
