Aromatherapy is not only a complementary, integrative and holistic health care practice, itโ€™s leading the 21st century wellness movement.

As a practice, aromatherapy is not a licensed or regulated profession in the United States (U.S.). And that’s not a bad thing! Rather than licensing, the industry is guided by professional organizations such as NAHA (National Association for Holistic Aromatherapists) in the United States, and other professional aromatherapy organizations throughout the world. These organizations set education and professional standards for aromatherapy schools to voluntarily comply with.

Professional aromatherapy organizations, such as NAHA, do not certify aromatherapists. Certification is provided by individual schools based upon specific criteria for each level of aromatherapy training as approved by the respective organizations.

Certification is earned from the school you choose to attend, which is why selecting a balanced, progressive, and inspiring school is so valuable.

Whether you are adding aromatherapy to an existing profession or are a part of the 21st century wellness movement, becoming a certified aromatherapist with The School of Aromatic Studies means you will be recognized as having acquired the knowledge, skills and tools that not only comply to industry and professional standards but support your success as part of the new generation of aromatherapists.

Interested in making your own aromatherapy product line to take to market? We highly recommend theย Botanical Body Care Courseย where you will receive in-depth resources about labeling laws, and other cosmetic regulations in the U.S. and the E.U. along with an extensive lineup of botanical palettes and product formulation.
