What is the Aromatherapy Certification Program?

Develop a lasting, meaningful relationship with powerful essential oils.

Study, in-person, with Certified Clinical Aromatherapists and master teachers Joy Musacchio and Cynthia Brownley during an intensive hands-on 15-day ACP (Aromatherapy Certification Program). The ACP is broken up into 3 weeks to give students the opportunity to travel, conduct case studies, and learn Aromatherapy independently. Our exciting and intensive curriculum mixes engaging lectures with group and individual blending activities that actively encourage independent thinking and problem solving. Aromatherapy classes take place in a natural, casual and very nurturing setting in beautiful Sedona, Arizona.
