The Stillpoint Studies Aromatherapy Certification Program (ACP) is a workshop-style class in Sedona, Arizona.

We approach learning as a retreat, personally investing in our students’ futures and in the time they spend in our beautiful region. We handle breakfast and snacks, and we’re happy to help with transportation and scheduling evening activities.

During class time, we hit the ground running and maximize our time together with hands-on blending, informative lectures, awesome discussions, multimedia presentations, individual exercises, group study, and time in the wilderness of Sedona experiencing the botanicals of our magical forests, We have over four hundred oils and extracts for you to get to know intimately, blend and formulate with  and experience first-hand.

We believe that learning should be fun and invite students to approach Aromatherapy from a place of passion and authenticity. Aromatherapy courses are about developing a relationship and becoming open to intuition and understanding. The Aromatherapy Certification Program is hard work with huge rewards. We encourage you to take time for yourself and open your mind to profound methods of healing.
