What is the Stillpoint Advanced Clinical Intensive?

In this nine-day 165 hour intensive program, aroma chemistry is taken to a profound level as we study the properties and structures of individual components, as well as the botany, therapeutic uses, energetics and chemistry of over 115 essential oils, absolutes and Co2 extracts. Through the exploration of chemistry, botany and vibrational aromatherapy, your work with essential oils can become more medicinal through safe and effective applications.

This class is an extension of our previous Aroma Mastery Program, with additional content and coverage of Aromatherapy topics.

We will take breaks for nature walks in the fabulous Sedona outdoors. And our famous snack table and breakfast are always included!

Who is this workshop for?

The Stillpoint Advanced Clinical Intensive is for certified or previously certified Clinical and Registered Aromatherapists who wish to use aromatherapy and essential oils in more medicinal applications and seek knowledge on safe and correct formulation and blending techniques.

Allopathic medical professionals, massage and physical therapists, acupuncturists, psychotherapists and psychiatrists that are also certified aromatherapists who wish to integrate essential oils and aromatherapy as a complementary modality to their practice will also benefit from this course.

Anyone who has completed a 200 Aromatherapy Certification Program in person or online who desires to be able to use aromatherapy medicinally for self or family.

If you have taken Stillpoint’s Aromatherapy Certification this will complete the necessary hours to receive your Advanced Practitioner Certification (formally know as Clinical Certification).

What Does the Stillpoint Advanced Clinical Intensive Consist of?

The practice of using essential oils and other aspects of aromatherapy is no longer only making sprays, candles, and blends. While those applications are wonderful and quite powerful in themselves, many want to use essential oils and hydrosols in more health and well-being applications. Essential oils are a powerful complement to conventional treatments, sometimes even more effective than traditional medicinal techniques and treatments. This trend in aromatherapy is known as “Aromatic Medicine” or the “French School of Aromatherapy.” We believe using essential oils and extracts in this manner is a synergy of all the “Schools of thought on aromatherapy.”

This level of formulating and blending for physical and emotional  healing requires intense training, a deep working knowledge of chemical families, human body systems, and botanical properties. In this hands-on, intensive workshop, you will learn the therapeutic properties of over 60 individual chemical components, both from documented and anecdotal research and how they synergistically interact with each other. This course delves deep into the healing powers of certain plants, the physiological systems within the human body and how they respond to the chemical components of essential oils, and the safe and correct way to administer essential oils as treatments.
