Aromatherapy Education and Certification
Who Should Take Our Accredited Aromatherapy Courses?
As a Director of the State of Ohio National Association of Holistic Aromatherapy (NAHA), I am often asked whether it is necessary for people that use aromatherapy in a healing capacity to receive proper training. My answer is always a resounding yes. Lots of our customers enjoy aromatherapy oils solely because of the fragrance. They use a diffuser and enjoy the scents that permeate around the house.
For people that intend to use essential oils and aromatherapy for medical purposes though, there are crucial lessons that need to be learned; these include, but are not limited to, gaining knowledge of the chemical properties of the essential oils and learning the correct blending techniques; in the hands of an accredited practitioner, they are a powerful clinical tool.
We take aromatherapy and the use of essential oils very seriously and strongly advise people to take a course that is accredited by an official body. Our courses are accredited by the National Association for Holistic Aromatherapy (N.A.H.A) and the National Certification Board of Therapeutic Massage and Bodyworkers (N.C.B.T.M.B.). The devil is in the detail; it is the small snippets of knowledge gained from years of experience, that we pass on to our students – over and above the general course curriculum – which often make a huge difference.
What Makes Natural Option’s Certification Seminar Special and Unique?
We teach a number of different topics on our certification seminar that others do not.
Firstly, we cover 41 essential oils in depth. We teach what they do and why, and how to use them to achieve the desired outcome. We also cover the chemistry and history of aromatherapy; this is a requirement dictated by the NAHA. You may find other courses that teach this but this is where the similarities end. We also discuss and dissect several diseases and conditions such as arthritis, Parkinson’s disease, MS, dysmenorrhea, depression, etc. We look at the different facets of the disease, what traditional medicine does to treat it, the advantages and disadvantages of that, and then look at what aromatherapy treatments can do. We also divide the course into six different lab sessions. In each session, you are required to formulate two specific blends for two specific issues. This gets the attendee into hands-on formulating and blending. The individual gets into the mindset of using essential oils for their physiochemical properties instead of whether they like the scent or not.
After completing the course, attendees are required to follow a specific format that we provide to do three case studies of their own. This information goes towards building a large database of studies. We reprint the case studies and send them to all past students of our aromatherapy courses. This serves several purposes. First, everyone will have a large collection of studies with specifics on the blend used, how it was used, how often it was used, and the results. This will give you a large number of proven blends and applications for you to use with your clients. Then, if you use the same blend in the same way, we can keep that on file. When we get enough case studies on the same issue with similar results, that becomes the basis for a case trial.
So that we can give our students the individual attention that they need and deserve, we keep class sizes small; typically three to ten people. Graduates use their newfound knowledge in a variety of ways. This could be teaching the general public, teaching massage therapists and reflexologists, or even working within hospices or skilled nursing facilities. If you have taken the course with the aim of working in one of these roles, or any other, we will provide you with business ideas, and continued help, support and advice.
It is for these reasons and more that we feel our Aromatherapy Certification Seminars stand out in helping you to help others.
