The Heal Center’s Aromatherapy Foundation Course is a 50 (in-class) hour course providing you a deep understanding of the key elements and practices of aromatherapy. You will build a strong foundation of experience and knowledge in the theory and safe, therapeutic practices of 60 essential oils.
Step beyond essential oil enthusiast into the vast world of aromatherapy, aromatic medicine, and its many applications.
Now in our 30th year(!), our focus remains strongly on providing in-class training, the emphasis on hands-on learning, student-teacher interactions, group discussion and Q&A. Classes are lively and supportive, cultivating your working knowledge and confidence.
Your journey into aromatherapy training, the experience as a whole, is made stronger by learning alongside your peers. We believe this is an invaluable asset. Observing our students realize and experience profound healing with essential oils, physically, emotionally, and spiritually, this is our greatest reward!
We hold our students to a high standard, whatever your ambition, to ensure your blending and applications of essential oils are both effective and crafted with safety in mind.
This well-established course provides you the clinical knowledge with safe practices, an understanding the important body-mind connections, and importantly giving you space to explore and develop your sense of intuition in working with essential oils.
In combination with the lessons on anatomy, physiology, wellness-disease, and pathologies, this course has been designed and refined over the past three decades and has proven to be a very thorough and effective approach to learning Aromatherapy.

We understand life is busy. Missing more than 3 classes is not advised. Students should make every effort to make-up any lessons missed, whether from another student or scheduled 0ne-on-one time with an instructor. Make-up lessons may be arranged with an instructor at an additional hourly cost of $40/hr. Typically, material from a missed class can be covered within 1-hour, one-on-one. Missing more than 9-hours of the class may result in delayed testing and course completion.
Study and practice outside of class are necessary and expected (your family and friends will be very grateful!). Gaining proficiency in any art and skill comes with consistent practice. Plan on reserving a few hours per week for study and practice.
Upon successful completion, you will receive your Certificate of Completion. This certifies that you have successfully completed the Heal Center’s comprehensive Aromatherapy Foundations course.
Lesson Structure and Approach
This course is designed to present ‘digestible’ lessons, with time for questions and discussion, and supervised hands-on practice.
Each weekly 3-hour class will cover a specific body system and associated topics. Typically, class begins with the study of the body system, its anatomy and physiology, and associated pathologies, including physical, emotional, spiritual concerns, and mind-body connections.
Our program provides you the necessary time in between classes to absorb information learned, to study, and to practice your blending and applications at home with the information from each lesson.
In providing this program since 1992 we find this lesson structure brings students the greatest success in class while balancing commitments, work and family.
As a guide and mentor, we are with you through your journey into Aromatherapy!
