The School of Natural Health Sciences is excited to be starting the new year off with another valued, worldwide accreditation. We pride ourselves in providing the highest level of education for our students, and The International Institute for Complementary Therapies (IICT) agrees with us!
We offer two levels of Aromatherapy for an extended education. The Advanced Aromatherapy course is designed for practitioners who are already qualified, and wish to expand their knowledge on the subject. It’s advisable to take the Advanced course shortly after studying the foundational course, while it’s still fresh in the forefront of your mind. For this reason we have designed our Special Pack Offers, in which you can choose multiple courses with a dramatically discounted price.
If you’re only interested in Aromatherapy then our 2 for 1 offer would suit you perfectly – pay in full for the Advanced Aromatherapy Course and get the foundation course entirely FREE! Take a look at the offers here.
For students who are only interested in the theory of Aromatherapy, perhaps wanting to make your own products, for example, both courses can also be taken without incorporating the massage element. In this case the student would qualify with a Diploma that says Aromatherapy (Theory). Naturally though, the full courses, including the massage element, must be taken in order to qualify as a practicing Aromatherapist.
“Learning should not be a chore, rather, a joy. That’s what we’re aiming for here. That’s what we want for our students.”
Foundation Aromatherapy Course
“Aromatherapy does not aim to deal with disease – its aim is to release well being, harmony and improved mental and physical health.”
Aromatherapy is a holistic treatment, the aim of which is to produce a physical, spiritual, emotional and mental sense of well being through inhalation and massage of essential oils.
This foundation course will give you a solid introduction to the 30 most well-known oils. You will learn the properties of these 30 oils, how they are best used and their contraindications. You will become knowledgeable in the use of carrier oils for diluting your essential oils and an expert in combining the oils together and using them for different ailments.
This entry Aromatherapy course consists of 12 lessons which upon completion will leave you fully equipped to practice as an Aromatherapist. Students obtaining an 80% average pass mark will be awarded an internationally-recognised, accredited SNHS Diploma.
“The road to success is paved with knowledge.”
Advanced Aromatherapy Course
This is an extended course, designed for students who have already completed the entry course and wish to level-up. If you are already qualified in Aromatherapy and want to expand your knowledge, then this course will also be suitable for you.
The course consists of 15 lessons in which further detail of essential oil properties, uses and therapeutic qualities are explored. You will take on a closer study of Base Oils and explore treatments with the 24 rarer olis, including Jasmine, Neroli and Myrrh.
The course also delves into treatments of specific ailments and conditions, and how to use to oils for healing and balancing energy centres. A more profound examination of illnesses is addressed and how aromatherapy can alleviate them.
Like the entry-level course, students obtaining 80% average pass marks will be awarded an accredited SNHS diploma entitling them to practise.
“With the increasing demand for holistic health care and the ‘green revolution’, the demand for aromatherapy will increase, and hopefully we will reach the point where medical doctors incorporate it into their repertoire. It will become routine for doctors to send culture samples to the pharmacist for testing, and identify the relevant aromatherapy for the patient. The stress-relieving properties associated with aromatherapy make it an indispensable part of health care.”
Robert Tisserand (Author, world leader and expert on Aromatherapy)
