Student Testimonials
In my 25 years of practice as a Naturopath and Chiropractor, I have rarely encountered the level of teaching expertise I experienced with Andrea Butje's Aromatherapy Certification Program.

- Edie Pett | Naturopath and Chiropractor, Aromatherapist

I believe your school, your staff and your educational philosophy are far more innovative than you realize. In fact, I see Aromahead as a model for the potential that distance education offers. The Certification Program was wonderful! The material was presented in easily digestible bite-size chunks that made learning enjoyable. The blending activities were both fun and instructive. With your explanations and everything step-by-step in blending videos, you really can't go wrong. Best of all, you and your team are always available to answer questions. I have taken more online courses than I can count, and this was the best by a long shot. I think it sets the standard for the future of online learning. With love, admiration and gratitude,

- Bruce Boynton

Aromahead Institute is a great Aromatherapy school. The blending is my favorite and it is due to how Andrea teaches it with an intelligent delivery and application examples. I got to study at my own pace, and in the comfort of where ever!! I study as I travel. I never would have had the confidence I have had I not studied at Aromahead. Andrea is 100% genuine and an exceptional human. I am blessed and proud to be her prodigy.

- Jacie Ann Crowell

The online component blending class is incredible. I learned more about the conifer oils than I ever thought possible and now have 2 new favorite oils, Siberian Fir and Pinon Pine. This class along with the Aromatherapy Certification Program has really increased my knowledge of essential oil chemistry. I now feel completely comfortable blending from a component perspective. The class has brought me a deeper understanding to my work as an Aromatherapist and Massage Therapist. I know my clients will be able to tell the difference.

Your video lessons and program content will be led by Andrea Butje, an internationally-recognized Aromatherapist who is changing the educational paradigm through her inspired approach to teaching + creating community online.

Andrea founded Aromahead Institute in 1998 to help people everywhere learn to use essential oils safely and effectively. Thousands of students from more than 170 countries have studied with Aromahead since that time – and many of our alumni have gone on to pursue successful careers and businesses in Aromatherapy and the Healing Arts.

In 2013, Andrea won the Alliance of International Aromatherapists' Lifetime Achievement Award for her heartfelt work in educating and connecting people involved in all aspects of the Aromatherapy industry – from renowned authors and distillers to those who are brand new to essential oils.

When she isn’t sharing her love of Aromatherapy with others, you’ll usually find Andrea in her kitchen – cooking, baking and playing with new recipes!

Frequently Asked Questions

Are there any prerequisites for participation in this program?

Anyone may take part in the Scholar's Program. No previous aromatherapy training is required.

Can I enroll anytime?

Yes! All the online classes at Aromahead Institute are self-paced. You can complete them on your own time, from anywhere in the world that you can log on to the internet.

How long will it take me to complete the program?

It depends! Most students complete this course within 6 months to 2 years, and then continue to refer back to it for many years to come. However, the program is completely self-paced, which means you can slow it down or move through it more quickly, depending on your learning style and availability. You’ll have permanent unlimited access to all of your course materials – as well as any subsequent updates to the course content – even after you’ve completed the program.

Do I need specific supplies in order to participate?

You will need some supplies in order to try the blending exercises and recipes in this program. You may use your own supplies or purchase them (supplies are not included in your tuition). Aromatics International has designed several beautiful kits with the essential oils, carrier oils, and bottles you’ll need to complete most of the courses in the Scholar’s Program. These kits are completely optional and sold separately through Aromatics International. You may choose to begin the program without supplies, and purchase them as you go along. However, you will eventually need a small collection of essential oils, carriers, and other supplies to complete your case studies for the Aromatherapy Certification Program.

How much support will I get?

Lots of it! The Aromahead Institute team is a dedicated community of educators that are ready to assist you and offer guidance when you need it. All of our teachers are Certified Aromatherapists, and have been in the profession for many years. You’ll have access to Aromahead’s online forum, where you can ask questions, participate in discussions and learn from other Aromatherapists.
