    Our sense of smell is about 10,000 times stronger than our sense of taste, but it is truly under appreciated. The olfactory system of your brain has a memory of scents and the longest recall of all the senses.

    Just think… does the smell of baking bread bring back vivid memories of visits with a relative in your childhood.. ever catch a whiff of the cologne/perfume of an old lover? Memories that are attached to scent are stronger!!!!

    Scent also stimulates the limbic system of the brain which responds by releasing neuro-chemicals. Such as Seratonin and Endorphins. These chemicals calm us.. arouse us… alleviate discomfort.

    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. Essential oils are derived from plants and are chosen for their particular therapeutic qualities that are stimulating, refreshing and sedative.Aromatherapy is also referred to as the fragrant art of using specially selected aromatic oils for therapeutic purposes. It is one of the fastest growing complementary therapies in the world and is recognized as one of the most natural and holistic treatments available today.

    Aromatherapy does not aim to treat disease. Its aim is to release feelings of well-being, harmony and improved mental and physical health.

    All graduates of an Alternative Healing Academy home study course will receive a 20% discount off an AHHA Practitioner Membership, if they meet qualifying criteria and join within six months of their graduation date.

    I’m so excited about (the Advanced Aromatherapy course) and I’m particularly excited about the possibility of making custom blends for people! I hadn’t anticipated having that opportunity when I took the course so I’m excited to have everything done! I’m very excited to have finished. I really enjoyed this course and really appreciate all the work you’ve put into it! This has been a fabulous jumping off point for me and I’m so glad I took it. p.s. I know the boys are much slower at the Reflexology, but my son is loving the classes. ~Megan P.

    I found this coursework to be holistic in its approach to the subject of Aromatherapy. I found each Chapter was easy to follow. The chapter summary, assignments and quizzes at the end of each lesson was a valuable review to study for the final exam. I found the illustrations very helpful in my study of meridians and anatomy. The exercises throughout was a great way to put in practice the “hands on” applications. Help was also a phone call or e-mail away with a prompt response. Best of all I was prepared after completing the Advanced Aromatherapy Diploma Course in August I sat for the ARC exam in October and passed! ~Ellie D.

    I’m done! Going through the final and the case studies and having such amazing experiences and opportunities to help people, I truly feel blessed and honored to have had the intense education that came with this course. I discovered in me a new ability to serve others, not only through education but through the power of healing that comes with the use of essential oils. I am continuing to train personally with Alexandria Brighton and have begun work toward opening an aromatherapy practice. Thank you so much for your patience and knowledge. Most of all thank you for this new way of living and enjoying Life. ~Amy Lindquist

    Alternative Healing Academy offered what I was looking for. The ability to study at my own pace, from home, is critical to my education path. Since obtaining my certification in the Advanced Aromatherapy program, I am enjoying running a mail order-based business creating custom blended Essential Oil remedies for both pets and people. ~Linda Troup, MakeNScents -

    The Advanced Aromatherapy Practitioner course offers a truly comprehensive and holistic view of the field of Aromatherapy. Not only was I taught the many distinguishing attributes of each essential oil, but I was also taught how and why they are able to affect the body physically, psychologically, and physiologically. This expert knowledge and insight is something I am able to share with my clients every day and I credit this course with helping me and my business to thrive. ~ Suzanne Driscoll, Scent Designs
