Aromatherapy is one of massage therapy’s most common companions. Aromatherapists use essential oils for the benefit of a client’s health. It can be as simple as using an essential oil diffuser during sessions, or you can pursue an independent aromatherapist certification to broaden your practice’s scope.

Aromatherapy CE courses are well-suited for distance learning and vary widely in both scope and approach. Brief, one or two hour courses will discuss using essential oils safely during sessions while in-depth courses can reach up to 300 hours and discuss clinical applications.

Specialized aromatherapy continuing education courses cover topics like using essential oils in skincare and the different schools of thought within the aromatherapy community.
