College of Aromatherapy
Aromatherapy has been practiced in one form or another since the beginning of civilization. Aromatherapy is the art and science of using oils extracted from aromatic plants to enhance health and beauty.  Everyone has used aromatherapy sometime in their life, but most people don't realize it. Vicks Vaporub® is actually aromatherapy, so is Listerine® and so are most cough drops.  

In The School of Natural Healing's Aromatherapy Home Study Program, essential oils will fill your home with vibrant fragrances from around the world.  This course not only teaches you the fundamentals of natural health care, but also gives you experience making your own essential oil formulas to try out on yourself and your friends.  Once you know how to make your own essential oil crafts, you might find yourself giving them away as gifts or even starting your own business. This one of a kind correspondence course includes thirty-two essential oils, seven text books, four study guides, four videos, and two audio cassettes.  Every aspect of basic aromatherapy is covered as well as detailed information on anatomy, and making simple home remedies with common herbs and spices you probably already have in your home.
