Aromatherapy Certificate Program at FRCC’s Campus in Fort Collins Earns Accreditation

The Aromatherapy Certificate, part of the Holistic Health Program at Front Range Community College’s Larimer Campus, has earned accreditation from the National Association of Holistic Aromatherapy (NAHA).

Accreditation means the certificate program has met NAHA’s national standards of aromatherapy, based on learning outcomes.

FRCC’s Aromatherapy Certificate is an 11.5-credit-hour course of study that includes classes in Basic Anatomy and Physiology, Applied Aromatherapy, Creating a Holistic Business, and Advanced Aromatherapy. Classes are taught at the Thompson Learning Center, 800 N. Taft, Loveland.

NAHA’s website defines aromatherapy “as the art and science of utilizing naturally extracted aromatic essences from plants to balance, harmonize and promote the health of body, mind and spirit.  It is an art and science which seeks to explore the physiological, psychological and spiritual realm of the individual’s response to aromatic extracts as well as to observe and enhance the individual’s innate healing process. As a holistic practice, Aromatherapy is both a preventative approach as well as an active method to employ during acute and chronic stages of illness or ‘dis’-ease.”
