What Our Aromatherapists are Saying

Testimonials

Aromatherapy is a self-regulated profession; ARC provides a valuable tool for demonstrating that a professional has, and continues to, put forth time and effort, investing in their own education.  Being an RA is akin to a retailer showing batch-specific GC-MS results; it shows that a known standard from an independent testing agency has been attained.

Crystal Brothers, RA

Vines of Wellness

Earning the public’s trust and showing competency in a self-regulating, unlicensed profession like aromatherapy can be difficult. Achieving RA status elevates the level of professionalism of an aromatherapist and the industry while showing the public we perpetuate a higher standard of continued education. This trust is important in an unregulated industry.

Michael Ford, RA

Avalon Holistic Wellness

With so many different certification programs becoming widely available, the Registered Aromatherapist designation is the only way to truly know that you were given the tools to succeed in our industry. It also provides a huge peace of mind to clients that you are truly knowledgeable. My clients have peace of mind to know that my education meets this standard.
