  2018 - 2019 Schedules

The Eclectic Institute of Aromatherapy and Herbal Studies invites you to come and study the ancient art and science of Aromatherapy and Herbalism, to indulge your senses in courses that will awaken you to the beauty and healing powers of the plant kingdom.

We are proud to offer an interactive, comprehensive certification to those desiring hands on training in aromatherapy and herbalism in New England.

These courses are designed to bring both art and science together, to stimulate and inspire while providing practical information and skills for everyday use.

The Institute’s goals are to provide you with the information needed to work with these complementary tools in ways that are both safe and effective.

Learning to make your own herbal, aromatherapy and cosmetic products will enable you to customize and target your creations for specific conditions and ailments.  In doing so you will also have control over the quality of your products as well as their safety.  You will find it far more cost effective and empowering to produce your own remedies, with fewer concerns for side effects, contraindications and crossing medications.

Only through living things, such as plants and oils can we gain vitality and strengthen the system.  In this way we can rebuild the body and enhance vibrancy.

Please browse our many courses offered below and contact us with any questions regarding classes: 978-297-4502.


Here are the schedules and locations for the courses offered in 2018.  Some courses are offered several times in different locations throughout New England.  All registration must be done through those hosting the course.  Please contact the location of interest to secure your place within the class.  Prior registration is required to ensure adequate materials for all students.  There is limited space so please register early to ensure availability.  Complete course descriptions are available under appropriate tabs or are listed within course information.
