Gold Sponsors

New York Institute of Aromatic Studies

New York Institute of Aromatic Studie was founded because of how fascinated, inspired and moved we were by those discoveries in ourselves; that’s why our experience—and our curriculum—goes far beyond the chemistry of oils to include all the ways in which you experience aromatherapy, from scent to memory, from emotion to energy. We started our journey as one of the first aromatherapy schools in the U.S. back in 1990. From that beginning, our mission was to offer a balanced, progressive and inspiring approach to aromatherapy education.
