Professional Aromatherapy Diploma – Theory only

 

We have created a theory only course so you may learn clinical aromatherapy either as an addition to your practise or work as an aromatherapist providing wellbeing services to clients. You will study three modules of clinical aromatherapy and one business module, that will give you the qualification of ‘theory only aromatherapy’ and allow you to practise as a Clinical Aromatherapist and become a full member of the IFPA. 

Case studies will be treated via lotions, creams, massage oils in your massage/reflexology practise (if you hold these qualifications already) using our client consultation forms. This is an ideal way to learn about safe blending of essential oils, carrier oils and hydrolats for their therapeutic properties and to be able to use these wonderful oils effectively.

 

Our enrolment doors are closed until May 2021, but you may join our waiting list and be first to hear when the doors are open. Please do get in touch to be added to our waiting list.
