Aromatherapy uses aromatic essential oils to enhance well-being and to stimulate, catalyse and harmonise a healthy physical, mental and emotional state. Aromatherapists blend therapeutic essential oils specifically for each individual and suggest methods of usage to stimulate the desired responses.

Today, ever more people are turning to traditional therapies such as Aromatherapy to enhance the quality of their lives. Aromatherapists work in a variety of business environments including:

  • private practice
  • mobile practice
  • natural health clinics
  • beauty therapy clinics
  • health clubs
  • hospitals
  • hospices and nursing homes
