Aromatherapy

"Aromatherapy is the fragrant art of using specially selected aromatic oils for therapeutic purposes. It is one of the fastest growing complementary therapies in the world."

About Aromatherapy Course

All essential oils are antiseptic and have different effects - some regulate metabolic function, some stimulate, whilst some others will soothe irritations and anxieties. Massage is used with the oils to enhance their effectiveness.

Essential oils can be used safely at home for many ailments. This Aromatherapy Course will take you through from the extraction to the application of the oils for therapeutic purposes, as well as cover aromatherapy massage techniques.

One of the key features of this aromatherapy course is the inclusion of the anatomy and physiology added qualification.

At the end of this course successful learners will receive a Certificate of Achievement by ABC Awards and a Learner Unit Summary (which lists the details of all the units you have completed as part of your course).
