Aromatherapy - Gentle Touch

Overview

About the Level 3 Gentle Touch Aromatherapy Certificate

Out of all of the complementary therapies, aromatherapy is one of the most commonly practised and widely appreciated. This is likely because of its therapeutic and cosmetic benefits and its positive effects on psychological wellbeing. This Level 3 course aims to provide students with an introduction to aromatherapy and give them the skills to practise it independently.

In order to complete the qualification, students will need to work through 10 engaging distance learning modules. These units cover everything from the history of aromatherapy and the human body, to essential oils and how they work. The course also teaches students how to use aromatherapy in the home and garden, and how to use it to combat stress.

Who should study this course?

This online distance learning qualification is a great starting point for budding aromatherapists. However, it is also suitable for individuals with a general interest in aromatherapy or those who work in beauty therapy and want to expand on their knowledge.

Learners do not require any prior qualifications before they enrol on this home study programme. All we ask is that students are interested in learning about aromatherapy and that they have the motivation to succeed via distance learning.

What happens after the course?

Once students have completed this Level 3 aromatherapy course, they will have a fundamental understanding of aromatherapy and how it works. This knowledge will allow students to begin practising as aromatherapists and developing a client base.

Some students may choose to build on their knowledge and study towards a Level 4 qualification with learndirect. Others may decide to channel this new knowledge into their lives or their existing careers. Careers which relate to this course include:

  • Aromatherapist
  • Masseuse
