Aromatherapy is generally defined as the skilled and controlled use of essential oils (pure essences from plants) to promote physical and emotional well being. In the past century, it has evolved to become one of the major complementary therapies in many parts of the Western world with evidence-based clinical applications well documented in hospices, clinics and hospitals that uphold natural holistic therapies.

The course aims to:

  1. Nourish in participants an appreciation for and a basic understanding of aromatherapy, the advantages and medicinal properties of 20 commonly used essential oils and 6 base oil / base materials, and the ways to blend and apply them in our daily life.
  2. Develop in students a commitment to leading a more natural and healthier life, and pave the way for further study in clinical aromatherapy and other related disciplines.
