If you have an interest in Essential Oils, but don't want to learn all the massage that normally goes with Aromatherapy, then this is the course for you. Whether you want to develop your own clinical practice, add Essential Oils to your practice if you are already a massage therapist, make and develop your own products or just be able to make 'prescriptions' and products for your family and friends, or take your current Aromatherapy practice to the next level, then this is it. It is fully accredited (IPTI) and also recognised by the FHT.

The course is taught face to face, and will also be available via zoom video link for those further afield. The training days are done in 'bite size' pieces of 2-3 hour sessions in the evenings, and longer sessions where required, but will involve some residential days in 2018 for the practical training. Residential places will be available at no extra cost.

Besides studying 160 Essential Oils, 40 Carrier Oils and 20 Hydrosols, you will also learn how to mix and blend the oils, add them to carrier products such as base oils and creams and hydrosols.
There will be more of an emphasis on English Aromatherapy and the energetics and vibrations of the Essential Oils.
You will learn how to dowse and muscle test (Kinesiology) for the appropriateness of the 'prescription'.
You will learn which oils are appropriate for babies, children, pregnancy, the elderly and men.
You will learn how to create a range of beauty products from creams to hair and body.
You will learn how to make household cleaning products.
You will learn which oils are appropriate to deal with emotional, mental, relationship, physical and people's dreams and aspirations.
Most importantly you will learn the contraindications of the essential oils, and thereby mix and blend essential oils safely for each individual client.
The course will require you to submit homeworks which will include your own essential oil directory by the time you sit your exam.
You will need to submit 80 case studies, which you will have up to 3 months after your exam to complete before the award of your certificate.
You will be required to sit a 3 hour written exam.
The course includes your tuition, materials, examination fees, course manual (see picture above).
