The Diploma of Aromatherapy delves further into the theoretical and practical approaches of aromatherapy,  Aromatherapy in aged care and palliative care are highlighted, medical conditions and case studies are explored and other complementary therapies outlined in a way that promotes a positive symbiotic relationship alongside using essential oils.

This course is designed to give the student an insight into aromatherapy and how it can enhance and improve everyday living and how it can be of benefit to people in numerous environments. It places emphasis on the safe use and application of essential oils for a variety of conditions and how they can affect an individual physiologically and psychologically.

Benefits of Aromatherapy

Aromatherapy targets our sense of smell and touch. Aromatherapy is a natural and pleasurable way to restore vitality, to enhance our emotional wellbeing, and to stimulate rather than suppress the body’s immunity. Essential oils exhibit a wide range of therapeutic properties. They also act on the central nervous system. Some oils induce relaxation; some are stimulating, while others are balancing. Most stress-related problems can be successfully treated with aromatherapy and an enormous benefit can be gained by using essential oils for emotional well-being.
