Course Details
This one-day module will be filled up to its brim with both theoretical and practical information covering various methods of essential oils use in order to safely support clients with their emotional, mental and physical needs.

The interactive demonstrations and hands on activities will allow you to experience the step-by-step processes of creating your own professional aromatherapy preparations suitable for a wide range of situations – from vapourisers and personal inhalers for emotional and respiratory issues, through gels, ointments and creams for different skin conditions, to First Aid as well as home & clinic use.

Get ready for demos and hands on fun! Make your own aromatherapeutic remedies and expand your practice beyond massage applications!
