Advanced aromatherapy

This is a more advanced workshop, where we will look at the chemical constituents of different essential oils (including how they can vary), and how they may affect our mind and body. We will explore how we can use this knowledge to make a more informed choice of which oils to use in specific circumstances, paying attention to contraindications and cautions.

Carrier oils are often overlooked in aromatherapy massage training, so we will investigate this for ourselves with simple experiments to see how their smell, feel and appearance make an important contribution to our overall experience of an aromatherapy treatment.

Using the skills and knowledge you have acquired throughout the day, you will have the opportunity to make an organic massage oil or skincare product for a specific purpose, to take away with you.

At the end of the day, you will have learned:
• An in-depth knowledge of the chemical constituents of some carrier and essential oils;
• How the composition and quality of essential and carrier oils can vary;
• The importance of understanding when an oil should not be used, or used cautiously;
• How to apply this knowledge to give you confidence in your choices of oils;
• How to make a product to suit a specific purpose.

You will also receive:
• A certificate of attendance;
• Your own massage oil or skincare product developed for a specific purpose;
• A complimentary Purely Skincare apron.

Key Points:
• Informative and fun sessions
• Small group size – a maximum of 10 participants in a session
• Learn new skills and build on existing knowledge
• Take home your own hand-made products
• Receive a certificate of attendance
• Eligible for CPD points – check your Professional Membership criteria

We suggest that you have some prior knowledge of aromatherapy to make the best of this workshop, such as completion of Introduction to aromatherapy, or another form of learning or experience.

It is ideal for aromatherapists and massage therapists who would like to know more about the science of oils. You can receive 5 CPD points with the FHT for attending the workshop, and you can gain a further 5 points by using the experience to write a reflective piece of work relating to your practice. Please check with your own professional body to check how many CPD points you will be eligible for.
