Aromatherapy Blending of Oils Course

Although aromatic oils have been important to many cultures for thousands of years, aromatherapy massage is a relatively modern treatment which was discovered in the 1950s. Aromatherapy is a much newer treatment than many other complementary therapies, yet this innovative treatment is very popular and is sure to be a welcome addition to your treatment menu.

Not only is aromatherapy massage deeply relaxing, it can also help to heal a great number of illness and ailments through the use of beneficial blends of essential oils. Aromatherapy treatments are also sure to smell fantastic for both your client and you as a therapist.

This course will teach you everything you need to know about offering a professional aromatherapy massage and blending your own oils. The course includes an online assessment at the end of every module.
