Studying aromatherapy courses will train you to use essential aromatic oils to improve a client's sense of general well-being or treat specific medical conditions.
Aromatherapy courses will teach you how to blend essential oils for use in massage, bathing and inhaling, allowing you to treat a wide range of physical, psychological and emotional disorders.
As a qualified aromatherapist, you will probably be self-employed, either running your own practice from home, or working at a complementary health clinic alongside herbalists, acupuncturists or other alternative health practitioners.
Alternatively, you might find opportunities in settings such as hospitals, health farms, or hospices.
