Aromatherapy Course

 Looks at the evidence of the use of a form of Aromatherapy by our Early Ancestors, the Indians, Chinese, Egyptians, Greeks and Romans. It also considers some of the most influential figures in the development of Aromatherapy including Avicenna, Hildegard, Culpepper, Perkin, Whitla, Hall, Gattefossé, Valnet and Maury.

This section describes a number of ways in which aromatic products are extracted from plants, including distillation, hydro-diffusion, expression, solvent extraction, enfleurage, maceration, carbon dioxide extraction and phytol-extraction.

After a look at how essential oils access the body, the following methods of use are covered – baths, bidet/douche/sitz bath, compresses, creams/lotions, diffusers, jacuzzi, massage, perfume, pot pourri, room spray, sauna, shower and inhalation.

This section deals with the important safety considerations that must always be at the forefront of every Aromatherapist’s mind including safe quantities, safe storage, hazardous oils, sensitising oils, photosensitising oils, toxic oils and, very importantly, contra-indications.

This section starts by taking a quick look at the process in which essential oils are formed in plants. The economic value of these oils is then discussed, paying particular attention to the way in which oils can be detrimentally altered after extraction. This leads on to the properties that make essential oils so sought after. The general properties such as their solubility and volatility are considered first, followed by an overview of their therapeutic properties.

This section looks at the chemistry of essential oils. After a short introduction, some basic chemistry is covered to enable an appreciation of the chemical make up of compounds commonly found in essential oils. Information on alcohols, aldehydes, esters, ethers, ketones, lactones, oxides, phenols and terpenes is then presented.
