our courses

clinical aromatherapy & essential oils therapy

The IFA Professional Essential Oils Therapy Diploma (PEOT) course is designed to develop knowledge and understanding of the clinical application of essential oils, and provides the learner with the skills to provide advanced therapeutic treatments within a clinical setting and the skills to create your own product line. 

Pitched at an advanced level and devised by industry experts, this comprehensive course is unsurpassed by others. It enables you to work confidently with 90 essential oils and 34 carrier oils and how to use scents for emotional and mental wellness.

The aromatherapeutic module details natural ingredients and their uses, base products, ingredients to avoid and how to guide the therapist through making natural remedies in the clinic. Having a thorough understanding of the therapeutic properties of each specific oil, and their methods of application, enables the learner to tailor and formulate blends to individual clients when applying prescriptive aromatherapy.
