A site supporting qualified aromatherapists and students.

aromatherapy is the use of essential oils and other extracts of plants to promote physical and psychological wellbeing - also known as essence therapy.


therapy essence provides basic grounding information on aromatherapy, individual oil profiles, recipes for special oil blends, and tools to help identify oils relevant to promoting wellbeing in various physical and emotional conditions, plus advice on aromatherapy for beauty applications.


Information is also provided on current specialist books, research articles, links to relevant associations, and an a-z of other alternative therapies. The a-z is intended for practitioners who may seek to refer clients to other therapists, and includes a summary and links to membership associations dealing with the specific therapies.
