Aromatherapy for emotional & spiritual care

“The most valuable part of the course was developing a connection, appreciation & respect of the oils as well as the depth of resources provided” Cherisse Y, Naturopath, Auckland

Aromatherapy for emotional & spiritual care

This 2-day programme considers the emotional & spiritual impact of life-limiting illness.  Essential oils appropriate to this area of care are profiled, together with botanical hydrosols & other botanical products.

Several practical sessions explore essential oil blending for the emotional & spiritual needs of the patient with life-limiting illness, their family and caregivers.

Focus is placed on personalising aromatherapy interventions which are appropriate to the individual’s unique needs.  This is explored from time of referral through to end-of-life care and bereavement.


As professional carers of those with life-limiting illness, emphasis is given to self-care.  This includes techniques to enhance personal rest, relaxation, emotional & spiritual well-being.

Each participant will make 2 aromatic products to take home.  Comprehensive notes will be provided.
