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 is a 2-day programme which is part of the Aromatherapy in Oncology & Palliative Care series.

Continuing on from Introducing Aromatherapy in Palliative Care, the programme considers the emotional & spiritual impact of life-limiting illness from diagnosis to end-of-life care.

Essential oils will be profiled together with botanical hydrosols and other botanical products suitable for emotional & spiritual support.

We need to pay much more attention to emotional, psychological and spiritual well-being and the huge importance of healing relationships.”                                Dr Robin Youngson Hearts in Healthcare




Several practical sessions will explore essential oil blending for the emotional & spiritual needs of the patient, their family and caregivers. This includes aromatherapy interventions appropriate for the individual.

Emphasis will also be given to self-care, incorporating techniques to enhance personal rest, relaxation, emotional & spiritual well-being when caring for those with life-limiting illness.

Each participant will make an aromatic product to take home.  Comprehensive notes will be provided.
