Essential Oils and Aromatherapy for Chronic Pathologies (online studies)

This course is part of our Level 5 Aromatherapy upgrade diploma or you can do it as standalone CPD. It is perfect for essential oil practitioners and aromatherapists who want to increase their knowledge and skills when working with people who have long-term health conditions. There is so much mis-information when working with certain pathologies both in terms of essential oil use and massage treatments as an aromatherapist and this course aims to give you the confidence to work as part of an integrated healthcare team. You will be assessed through case study coursework and reflective practice.

Supported by a huge workbook that you can keep forever! You also have access to your tutor by phone, email, and video call for ongoin support.


Applicants will need to already hold a recognised level 3 diploma in essential oil therapy or aromatherapy (or overseas equivalent). By recognised, this means either meeting the Aromatherapy Council’s Core Curriculum in the year it was delivered or the CNHC Core Curriculum, first published in 2018. The Aromatherapy Council has published a UK national standard for training since 1991.
