Diploma in Aromatherapy

QAN 600/5505/4

Plants have potent medicinal value and have been used since thousands of years by different ancient civilisations such as the Indians, Chinese, Greeks, Romans and the Egyptians as a cure against illnesses. They have also discovered that plants are good cosmetic ingredients and the different scents can allow them to be made into perfumes.

Aromatherapy does not only dabble with scents that will help you balance your body, mind and spirit. The use of essential oils is a major aspect of Aromatherapy practice and because the oils are potent, their healing properties are also magnified. These oils may be used in many different ways to provide relief to many physical and emotional discomfort. The medicinal use of essential oils is traced back to Rene-Maurice Gattefossé whereby he discovered that the burn on his hand could be treated effectively with Lavender oil. During World War I, Jean Valnet also used essential oils as antiseptics.

This course will not only teach you the healing properties of a wide range of plants and herbs, but also how each is processed and prepared, and how they can be used safely for various applications. Students will benefit learning special techniques from the founder of our Academy, who is also the founder of the Pyranergetic Technique (a unique healing technique using essential oils to direct the flow of Qi/Praana) to promote and aid healing and well-being.

Learning Approach

Students will be guided through the course to understand how the body works and the connection each organ shares with another. The course will also introduce the healing properties of a wide range of plants and herbs, and how each is processed, prepared and how one can use them safely. Students studying this course will be encouraged to think holistically; how the properties of each herb may influence how the body works. Extensive practical training is also a prerequisite for this course. From learning Aromatherapy massage to making your own creams with Essential Oils, this course covers it all.

"I was always getting more & more excited for the next class. Acquiring knowledge in Aromatherapy has opened up the world for me! I strongly believe that when we have a strong passion in a subject, we must pursue it, and arm ourselves with knowledge. Now, my biggest take away from this course is, that age is just a number, there is no limit. The academic team works very closely with each other and us, and always enquired for our feedback to ensure a two-way communication style which I am grateful for. This qualification provided me the confidence and resources that we need not fear the use of essential oils and as such, it made me realised after graduating that I am honoured to be an alumni of this holistic academy."

"Thank you very much for the opportunity to learn with Sandhya Maarga. I am very glad that I went ahead with teh course and although I found Anatomy & Physiology to be a very dull, dry and boring topic for me, I still enjoy the course especially when I get to learn about the essential oils and their use. I hope to learn all that are necessary to be able to use my knowledge to assist others when needed in the future."
