Course Content: The whole subject area of how aromatherapy can help with hormonal conditions is unclear and sometimes baffling. However, because most of our clients will be suffering from a hormonal imbalance of one sort or another (stress is a direct result of stress- inducing hormones) it becomes clear that understanding the influence of essential oils on the human system in relation to hormonal balance is crucial.

This course will identify how certain essential oils can bring about balance and harmony to the human being by supporting the hormonal system. Individual molecules will be explored that can be used daily to treat common problems such as PMS, stress, thyroid deficiency and much more.

Using essential oils, carriers, hydrolats, skin care and relaxation techniques to preserve inner and outer beauty and peace. We will look especially at PMS and the menopause and will explore a holistic approach to both these issues, and how aromatherapy can help.

The hormonal content of certain essential oils will be explored along with methods of use and how much of each oil to use for the different areas of menopause. Treatment plans will be drawn up for individual needs and personal advice will be given if requested.

Course tutor: Colette Somers - Colette began her journey in aromatherapy 28 years ago and runs an aromatherapy practice and school in Winchester. Working with carers, teenagers with mental health problems and women with breast cancer, as well as clients with a variety of issues Colette is passionate about passing her experience on through teaching.
