Aromatherapy for Pregnancy and Post-Natal Care Diploma : 1-day

Whist pregnancy can be a wonderful time, it can also be uncomfortable, with backache, swollen legs and ankles and also anxiety about the birth.

This is a perfect time for using essential oils and aromatherapy – providing you stick to the rules!

The skin becomes very sensitive during pregnancy so you would need to know the correct way to dilute oils when preparing your blend.

Your client may also be very sensitive to the aromas of the oils and be adverse to oils she normally likes.

If you intend to use this with massage, please ensure that you are qualified in Pregnancy Massage before doing so. This course does NOT include a massage routine.
