How Do I Become an Aromatherapist in Canada?
A Canadian aromatherapist has the qualifications needed to do everything we’ve already discussed, but there’s a little more to it. The first step in starting your practice is to become a certified aromatherapist. This certification is important in understanding safe and effective essential oil and other aromatic compound use.
There are plenty of holistic schools teaching aromatherapy concepts and practices and an endless number of organizations promoting the sharing of knowledge as well as continued education.
For instance, the Canadian Federation of Aromatherapists has solid leadership and credentials that they use to help support practicing aromatherapists with current best practices, live events and webinars, career development, continued education and much more.
Schools and organizations like this work very hard to further the profession of aromatherapy by adding value and increasing awareness and credibility to the field. Becoming an aromatherapist in Canada involves completing your education, but a continually successful aromatherapy practice involves remaining an active learner in the community.
