Based in beautiful Snowdonia in North Wales, the Welsh School of Aromatherapy is the first and only International Federation of Aromatherapy (IFA) accredited school in Wales. The school was created in response to aromatherapy WEA night-class students wishing to continue training to a professional level. The principal and founder is the Holistic Aromatherapist and tutor Lindsay Woodman BA (Hons) LLSA, MIFA, who developed the school over three years, in conjunction with the IFA taking in the first cohort in 2007.
The school embraces communication technologies and/or uses the postal service to enable not only the local community, but also students from all areas of the UK and even from abroad to train. The correspondence approach to learning requires discipline and careful time management from students in return for the flexibility it offers to study around other commitments.
This school is deeply rooted in the ancient wisdom and skills of healing traditions, whilst also drawing from the newest scientific knowledge. However overarching all school activities is a passionate endeavour to educate in a nurturing and inspirational environment and to promote ethical practice, sourcing of materials and lifestyle.
