Holistic teaching

Lindsay works with great enthusiasm and with a passion for the expansive nature of holistic living and aromatherapy, which has drawn her into training others to work as aromatherapists. In this course she enjoys communicating the pleasures of the art and the exacting nature of the science of aromatherapy.

Her teaching encourages the students to take responsibility for their own physical, emotional and spiritual health, which in turn develops the student’s abilities as therapists to others. She teaches with absolute integrity, which brings a deep focus into the work. Embracing the concept that learning never stops for herself and with her students, she encourages them to enjoy the journey towards of aquiring knowledge, and the active process towards being a fine holistic aromatherapist.

Lindsay is willing to help students with any difficulty during the course, and also will have consideration of any student who falls behind due to illness, family pressures or other unavoidable problems.

Nothing is more memorable than a smell…and when we breathe we pass the world through our bodies, brew it lightly, and turn it loose again, gently altered for having known us.
