Aromahistory Trade in aromatic resins

Trade in aromatic resins is recorded in egyptian manuscripts and evidenced in bronze age shipwrecks for example dated to 1400BC

Besides a precious cargo of tin and copper, and the products of 10 civilisations, the ship contained on this leg of its journey 129 jars of Pistacia (terebinth) resin, an ancient type of turpentine used as a wine preservative.

Aromatherapy and babies

As a total DAD to 4 children I would like to point out particularly the beneficial effect of fresh season jojoba oil for nappy rash.

In my experience no particular essential oil is needed as the jojoba will take care of it. Besides being chemically similar to the skins natural oil sebum fresh jojoba contains helpful vitamins.

So less stress all round and may even convince the most sceptical of husbands of the merits of plant oils for the skin.

A drop of lavender oil at bathtime will turn this from a stressful experience to a delight.

They are all getting so big now!

Shirley Price Aromatherapy Principles and Theory - Distance Learning Course

A four module course sent to your own doorstep including all the course notes, carrier oils, essential oils, books and dvds that you will need.

 A four module course sent to your own doorstep including all the course notes, carrier oils, essential oils, books and dvds that you will need.  
The Distance Learning Course (DLC) in aromatherapy has been designed for aspiring students who are not able to attend the in-house training that is offered by SPAC.

The learning is assessed by means of course notes, background reading of appropriate text books (many of which are included in the course pack although several other books may need to be purchased), and observation of massage techniques presented in video form.  The course is presented in a box file.

The student will be required to complete each module, of which there are four, before proceeding to the next one, and will be required to submit written evidence to SPAC as directed.

Upon completion of the course and assessment session, the student will be awarded the SPAC Distance Learning Diploma in Aromatherapy.   Students are advised to take between 1 year minimum and 3 years maximum to complete the 4modules.

An anatomy and physiology qualification will be required.

Whilst studying the DLC you are eligible to take out “Student membership” of the International Federation of Professional Aromatherapists (IFPA).  After completing the course you may take out “Associate membership” of the IFPA, and will be eligible for insurance cover.  This cover will be the same as that offered to full members .

Sp offer a full pack of notes and materials for £1200.
For those wishing to join IFPA as a practicioner member at the end of their studies we offer an upgrade course of one week in August 2013 with Sue Jenkins MIFPA a former university course lecturer, IFPA council member and leading IFPA contributor. Sue Jenkins will arrange IFPA membership on satisfactory completion of the examination in theory and practice at our factory at a cost of £600+VAT.

As a medical practicioner you receive many exemptions and the examination does not provide a formidable challege for medical practicioners there are however practical techniques to be learned face to face.
The Shirley Price Aromatherapy College has for 37 years been accredited by IFPA.

Classical Pianist Davide Martello plays Gezi Park


The experience of blending essential oils is often compared to the notes of a piano fused to create a single experience. Never was there a more poignant moment in recent history than the work of Davide Martello   last night

This is how one protester described last night in Gezi Park, Istanbul

 " Instead of the final apocalyptic battle between good and evil, something else happened. Something unexpected. A piano appeared, a big one, the one they use in concerts. It was decorated with lights, it stood right at the top of the main entrance to the park, ‘nineteen steps to the edge of fear’. Someone sat down, and started to play. 'Imagine', by John Lennon."
