Providing IFPA Accredited Professional Aromatherapy training

About Us

Just a little information about us. My name is Anita James and I started Essentially Holistic in 2002. I began teaching in 2005. I have written and presented aromatherapy training, conference presentations and CPD courses over the world. I am registered as an IFPA external examiner.

It seemed natural after a very dramatic life change in 1999 to return to the earth to grow a new life. Thus my aromatic journey began. I feel as passionate today about aromatherapy as I did on the first day of my training.
