Welcome to the International Federation of Professional Aromatherapists

The International Federation of Professional Aromatherapists is the largest aromatherapy specific professional practitioner organisation in the UK, involved in supporting aromatherapists and improving standards of education and practice in aromatherapy. We are now growing internationally by encouraging and supporting aromatherapy training in many other countries.

The IFPA is a registered charity in the UK. We believe wholeheartedly in the principles and philosophies of holistic health, and the promotion of well-being for the individual. These principles and beliefs are the foundations of the IFPA’s aims and objectives for its members together with its strong code of ethics and practice.

IFPA takes a strong stance on the use of essential oils internally and by undiluted topical application.
