Since our inception in 1985 we have been safeguarding standards in training and practice through our official Codes of Ethics and Practice and Conduct. Since we’ve been established the IFA has been at the forefront of developments and research in Aromatherapy. At the very first council meeting in 1985 a small group met to decide on the educational values that would project Aromatherapy into the public eye. During those heady first years, the IFA took on the role of champion for its member’s by bravely contacting local media and institutions who were unaware of the therapeutic values of essential oils and the power of massage. IFA members have pioneered the use of Aromatherapy in NHS hospitals, hospices and special care units; alongside general practice, spas and salons. We are a self-governing body supported by our members and friends. We are very proud to hold our charitable status (327290) as we believe it ensures true integrity. As a charity we also support other charities through our various activities. Our non-profit status means that all revenue goes back into increasing the opportunities and benefits for our members. The IFA’s aim, alongside our members is to bring more awareness to the benefits of aromatherapy and using these tools to enhance the well-being and good health of an individual. The IFA is a truly international organisation with training schools and members across the globe.
