There seems to be a growing interest in aromatherapy. I've been contacted by two libraries very recently to do introduction to aromatherapy workshops. So, my presentation entails a brief history, definitions of essential oils, carrier oil, hydrosols, and safety precautions. The participants will also have a first hand "sniff" and have time to identify what is pleasing to them and what associations come up. Lastly, they'll get "recipes" for trying at home.
Aromatherapy combines well with other modalities too. I was prompted to become certified because I wanted to know how to safely use aromatherapy during a therapeutic tuning fork session, Reiki, sound healing or expressive arts session. Aromatherapy is fascinating, a real science as well as an art.
