About Us

The International Federation of Aromatherapists (IFA) awards qualifications as an Awarding Body and is also the Professional Body for aromatherapists worldwide, established in 1985. We are a charity set up in the public interest, whose purpose is the preservation of health and wellbeing by advancing the knowledge, practice of and expertise in aromatherapy by education, teaching and training. We provide a register of globally qualified and regulated aromatherapists who engage in evidence-based practice for the safety of the public. The IFA’s register has been approved as an Accredited Register by the Professional Standards Authority for Health and Social Care (PSA), a body accountable to Parliament. We offer an array of specialised curriculum leading to internationally recognised qualifications in aromatherapy through our accredited centres. The IFA has successfully pioneered aromatherapy in the UK medical profession and is the voluntary regulator for aromatherapy operating worldwide.
