Our Charity Work and Projects

When there is no conventional treatment available to relieve symptoms or alleviate an illness, complementary care is often the only form of support people have. Essential oils have the potential to tap into the emotions, to heal and soothe the body and promote spiritual connection. Aromatherapy can help create an atmosphere where the recipient can feel cared for, physically relaxed, calm, less anxious and restful. It also has the potential to play a vital role in care and recovery programmes. 

Each year, once all the bills are paid and our regulatory responsibilities fulfilled, we set aside a percentage of our revenue in furtherance of our charitable objects. We donate funds, expertise and other resources to raise awareness and initiate various charity projects. We reach out and respond to those in need and through various methods we integrate aromatherapy into that environment. We have pioneered the use of aromatherapy in various sectors to not only improve the care available and further validate our work but also to improve the industry we represent. IFA registrants up and down the country and across the seas are living embodiments of our ethos. We are immensely appreciative of our registrants who have not only dedicated their careers to the profession but also their valuable spare time to undertake volunteer work and support our charity projects, which in turn, has inspired some of them to start their own. In the UK, their collective voluntary work in the health sector has pioneered aromatherapy in the NHS. It is important to remember that without the fortitude of IFA members, aromatherapy would not be as accepted as it is today. We are proud of our historic and ongoing commitment to investing in research to further evidence our work and delivery of our aromacare programme. If you are able, please consider donating in some form to help our cause.
