The Aromatherapy Times Magazine

Did you know: The Aromatherapy Times is the only journal in the industry to have met the rigorous standards to be registered with the British Library and is accessible to practitioners and researchers in the archive of the library.

The Aromatherapy Times is the official educational journal of the IFA, currently available in four languages (English, Cantonese, Mandarin and Japanese). It is committed to furthering the knowledge of the science of essential oils and research that supports it and how to apply it in evidence-based practice. Our magazine prides itself on publishing articles from industry experts, covering all aspects of clinical aromatherapy in both the public and private sector and is registered with the British Library. Aimed at all learning levels – it features a balance of articles, covering a host of topics, for both experienced and aspiring practitioners and multi-discipline body-workers. First published in 1986, it has kept our members at the forefront of developments within the field ever since. It keeps our readership in touch with their work, their clients, professional trends, and importantly, reminds practitioners to regularly reassess their skills and take care of themselves. The magazine is distributed quarterly, free of charge to all our international registrants. If you are not a member and would like to receive the magazine - join us as a friend member today.
