Welcome to our brand-new website!

It is such a pleasure to have you join us at this truly exciting time for Aromatherapy Today.

So let us begin with you learning a little about the team and what we now have to offer you!  

We are small family-owned business dedicated to sharing our knowledge and expertise on Clinical Aromatherapy, Aromatic Medicine and Herbal Medicine.

Aromatherapy Today International Journal has been in print since 1995 and still going strong after 28 years, with the option to now view the journal digitally.

It is important to Aromatherapy Today Journal, that we share the upmost professional knowledge in what we deliver, along with stories of interest within this chosen profession. Aromatherapy Today International Journal also invites those that have a story that they wish to share to the world, and submit for viewing for publishing.

Today our team have opened many other doors of excitement to share with you all, such as our newsletter, courses, workshops, products, journals and books.

Keeping Australia in the world’s eye is a quest we all share at Aromatherapy Today, the focus lay’s strongly with our First Nations People and the incredible way they used the Australian flora to survive and heal, with that in mind we focused on making this a strong part of what we do.
