About Asia-Pacific Aromatherapy

Asia-Pacific Aromatherapy was established in 1999 by Christine Saunders, now our Honorary Principal, with the vision of promoting the benefits of aromatherapy in the Asia-Pacific region through the training of top quality professional aromatherapists.

The school offers  a popular spectrum of aromatherapy courses from introductory to professional level. Our diploma course is one of the most comprehensive course in Asia teaching in both English and Chinese, and is accredited by and affiliated with three international governing bodies for aromatherapy, including the UK-based IFPA, the US-based NAHA and the New Zealand based NZROHA.

With our professionalism and high-standard in our aromatherapy training, we are recognized as an one of the IFPA CPD Centre worldwide and the only one in Hong Kong.

To meet the soaring demand of our students and clients, the school has developed into a one-stop shop offering a vast selection of top healing quality essential oils, carrier oils, synergies, and related accessories that are usually available only to therapists in the field.

As an academy, we strive to keep ourselves abreast of the latest developments in the international research arena, and will never compromise on our standard of excellence for the sake of commercial advantage. We are trusted by our students and clients, and we grow alongside them.
