romatherapy, the practice of using aromatic oils extracted from plants, herbs and flowers, is one of the fastest growing fields in the world today. It is the art and science of using aromas; essential plant oils, in treatments. Research has shown that fragrances and oils can be effective in relieving stress, calming nerves, energizing the body, improving the mood, and even improve work efficiency. As aromatherapy grows in popularity, retail shops everywhere carry aromatherapy products, whether oils, fragrances, soaps, lotions, massage oils and other products. According to the National Association of Holistic Aromatherapy, this is now "a $300 million a year business and estimated to quadruple in the next five years."

Since aromatherapy is a relatively new field, there is still a lot of room for this business. You must, however, be knowledgeable with the benefits and uses of various oils. Many aromatherapists have extensive background in other health-related fields such as massage therapy, psychotherapy, or chiropractic, among others.

You can start off by operating your own practice or developing and manufacturing your own line of aromatherapy products. You can sell these products wholesale to retailers in your locality, or sell them yourself. Partnerships with massage therapists can be an important strategic alliance for your business, and can strongly enhance your reputation. You may be required to secure specific licenses to operate as an aromatherapist in your country. Be sure to check all laws and regulations pertaining to this type of business.
