Welcome to the Canadian Federation of Aromatherapists

The Canadian Federation of Aromatherapists was formed in early 1993 by a group of individuals concerned with the tremendous growth and popularity of Aromatherapy. These individuals, from varying backgrounds, recognized that there was no governing body or organization for the general public to call for information, or to verify that those claiming to be Aromatherapists were indeed qualified.

They felt there needed to be a central number where the public could obtain information on aromatherapy products and education.A decision was made to form the CFA and after much careful planning and work by the founding members, the organization was born.

What is Aromatherapy

Aromatherapy is the art and science of using essential oils for improving
and maintaining health and beauty. Several ancient civilizations (Egyptian, Greek, Roman, Chinese and Indian) have used Aromatherapy for their physical and mental well-being. The actual word “AROMATHERAPIE” was coined in 1928 by Rene Maurice Gattefosse, a French chemist.While conducting experiments, his hand was severely burned in a lab explosion and he found that LAVENDER healed it. He is referred to as the modern day father of Aromatherapy. Today there is growing interest in this gentle but effective method to balance body, mind and spirit.
