About Us

At Purodem, we teach aromatherapy courses and natural skincare courses in organic skincare formulation. Our courses are online on our custom-designed learning platform, the Purodem Academy, and via our iPhone/Android/iPad mobile apps.

We offer two courses: a professional-level clinical aromatherapy course suitable for those wishing to become fully qualified professional aromatherapists and a foundation course in natural skincare formulation, teaching students the art of organic skincare formulation and manufacture.  

Despite being distance learning courses, we offer full tutor support to guide and assist you through your learning journey. The course content includes videos, downloadable worksheets and resources. As a student, you can also participate in live practical CPD workshops and seminars via live-stream at the Purodem Academy and our UK-based venue.

We started Purodem to teach the art of aromatherapy skincare formulation to the next generation of complementary healthcare practitioners, aromatherapists, herbalists, advanced beauty therapists, holistic aestheticians, and entrepreneurs. As a company, we have grown quietly over the last few years, providing face-to-face individual and group training on how to safely formulate their own natural and organic ranges of skincare products that meet the needs of their customers and clients whilst being economically astute and environmentally ethical.

As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic of 2020, we (and many others) have adapted our business to deliver our courses online by creating our learning platform and social network community called the Purodem Academy. We are also proud to have become an accredited school for the International Federation of Aromatherapists (IFA), the oldest and most established aromatherapy governing body in the UK, teaching their flagship aromatherapy course – the Professional Essential Oils Therapy (PEOT) Diploma.

Please look around our website; I hope you like what you see and choose to study with us at Purodem.

Aromatherapy Courses - Accredited by IFA & PSA

We are an accredited aromatherapy school for the International Federation of Aromatherapists (IFA), teaching their flagship aromatherapy course, the Professional Essential Oils Therapy (PEOT) Diploma, to trainee aromatherapists and healthcare practitioners wanting to use aromatherapy in a clinical setting. 

Devised and created by aromatherapy industry specialists, the PEOT aromatherapy course is the most advanced level aromatherapy training available for you to study. It will enable you to work confidently with 90 essential oils, and 34 carrier oils, learning how to use scents for emotional and mental benefits, which help in the treatment of illnesses of psychosomatic origins.

This qualification was created and is regulated by the International Federation of Aromatherapists (IFA) and is recognised by the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC). As a specialist course provider we have been approved by the IFA to deliver the PEOT course by successfully meeting their rigorous approval process, demonstrating our commitment to offering learners a high standard of training.

Upon graduation of the PEOT aromatherapy course you will be eligible to join the IFA PSA Accredited Register of Aromatherapists. The Professional Standards Authority for Health and Social Care is an independent body, accountable to the UK Parliament and is referred to by the NHS.

our ethos - clean & natural skincare formulation

Purodem’s clean, natural and organic skincare formulation courses will teach you everything that you need to know to take you from being an absolute beginner, to a responsible skincare formulator. One that is able to create your own product formulations and recipes with confidence.

Our ‘Clean & Elevate’ philosophy of skincare formulation & manufacture aims to help students to create a sustainable, nature kind future for the cosmetic skincare industry. We believe that working with consideration and care of nature’s resources is the secret to a successful product formulation.

Good cosmetic skincare formulation is about identifying of the specific skincare requirements of an individual, creating a product using only the materials sourced from nature that are needed, and no more. The result is a cosmetic skincare preparation being effective in its simplicity.

Many students who I have worked with have gone on to develop their own skincare brands, and have created their own bespoke skincare ranges for themselves, aromatherapy clients and beauty therapy clients. Others have been given the confidence to follow their dreams and begin a whole new career path, in some cases after redundancy, or when reassessing their work / life balance.
