The BCAPA supports all practicing aromatherapists in maintaining the highest standards of professionalism, while educating the public about the benefits or aromatherapy.

The British Columbia Association of Practicing Aromatherapists has been supporting aromatherapists since it was first incorporated in 1994. We have many members, in BC and beyond, who work in varied areas and aspects of aromatherapy, from owning retail stores and websites to manufacturing aromatherapy products, to running their own aromatherapy practices where they offer the public the professionalism, wealth of knowledge and education they have attained as a member of the BCAPA.
