Aromatherapy Part B: Clinical Considerations

Presenter Brooke Batchelor - The Paediatric Nurse

Brooke Batchelor is a Paediatric Registered Nurse, qualified Primary Teacher and children’s advocate. She founded ‘The Paediatric Nurse’ website in 2018 and has developed it into an online continuing professional development website for Paediatric Nurses. 

She is passionate about giving children a voice in healthcare and works tirelessly towards encouraging others to further develop their child and family centred care approaches. 

Brooke has recently joined the Advisory Board for the Standish Foundation – a charitable organisation that promotes child & family centred care, empowers healthcare professionals and provides funding & resources to healthcare professionals. Previously, Brooke also sat on the Board of Directors for the Association for the Well-being of Children in Healthcare, Australia and held the Vice President position in 2017. 

Brooke has a keen interest in holistic care and is working towards her Diploma in Aromatherapy certification and is currently studying towards her Yoga Teacher Training. 

Brooke discovered essential oils in 2004 when she was studying her massage therapy diploma, but it wasn’t until 2017 when she had an unexpected experience with essential oils that she became more interested in exploring what else they had to offer. 

Since then, Brooke has almost completed a Diploma in Aromatherapy, founded her essential oils business, Aroma Brooke, and is often found educating families on the safe and effective use of essential oils. 

When Brooke is not nursing, hosting webinars or teaching others about essential oils, she is spending quality time with her husband and 2 daughters or enjoying a yoga session with some essential oils & meditation thrown in.

Course Content

With the rise in popularity of essential oils and the projected growth of the essential oil industry, nurses will inevitably encounter families that use them in conjunction with other medical therapies.  

In this webinar, we will briefly revisit the bioavailability of essential oils and how they have the potential to interact with other medications. We will also explore the ins and outs of creating a good policy on essential oil use in healthcare institutions.
