Thank you for your question. I would refer the client to an aromatherapist who has been trained in treating people with cancer. Some oils could make them very sick or may react with medication

There are courses that would teach one the skills to use aromatherapy for palliative care. I am attending one at Citylit, plus there is another one that St Christopher's Hospice organise on 18th June. I would recommend attending these, they are one day workshops. Regards Maria
