A: Starting an online aromatherapy service is an exciting venture. Regarding your question about setting up a business trust, it's indeed possible. A business trust can manage the business's assets and operations, but the specifics can vary widely based on your location and business needs. It's wise to consult with a legal expert in your area to understand the best structure for your business and ensure compliance with local laws and regulations.

As for trademarking a phrase that is the business name, it is generally a good practice to protect your brand and avoid potential legal issues. Trademarking can prevent others from using your business name or a confusingly similar one. To proceed, you should conduct a thorough search to ensure the name is not already in use or trademarked. Then, you can file for a trademark with the appropriate governmental body in your country.

In both cases, reaching out to a legal professional familiar with business law and intellectual property rights will be invaluable. They can provide tailored advice and assist with the necessary filings and legal documents. Remember, protecting your business legally from the beginning can save you from many complications down the road.
