I'm at the Alliance of International Aromatherapists conference in Chicago.
Maybe it's not surprising (considering this is the Alliance of International Aromatherapists!) but there have already been some great presentations by aromatherapists from all over the world.
I am truly inspired by the excellent research happening on the therapeutic potential of essential oils! Successful work with essential oils to resolve MRSA, working with cancer patients to support the difficult physical and emotional issues they may deal with when under chemotherapy and radiation, diffusing oils to clean the environment from viruses and bacteria, using flower essences with essential oil blends, supporting children and reducing their stress . . . the list goes on and on!
If you are interested in aromatherapy, I encourage you to join the Alliance of International Aromatherapists. They have a great e-newsletter and a great research database about essential oils. Plus, you'll become part of an international community of like-minded people to connect with, consult with and learn from!
