Clinical Aromatherapy for Anxiety and Depression in the high risk postpartum woman - a pilot research study

The purpose of this study was to determine whether aromatherapy treatments and allopathic medical treatment compared with allopathic medical treatment alone without aromatherapy can improve symptoms of anxiety and depression in high risk post partum women.

The published results of the pilot study indicated positive findings for the use of aromatherapy for both anxiety and depression with the high risk postpartum woman. It represents a simple, effective, self care option for those suffering with anxiety and depression. In addition, it provides a safe and supportive tool for therapists and healthcare professionals. In the teleconference, Conrad will share the background, process and basic overall results of the published clinical aromatherapy pilot study.
