Many individuals come to study aromatherapy simply for their own family or self, to improve their ability to care for themselves and others during times of illness and to support their overall commitment to maintaining health and preventing dis-‘ease’. With an increase in the desire to reduce the use of over the counter medicines, aromatherapy and herbs offers an amazing 21st century medicine chest.
21st Century Healthcare
The continued growth in the interest in complementary and alternative approaches to health has lead to an increased demand for therapeutic aromatherapy based products and practices. Along with this interest is a growth in demand for ‘green’ and sustainable products. This interest has guided the demand for truly natural skincare products, cleaning products and other natural based products that support health. Aromatherapy is able to fulfill much of this demand and interest through a variety of creative outlets.
The National Association for Holistic Aromatherapy provides you with numerous aromatherapy schools to choose from as well as monthly teleseminars to support and enhance your knowledge and application of essential oils/aromatherapy.
