• Author is at least a level 2 NAHA certified professional aromatherapist.

• The common name of all plants and essential oils should not be capitalized, except where punctuation dictates otherwise. The following sentence would be written as: “When you are picking lavender (Lavandula angustifolia) for your distillation...” Do not capitalize the word lavender in this instance.

• Fact-check your data; especially historical dates and references.
• Include professional references and bibliography. Cite references using a numbered end note that appears at the end of the document. References should be listed in the bibliography in numerical order, not alphabetical order. Example: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 etc and not Adams, Brown, Chester etc. This makes it easier for readers to quickly find the appropriate reference in the bibliography.
All submissions are subject to editing, and must contain educational information, rather than marketing a certain product, service, class, etc. Visit the NAHA Writer’s Guidelines for more submission details, and or the NAHA Marketing Guide to learn how to promote your product, business, courses, etc.
