The Future of Aromatherapy: Professional Compendium

Updated: Sep 18, 2020

It was in 2019 that I recognized I had been using aromatherapy for over twenty-five years. In that time, I have witnessed tremendous world growth and interest in aromatherapy for personal and professional use. After decades of observing nature's ways, it inspired me to incorporate my insights and principles into these natural cycles. The variety of plant medicine applications has supported me to decrease stress levels, increasing my overall vitality, health, radiance, and immunity.

Aromatherapy has become an integral part of my daily life, including being a founder and director of an aromatherapy school and a published author.

With interest in what the future of aromatherapy held, I formally requested other long-time aromatherapy professionals, teachers, authors, and mentors from around the world to share their perspectives and insights with others on this journey.

It is with deep appreciation and gratitude to all the professionals that contributed their views to the benefit of all who read this. May the future of aromatherapy be up-leveled and sustained for future generations to utilize this amazing healing modality.
