About the Teleseminar:
Asperger’s is a form of autism that presents unique challenges and opportunities to those of us in aromatherapy. I am hoping to educate others about Aspergers and its unique challenges and the gifts that come with it, as well as present creative alternatives to using oils with the sensory challenges that are often present in Aspergers clients.
If there’s one thing every aromatherapist knows about essential oils, it’s their powerful affinity with our respiratory system. But do you know which essential oils have the greatest impact on illness of the lungs, throat and sinuses? click here for more information
Anyone who uses essential oils once will continue to explore them and will discover the diverse aspects of natural, aromatic essences – relaxation, stress reduction, immune strengthening, preventive cures, personal hygiene, and other steps on the way to healing and staying healthy.

The numbers of therapists using essential oils in Europe and the USA has grown from a handful in the early 1980’s to thousands now worldwide. We have had time to add to our bank of knowledge on essential oils from reflecting on many decades of aromatherapeutic development and history, the collection of
anecdotal information from practicing therapists, as well as from clinical & scientific investigations. We have also had enough time to consider the risks in employing essential oils in therapy. In the last twenty years, many more people have had accidents, been ‘burnt’, developed rashes, become allergic, and become sensitized to our beloved tools. Why is this?
