Note: The last 15 minutes of this recording were lost for unknown reasons.


While Eucalyptus oil and Tea Tree oil are known, used, and recognized by aromatherapists worldwide, a useful resource exists with other essential oils from Australia. Even less well-known and underutilized are bioactive plant fractions (BPFs) of essentil oils These BPFs represent an opportunity to augment and complement the therapeutic characteristics of essential oils and also of mainstream pharmaceuticals.

How to best integrate further natural maerials such as these into health care? I contend that we, in the aromatherapy, essential oils and natural plant actives fields, can fuil our own desire to assist in wellness programs through: careful choice of properly validated materials; close attention to manner of administration of these plant actives; scrupulous adherence to factual data; and support of research projects which sho positive results in carefully chosen therapeutic situations. In the presentation, we will explore some of the possibilities, from an Australian perspective.

S6  Demystifying Essential Oil Chemistry - by Howard Freund PhD 

$12.00 Including Handout  Buy Now


There is a universal fear of learning chemistry. This is evident when aromatherapy students often fail to do well when it come time to take their certification exams. The reasons for this are many; among them are glaring gaps in basic scientific knowledge, lack of a systematic approach to teaching the subject, lack of teacher knowledge, especially in aromatherapy class settings and lack of appreciation fo the subject matter. Many aromatherapy teachers are ill prepared to teach the subject and do not know how to access valuable resources. In this lecture we will provide some helpful guidelines and ways to make the subject more accessible and enjoyable to all who find themselves teaching and studyng the chemistry of essential oils..

S8  Aromatherapy Trends in Spa and Skin Care - by Kris Wrede 

$12.00 Including Handout  Buy Now


I had been working over the past year with an integrative plastic surgeon, R. Daniel Ronel of Sante Fe, who this lecture is dedicated to. He unfortunately died in a car accident this spring. I thnk him so much for having faith in the power of esential oils and giving me the opportunity to use the oils on his clients for pre and post surgery blends. Some of the case studies are his patients, and a few are my clients that I have made scar blends for. I originally had some trepidation about the intensity of the scare that I had seen with the surgery patients. I also found tht many patients wanted a "quick fix" and were not so willing to put on the scar blend 2 to 3 times a day. This is absolutely essential if you want to see results.
