 Aromatherapy Intangibles Study

Blinded, placebo-controlled clinical trial to evaluate the “intangible” benefits of aromatherapy on human health.

The Alliance of International Aromatherapists is pleased to be a sponsor for the “Intangibles” study being done by the Franklin Health Research Foundation (FHRF) on those therapeutic effects of essential oils that you haven’t been able to quite put your finger on—until now.

Please join us in furthering the advance of essential oil science by donating today. We have committed to $25,000. We can’t raise it without you. Together, we can help the FHRF to verify some of the therapeutic effects of essential oils that have hitherto been unquantifiable.

With the psychological measurement tools that have been developed, mood states related to essential oil effects such as grounding, invigorating, calming, or uplifting, can be measured and analyzed to confirm their validity.

Donate today to help bring them to light!
