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!

Leadership Message July 2021

Hello Members,

I hope your summer is going well and you are enjoying the warm weather and maybe some vacation time, too. 

We, here at AIA are busy.  The committees are doing wonderful work, growing and expanding AIA.  It has been so encouraging to see the growth of AIA during my 3.5 years as president.  Our members are volunteering, getting involved and making a difference.  We have many new benefits we plan on rolling out in the coming year. 


We found out, according to the Federal Department of Education we can offer Continuing Education (CE) Credits.  At the July 8th meeting the board approved changing from Continuing Professional Development (CPD) to Continuing Education (CE) credits.  CEs are more widely recognized and will be a great benefit for those seeking CE credits.  Look for the transition to the new designation on our website and the July Educational Webinar certificates. Of course, our upcoming conference will offer aromatherapy CE credits, and we are applying for as well as Nursing and Massage Therapy credits.
