Aromatherapy Case Study Collection
The Aromatherapy Research Collaboration is an alliance of international researchers with a common goal to research essential oil use, and aromatherapy practice, around the world. Researchers include Joy Bowles, PhD, and Tamara Agnew, PhD, both from Australia, and Christy Hires, MPH and Jessie Hawkins, PhD, from the United States.
The collaboration originated through requests for case study collection, analysis, and publication. Upon embarking on this monumental project, the research team realized that there is no existing research identifying the specializations and practice norms within the field.
This practice and outcomes project was developed to meet that need, with the goal of laying the groundwork required to advance to future phases, which include collection, analysis, and dissemination of aromatherapy case studies.
About this Project
Phase One: Completed 2020
This phase involves taking a global inventory of the practice of aromatherapy in various English-speaking countries.
This is accomplished through a cross sectional study of aromatherapy practitioners using a survey which our team developed and validated.
Phase Two: Anticipated State Date: 2021
Once our team has established the state of the professional practice, we will begin recruiting professionals who are willing to gather and report case studies.
