Aromatree provides a comprehensive framework to classify the complex relationships that exist between the individual oils and the different parts of a plant – the roots and rhizomes, resins, woods, seeds, fruits, leaves and flowers. The aromatree started out as a tool to facilitate the learning of aromatherapy in an enjoyable and informative way. Over the years it has evolved to reflect the complexity and diversity of aromatherapy. In the aromatree, we will examine the relationships and patterns between the botany of the plant, traditional folklore, symbolism and mythology, aroma, chemistry, pharmacology, essential oil safety, our psyche, our personality, subtle aromatherapy, the energetics according to traditional Chinese medicine and Ayurveda, and blending tips. The aromatree embraces all aspects of essential oils. Whether you are a beginning your journey into aromatherapy, a professional aromatherapist or an educator and whatever your background or interest in aromatherapy, you will gain an incredible insight into the importance of essential oils in promote a holistic and integrative approach to health and wellbeing.
