Our Commitment to Research
As a trusted consumer resource, The North American Essential Oil and Aromatherapy Experts are committed to keeping our readers informed by providing evidence-based information.
In addition to aromatherapy news, regulation information and the Essential Oil Database, The North American Essential Oil and Aromatherapy Experts conduct our own timely research to reflect consumer choices, industry trends and to provide a greater understanding of the therapeutic benefits of essential oils.
What Type of Research Do We Conduct?
The aim of our independent, essential oil research is to address emerging questions in the industry, promote education and support the growing interest in essential oils as a form of Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM).
As an industry leader, we are committed to providing accurate information on the safe use of essential oils. We provide a monthly analysis of the latest essential oil research. This data is compiled and published to provide up-to-date insights on consumer habits; an asset to academics, vendors and essential oil advocates.
Why is Essential Oil Research Necessary?
Aromatherapy, and the use of essential oils, is a quickly-growing area of Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM). As the demand for natural health products increases, a growing body of scientific research is required. Further, increased understanding around intended uses, and accessible safety information should be at the forefront of industry practices.
Essential oils are highly concentrated, volatile oils which contain active ingredients that can influence the human body. Without proper research, we cannot understand the full range of benefits or side effects of essential oils.
By conducting our own research, and analyzing credible, peer-reviewed information we can promote education, further research and a better collective understanding of essential oils.
