Aromatherapy Research & the Synergy of Constituents
Essential oils are both complex and multi-functional, simultaneously acting as, for example, antibiotics and antidepressants. They contain many important bioactive constituents, and this complexity allows for both synergistic and antagonistic effects. Synergy is a manifestation of the efficiency of nature, combining substances for an enhanced outcome. Clinical aspects covered include radiation damage (whether from therapeutic or accidental exposure) skin safety, bedsores & wound healing, antibiotic-resistant infections, preventive measures for sun damage and skin cancer, and pain of different origins. Many clinical studies are referred to in detail. The seminar is for those with some previous knowledge of essential oils and aromatherapy, and who want to take their understanding to a deeper level. Most of the seminar is lecture format with slides.
