Welcome to Our New Blog!

This is a place where NAHA members and prospective members can come to learn about what's happening in our organization. As members, it is also YOUR blog, where you can share your ideas and experiences in regards to Aromatherapy.

The National Association for Holistic Aromatherapy (NAHA) is a non-profit organization that was formed in 1990, at a time when Aromatherapy was very new in the US. You can read more about the history of NAHA here: http://www.naha.org/history.htm

Over the past 18 years, NAHA has accomplished much in the advancement of true Aromatherapy, due entirely to dedicated volunteers who have a passion for Aromatherapy and educating the public on the safe and effective use of essential oils. NAHA is currently the largest professional organization for Aromatherapists in the United States, and the current Board and Directors are committed to creating a dynamic professional community amongst our members.

The blogs at the right belong to our members and Directors; please explore these blogs to learn more about Aromatherapy and what NAHA members are doing. If you are a NAHA member and would like your blog added, please contact us.

I'm looking for a suggestion for essential oils that would be good for tension headaches. And perhaps a few that I should stay away from. Thank you!

I am looking for the best aromatherapy to help create a peaceful place. I am with an organization called Friends Of the River and we have a realitively new community center building that has been restored to a very servicable building. However when it is used there is always negative energy in the room. Is there a scent that I can use during meeting to help create peace?

This blog looks very useful - I have bookmarked it so that I don't miss any posts.

Question for all: what constitutes food grade for essential oils? Is an oil food grade if it's USDA Organic? If it's not USDA organic, how can we be sure it's food grade?

Thanks for your input.

Looks great! And had no idea Frankincense was in the list of endangered material sources for essential oils ~ such an important plant!

I have been an holistic therapist for over 10 years and I love using essential oils in many different ways.

Some of the ways are around the house as air freshners, in cooking and for medicinal purposes.

I couldn't imagine my life without them and like many of you I also love helping others to feel well.

Love aromatherapy said...

Aromatherapy is not only wonderfully relaxing, but a widely under-appreciated therapy. Keep up the good work.

Although the use of aromotherapy has been around for thousands of years. It has now found a new lease of life. More and more people are understanding the benefits in this stressful world that we all share.
