Clinical Aromatherapy & Aromatic Medicine are advanced branches of Aromatherapy – the controlled use of aromatic botanicals to promote spiritual, psychological, and physical wellbeing. These botanicals include essential oils, hydrosols, CO2 extracts, absolutes, resinoids, and rectified essential oils. In formulations they may be combined with botanical extracts, nut & seed butters & oils, and pharmaceutical-grade emulsifiers for safe and effective dosing. The pharmacology of each component, from active ingredient to excipient, is carefully considered for the best outcome for the individual client.
A wellness plan incorporating Clinical Aromatherapy and/or Aromatic Medicine may include dermal, internal, or inhaled formulations. Examples include:
- Aqueous nebulizer solutions for direct inhalation targeting the upper or lower respiratory tract.
- Rectal suppositories targeting the lower gastrointestinal tract or the lower respiratory tract.
- Vaginal pessaries targeting the perineum, vagina, cervix, and lower urinary tract.
- Personal aromasticks targeting the olfactory, limbic, and upper respiratory tract.
- Digestive bitters, aperitifs, digestifs, gelatin capsules targeting the esophagus, stomach, and liver.
- Enteric-coated capsules targeting the small intestines and colon.
- Aqueous, and oil cosmetic preparations targeting the integumentary and musculoskeletal systems.
- Environmental fragrancing for viral, fungal, and bacterial control.
