Introduction to Clinical Aromatherapy: Evidence-based Essential Oils in the Clinical Setting

Essential oil therapy (aromatherapy) is “the art and science of utilizing naturally extracted aromatic essences from plants to balance, harmonize, and promote the health of body and mind.” Essential oils have historically been used to help address health issues. Aromatherapy has gained popularity as a safe and cost-effective complementary therapy. Please join us as we learn more about the evidence based utilization of essential oils in nursing and personal well-being.

Note: Essential oils will be used at this conference. If you are “scent-sensitive,” attendance is not advised.
