Rhiannon Harris is organizing an extraordinary conference in Dublin, Ireland–the Botanica 2012 Conference.
The conference dates are September 7-10th, 2012.
This is a quote from the official website, to give you a sense of what the Botanica 2012 Conference has to offer us.
“The field of clinical aromatherapy is a rapidly evolving profession in many countries around the world. This continuing integration into health care settings has reached a point where it is now imperative to share information, present results and showcase the potential of essential oils and related herbal remedies across a range of clinical environments.
“To date there has been no formal international gathering of experts within northern Europe to share these findings, forge new treatment strategies and plan future integration. In European countries such as France and Germany, aromatherapy is viewed as a branch of herbal medicine, also known as phytotherapy–with much shared tradition and experience in the use of herbal preparations such as essential oils, vegetable oils, hydrolats and herbal tinctures.
“Elsewhere in the world, the two professions are often regarded as distinct and self contained; here there is a growing need for greater collaboration between herbalists and aromatherapists to maximize therapeutic efficacy in their respective specialties.
“It is with this awareness that botanica2012 was conceived: to be a celebration of plant therapeutics and clinical aromatherapy, bringing together all professionals who work with plants and their extracts in the therapeutic setting.”
