Featured Chemaroma Q&A Discussion
Dr. Bill Kurtin discusses the importance of knowing about the science behind the Essential Oils (below).
Chemaroma is a unique educational website that explores and shares helpful information on the chemistry of essential oils, their history and origins, and their applications for body, mind and spirit. We offer our information, much of it free, to individuals, organizations and community groups.
ChemAroma was founded in 2006 by biochemist Dr. Bill Kurtin and artist/aromatherapist Lyn Belisle and provides information through lectures, seminars and online classes to both institutions and the private sector.
Our information is research-based and practical. We focus particularly on enhancing the quality of life for older health-conscious adults, for caregivers and hospice patients and workers, and for massage/physical therapists who want to be sensitive to the needs of the ever-growing older sector of our population.
We welcome your feedback and assistance in raising the awareness of the research-based effectiveness of essential oils and aromatherapy.
