These are but two examples of the incredible work East-West School for Herbal and Aromatic Studies graduates have accomplished.

Many of our graduates have come to study aromatherapy simply for their own family or self, to improve their ability to care for themselves and others during times of illness and to support their overall commitment to maintaining health and preventing dis-‘ease’. With an increase in the desire to reduce the use of over the counter medicines, aromatherapy and herbs offers an amazing 21st century medicine chest.

The continued growth in the interest in complementary and alternative approaches to health has lead to an increased demand for therapeutic aromatherapy based products. Along with this interest is a growth in demand for ‘green’ and sustainable products. This interest has guided the demand for truly natural skincare products, cleaning products and other natural based products that support health. Aromatherapy is able to fulfill much of this demand and interest through a variety of creative outlets.
