'Aromahology' - the impact of plant alcohols
Many students taking up a study of aromatherapy experience at least six months enthusiasm. Its best to get the reading and rereading done in this period and the student will become the master. Some aromaholics remain hopelessly hooked until retirement as professional aromatherapists, complimentary therapists or educators.
Besides their use in the flavourings and perfumes industry plant alcohols distilled into their essential oils have preservative, antifungal, anti viral and antibacterial effects. This is a favourite topic for university study.
