Notes and News February 22

While citing several research items that show that aromatherapy is effective, they take a rather skeptical attitude towards marketing hype for products such as Smiley or the Lavender Bunny.
  • Free Aromatherapy Workshop for Breast Cancer Patients, Survivors Tuesday, March 6, 7 pm to 8:30 pm at Adelphi University in Garden City, NY, registration required 516.877.4325
  • Seems the lavender/tea tree gynecomastia misconnection is even inserting itself into mundane, but mostly harmless aromatherapy advise to the public.  Scroll down to the lavender section.
  • Aromatherapy Science: Aromatherapy Research on the web -  database of use to aromatherapists.
  • The Enfant Terrible of Contemporary Perfumery, Christophe Laudamiel, takes on educating your nose in public schools.  Great idea!
  • Aromas of rosemary and lavender essential oils differenttially effect cognition and mood in healthy adults says study performed at the Human Cognitive Neuroscience Unit Division of Psychology, University of Northumbria, Newcastle.
