Welcome to Aromatherapy Thymes Magazine

Aromatherapythymes11 A new magazine, Aromatherapy Thymes, has published its inaugural issue, and has been reviewed on the MediaPost publication MagazineRack. The review is somewhat mixed, and it's clear the reviewer is not familiar with aromatherapy. Aromatherapy Thymes is to be published quarterly by Willoughby Publications in Los Angeles.

We don't have a copy of the magazine yet, so we can't do our own review. The web site has been up for some time (since 1999 according to Alexa) and I seem to remember getting advertising information at least two years ago. As far as I know, this is the only print based Aromatherapy magazine currently being published in the US. Aromatic Thymes ceased publication in 2000, the NAHA Aromatherapy Journal last published in mid 2006.

The magazine joins other worldwide print publications such as Aromatherapy Today, the International Journal of Aromatherapy, Simply Essential, Aromascents, and In Essence, and the online Aromatic Sage. UPDATE: Other existing publications found: International Journal of Clinical Aromatherapy, International Journal of Essential Oil Therapeutics.

Putting out an aromatherapy magazine has to be a labor of love--it's a lot of work, there aren't that many readers among the general public, and the complications of distribution, finding articles, dealing with publishers, selling advertising, etc. are a daunting task.

Congratulations to the publishers of Aromatherapy Thymes for finally getting it going, and we wish you a long and happy publishing career.
