Taking place September 12-15, 2014 at Bastyr University in Seattle, Washington, the theme of this year’s World of Aromatherapy conference is “Beyond Aromatics: Exploring Holistic Approaches to Self-Care and Professional Practice.”

“Aromatherapy continues to grow in popularity as a holistic health modality in both the complementary alternative medicine and integrative medicine communities,” says ACHS Dorene Petersen, ACHS Founder and President. “ACHS is thrilled to be able to be a Gold Leaf Sponsor of the World of Aromatherapy conference. NAHA is an exceptional leader in the aromatherapy industry, consistently advancing high-quality knowledge of essential oils and aromatic botanicals, and we’re delighted to support and share that mission.”

The World of Aromatherapy Conference is an ideal opportunity for ACHS students and alumni, and aromatherapy enthusiasts to learn more about essential oils and the growing field of clinical aromatherapy. NAHA says the purpose of the conference is “to provide opportunities for aromatherapists, massage therapists, naturopaths, reflexologists, complimentary health practitioners, students and individuals interested in aromatherapy to meet, network, share, and learn about holistic aromatherapy approaches in practice and for self care.” Attendees will be able to network with industry professionals and experts, explore the trade show, and attend lectures presented by leaders in the aromatherapy field.
