I have been following Elizabeth Jones for over a decade now and admire her pioneering efforts and really consider her a trailblazer in the medical aromatherapy movement. She is an advocate of using therapeutic-grade essential oils for integrative medicine. Her company Elizabeth Van Buren, Inc., is an aromatherapy company where essential oils purchased are of the purest and highest quality and are used successfully not only in many alternative health treatments by holistic therapists, but also used by nurses and hospices.
What I find so fascinating about Elizabeth when I interviewed her is that her company has been providing aromatherapists, nurses, hospitals, massage schools, hospices, spas and estheticians with pure and therapeutic-grade essential oils since 1983. She also founded the College of Botanical Healing Arts (COBHA) in 1997 and has served as director and primary instructor since its inception. What sets COBHA apart from other aromatherapy courses, is that it offers a comprehensive 390-hour program and COBHA is the only aromatherapy college in California that is certified by the California Bureau for Private Postsecondary and Vocational Education and is the only 300+ hour certification aromatherapy program in the United States.
The movement towards medical aromatherapy has been fostered by Elizabeth’s pioneering efforts through her college (COBHA) and Elizabeth Van Buren Essential Oil company. In her 30 years of aromatherapy education as a leading educator, healer and formulator, she has provided many opportunities in the field of medicine for nurses and for holistic therapists to use aromatherapy in a medical setting. The time will come in the not too distant future when it will be just as normal to hear of going in for a medical aromatherapy treatment or essential oil therapy just as a visit to the doctor is. The future of aromatherapy is looking brighter with a heightened sense of excitement with so much more to come.
Elizabeth has had a lot of influence on not only me and others who have studied under her, but on well-known aromatherapists around the world. She has come out with a new book, Awaken to Healing Fragrance, an incredible work of history about aromatherapy which chronicles the likes of female historical figures such as Cleopatra and Elizabeth I. Elizabeth also shares with the reader something dear to my heart, the exploration of the future of essential oil therapy and how this therapy will be integrated into traditional medical settings in the United States.
She shares valuable information on aromatherapy and historical roots that will enlighten any reader exploring this field for the first time or one who is already an aromatherapy expert. So buy her new book today by clicking here.
