Aromatic Medicine, also known as Scientific Aromatherapy, Medical Aromatherapy or Aromatology, refers primarily to the use of essential oils administered via a range of clinical therapeutic applications -- including topical and oral ingestion.

High grade and specific therapeutic oils are used by highly-qualified practitioners. Much of Western Europe incorporates aromatherapy into mainstream medicine as an antiseptic, antiviral, antifungal and/or antibacterial agent -- much more than other parts of the world. We now have an Advanced Diploma in Aromatic Medicine here in Australia.

As Dr Penoel from France said, "In my country, we've given millions and millions of clinical treatments with essential oils."

It is from this medical application of essential oils that the term "Aromatic Medicine" was derived. This medical model includes internal applications, by ingestion, injection, topically (undiluted), rectally, and vaginally. There is a Facebook group created by Rémy Lejeune's students; anyone interested in aromatic and medicinal herbs can join and share here (in French so use an online translator).
