Dear Aroma News Subscribers,

Welcome to the first 2002 edition of Aroma News!

As we venture forth into the as yet unknown landscape of the coming year, all of us at Aroma News are focused on continuing to provide you, our enthusiastic readers, with an informative, educational, and of course, entertaining read!

As always, we invite your feedback and suggestions regarding both our site, and our newsletter topics. We thrive on your recommendations, which bring a human side to what can at times be an impersonal medium. As such, we try to incorporate as many of your requests as possible, so please, keep them coming!

Since our initial launch in mid-2001, A World of Aromatherapy has grown into the internet's most popular website on this popular subject. This has been your accomplishment as much as our own, and we thank you for your willingness to guide our hand.

This month's feature article, entitled Aromatherapy Energetics - An Oriental Approach, is a wonderful study of eastern medicine's perspective on the effects of this popular alternative treatment. With a range of information on the use of specific oils for particular conditions, the article by Gabriel Mojay has a little something for everyone...

Our featured shop for January is our founding, and sister site, A World of Good Health. We invite you to browse their selection of premium quality Chinese formulas, aromatherapy oils, lotions, and gift sets!

And of course, we invite you to take a moment to review all regular Aroma News features, including the recipe, & oil of the month, and this month's subscriber winner, noted later in this edition.

Remember to make the most of your days, and to give of yourself with abandon,

The Aroma News Editors

Aromatherapy - An Oriental Approach       by Gabriel Mojay

Marguerite Maury was one of aromatherapy’s foremost pioneers. She was a woman whose profound understanding of people made her realize that the mysterious qualities of an individual are inseparable from their unique ones. It is not surprising, therefore, that she, too, turned to the East in search of an intuitive and naturalistic way of comprehending the human spirit.

It may at first sight seems strange to apply to aromatherapy (a therapeutic approach that seems so distinctly European) the theories of an ancient medical tradition that originated in China. That is, until we reflect that vital energy, whether we we call it Qi or Dynameis, is as universal to humanity as are aromatic plants to the planet...

Recipe of the Month:

Ashli writes:

"When I finish showering and turn off the water, I put about 8 drops of black spruce oil in my hands and rub it all over, especially on my neck and back. I let it stay on for about a minute, breathing the aroma, letting it awaken my mind while it improves my breathing and circulation. Then I rinse quickly with cool water. The scent is fresh, invigorating and it lifts the spirit!"

Juniper oil is known for its analgesic, astringent, and diuretic qualities. It is said to be cleansing and refreshing, with a sweet, woody scent.
