The Editor's Corner -- February 15, 2002

Welcome to the latest edition of Aromatherapy News!

Our long time subscribers will note that we have made some significant changes to the layout of Aromatherapy News this edition. Our goal was to design a format that would allow us to present our readers with more of the information they want, in a format that is fully featured, and hopefully, visually appealing!

We have incorporated all features from our previous editions, while adding a few new ones that we sincerely hope you will find of value. Feel free to provide us with any feedback you care to offer, via the 'contact the editors' link at the bottom of this section. We continue to be focused on ensuring your enjoyment of this publication, and are always open to suggestions.

One quick note regarding the A World of Aromatherapy site - our recently introduced 'Aromatherapy Room' discussion board has been upgraded to ensure more consistent accessibility. After receiving some notes of concern from our visitors regarding the reliability of the previous service, we have moved the discussion area to another provider, one with a history of reliability in this area. As an added bonus, the 'Aromatherapy Room' now features live chat, as well as standard bulletin board postings, so please take a moment to visit, and share, via the link below!

Our featured article this edition is offered in response to a large demand for information on how Aromatherapy can be used to assist with all aspects of pregnancy, and childbirth. The article, 'Aromatherapy and Child Bearing', by Marlene Ericksen is an exceptional resource for any mother to be, and is included below.

As always, we thank both our long time, and new subscribers for joining us at Aromatherapy News. We look forward to continuing to be your primary source for premium quality, interesting aromatherapy news, and information.

Until next time,
