This designation is
designed to assist aromatherapy professionals so that they may legally practice
aromatherapy in the USA and Canada. This is becoming more and more difficult
Alimentarius became the law in both countries.
Provincial licensing boards for massage therapy, allopathic medicine and
psychology are becoming more and more aggressive in filing charges against
natural therapies professionals for practicing their profession without a
license. Their goal, quite simply, is to take control of aromatherapy and
make it illegal for non-licensed people to practice this profession.
