Benoit Roger, PhD — Biography


Passionate about plants, Benoit works between research, analysis and production/transformation of essential oil and plant extracts for almost fifteen years.

He got his PhD in natural products chemistry in France between the University of Nice-Sophia Antipolis, historically close to the Grasses industry, and a renowned company in the south of France. Then he went to Canada (QC) for a post-doctoral internship and stayed to work with Laboratoire PhytoChemia.

He finally started AlChemia Solutions in collaboration with PhytoChemia where he develops small equipment for extraction and distillation at small to medium scale, gives consulting services as well as courses and workshops.

Benoit is the instructor for the Advanced Aromatherapy Science Program: Ecology and Pharmacology of Essential Oils from the Plant to the Clinic (coming soon).
