Advanced Aromatherapy Science, Module 3: Aromatic Plants

Instructor: Marco Valussi, BSc (Hons.) Herbal Medicine

Plants have been and continue to be a significant part of our medicinal resources, both directly and indirectly, shaping our Materia Medica. This module explores the relationship between biological evolution and the medicinal properties of plants, distinguishing between volatile organic compounds released by plants and essential oils obtained through distillation, and investigates theories on the production of secondary metabolites and their ecological functions.

In this module, you will: 

  • Learn how biological evolution helps us understand the dominant role of plants in medicine.
  • Understand the distinction between what plants produce and release into the environment and what we obtain through distillation.
  • Explore theories regarding why plants produce secondary metabolites or natural products and their role in the ecosystem.
  • Investigate connections between ecological functions of plant VOCs and the use of essential oils for medicinal purposes.

This module provides 3.5 CE hours and includes 8 lessons.
