A student and two alumni from Maharishi University of Management recently deepened their knowledge by taking a two-week advanced course in Maharishi Aroma Therapy Consultant Training taught in the Brahmasthan of India.
Tara Schmid, a Maharishi Vedic Science PhD student, and alumni Ayala Melzer and Barbara Ringwalt studied the use of aroma oils and integrated the knowledge of aroma therapy with Ayurveda and Yoga.
The course was taught by Rosie Geelvink, PhD, Vaidya Pratmesh Vyas, and Vaidya Arora.
Aromatics have been used for religious, medicinal, and cosmetic purposes for thousands of years, in the ancient culture of India—as found in Vedic Literature—in ancient China, Egypt, Babylon, and in the Greek and Roman civilizations up to the Middle Ages, and found a revival in the 20th century with the French chemist Gattefosse and the French doctor Valnet, the fathers of modern aromatherapy.
Historic records give us detailed descriptions of how medicinal plants have been used for fumigations, pills, powders, ointments and infused oils and give us interesting recipes for their use for the cure of many diseases.
A project is currently underway by the course participants to gather research on the effectiveness of aroma therapy in various areas of illness. This will strengthen the understanding of the range and effectiveness of aroma therapy for everyone.
