When educating others about essential oils, it is important to rely on research to back up the education you're providing. Quality research on the effectiveness of essential oils is being done by incredible organizations such as these!

The FDA has deemed Essential Oils under Code of Federal Regulations Title 21, as substances Generally Regarded as Safe.

Academic Journals
Academic Journals
Academic Journals is a broad-based publisher of peer-reviewed open access journals. Academic Journals currently publishes 111 open access journals covering art and humanities, engineering, medical science, social sciences, biological sciences, physical sciences and agricultural sciences.

Mission
Our mission is to accelerate the dissemination of knowledge through the publication of high quality research articles using the open access model.
Open Access is a publication model that enables the dissemination of research articles to the global community without restriction through the internet. Thus, all articles published under open access can be accessed by anyone with internet connection. Academic Journals strongly supports the Open Access initiative. Abstracts and full texts of all articles published by Academic Journals are freely accessible to everyone immediately after publication.
We strongly believe that the open access model will spur research across the world especially in developing nations, as researchers gain unrestricted access to high quality research articles.

The Association for the International Research of Aromatic Science and Education (AIRASE) is a non-profit 501(c)(3) membership organization dedicated to promoting scientific validation of essential oils for their global standardization for home, health care, and medical uses. To this end, AIRASE will actively promote, sponsor, and support research on the healing properties of essential oils. Second, AIRASE will solicit donations from the public to fund this research. Third, AIRASE will disseminate information gleaned from this research to the public.

Mission Statement

AIRASE has a threefold mission:

·         First, AIRASE will promote research to establish the scientific validity for the standardization of essential oils for home, health care, and medical uses.
·         Second, AIRASE intends to fund research through contributions and membership fees.
·         Third, AIRASE intends to globally inform the public on research results and research validity concerning the therapeutic uses and healing properties of essential oils–thus providing hope, health, and well being now and for future generations.

Our Vision

Our vision is to heal the peoples of the world through promoting the scientific validity of essential oils as an alternative medicine form and disseminating information globally on the scientifically proven therapeutic uses of essential oils for health and wellness.

PubMed
PubMed

PubMed is a free search engine accessing primarily the MEDLINE database of references and abstracts on life sciences and biomedical topics. The United States National Library of Medicine (NLM) at theNational Institutes of Health maintains the database as part of the Entrez system of information retrieval.

From 1971 to 1997, MEDLINE online access to the MEDLARS Online computerized database had been primarily through institutional facilities, such as university libraries. PubMed, first released in January 1996, ushered in the era of private, free, home- and office-based MEDLINE searching. The PubMed system was offered free to the public in June 1997, when MEDLINE searches via the Web were demonstrated, in a ceremony, by Vice President Al Gore.

 

REO Foundation
REO Foundation

Vision:

A healthy, vibrant and hope-filled world where scientific evidence has bridged the divide between natural treatment modalities and conventional medical practice.

Mission:

REO Foundation will identify support for and location of a facility whose purpose is to provide scientific evidence of the health-promoting properties of integrative, non-chemically prepared herbal extracts (essential oils). This evidence will have a global impact on clinical outcomes in a host of disease states. These clinical outcomes will be obtained by the establishment of a national and/or international center designated for this research, and by directly funding studies that offer evidentiary support of the Foundation’s vision. In addition, REO Foundation will publicize these outcomes, making them accessible not only to those suffering, but also to their advocates and medical professionals making life-altering decisions on their behalf.
