The official BCAOA Journal, Aroma Wisdom, is an educational resource published by the British Columbia Alliance Of Aromatherapy (BCAOA) four times a year. It is released in electronic format to our members for free, and is available for sale to the worldwide public through or by ordering a printed copy through our website Store. Published in March, June, September and December, the Journal focuses on issues important to the aromatherapy community and provides a forum for information exchange for providers of alternative health care modalities. All submissions are kindly requested by the submission deadlines noted below. The journal is available approximately 3 weeks after submission deadlines.

Professional aromatherapists assess a client’s needs physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. To address the client as a whole, treatment might go beyond the use of essential oils alone and could include herbs, homeopathic remedies, flower essences, supplements and advice on nutrition, exercise and techniques for relaxation and stress reduction, or spiritual guidance based on the practitioner’s training and expertise. When they believe it is necessary, a practitioner might also recommend a client seek complementary care from another provider or advice from an integrative practitioner.

Therefore, to support our community, Aroma Wisdom offers information and resources for the professional aromatherapist in varying areas of interest. Each quarterly issue contains current articles or research related to the field of aromatherapy; articles and information regarding related healing modalities such as herbalism, TCM, shamanism and others; articles on other aspects of aromatherapy, building and maintaining a business, industry news, and more; recipes for blends and products; book, seminar, workshop, course or product reviews; and event information, as well as additional tools and resources.
