ACHS in Now An Approved Member of the International Federation of Essential Oils and Aroma Trades
We're now an approved member of the International Federation of Essential Oils and Aroma Trades (IFEAT). Membership in IFEAT further evidences our dedication to supporting sustainability and fair trade of essential oils and to providing comprehensive resources with the latest aromatherapy research for ACHS’s professional aromatherapy programs.
“IFEAT is an important organization for our industry,” says ACHS President Dorene Petersen, “because it fosters education about sustainable practices and emphasizes the importance of international communication and cooperation. IFEAT is at the forefront of any legislative regulatory changes that can affect the essential oil industry. Ensuring our students are up to date on this information is essential.”
“IFEAT conferences bring together industry leaders with a sincere dedication to protecting the health of our industry,” Dorene says. “It’s wonderful to be able to attend these conferences, learn from and talk with other industry experts, and to then share this information with ACHS students and other industry professionals. This active dialogue not only ensures the health of our industry, it reaffirms our global commitment to environmental stewardship.”
