Using the Internet as an Aromatherapy Resource, as a way of accessing aromatherapy information, research and studies online. However, I also thought it was worth mentioning the value of the internet and the world wide web as a networking tool for aromatherapists. Where it was once only possible to connect locally with like-minded aromatherapists, it is now possible to connect with aromatherapists from all around the world and to share information - all without living your home in many instances! It doesn't matter if you are in Australia, up a mountain in Europe, or on the beach, if you can get an internet connection, you can connect with aromatherapists from all around the world!
Social networking sites such as Face Book and My Space, and the micro networking site, Twitter, have contriibuted greatly to the ease in which aromatherapists can share information. Learn about the different ways aromatherapy is used, and the different rules and regulations of different countries, by simply joining up with one of these networking tools. I currently have aromatherapy connections in Australia, across the U.S. and Canada, the U.K. and other parts of Europe simply through social networking on these social media web sites.
Although not as common or as popular as social networking, there are a few online aromatherapy forums, usually aimed at the beginner or hobbyist, through which you can connect with others in aromatherapy too. It is advisable to check the validity of information exchanged on these forums, but I have also picked up some useful tips and information, in addition to contributing my own experiences on these forums.
Most reputable aromatherapy organizations usually have a web site and/or a social networking page too, so you can often find links to aromatherapy articles and studies by signing up for these web sites or checking them regularly.
Of course, nothing replaces the face-to-face contact and interaction with other aromatherapists, but the world wide web has presented me with opportunities I would not have had in the past - and makes me feel less alone in the world with some much needed support from other aromatherapists!
