Our Distinction

The IEWS offers a distinct aromatic program unlike any other in North America. Most, or perhaps all, of the aromatic schools in North America are based on the British system of applying essential oils. This has become the world standard for use in Aromatherapy. It primarily teaches the use of essential oils through massage or topical uses only. The British system also teaches the importance of diluting oils with a carrier oil.

Instead, IEWS primarily teaches the French system. This includes two major procedures unlike the British system:

1. The oral ingestion of essential oils for various health concerns, and
2. The direct topical use of essentials oils without a carrier oil. Obviously this can only be achieved with organic, therapeutic-grade AFNOR* standard essential oils.
3. IEWS has chosen a top quality company with impeccable standards in order to adhere to the internal and neat application of essential oils. This company is world recognized for its therapeutic AFNOR and EC standards - hence our choice to use Young Living Essential Oils.

*AFNOR - IEWS has chosen oils that meet the international standards for therapeutic-grade essential oils. There are generally two standards that are recognized at a world level and referred to most often. They are ISO (International Standards Organization) and AFNOR (Association French Normalization Organization Regulation) standards.

The AFNOR standards state the percentages of certain chemical constituents that must be present for an essential oil to be considered therapeutic grade. In order to gain the AFNOR stamp of approval, the oils must be tested by the French laboratories. A third standard considered to be the "gold standard" now for essential oils is the EC (European Community) standard.
