The International Journal of Clinical Aromatherapy was launched in 2004 in response to the demands of practitioners working with essential oils in healthcare and related professions. These therapists often use a range of application methods, styles and doses that may differ from the more traditional styles such as aromatherapy massage. Healthcare professionals also require a source of evidence based information in order to successfully integrate clinical aromatherapy within orthodox practice.

The IJCA meets these needs by presenting solid practitioner-orientated and evidence-based information in a professional format.

Unlike any other aromatherapy journal currently available, each issue has a specific theme, with all articles therein contributing valuable information concerning the chosen topic. Two issues are published per year.

All articles are peer reviewed and referenced where possible. Members of the editorial board are all highly experienced in the essential oil field.

The IJCA is currently transitioning to an e-journal for 2012.

“The IJCA is the only authorative peer-reviewed publication on the practice of modern aromatherapy. To have your work published in this journal adds credibility to your work and brings it to the attention of aromatherapists all over the world.”

The International Journal of Clinical Aromatherapy is unique in that it is written by practitioners for practitioners of clinical aromatherapy. This emerging specialised field is steadily growing and its continued development is dependent on the participation of all clinical aromatherapists. This includes you!

The Editorial Committee invites you to contribute to the Journal by sharing your experiences, questions and challenges within the pages of the IJCA. This can be in the form of letters, case studies or articles.
Please see the author’s guidelines to assist your submission.

Getting your work into print is a challenging and rewarding process. Here is what some previous contributors to the IJCA have to say...
