Clinical Aromatherapists 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 the needs of clinical aromatherapists 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 the majority of articles therein contributing valuable information concerning the chosen topic.

Two issues are published per year (end of June and end of December). 

The themes for 2018 (Issue 13 volumes 1&2) are Oncology and Palliative care

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

In 2014 the IJCA transitioned to e-format. All issues from 2006 forward are available as downloadable files (PDF).
