While the information available remains
limited it is probable that in the not so distant
future that will change. Recently, and especially in the 1990ís, the number of organization
or groups studying the effects of aromatherapy is dramatically growing. But, many
organizations are examining the use of aromatheapy in cancer treatment and not stress
reduction. These are a few centers that have announced the beginning or continuation of
aromatherapy research: The Lynda Jackson Macmillan Centre for Cancer Support and
Information; The Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center (http://www.mskcc.org); The
Monell Chemical Senses Center (http://www.monell.org); The Research Council for
Complementary Medicine; The Burton Goldbery Group; and The Tisserand Institute.
