Description

Functional Group Theory isn’t perfect – but it isn’t antiquated either. Functional groups still play an important role in understanding the chemistry and therapeutic action of essential oil components. In this 1.25-hour presentation, Dr. Tim Miller reviews the functional group theory model, focusing on its limitations and past misinterpretations in aromatherapy, while postulating on its modern-day relevance. Armed with plenty of evidenced-based research,  he has revised the use of this system so that it more accurately represents aromatherapy chemistry and therapeutic action, and makes an otherwise obscure theory not only more accessible, but clinically applicable.

In true Dr. Tim fashion, this course presents a great case for how we can still utilize this model as a foundation for learning the chemistry of essential oils, with a heavy hand of his infectious enthusiasm for aromachemistry, and a healthy dose of levity along the way.

Learning Objectives

  • Investigate the question of functional groups influencing therapeutic action, and the possibility of generalized categories of distinction
  • Review applicable concepts of AromaChemistry as it pertains to Functional Group Theory
  • Illuminate clinical manifestations of chemical groups
