In Berlin the working group aromatherapy met on 28.04., corona-conditioned again online. Two new “real Berliners” were welcomed, furthermore the participants from the other regions of Germany and also from Switzerland introduced themselves – a colorfulness that virtuality of course gives us as a gift.

In order to also pick up the new participants, the work and dates of the association until the Aroma Congress 2022 were first presented and discussed. Then we discussed current studies on aromatherapy in the Covid-19 area, such as.
