July 2, 2020 By Verena Grewenig
On 26.06 the second working group meeting of the working group Eifel of Aroma Forum International e.V. took place after a break in April caused by the coronavirus.
I was very pleased to welcome three new participants. There followed a short round of introductions of the individual participants, as well as the presentation of the activities and the procedure of the working group.
The new Aromareport No. 22 Aroma Care and Aromatherapy for Animals was presented and the current work of the association/ dates were reported.
This was followed by a PPP on the subject of the legal basis of aroma care based on the expert opinion of Dr. Stefanie Reinhart by the working group leadership. What are cosmetics, cosmetic products, essential oils as consumer goods, functional drugs, presentation drugs. How must these products be declared and who is allowed to mix and market them. What are the consequences of the EU Cosmetics Regulation on aroma care and what is a product safety assessment. For the working group participants who were not present, there will be a repeat meeting on this topic.
Since we would like to sew herbal pillows in December, it is desired by all working group participants to collect and dry herbs (mint, lemon balm, sage, meadowsweet, chamomile, lavender flowers, rose petals, yarrow, clary sage).
At the request of the group, the topic for our September date (Sept. 18, 2020) has been determined to be
Distillation in theory and practice.
