This module from the 200-Hour Aromatherapy Certificate Program is designed to give a comprehensive overview of aromatics for the integumentary system. In the anatomy and physiology portion we will explore the skin with an eye towards supporting it in times of trauma and dis-ease. In the pharmacology portion we will look at topical applications through the lens of dermal absorption. The materia medica portion will cover the properties of lipid plant oils and butters. The materia aromatica will explore the chemistry of select aromatics. To round out this module students will receive a foundational overview of cosmeceutical formulating - creating their own skincare formulations to achieve desired outcomes.
