Botanica2022 is the sixth edition of an international and independent conference series that showcases excellence in clinical aromatherapy and related herbal therapeutics. It brings together researchers, aromatherapists, herbal medicine practitioners, allied health professionals, aromatic and medicinal plant growers, distillers and suppliers from around the world for three full days of education, trade show, networking and rich collaborations.

Botanica is the brainchild of aromatherapist Rhiannon Lewis, director of Essential Oil Resource Consultants, host of the International Clinical Aromatherapy Network and editor of the International Journal of Clinical Aromatherapy. The first conference edition – botanica2012 – came about as a result of her desire to create an independent professional platform where both clinical aromatherapy and herbal medicine could affirm and celebrate their mutual plant connections – thereby enhancing communication between these two distinct but related disciplines. Since then, every two years, the event has continued to expand in terms of its content and international reach and is now established as the leading clinical aromatherapy conference worldwide.
