Uncommon Scents is a pre-production essential oil and aromatherapy documentary that will feature the aromatherapy educators and experts who hold the industry to its highest standard.
Executive Producer and Director Angela Jensen Ehmke and Executive Producer and Writer Kristina Bauer received their aromatherapy certifications from Aromahead Institute, School of Essential Oil Studies. Kristina will complete her Masters of Science from American College of Healthcare Sciences (ACHS) after Uncommon Scents is completed.
With their combined film, writing and aromatherapy education and experience, Jensen Ehmke and Bauer are uniquely qualified to use the documentary medium to educate and enlighten viewers to the realistic benefits and applications of essential oils and holistic aromatherapy. Their energy, enthusiasm and dedication to Uncommon Scents is apparent and contagious.
Jensen Ehmke and Bauer have arranged for aromatherapy educators and experts who hold the industry to its highest standard to participate in Uncommon Scents. I'm honored to have been asked to participate, and am humbled to be amongst so many of the educators, authors and experts that I hold in such profound esteem. You can view a complete list of the participants and interviewees that will be contributing to the film here: http://www.uncommonscentsmovie.com/#!participants/nfcc1.
Once filmed, Jensen Ehmke and Bauer will strive to procure significant distribution for the documentary, including but not limited to Netflix and Hulu which have subscriber bases in the millions. As a full length aromatherapy documentary, Uncommon Scents has the potential to go far in expanding our educational reach and helping to dispel the inaccuracies and myths surrounding essential oil usage and aromatherapy.
This will be an incredible opportunity for us, as a community of passionate and caring aromatherapy and essential oil professionals and enthusiasts, to ensure that essential oil usage and aromatherapy is covered accurately and responsibly.
But time is limited and your help is needed...
