Fort Wayne,Indiana (PR MediaRelease) July 22, 2015

Essential oil devotees and the inquisitive alike are encouraged to attend the Science Tour presentation on Tuesday, August 4, at 7 p.m. in IPFW’s Rhinehart Music Center, with a VIP program beginning at 6 p.m. World-renowned essential oils experts Dr. Daniel Pénoël, M.D., and Pierre Franchomme, Ph.D., will be joined on stage by Dr. Joshua Plant, Ph.D., vice president of research for Zija International, to discuss the research and science behind the use of clinical grade essential oils as a sound means toward preventative health maintenance. With just three stops in the United States for the Science Tour, this will be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity – at no charge – for Fort Wayne area residents to learn from the world’s authorities on this topic.

While the general session program begins at 7 p.m., VIP guests will have a chance to experience an extended program beginning at 6 p.m., and may also submit questions about the health benefits of essential oils for Drs. Pénoël, Franchomme and Plant to address. Interested parties who would like to join the VIP program should contact Ann Dahm at Both sessions are free of charge, but have limited seating. Reservations are required for the VIP program, with doors opening at 5:15 p.m. The general session program begins at 7 p.m. General session guests are encouraged to make reservations, and to arrive by 6:15 to ensure seating.

Dr. Joshua Plant graduated from Harvard Medical School with a Ph.D. in Biomedical Sciences. He has completed fellowships at both the National Institutes of Health and Huntsman Cancer Institute, and is an advocate for natural health and wellness. As vice president of research at Zija International, Dr. Plant is using his experience and talents to explore new areas of science. Dr. Daniel Pénoël, a medical doctor based in Aouste Sur Sye, near Orange, France, and Pierre Franchomme, a French biochemist, pharmacologist and former lecturer for phytotherapy at the Faculty of Medicine and Pharmacy of Besançon, have worked together for the past 25 years, initially cataloging hundreds of different properties of essential oils and how they are used in a clinical environment. Their early work was based on bringing together the experiences of Dr. Franchomme in the laboratory and the clinical experiences of Dr. Pénoël in administering essential oils to his patients. Thanks to the work of these three modern-day pioneers, the healing power of essential oils has been brought to the foreground of the science community for the betterment of the community at large.
