What is Clinical Aromatherapy?

There are lots of different interpretations of it.  My understanding of the meaning of clinical aromatherapy is based on how the therapist works with the oils and not on where they work with the oils. So for me a clinical aromatherapist blends essential oils, vegetable oils and infused oils, using their knowledge of chemistry, to effect a change in presenting symptoms and pathologies.
