The Airmid Ambassador program is designed to bring together protectors of threatened medicinal and aromatic plants (MAPs), mammals, fungi and seaweed species used in aromatherapy, herbalism, perfumery, and cosmetics from around the world.

Because these species exist in numerous countries, and predominantly essential and carrier oils are being utilized worldwide, it is imperative that we have well-connected advocates working on the ground to help preserve these species and to promote their use among Indigenous communities.
