Dr. Malte Hozzel

Malte Hozzel was born in Germany in 1944, and received his Ph.D. in 1979 from Heidelberg University in world literature and linguistics.

Dr. Hozzel is an internationally renowned author and lecturer and has given courses and spoken at countless congresses around the world on Aromatherapy, Yoga and meditation programs since 1972.

Over the years he and his wife have established a number of Meditation Centers and Retreat-Academies in Germany, France and Belgium, and published several articles and books on the collective transformation of modern society.

Dr. Hozzel has had two particular fascinations: Research into the effects of the meditation in society and research into the essential nature of plants. During this time essential oils became a major focus of his interest, and thus the seed for AYUS Essential Oils Intl. was planted. The company was formally established in 1990 in Germany, with its major essential oil line OSHADHI first being introduced in Europe, and from there to the United States and numerous overseas countries starting 1992.

Years of research in the field of Aromatherapy culminated in a selection of several hundred essential oils and many other herbal products. Over the years AYUS‘ products have become one of the world’s purest collection of essential oils, known particularly to experts for its wide range of rare species essential oils.

Dr. Hozzel’s knowledge of several languages helped him to establish personal contacts with many of his growers on all continents. He continues to personally select all the essential oils in the AYUS collection which today comprises several brands of essential oil lines distributed in 35 countries.

In 1992 Dr. Hozzel and his wife acquired a property of 150 acres in the UNESCO protected area of Mont Ventoux in High Provence, France and established the famous Aromatherapy and Seminar Center ORTO DE PROUVENCO.

Today, Dr. Hozzel focuses mainly on presenting the understanding of Holistic Aromatherapy globally and helping to spread the knowledge of Yoga and meditation in the West by giving courses and lectures as well as participating in a number of humanitarian projects which have the mission to raise the level of individual and collective consciousness in the world.

In the last 20 years he has given lectures and seminars all over the world: Germany, France, USA, Canada, Italy, Switzerland, Holland, Norway, UK, Belgium, Turkey, China, Taiwan, Japan, Peru, Mexico, Colombia, Brazil, India, Philippines, Morocco and Tunisia.
