Is it possible for any algebra (for example commutative) to construct an associative enveloping algebra as we do for Lie algebras?

If so, can I get any reference?

    $\begingroup$ There is an associative enveloping algebra for every non-associative algebra, see wikipedia, section 5.2. $\endgroup$ – Dietrich Burde Feb 11 at 16:00
