Secrets of Aromatherapy is a thorough introduction to the therapeutic uses of essential oils, and provides an in-depth insight into the use of natural fragrances to improve relaxation and general well-being. From what to expect in a session to the history of oils employed as healing agents, discover the many ways aromatherapy can enhance your health and happiness.

When you walk past a rose bush, stop for a minute and inhale the cool, sweet fragrance, pause and feel that sense of total well-being; you have just experienced aromatherapy. When you chop herbs in the kitchen and the pungent scents tingle in your nose and make your mouth water, there it is again. Natural fragrances—contained in the roots, leaves, fruits, flowers, and wood of plants—have been recognized for thousands of years for their innate cleansing, healing, relaxing, and invigorating powers. Since antiquity, aromatic herbs and essences have been used as cosmetics, medicines, perfumes, and incense.

  • The origins of aromatherapy
  • Basic therapeutic guidelines
