This book will carry you away to a world of exquisite, enchanting scents. Various fragrances affect our moods, may stimulate and excite us, bring us calmness and harmony, bewitch and inspire or even heal. Since ancient times essential oils and incense have been employed in healing, for seduction and for religious rituals. Today we are as captivated by the magic of lovely scents and as irresistibly moved by them as ever. The effects that essential oils have may vary greatly. This book particularly addresses their subtle influences, but also presents and describes the plants from which they are obtained.
