Aromatherapy has been growing steadily in popularity over the last couple of decades. But if you think it’s all about scented candles and mood music, think again. Aromatherapy has a long, rich history that’s fascinating to discover, especially for those of us with a nose for the natural. Awaken to Healing Fragrance: The Power of Essential Oil Therapy brings you not only a lustrous history, but an educational look into what makes this healing art so effective and so enduring through the ages.
The book begins with the true accounts of 11 prominent women throughout history who relied heavily on essential oils. Cleopatra, the women of the Old and New Testaments, even Queen Elizabeth I, are brought back to life with Jones’ remarkable ability to make history sparkle.
Following this section, laypeople and practitioners alike will learn what makes essential oils actually work, and how they affect and heal us. Even case studies are shared, which will inspire readers to add more aromatherapy into their own lives.
