Beautiful book. Chapter One opens with stories about the "singing forest" - a lovely idea. But there is advice on making body oils, cleansing the atmosphere of the home, cleansing the chakras, using music, sound, color, and reiki for healing, etc. Also a lot of interesting research on aromatic traditions. Both functional and interesting - worth the read.

This book delves head first into the connection between fragrance and spirituality. Useful for both the lay person and practitioner interested in aromatherapy and healing. One of my favorite reference books!
