Editorial Reviews

Review

"With the increasing interest in aromatherapy and flurry of books coming out, it is refreshing to see an in depth approach to its effects on the mind and emotions. It is a pleasure to see such a well written and well researched book." (The American Herb Association)

From the Back Cover

AROMATHERAPY / HOLISTIC HEALTH

Aromatic oils have been used for thousands of years not only for their fragrance but for culinary, therapeutic, ritual, and spiritual purposes. Drawing on research, clinical studies, and their own professional experience, Peter and Kate Damian explore aromatherapy and reveal how it can be used to enhance almost every aspect of our lives--from aromatic lavender massage and tea tree oil baths to the treatment of high blood pressure and depression with ylang ylang.

The only sense extending directly into the brain, smell is an essential component of our mood, memory, and appetite, and a key to understanding sexual compatibility and the child protection instinct of a new mother. But which specific scents are effective in therapeutic and ritual settings? How do men and women differ in their responses to odors? What is the relationship between plant essences and the human aura?

With a thorough exposition of the ancient practice of aromatics in China, India, Persia, and Egypt and a modern scientific understanding of the psychology of scent, Aromatherapy: Scent and Psyche is the perfect guide to mastering the use of essential oils. Included are profiles for forty-four essential oils and specific instructions for creating essential oil blends.

PETER and KATE DAMIAN are the founders of Windrose Aromatics, Inc., a supplier of pure essential oils and aromatic body care products. Together they conduct Windrose Workshops, offering training in practical and theoretical applications of essential oils, and they are charter members of the American Society for Phytotherapy and Aromatherapy, International. Peter Damian is the author of The Twelve Healers of the Zodiac: The Astrology Handbook of the Bach Flower Remedies. Kate Damian travels internationally as a professional aromatherapist and massage practitioner.

I most sincerely recommend this work to anyone interested in learning more about the magic of Aromas! Not only do the co-athors Peter and Kate Damian discuss the various attributes of many scents, they also tread deep into the inner workings of the human olfactory system. The research they have gathered is worthy of any major medical journal in both content and depth. I personally am involved in various research in the field of the effects of aromas on the human condition and found their book insightful and quite original.
The writting style is simple to follow and filled with those wonderful little phrases that we can carry with us to any social function. I myself have been quoting my favorites parts on quite a regular basis!
Sincerely, if you are interested in Aromatherapy, Incense, Perfume, or even just curious as to how scents have such a powerful response in us as human beings, then I whole heartedly suggest you read this text!
Keep well and remember to stop and SMELL the roses!

One of my biggest pet peaves is when I start reading a book and find out that the book has more of an agenda than it is informative. This book should be called "Aromatherapy vs. Perfumery" or "How industries are using and testing synthetic fragrances with the intent of behavioral control." I already know about all that. I was more interested "using [true] essential oils for physical and emotional well-being," as the cover of the book states.

I purchased this book because I am currently taking a course in Aromatherapy, and it was one of the books they recommended. I am truly happy that I did it is very informative and very interesting. Once I started reading it I could not put it down until I finished it. I took it to the gym with me and made sure to read it through my workout. It made my time go by so fast. I know that I will read it again, and will purchase more books written by this Author.
I am sure that anyone would benefit from reading it also.

This book seemed too general for my needs as a psychotherapist or perhaps I've read too many aromatherapy books with rigorous research on the effectiveness (or lack of effectiveness) of essential oils for treating specific mental/emotional conditions.
