Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

People talk a lot about the importance of certain books. Frankly, in spite of the fact that more than 170,000 people have bought Scott Cunningham's Magical Aromatherapy, people don't talk about this being an important book. Well, I think it is very remarkable and I want to share my reasons.
Aleister Crowley defined magic as an art and a science. Ancient magical arts included mathematics, geometry, astronomy, chemistry, and more. Today they are sciences. It could legitimately be claimed that since the magic of the past is the science of today, then the magic of today may be the science of tomorrow. But is there any indication of such conversions?
Absolutely. One of the most ancient of magical sciences is magical perfumery. It has long been recognized that certain scents produce certain responses in your physical, mental, and emotional bodies. It also can affect the environment. Scientists used to scoff at this "superstition."
Not any more.
Every day, more and more scientific reports show that certain scents, sometimes ones that seem highly unlikely, have strong physical effects on people. You've probably seen the reports in the news. Has science verified every part of magical perfumery? No, it has not. But the basic idea has been proven, and an entire science called aromatherapy has developed.
Magical Aromatherapy is the first book to bridge the gap and unite the modern science with the ancient magical art. This is further proof of the validity of magic. And it is something that you can discover and use immediately. Scott includes full instructions based on traditional lore for 100 aromatics. The associations he gives for them will allow you to use these scents to enhance virtually any ritual you might need.
I would like to invite you to take part in this nascent science. You will find it can improve your life easily and effectively. And all you need to begin is this clear, important, and potent book.

Format: Paperback
This is the only book I know of that deals with the magical use of aromatherapy. Scott Cunningham gives a huge list on diffrent scents. He tells you if it should be used as an oil, dried herb, seed, or fresh. He also tells you the precautions of each herb/seed/flower/oil. he also gives you an idea of how little or how much these oils will cost you. He also gives you the planetary power of each of these scents. Also in the back of this book you will find a few recipes of diffrent oil blends to use in your aromatherapy magic. This is a great book that deals on the subject of aromatherapy for magic.

Format: Paperback
Book is a great reference of scents. It begins with the use of scent and how inhaling certain herbs and essential oils can effect our moods and outcomes in life. It has different methods and techniques to gain specific results with aromatherapy. Includes recommended aromas for days of the week, seasons, lunar cycles, elements, planets, and zodiac. It also contains a list of oil and plant distributers for your harder to find items. Also includes a pretty big reference guide of the aromas and their uses. Very handy to have around. I know I will be referring to it time and again.

Format: Paperback
This book is a must have for any magical cabinet. The book not only tells you what scents to use for your spells but also things to be aware of (ie. toxic oils, natural v. sinthetic, etc.) if your are going to buy only one Aromatherapy book this should be it!!!!

Format: Paperback
For the price and the size this book wins hands down. It is a very thorough little book, and would be a great addition to anybody's magickal library. It is a wonderful section that is a mini encyclodedia of different plants and herbs used for aromatherapy, which lists the parts of plant used, ruling planet, and magickal uses. I do however, like any specific topic, think you should also read and refer to other sources if you are serious about persuing something. However, this is an excellent choice for a start.

Format: Paperback
Yes, and I mean it, if you want concentrated information about the uses of essence in ritual, you are looking for this book. It has all the neccessary and no unneccessary information, and I believe that this book is a stand-alone, even without the more extended books on aromatotherapy by Cunningham. You will find information about herbs, dried, fresh, aromas and pure essences, and when and how they can be used, and to what end. This little marvel has it all!

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I must disagree with the person who said that this is the only book on aromatherapy you will ever need, I have quite a few and most are more informative. The only information that you do not find in the standard aromatherapy book is the correspondance section, (Lunar, day, astrological, elemental, etc). I found this book to be less informative then Cunningham's "The complete Book of Incense, oils, and brews". But as a starter aromatherapy book or supplement to his other books it would be a good choice.
