When you walk past a rose bush, stop for a minute and inhale the cool, sweet fragrance, pause and feel that sense of total well-being; you have just experienced aromatherapy. When you chop herbs in the kitchen and the pungent scents tingle in your nose and make your mouth water, there it is again. Natural fragrances—contained in the roots, leaves, fruits, flowers, and wood of plants—have been recognized for thousands of years for their innate cleansing, healing, relaxing, and invigorating powers. Since antiquity, aromatic herbs and essences have been used as cosmetics, medicines, perfumes, and incense.

- The origins of aromatherapy
