One unwholesome consequence of the introduction of valuable scientific principles into aromatherapy has been a turning away from the no less valuable intuitive principles that once characterized it. Veteran aromatherapist and author Gill Farrer-Halls wields her seasoned pen to redress this imbalance, reintroducing neglected esoteric elements and revitalizing a practice that was on its way to losing its spirit. Anyone who values scent and sensibility will profit from this fine book.

In aromatherapy, intuition is a quality that is frequently overlooked and sometimes dismissed. Gill Farrer-Halls, an experienced therapist and mentor, explores how meditation can be instrumental in harnessing our intuitive potential. Here, we learn how to form a deep rapport with essential oils and absolutes, and bring mindfulness to our massage practice. This book allows us to perceive aromatherapy from an alternative perspective; it infuses our experience with magic and insight, persuading us that intuitive practice is a path to both personal and professional transformation.
