In The Healing Power of Scent, aromatherapist and author Ellen Rowland dives deep into the most mysterious and ephemeral of the five senses scent and explores how we can use our own unique responses to the smells we find in the world around us for spiritual and emotional healing. Starting from a place of inquisitiveness, the science of scent is unpacked in accessible terms as its healing power is revealed through its molecular makeup. The practical application of scent comes next, with a series of exercises, recipes and prompts to help the reader develop their own scent diary and understanding of the scents that mean the most to them. The recipes include blends of oils for the reader to try, with instructions for other products to add scent to a create a life filled with a healing power that makes the reader feels safe and supported. The Healing Power of Scent explores the emotional aspects of scent and how it interplays with associations, and looks closely at how certain scents can actually have a physical impact on us, and how that impact can be harnessed for healing. Combined, these approaches result in a truly holistic approach to the healing power of scent.
