All have experienced the connection between aroma and the emotional mind. Information taken in through the sense of smell has
the power to transport the mind to past memories or recall specific people. Aromas can trigger emotional reactions.
Therefore, aroma therapy has the power to bring about different states of mind. For example, some aromas will calm while others stimulate.
Some are beneficial to cooling an intense mind while others will ground an anxious one. Using the sense of smell in healing has a simple
and immediate effect on the mind. Aroma therapy comes in the form of incense, flower essences and essential oils. The use of scented
massage oils, salves, candles and sprays are some examples of aroma therapy.
