This book discusses calling upon angels and guides to help you in your life, the seven chakras, zodiac signs, planets, numbers, animals, colors, flowers etc. There is a quick reference to the history of using aromatherapy, and how one can use it to balance their life physically, emotionally, and spiritually. The object is to use the fragrance to help bring forth a memory, thus observing the past in order to move forward in your life.
For each oil mentioned you get the spiritual uses, mental uses, emotional uses, and physical uses.
A fruitful example is: The use of Holly to release fears of jealousy as well as your jealousy of others. Honeysuckle to observe the past and use the memories to move forward. Larch to amplify self-confidence and courage. Walnut for change and integration. Willow to forgive and forget past injuries.
The other stuff might prove favorable to someone else, but to me it's just 'fluffy bunny.'
The idea of this book is an interesting concept. I do however think that other books available may be much more handy in my opinion. This one is fluffy and a little too 'new age' for me.
This book was given as an advanced copy to review by NetGalley, my review is written with honesty and without any ties to the author. I did not receive any monetary gain from doing so.
