Imagine kneading away an aching back with the lingering scent of lavender and geranium. Masking the signs of aging with a soothing nightly toner combining the eight essential oils of youth. Shaking off the blues by relaxing in an aromatic bath spiked with herbal oils and honey.

Imagine taking away almost any pain, finding relief from almost any condition, rejuvenating your body, and lifting you spirit through a mystical ancient therapy that heals by nourishing your senses of taste, smell, and touch.

Aromatherapy has been around for centuries, but only in the last decade has it become recognized as a proven mainstream healing technique. In this book, Valerie Gennari Cooksley offers soothing solutions - special blends of baths, masks, oils, teas, tonics, lotions, scrubs, sprays, even soups - to help aid the healing process. Every one of these aromatherapy solutions is 100% pleasurable. For common nuisances such as bites, colds, stings, and hiccups, to more serious problems like asthma, arthritis, depression, and air pollution, Cooksley offers her special healing blends culled from more than 15 years of professional practice.

In addition, Cooksley demystifies this ancient art with modern examples of real life cures and offers a complete guide to using and blending essential oils for maximum benefit. She shows how anyone - whether professionally trained or not - can use the secrets of aromatherapy to achieve quick and lasting relief.
