The Fragrant Mind falls into three parts.
Part one presents a fascinating background to the subject and explains how essential oils work with the brain.
Part Two shows how essential oils can enhance emotional well-being and promote positive feelings. It also includes a practical A-Z section which advises on a wide range of emotional problems, from stress and depression to moodiness and insomnia.
Part Three introduces a whole new concept in aromatherapy - personality enhancement - and explains the particular characteristics of individual essential oils and how they can be matched to human personality types. You can find out for example whether you are a Floral, Herbie, Rootie, Woodie, Fruitie or Seedie type, and create your own tailor-made personality blends.
