Scent is a powerful bridge between ourselves and nature. We find it in those moments when we pick a garden rose and inhale its perfume, or collect a sprig of mint and rub it between our fingers, or breathe in the scent of a bitter orange tree in full bloom. All else stops as we strive to capture the scent: elusive, yet remarkably beautiful.

A Scented Life

A Scented Life is a delightful voyage of discovery into the world of aromatherapy and the use of pure essential oil for home and personal use. It explores the power of scent and the many ways to use essential oils for pleasure, to increase confidence, support meditation practice, combat fatigue and above all de-stress. It traces the evolution of aromatic substances and their use as incense, medicine, perfume and ritual.

Beautiful, creative and accessible
