Although aromatherapy most commonly centers around the use of essential oils and other volatile plant oils, Aromatherapy in the Kitchen emphasizes the use of commonly available, fresh culinary herbs. I am especially delighted at this focus in the book since cooking with essential oils can be unsafe for those not adequately familiar with essential oils and their safe use.

Although other books abound on cooking with herbs, Aromatherapy in the Kitchen is especially unique as it focuses on achieving specific aromatic and emotional results by preparing and enjoying delicious meals.

The authors say it well in the following paragraph:

"While cooking with herbs is nothing new, we wanted to bring the full sensory benefits of herbs, flowers and other essences into the kitchen in order to turn simple cooking into a complete aesthetic experience for the mind, body and spirit. Food preparation and feasting can and should involve all of our senses, so we decided to create a cuisine designed to influence mood using the principles of aromatherapy. Although traditional aromatherapy uses essential oils, we like to broaden this to include the practice of extracting essential oils directly into food through the preparation and cooking processes. The roots, leaves, stems, bark, flowers, seeds and fruit peels of whole aromatic plans contain the same essences used to make essential oils, and although less concentrated, they have the same therapeutic qualities."
