Aromatherapy Scent and Psyche is a fascinating 244-page text for the more serious student of aromatherapy. It is a good source for those seeking more detailed information including the background of aromatherapy, how olfaction (the sense of smell) works, and how aromatherapy can effect the emotions. This book is more scientific in its presentation and may prove somewhat confusing or intimidating to the beginner. Having said that, I had purchased this book several years ago as one of my first aromatherapy texts and it did fascinate me greatly.
