Aromatherapy and precious aromatics traces its roots back to Egypt several thousand years ago. As a lover of all glorious aromatics, I have wished that I could travel back in time to ancient Egypt and experience their heavenly creations firsthand. Although the small photograph on this page doesn't do the cover justice, the dust jacket gives us a wonderful hint at the beauty of the interior of the book. Complete with many outstanding photographs, Sacred Luxuries lets us explore the perfumes, cosmetics and other aromatics created during this fascinating era.

The history of aromatics, perfumes and cosmetics are covered in detail, and ancient botanicals are described. The included photographs of ancient jars, bottles, boxes that stored perfumes and cosmetics are extraordinary. Other amazing related architectural artifacts are also pictured. The illustrations help us to understand and appreciate the influence the Egyptians of this era created. Recipes are also included throughout many chapters.
