Overview

Magical Aromatherapy by Scott Cunningham combines the modern science of aromatherapy with the ancient science of magical perfumery. Together they make a powerful system that can improve your life and bring you what you want. Already, over 170,000 people have found out how useful this book can be. You can, too!
In these pages you'll discover how to use aromas from fresh and dried herbs and essential oils to make changes in your life. You can use them to bring you love, peace, protection, psychic awareness, happiness, joy, and more.
You'll discover that the dried seeds of celery can be used to enhance psychic awareness or bring restful sleep. The fresh flowers of gardenia can be used for peace, love, and spirituality. Honeysuckle can be used for weight loss and prosperity. This book includes full instructions on how to use these three and ninety-seven more aromatics!
If you do magical rituals, you'll also be thankful for information such as the ruling planet and element for each of the herbs. Also given are aromas of the seasons, lunar cycles, days of the week, and zodiacal signs. You'll also learn how to make, store, and use essential oils. Cunningham also includes addresses of essential oil distributors; fresh and dried plant distributors; and aromatherapy organizations and publications. There's even a glossary and a great annotated bibliography, as well as a history of magical perfumery.
Even if you've never done any magic in your life, you can use this book. For example, to attract love, "visualize yourself freely giving and receiving it as you smell the crushed fruits" of the caraway. You can repeat this several times a day, especially if you are worrying about your current relationship.
And if you've been doing rituals for a long time, you will find this book to be invaluable. The correspondences and information will allow you to use aromatics to enhance any of your rituals. This is truly a book anyone can use.

Read an Excerpt

People talk a lot about the importance of certain books. Frankly, in spite of the fact that more than 170,000 people have bought Scott Cunningham's Magical Aromatherapy, people don't talk about this being an important book. Well, I think it is very remarkable and I want to share my reasons.
Aleister Crowley defined magic as an art and a science. Ancient magical arts included mathematics, geometry, astronomy, chemistry, and more. Today they are sciences. It could legitimately be claimed that since the magic of the past is the science of today, then the magic of today may be the science of tomorrow. But is there any indication of such conversions?
Absolutely. One of the most ancient of magical sciences is magical perfumery. It has long been recognized that certain scents produce certain responses in your physical, mental, and emotional bodies. It also can affect the environment. Scientists used to scoff at this "superstition."
Not any more.
Every day, more and more scientific reports show that certain scents, sometimes ones that seem highly unlikely, have strong physical effects on people. You've probably seen the reports in the news. Has science verified every part of magical perfumery? No, it has not. But the basic idea has been proven, and an entire science called aromatherapy has developed.
Magical Aromatherapy is the first book to bridge the gap and unite the modern science with the ancient magical art. This is further proof of the validity of magic. And it is something that you can discover and use immediately. Scott includes full instructions based on traditional lore for 100 aromatics. The associations he gives for them will allow you to use these scents to enhance virtually any ritual you might need.
I would like to invite you to take part in this nascent science. You will find it can improve your life easily and effectively. And all you need to begin is this clear, important, and potent book.
