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.

It gets its name from the pre-Christian Celtic Bealtaine, which... read this article
