Aromatherapy & Subtle Energy Techniques combines two forms of healing, aromatherapy and subtle energy therapy for self-help and to help others. Throughout the text of this book, we use the term healing in its true sense. To “heal” is from the Anglo-Saxon word haelan, which means, to “make whole.”Though aromatherapy and subtle energy therapy each effectively stands alone in their therapeutic ability, they are extraordinary when used together. Aromatherapy is the art and science of using the therapeutic properties of aromatic, concentrated plant extracts known essential oils to promote health and well-being.
