"The use of essential oils by consumers continues to rise, both as a separate commodity and indirectly through a large range of beauty-care and aromatherapy products. Individuals are increasingly aware of the importance, even necessity, of fragrance in their daily lives, regardless of what the source of that fragrance may be."
"Long neglected and denigrated through centuries of dualistic Western culture with its intrinsic body/mind split, the sense of smell seems to be coming back with an aromatic vengeance. As practitioners providing an important health-care service, we simply cannot ignore this burgeoning trend. When we see patients who are using essential oils in any number of different ways, we cannot help but ask ourselves, 'What exactly is this doing to their qi?'"
