From the cover: Scent has the power to move us in many different ways: an invigorating inhalation of mint-fresh toothpaste or lemon-scented soap early in the morning; the heady, relaxing scent of sandalwood oil in a steaming bath; the mouthwatering aroma of rosemary, thyme, and fennel stalks on the barbecue; the aphrodisiac potency of honeysuckle and jasmine in a twilit summer garden. All the feelings evoked by these different scents can be induced by the creative use of herbs plants that for thousands of years have been highly valued in the garden for their beauty and in the home for the many uses to which their leaves, flowers, stems, and roots can be put.
The Crabtree & Evelyn Fragrant Herbal looks for the first time at herbs purely from the point of view of their mood-enhancing, sensuous qualities and the ways in which they can be used to enhance the home. The reader will find ideas for using herbs in the bedroom and bathroom to create a fresh start to the day; for creating potpourris and garlands whose mingled scents welcome guests into the home and for burning oils to enhance concentration or to relax at the end of a tiring day. In addition, the book includes seventy-five recipes for delicious meals and soothing herbal teas, as well as gardening ideas and plans for twelve herb gardens designed with scent in mind, and an illustrated A to Z of more than 120 herbs with details of their aromatic properties, uses, and cultivation.
