Jan has not written a new non fiction book for a while, we are so excited with this new aromatherapy book which looks at the birth and growth of aromatherapy. We asked Jan to explain his thoughts behind this book ad he says:
“Aroma moves me, changes my mood, heals me, if I allow it to do so. Consciously tune into the plant consciousness, its fragrance which is its signature.”
There are no words to describe this encounter and the experience is individual or personal. It is just feeling, sensing.
Every aroma and fragrance created is a journey and an adventure into the memory or the unknown. They are pathways to one’s own emotion. Fragrance, perfume, odour will provide two primary responses; evoke or provoke.
Pleasure is a basic way of reinforcing the human system and so aroma is associated with wellbeing, comfort, ease and relaxation; the much sought after, in the twenty first century homeostasis or equilibrium.
Nature, ecology, organics, the world of aromatic plants, olfaction, aromatherapy, and perfume has been Jan Kuśmirek’s work province and life study for over forty years.
