Explore the time-honored tradition of extracted plant scents for enjoyment and well-being in the first offering of this class on aromatherapy. Humans have been using our sense of smell to heal for centuries. Learn the connections between the plant compounds that create delicious aromas and how they influence the human body. This class will use historical ethnobotany, plant chemistry and human physiology to examine how scents have been used to heal and how you can incorporate aromatherapy into your daily life.
