Gill Farrer-Halls explores ways of increasing intuitive awareness in aromatherapy practice
Gill Farrer-Halls is the author of eighteen published non-fiction books in the Mind Body Spirit genre, including The Aromatherapy Bible. A practising aromatherapist, she has been a Principal Teacher and Examiner with the International Federation of Aromatherapists for over 20 years.
One unwholesome consequence of the introduction of valuable
scientific principles into aromatherapy has been a turning away
from the no less valuable intuitive principles that once
characterized it. Veteran aromatherapist and author Gill
Farrer-Halls wields her seasoned pen to redress this imbalance,
reintroducing neglected esoteric elements and revitalizing a
practice that was on its way to losing its spirit. Anyone who
values scent and sensibility will profit from this fine book. -- Dr
Robert Svoboda, author, lecturer and Ayurvedic doctor
In aromatherapy, intuition is a quality that is frequently overlooked and sometimes dismissed. Gill Farrer-Halls, an experienced therapist and mentor, explores how meditation can be instrumental in harnessing our intuitive potential. Here, we learn how to form a deep rapport with essential oils and absolutes, and bring mindfulness to our massage practice. This book allows us to perceive aromatherapy from an alternative perspective; it infuses our experience with magic and insight, persuading us that intuitive practice is a path to both personal and professional transformation. -- Jennifer Peace Rhind PhD, Chartered Biologist, Fellow of the Higher Education Academy, writer, author and essential oils consultant
Gill Farrer-Hall contributes a fresh approach to aromatherapy in this intriguing book exploring the potential of the human spirit in relation to aromatics.
