THIS IS HOBBY HELP SERIES FOR SENIORS.
I am compiling a series of things to do - what to do to counter loneliness, in addition, how to go about it. The book about Healing 2 became too big. As it is inconvenient to upload and download big files, I have arranged the info in different files for each system Learn to Heal Part 1 Covers Energy healing, Auras, Chakras, Reiki, Pranic Healing, Islamic and Christian Healing. All of which need no or light touch. This second group also uses Energy to heal, but this needs some touching or body manipulation. There are eight systems covered: 1. Acupressure 2. Aromatherapy 3. Crystal Therapy 4. Magnet Therapy 5. Music Therapy 6. Self massage 7. Sujok 8. Taichi and qigong There is a separate book for each. This one is about Aromatherapy. I have tested all the links mentioned. As on May 2010, all links are secure, correct and working. You should look for more as you surf. You may find many that will suit to your needs. This is just a first step.

Please feel free to share this with anyone you like.

Aromatherapy
Introduction We are all aware of Smells, both good - aromas and fragrances and bad – stenches and stinks. Smells act powerfully on the memory area of the brain. They evoke memories of things, people or places and remind us of related emotions. Smells are tiny molecules of liquid that float through the air. When inhaled, these molecules are absorbed in the blood and taken to the limbic system. Limbic system is the olfactory area of the brain and deals with a person's basic drives like hunger, thirst, memories, intuition, sleep, emotion and the like. Smells have been used in our lives to enhance our awareness. In devotional places there are incense sticks used to calm mind and aid meditation. Various fragrances were used for sensual pleasures and enhancing beauty. Smell of mangoes, spices makes mouth water. Smell of disinfectants reminds us of hospitals or Doctors. Aromatherapy has taken this concept to a logical inference and claim that we can control memories and emotions by using particular aromas.
