Review“Kathi Keville’s beautifully illustrated aromatic garden and infectious love of plants and distillation are redolent in these pages, while her enviable depth of knowledge about all things, such as how plants communicate, makes her book an intellectual delight to savor. Every page is a journey into the nature of nature.” —Robert Tisserand, author and essential oil researcher
“Beautifully done and immensely helpful.” —Jeanne Rose, author and executive director of the Aromatic Plant Project
“A breath of fresh aromatic air, artfully and tastily presented.” —Jim Duke, author of The Green Pharmacy
“Keville weaves references to studies about healing and invigorating smells into short cultural histories of facts and stats…Most admirably, Keville rises to the challenge of describing each scent (“Basil’s spicy clove scent, with its hint of mind and pepper, makes it delightfully sweet, hot, and sharp all at the same time”). With such rich descriptions, readers will long for the actual aroma.” —Publishers Weekly
