Detailed plant profiles provide guidance on the full benefits of a range of plants and include comprehensive details on how to grow and care for them in a home garden. Also included are recipes for restorative aromas, oils, sachets, teas, and more.

“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
