"This book was born through many years of labor, experience, and research by clinical psychologist, Dr. Benjamin Perkus, whom I have known for more than a decade. It is a well-established fact that, when inhaled, essential oils directly enter our limbic system, our emotional brain, where traumatic and upsetting experiences of your life are noted and catalogued into your body’s memory.

Unpleasant or disturbing memories may be temporarily lost to your conscious mind, but they are permanently etched into your subconscious and cellular memory. Traumatic experiences recorded within our consciousness, exist as living, buried memories. When unresolved, they can create obstacles to your life’s happiness, judgement, and success in many areas—domestic, personal, social, and career-wise.

Dr. Perkus has created a means, through his Aroma Freedom Technique (AFT), whereby you, by yourself or with the assistance of another, can discover your inner thoughts and feelings that block your success and personal fulfillment, on any and all levels—professionally, domestically, financially, or personally.

This is accomplished by directly addressing your limbic brain through the vehicle of certain aromas. Through Dr. Perkus’ AFT method, given in this book,  you can be clear and free from the hidden bondages that limit your success in life.

In the gift of this book, Dr. Perkus shares his well-refined and proven Aroma Freedom Technique for you to employ or receive for greater happiness, social and domestic harmony, personal accomplishment and fulfillment.

Thank you, Dr. Perkus, for the love and insight you have preserved in this book, and offer to the world.”

“This book is well written and very action oriented. Dr. Perkus combined his many years of clinical experience with the knowledge gained from the scientific world to provide an excellent very practical self-help guide to deal with emotions. The book presents an easy to understand and easy to implement plan for those who wish to improve their feelings and previous experiences. Everyone will be able to follow the examples given in the book. It is also remarkable that one can use just a very limited number of essential oil blends to open the gate to the inner self.

It is no surprise that Dr. Perkus selected the individual oils or blends the way he did since scientific studies have clearly shown that these selected essential oils do in fact influence the activity in certain areas of the brain. This is completely novel approach to heal bad emotions and memories. It is a very nice addition to what Gary Young, the creator of these essential oil blends, had in mind when he used his experience, the knowledge about the chemistry of the oils, and the scientific knowledge to influence and support a healthy emotional state. I recommend this book to everyone dealing with some demons from the past.”

“Dr. Perkus has incorporated his extensive knowledge and experience in psychotherapy with the power of essential oil blends specifically designed to speak to the amygdala for release of traumatic emotions. I applaud his efforts and will recommend his work to all my students who seriously want to help themselves and others live a more balanced and healthy emotional life.”
