For centuries, people have worn perfumed water and oils to entice, set or even change a mood. Men and women still do this today. Such aromas are not only pleasant to smell, but also can enhance passion, creativity and calmness.

Feng shui can incorporate aromatherapy with pleasing results. One can place certain fragrances in a particular area of a home or office to create additional benefits.

A popular way to use aromatherapy is with essential oils — either in a simmering pot or with aroma rings that are placed around a standard light bulb. Incense sticks also can be used.

The benefits of aromatherapy can be taken outdoors, too. Fill a clay pot with soil and small pebbles, add two incense sticks and let the aroma filter the air.
