Aromatherapy often has associations of being that thing practised by weird ladies or that thing that useless thing that they did hundreds of years ago. Well, my mother happens to be one of those 'weird ladies' who practice aromatherapy. She can find a 'cure' for anything in her box full of tiny bottles of oil. As a studier of science, it is fair to say I have always been somewhat sceptical of my mother's passion. In this talk, I attempt to determine the extent of the usefulness of aromatherapy. I hope you enjoy!

Mia is a lover of history who believes that many a lesson can be learnt from the past. However, she is also a studier of science, with a particular interest in outer space.
