Science behind healing with aromatic plant medicine
Nature is miraculous. In addition to the mycorrhizal connections underground that connect the roots of plants and transfer needed nutrients among them, another means of plant communication has been discovered in past years by scientists. Though ancient peoples have likely known this for millennia.
Trees and plants communicate with each other in mysterious ways. One of the ways in which they send warnings and information to other plants is through aroma. Pheromones are released by a tree after it is attacked, or munched on by hungry animals, beetles, or fungus. These pheromones are carried on the breeze to other plants which pick up on the scent and raise up their defenses through the production of toxins, anti-fungal resins, and other chemical compounds.
