The Botanical Names of Aromatic Plants


Aromatherapists know that it is important to recognize the botanical names of the plants they use in practice. Botanical names prevent confusion because many common names refer to more than one botanical species or very similar common names are used for different species. This folio discusses the basics of plant taxonomy and provides a table of the correct botanical names of aromatic plants commonly used in aromatherapy and natural perfume blending. Use this table for reference with other folios from Plant Spirit Life or when you purchase essential oils or hydrosols.
