Ancient Aromatherapy

Alexis, fragment 190 Kock, as quoted by Athenaeus, Deipnosophistae 2.46 a-b (tr. Charles Burton Gulick):
He anoints his nostrils with perfume; a highly important element of health is to put good odours to the brain.

ἐναλείφεται τὰς ῥῖνας· ὑγιείας μέρος
μέγιστον ὀσμὰς ἐγκεφάλῳ χρηστὰς ποιεῖν.
