Aromatherapy Properties: (Uses) Coffee (Arabian Green Bean) has a multitude of possible uses. Amongst these: Coffee can be burned as a room deodorizer; coffee is an excellent anti-oxidant.

Aromatic Description: The earliest cultivated species of coffee tree and still the most widely grown. It produces approximately 70% of the world's coffee, and is dramatically superior in cup quality to the other principal commercial coffee species, Coffea canephora or Robusta. All fine, specialty, and fancy coffees come from Coffea Arabica trees. Coffee Essential Oil smells just like a fresh brewed pot of coffee. It is both warming and invigorating.

Blends well with: Coffee Essential Oil is best appreciated when used independently

History: The history surrounding coffee is vast, and exceeds the space given this section. However, there remain a few particularly interesting pieces of information. An Islamic monk was vexed by his inability to stay awake during his prayers. One day he saw a goat shepherd dancing with his goats and was told a specific bean caused the happiness. Convinced that Mohammed had sent him this herb as a gift to keep him awake, the monastery was thereafter called the home of the Wakeful Monks, as they would drink coffee as they prayed. (A similar legend exists in China regarding tea.) African warriors would mix mashed coffee berries with animal fat, roll them into balls, and eat them before battle. Brazil is the world's largest producer of coffee. All of Latin America's coffee industry emerged from one tree in a Dutch botanical garden. The name Coffee comes from Caffa, an Abyssinian province.
