About the Author
Marine biologist Jeanne Rose grew up the skeptical daughter of an herb-loving French-Canadian/Puerto Rican family. Graduate studies in Hawaii and California introduced her to historical and contemporary herb use. A terrible car accident provided the time and space for Jeanne to further her research and write this book. She now runs New Age Creations and the Institute of Aromatic Studies.
"Jeanne Rose draws together here the culmination of twenty-five years of experience and research in the art and practice of aromatherapy. Her information is invaluable to those familiar with the subject as well as the layman. There is a rapidly growing interest in aromatherapy in this country, and Jeanne's book is certain to become the ultimate 'bible' in this field. I have incorporated aromatherapy into my entire line of cosmetic fragrances and am grateful to have a complete and accurate resource book at my fingertips."- Zia Wesley-Hosford
