With over forty years of professional experience, Jeanne Rose is a pioneer in the field of holistic aromatherapy, and is a well respected aromatherapy author and educator.

Within 375 Essential Oils and Hydrosols, Jeanne Rose provides monographs (profiles/summaries) of many essential oils, hydrosols and other natural aromatics used in holistic aromatherapy. This 245-page book is a useful reference for locating summary information on numerous oils and hydrosols. The essays and information on such topics as botanical names (and how they are derived) add to the interest of this important publication.

From the Back Cover

In this major field guide to a wide range of essential oils and hydrosols, Jeanne Rose profiles 375 different substances sued in aromatherapy according to botanical family, habit and growth, chemical components, actions, and uses. Rose, a leading herbalist involved in aromatherapy, adds historical lore from Chinese alchemy and botany as well as western botanical sources, enhancing what we know about these substances. Rose describes medical properties and uses, and provides new information about hydrosols, what she calls "the homeopathy of aromatherapy," a true synergism of herbalism and aromatherapy.

Included are Jeanne Rose's essays on evergreens, lavender, chamomile, jasmine, essential oils of the Old Testament, descriptions of distilleries and the process of distillation, as well as a marvelous and thorough listing of all the many kinds of thyme.
