Welcome to the 2023 Summer edition (10.2) of Aromatika magazine.

Dear Aromatic and Herbal friends,

We are excited to bring an Interview with two of our "Giants" in the Aromatherapy industry.

As Summer has begun in the Northern Hemisphere we wish you days filled with sunshine, an abundance from nature and your gardens, hopefully, time to enjoy the lazy days of summer!

INTERVIEW WITH JEANNE ROSE By Michelle Ensley Jeanne Rose started her herbalist-aromatherapy career in 1969. She has been writing books, formulating herbal and aromatherapy products and educating people for close to 55 years. "I grow plants, watch them grow, smell, distil, and use them daily. I have an attachment to the ecology of the plant and its terroir, and when these are excellent, the plant produces a wondrous scent that I can enjoy. and extract by various means."

IF YOU HAD ONE OIL TO TAKE TO A DESERTED ISLAND, WHICH ONE WOULD IT BE? Rosemary and I would take the plant as well. It is healing, fragrant, and edible. Jeanne has written over 25 books. She believes that natural perfumery is an extension of aromatherapy and that aromatherapy is the logical extension of herbal therapy. "You can't really know about the essential oil unless you also know the herb." She has been writing a blog about herbs and essential oils for the last five years. Jeanne has covered and published over 150 plants in-depth in her blog posts.
