JeanneRose-blog.com is about the art and uses of herbs and aromatics; bathing and Spa care; aromatherapy and essential oils. Each addition will discuss in detail one or two aspects of these subjects. I discuss the history, background, naming, chemistry, properties, and uses of each of the named herbs and oils as well as my personal use, how it fits into my background, and maybe even a limerick or two.
