An article in Perfume & Flavorist:
Fragrance Futurology ~
‘Inspired by farmers’ markets, more consumers will actively seed out direct-to-source operations,
Preferring to buy rose oil as raw and pure as possible from the hands that made it.’
‘Farm to bottle’ is the obvious evolution of today’s global appetite for perfumery naturals.
Watch out for some of the supply chain subtleties so you don’t get left behind.

Saying that, with my 21 years in the essential oil trade, I have developed relationships with my growers, suppliers.
SunRose brings these precious materials to you from the country of origin, and ensuring high quality materials for our customer base.

Please remember when purchasing essential oils that the information on the bottle should have:
– Name
– Botanical Name
– country of origin
– Method of Cultivation
– Method of Extraction
– Plant Material used

It is so very important to know the Botanical name and country or origin. ie :
– Cedarwood Altas Cedrus atlantica Morocco
– Cedarwood Himalaya Cedrus deodora Himalaya
– Cedarwood Virginiana  Juniperus virginiana USA

The Botanical name is the ‘finger print’ so to speak. Country of Origin will dictate the scent.
So please be sure you know what material you are buying and all the information so that when you  want to purchase it again, you ask for the correct materials.

Dill July 2019 will dry for culinary uses. the Scent is amazing

4th of July is it summer yet ?

Here in Maine we were patiently waiting for summer to arrive …  the temperatures were a tad chilly .. not hitting 70 and at night time still in the 50’s.
And then it happened. Summer full blast .. in mid 80’s today .. the flowers are finally starting to bloom, the lilacs this year were incredible .. the scent
intoxicating !! Followed by the Lupine of various colors .. the most beautiful natural flower in Maine .! And just this week .. the peonies started to open
oh the joys of gardening and the wonderful gifts of Mother Nature.!

Hello Summer

without the cold of winter to give it sweetness.”

Jasmine

One of my favorite scents (well one of many) is Jasmine .. I prefer Jasmine Grandiflorum vs Jasmine Sambac.
‘Jasmine absolute is widely used in perfumery and fragrances for cosmetics and toiletries to impart unique floral scents.
In traditional holistic medicine and in aromatherapy jasmine is considered one of the most effective products to:
relieve stress, anxiety, nervous tension, depression and exhaustion. It can be used also as an antiseptic (also anti-viral)
and as an anti-inflammatory agent.’

Summer of 2019 ~

It’s been a long while since I have blogged, and I would like to apologize .. Life happens .. especially illness .. and we have had our ups and downs here on the farm.
However, we are back in action and I hope to start blogging again to keep you up to date and informed on the goings on in the Essential Oil World.

This is our 21st year for SunRose.  And I would just like to take this opportunity to say a huge ‘thank you’ to our customer base that has been so very loyal throughout the years.
You are all like family and it is my honor to serve you.!

Thought I would share an interesting article called:
The Intimacy of Our Senses ~
May 30, 2019 – Author Ryan Daily, Assistant Editor, Perfumer & Flavorist –

Our senses have long been linked with intimacy. Historically, olfaction has been associated with closeness, attraction and romance. In numerous early films, the image of a woman gingerly applying a scent, before heading out on a date or a night out, was commonplace – this intimate moment reappeared again and again in the marketing of numerous fine fragrances. While scents are thought of in romantic terms, our sense of taste appeals to a different form of intimacy.

Winter 2018 Happenings here at SunRose

 Its been a while since I wrote a blog and so, it is time for me to update what is new and exciting here in Maine.
Last year both Chuck and I had some medical issues which thankfully, we have survived and came thru ok.
Without your health life can be a challenge that is for sure.

Quote:
Calm mind brings inner strength
and self-confidence, that is so
very important to good health.
– Dalai Lama

We started up at the United Farmers Market of Maine (Belfast) which is new for mid-coast Maine. It is a great opportunity for farmers and artisans to gather and bring their goods to sell. The vendors are amazing and it is a meeting place now for many Mainers and for the tourists as well. I am really enjoying the market and the good folks that visit. There is food of all sorts so that you can have  lunch in the beautiful dining room which looks out on the Penobscott Bay here in Belfast. The view is amazing!!! and it is fun for the locals to meet up with friends and sit and chat. The kids are loving the market as well and I love interacting with them. The children of Maine are bright and inquisitive and they are having a blast.

The market is year round every Saturday from 9:00am to 2pm. And I believe they are adding a day (Wednesday) from 2pm to 8pm. I will update when we have more details.  Look for our banner when you are at the market and please stop by and say hello.
