Rose Otto Single Note ~ rosa damascena

Spotlight: Try Our Bulgarian Rose Otto Single Note

February is the month of love and for us here at SunRose, nothing says love more than Bulgarian Rose Otto (Rosa damascena). Rose Otto has the scent of fresh roses that we want to bury our faces in and breathe deeply to inhale their exotic aroma. The deep, sweet, flowery scent is an exquisite perfume that brings us to a very special place where emotions are soothed. This is an ultra feminine oil that may enable a woman to have positive feelings about herself. We especially like to have this oil around in times of grief or depression.


Rose has long been a symbol of love and purity. The petals were strewn at weddings to ensure a happy marriage and they are still used in many weddings today. The story of St. Dominic tells us he was visited by the Virgin Mary in a mystical vision where he received the first rosary. Each bead was scented with roses to aid with meditation and prayer.

organic tangerine essential oil

Spotlight: Try Our Organic Tangerine Essential Oil

Spring is 46 days away! To get us through until then, we’re focusing on organic Tangerine Essential OilCitrus reticulata. Tangerine has the most wonderful sweet, light and tangy scent. This oil is said to have an almost hypnotic effect on our psyche. It’s been known to help ease stress and tension due to its soothing action on the nervous system.

Tangerine has some of the same properties as Orange and Mandarin.

Our Harmonia Goddess of Peace & Tranquility Diffuser Blend includes Tangerine Essential Oil, but we encourage you to use it in your own blends. Try it with Ylang Ylang, Roman Chamomile, or Patchouli!

For the next week, until 2/8/2017, use coupon code TANGERINE to save 10% on retail sizes of organic Tangerine Essential Oil. We hope you’ll give this sweet, light essential oil a try!

Remember when use citrus oils on the skin to dilute first (always dilute please) and most citrus oils are phototoxic do not wear on skin in the sun.

Special Cautions for Tangerine Essential Oil:
External use ONLY.
Do NOT use undiluted on the skin.
Keep away from children and pets.

organic lemon essential oil

Spotlight: Organic Lemon Essential Oil

Lemon essential oil – organic Citrus limonum – is another wonderful citrus to assist us through winter. Its fresh and sharp scent is so very refreshing. Use lemon essential oil as a top note in any blend to help bring clarity of thought. Lemno is also a popular flavoring agent in perfumes and food, though in food recipes I always use the whole fruit. Lemon is also an adaptogen; it maye be energizing or assist in sleep, depending on how it is used.

At SunRose Aromatics, we have several diffuser blends that contain Lemon essential oil, including Sensory Delight and Sweet Dreams. But why not try creating your own blend? Try it with Grapefruit and Peppermint for an energizing blend. For a more relaxing blend, try it with Lavender.

For the next week, until 2/1/2017, use coupon code LEMON to save 10% on retail sizes of organic Lemon Essential Oil. We hope you’ll give this vibrant essential oil a try!

As with all citrus oils remember that Lemon essential oil is phototoxic.

Special Cautions for Lemon Essential Oil:
External use ONLY.
Do NOT use undiluted on the skin.
Keep away from children and pets.

Thank you to our SunRose Family

New Year 2017 !!!
This January marks 19 years of SunRose serving the holistic community. Thank you for your continued patronage and trust in us.

So many of you have followed us throughout the years and I want to say from my heart to your hearts .. thank you.

When we moved from the Bronx NY to Belmont Maine it was a huge leap of faith, however, I am so grateful we followed our dream and moved here to the farm.

We all need a dream .. and as my Mom would tell me .. ‘Once a thought, it will become a deed.’  My wish for you is that you find that dream that resonates in your soul and follow that dream. Yes it is scary .. but a good scary ..  it may take a few years (we moved here when I turned 62) so do NOT let your age deter you.

Yesterday, January 6th, was Chuck and I first wedding anniversary.
We are now living here on the farm 3 years and our gardens are growing. Filled with many holistic and culinary herbs and flowers. And hopefully in the future we will get to distill them.

Each season we tackle new projects and so, in the winter months we dream of Spring and all the new plantings we are hoping to accomplish.

Hoping 2017 brings new adventures to you all, filled with hope,  and love and all good things ..

Oh, and be on the look out .. for on the 19th of each month we will have specials for the day .. to celebrate 19 Years of SunRose Aromatics.

Stay safe in these storms, stay cozy and warm,
~ til next time ..
Rosanne and all of us at SunRose


Peppermint Essential Oil for Nausea

A recent article at HerbClip™ Online discusses the use of inhaled peppermint essential oil for nausea following cardiac surgery. While all treatment plans should always be discussed with your doctor, we believe a peppermint essential oil inhalation can be a helpful part of post surgical treatment for nausea:

One open-label study that evaluated the efficacy of inhaled peppermint essential oil in patients who experienced nausea after cardiac surgery found that a one-time use of the inhaler resulted in 55.8% of the patients having no nausea and 23.5% having only mild nausea.4 Five patients needed to use the inhaler a second time, and four of them were nausea free after the second use.

At SunRose Aromatics, we have both an organic peppermint essential oil and a non-organic peppermint essential oil for you to try. Also be sure to check out our Pocket Inhalers for easy inhalations.
