Early Evening July 9 2019

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.

Rosemary May Help Memory

There’s rosemary, that’s for remembrance.

SunRose’s web developer, Kim Baron, tells us that she drove her wedding floral arranger crazy with her constant insistence that rosemary be included in the bridal bouquet, citing the above line from Hamlet as her reason. It turns out Kim may have been on to something. A post for New Zealand Listener in July describes research finding that essential oil of rosemary may help memory by enhancing “prospective memory.” Prospective memory helps us remember a future activity we need to accomplish, such as make a stop at the store on the way home or pick up the dry cleaning.

A recent experiment found that people aged 65 or older had significantly higher prospective memory scores after spending time in a room in which four drops of rosemary essential oil had been diffused than those who spent time in a non-scented room.

(The researcher) credits some of that effect to eucalyptol, a compound found in rosemary that increases the production of acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter associated with memory. In earlier experiments, he found that people who had been exposed to rosemary essential oil had significantly higher levels of eucalyptol in their blood than those who had not.

The researcher goes on to say:

And although it might eventually be possible to identify exactly which of those ingredients is needed to get a beneficial effect, Moss doubts they could ever be commercially reproduced in a laboratory. “The combinations you find in nature are so complex it would probably not be possible to get an exact match.”

We have several different rosemary essential oils at SunRose:

All three of our rosemarys are organic and, like all of our oils, never adulterated. Give them a try in your aromatherapy blends to enhance memory.
