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

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.’

Carrot Seed Oil Benefits

Carrot Seed Essential Oil is said to have a cleansing effect on the mind. It may help to relieve feelings of stress and exhaustion. This oil is an excellent purifier of the body, mainly due to its detoxifying effect on the liver when used in massage oils and baths. In skin care, this is an excellent oil to improve the complexion due to its strengthening effect on red blood cells, adding tone and elasticity to the skin. It apparently gives a more “youthful” appearance and it is said to remove “age spots.” Carrot Seed Essential Oil is also said to alleviate other problems such as weeping sores and ulcers. Generally healing to inflamed wounds as well as dry and hard skin, callouses and corns. Further, it vitalizes the hydpodermis and is recommended for the treatment of aged skin, dermatitis, skin rashes and wrinkles.

P. Mailhebiau: Portraits in Oils –
‘Mailhebiau refers to D. carota as the symbol of life or death, the gift of self or egoism in the middle of the crowd, for those who seem to use both these tendencies according to the opportunity of the moment and the advantage that one hope to get out of it.’

In Perfumery, Carrot Seed Oil is used for its fatty woody notes which blend well with Cypress, Citrus oils, Costus Oil, CassiaMimosa, Geranium oils, and Cedarwood derivatives. We like to blend it with Bergamot, Fennel, Juniper, Lavender, Lemon, Lime, Melissa, Neroli, Orange, Petitgrain, Rosemary.

bergamot essential oil - Citrus bergamia

Spotlight: Try Our Bergamot Essential Oil, Citrus bergamia

Bergamot Essential Oil has such a light, delicate, refreshing scent. This beautiful oil is the product of the bergamot tree, the most delicate of all citrus plants, which demands a special climate and soil.  This make the tree somewhat difficult to grow outside of Italy, though bergamot trees are also grown in France, Côte d’Ivoire, and southern Turkey. The scent of bergamot is somewhat reminiscent of a combination of orange and lemon, with slight floral overtones.

Note:
Bergamot is from the expressed rinds of the fruit.
Petitgrain is from the distillation of the leaves.

Uses

Bergamot Essential Oil is one of the most common perfume ingredients, where it is used as a top note. Its uplifting yet sedative character is wonderful for anxiety, depression, and nervous tension. It has a combined cooling and refreshing quality that may diminish anger and frustration. This oil has been known to regulate the appetite, which may make it useful for sufferers of Anorexia Nervosa. It is also an excellent insect repellant.

The chemical constituents of Bergamot Essential Oil include Linalool, Nerol, Terpinol (Alcohol), Linalyl acetate (Ester), Bergaptene (Lactone), Dipentene, and Limonene (Terpenes).

Blends

We like to blend Bergamot Essential Oil with Chamomile, Cypress, Eucalyptus, Geranium, Jasmine, Lavender, Lemon, Neroli, Patchouli and Ylang Ylang.

Bergamot Essential Oil At SunRose

At SunRose, we offer three options for Bergamot Essential Oil:

Bergamot (Italy) FCF
Bergamot (Italy) FCF (O) NOP
