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:
Phototoxicity.
External use ONLY.
Do NOT use undiluted on the skin.
Keep away from children and pets.

Spotlight: Organic White Grapefruit Essential Oil

Welcome to our weekly Essential Oil Spotlight! Each Wednesday, we’ll feature an essential oil to learn more about. This week, we shine the light on organic White Grapefruit Essential Oil (Citrus paradisi).

This is a sweet, sharp and refreshing scent for sure! White Grapefruit Essential Oil is a must-have for the winter doldrums. Its overall uplifting and reviving effects make White Grapefruit valuable in states of stress. Grapefruit is also said to be euphoric and slightly hypnotic.

At SunRose Aromatics, we have several diffuser blends that contain White Grapefruit, such as Clarity, Luna Magic, Midnight Portals and Rings of Saturn. However, why not try making your own blend? Try White Grapefruit with Blood Orange, Lemongrass, Spearmint, or Bergamot, or just diffuse it on its own. Play with this refreshing oil to create your own blend.

Remember! If using White Grapefruit on the skin be sure to dilute first – always dilute, please – and remember that citrus oils are phototoxic, so do not wear them in the sun. Refer to our Dilution Charts for more information about dilution.

Short story: A SunRose client loved Grapefruit, so we explained to her that it must be diluted before being applied to the skin. We asked her to please be sure she diluted this oil and to be sure not to wear it on her skin if she was going to spend time in the sun. A week late, we received a call from her and she said, “I used the grapefruit before I went tanning. Now everything tastes metallic.” “Hmm,” I replied, “What did you learn from this experience?” This was certainly a hard lesson to learn, so we ask that all our customers avoid learning it the hard way. Dilute, dilute, dilute!

For the next week, until 1/25/2017, use coupon code WHITEGRAPEFRUIT to save 10% on retail sizes of organic White Grapefruit Essential Oil. We hope you’ll give this sweet, refreshing essential oil a try!

Spotlight: Organic Sweet Orange Essential Oil

Welcome to our first weekly Essential Oil Spotlight! Each Wednesday, we’ll feature an essential oil to learn more about. This week, we begin with organic Sweet Orange Essential Oil (Citrus sinensis).

Yes, the winter season calls for citrus. These bright, sunny oils can be especially beneficial to people who are affected by seasonal affective disorder (SAD). In an article about Essential Oils and Seasonal Affective Disorder, Robert Tisserand suggests that Sweet Orange Essential Oil and other citrus oils may be “particularly effective for mood enhancement.”

Our Sweet Orange oil has a zesty and refreshing citrus scent that spreads a little sunshine on gloomy thoughts or when you just feel blah.  This oil is reviving when feeling bored when when you have a lack of energy, which can happen for some people during the cold dead of winter. Sweet Orange is also great for banishing tension and stress. Its relaxing nature could be beneficial to insomnia brought on by anxiety.

At SunRose Aromatics, we have several diffuser blends that contain Sweet Orange, such as Ambiance, Happiness, and Joyful Joyful. However, why not try making your own blend? Try Sweet Orange with Lemon, Lavender, Geranium, or Bergamot, or just diffuse it on its own. Play with this happy oil to create your own fun and joyous blend.

Remember! If using Sweet Orange on the skin to dilute first – always dilute, please – and remember that citrus oils are phototoxic, so do not wear in the sun. Refer to our Dilution Charts for more information about dilution.

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
