Proper essential oil dilution is an important part of aromatherapy. SunRose Aromatics strongly urges our customers to use essential oils safely and wisely. This means not using essential oils without first properly diluting them. The results of a survey conducted in May and June 2015 by the Tisserand Institute highlights the dangers of improper essential oil dilution:
Dilution cannot be overemphasized when it comes to all essential oils, but is especially important for cinnamon bark and cassia. A little really does go a long way and if you proceed with caution, you may be able to benefit from some of the amazing properties of these oils for longer, and with no adverse reaction.
We provide essential oil dilution charts on the SunRose Aromatics website, which we encourage you to study and use as a guideline. The best thing you can do is read as much about aromatherapy and educate yourself as much as possible so that you know you’re using essential oils safely.
Researchers report that nepetalactone, the essential oil in catnip that gives the plant its characteristic odor, is about ten times more effective at repelling mosquitoes than DEET — the compound used in most commercial insect repellents.

Its been a very rough Winter Season for some of us around the USA.
Between the cold weather and howling winds,
the heat in the house drying out our skin ..
it is time to make some Body Creme and pamper
your skin .. Face, hands, elbows, feet .. all over.
DIY: Easy to make body creme:
(and remember its your creation
you can formulate this to your liking)
I like to add equal parts:
– 1 Tsp Rosehip Organic (highest form of Vit C for your skin)
– 1 Tsp Evening Primrose Carrier Oil Organic
1. in a bowl add your Shea butter, VCO, Vit E
2. then blend your essential oil & rosehip / evening primrose mix and add to the bowl.
3. with either your kitchen aid or hand mixer ..
whip til it is the texture of meringue.
Because you are not adding any water you really do not have to worry about bacteria .
(Remember Vit E is NOT a preservative).
4. Once you have the texture you desire, place your body creme into a jar,
tapping on a cushioned pad to pack down and to get the air out.
Let us be grateful to people
who make us happy,
they are the charming gardeners
who make our souls blossom.
~ Marcel Proust
And so, another season is coming to an end ..
isn’t it funny how by the end of a Season ..
we are ready to see it go.
I am so looking forward to Spring coming to Maine,
seeing what survived the winter,
the herbal beds, and flower beds, to be created ..
There is so much to discover here ..
Life is full and Spring is bursting with New Life, New Beginnings ..
~ until next time .. be well, Rosanne

“We do not need to grieve for the dead.
Why should we grieve for them?
They are now in a place where there is no more shadow,
darkness, loneliness, isolation, or pain.
They are home.”

Would like to take a moment to honor my Mother In Law
Mary Francis O’Donnell who passed away 25 February 2015.
She was an amazing woman, loving, kind and with such a
great sense of humor. She passed quickly ,
and I am just happy she did not suffer. Mama O’donnell
as I called her loved the farm here .. and I am blessed
to have known her .. She will forever be in my heart.
Be at peace Mary Francis.
