Wanted to share this article that Marge Clark had posted regarding aromatherapy massage using Lavender and Geranium essential oil blend  (which is my calming synergy).
Aromatherapy massage is commonly used for the stress management of healthy individuals, and also has been often employed as a therapeutic use for pain control and alleviating psychological distress, such as anxiety and depression, in oncological palliative care patients.

The Benefits of Massage

The effect of touch clearly has a profound psychological and physical impact on the human body.
Massage is one of the truly preventive holistic therapies.

The physical benefits of massage are:

* stimulates the circulation of blood
* reduces high blood pressure
* stimulates the immune system
* reduces muscular tension
* relieves pain in muscles and joints

 Time is just flying bye .. and so much has happened in these past few months .. as we journey thru life .. there is the ebb and flow ..
with the wonder and joy, yes this is some stress and sorrow. for me it was loosing my Sasha. I am so happy she did get to spend her last few months here on the farm.
In the photo above is the newest member of our tribe .. Conan .. here he is 4 months old .. a hand full to say the least but a love bucket for sure.!!!

June 2014

I was so every excited to see this plant here. thank heaven for technology,

as I would post a photo to facebook and ask my ‘herbie friends’ what is this plant!!!

The bees love the comfrey flowers and I have even seen humingbirds buzzing them as well.

One of our goals here is to plant a medicinal garden, so finding this comfrey here is just the start.

And with all these wonderful plants available we are hoping to keep bees down the road.

The past month of June has for sure been a challenge for SunRose.
As you know the SunRose website was not working for almost most of the month ..
and still now not 100% at time.
Earthlink bought out our old web host and that was when the nightmare began.

Thank you !!!
Thank you !!!

To my SunRose Family, thank you for your understanding and support.
The emails and calls helped a horrible situation tolerable.

There maybe something wrong with the SunRose site,
I would not have known.
So very thankful and grateful to you all.!

Rosemary Gladstar’s – Fire Cider

It seems that some people / companies are just about money .. unfortunate.
Especially in the case of TM (trade marketing) an herbal remedy that folks have been making forever.
The link above (youtube) is Rosemary showing how to make this ‘fire cider’ and all the properties of each ingredient.
