Forgiveness is the fragrance …
that the violet sheds ..
on the heel that has crushed it.
~~ Mark Twain
The winter is progressing, and some parts of the country are getting severe weather, be it snow or ice or rain. Winter months can be very rough for sure .. however, as in the photo above .. there is a quiet beauty that is also part of the Season. I hope that where ever you live you are safe and that you are coping with the winter weather.

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.
Character is higher than intellect.
A great soul will be strong to live …
as well as think.
~~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
Ms Tina Sams over at the Essential Herbal Magazine wrote an excellent blog regarding this and so, I am posting a link to that blog post Oops, that isn’t yours!
This month’s cover is of our ‘brook at the farm’ here in Maine.
We took that photo last January 2013 .. and now we are living our dream.
Do not go where the path
may lead ..
Go instead where there is
no path …
and leave a trail.

Being deeply loved by someone

~~ Lao Tzu
Winter is moving along .. and very very cold in some areas of the USA ..
please keep cozy and warm. Taking extra care with the elders and children and pets ..
We are day dreaming thru seed catalogs and visualizing and yes lots of day dreams.
The Farm is a ‘work in progress’ and I for one am so looking forward to playing in the dirt.
After the winter ..
til next time ~ Rosanne
Yes indeed it is a snowy January in Maine.
This photo was taken over the weekend. It was snowing so hard it was like a white out.
As one friend commented, if it wasn’t for the barn being red it looks like a black n white photo. We are enjoying this weather,
yes I know some folks think .. really? you like snow?? Well, yes we really do.
Winter time is dreaming time of the Spring season and all the planting that I can’t wait to do.
We met the local Lavender Farmer and have put in a 50 plant order. Knowing they were grown in this area will ensure (fingers crossed) that they will thrive here on the farm.!
So, yes I am daydreaming of the coming seasons, each one new for us here. And planting our garden.
Are you reading your seed catalogs while you are cozy and warm thru this winter wonderland?
Recognizing Marketing Hype ~
It has been discussed on many essential oils groups ~ the marketing of essential oils and the terms they use to sell them.
This is not a new issue honestly, and one we have discussed many many times.
Be on the look out for the following terms .. as they are purely marketing hype .. and meaningless here in the USA ..
Also, in this country the FDA does NOT certify the quality of essential oils and for sure the FDA does not provide a label that states any of the following terms:
– aromatherapy grade
– therapeutic grade
– pharmaceutical grade
– CPTG – Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade
– Certified Pure PharmaGrade -(CPPharmaGrade™)
– EOBBD – Essential Oils Botanically and Biochemically Defined
Robert Tisserand wrote a wonderful article:
Therapeutic grade oils – read all about it. click here.
When you are purchasing your essential oils be sure that they have the following information
as this will identify the essential oil you are purchasing:
Essential Oil Name : Lavender
Botanical Name : Lavendula angustafolia
Country of Origin : France
Method of Cultivation: Conventional, Organic, Wild Crafted, NonSprayed, ONC (Organic Not Certified)
Method of Extraction: Steam Distilled
Plant Material Used: flowers, stems
CAS Number: if possible
Flash Point : if possible
Be an informed consumer! knowledge is power.
The above is great information when purchasing your essenital oils.!
