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.’

What is the smell of rain ?? & Earth Day Special

Raindrops www.SunRoseAromatics.com

What is the smell of rain ??

“petrichor,”
– the blood of stone.

 ‘It’s used to describe the distinct scent of rain in the air.
Or, to be more precise, it’s the name of an oil
that’s released from the Earth into the air
before rain begins to fall.’

The smell had actually been described already by a small perfumery industry operating out of India,
which had successfully captured and absorbed the scent in sandalwood oil.

They called it “matti ka attar” or “Earth perfume”.
But its source was still unknown to science.

– Sandalwood Extra, New Caledonia

– Sandalwood Sri Lanka

– Incense: Sandalwood Chips – Byakudan

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.
