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.’

It’s been a long while since I have blogged, and I would like to apologize .. Life happens .. especially illness .. and we have had our ups and downs here on the farm.

Thought I would share an interesting article called:
The Intimacy of Our Senses ~
May 30, 2019 – Author Ryan Daily, Assistant Editor, Perfumer & Flavorist –

Our senses have long been linked with intimacy. Historically, olfaction has been associated with closeness, attraction and romance. In numerous early films, the image of a woman gingerly applying a scent, before heading out on a date or a night out, was commonplace – this intimate moment reappeared again and again in the marketing of numerous fine fragrances. While scents are thought of in romantic terms, our sense of taste appeals to a different form of intimacy.

Summer Time 2012 has arrived!

Peony flowers 2012

Its been a while since I wrote a blog post here. It seems between Facebook and Pinterest, and life happening .. I have been remiss in my entries.

The summer so far has been sweltering. Fires raging thru out the South West, my prayers for all those in those parts.

Politically, they are ramping up for the elections this year. I think I will keep my opinions to myself .. Politics and Religion… I don’t go there.

Basket of Lavender w/ Bundle 2012

What is blooming in your garden? My Lavender is amazing this year, and my elderberries are off the hook huge and tons of flowers, I will be busy this year with them.

Also made for the first time, Chives and white wine vinegar. It is so yummy. For sure will make more bottles next year.!!

Chives in White Wine Vinegar 2012

If you have not been to SunRose FaceBook page, please follow us there as I do post there regularly. Happenings in the Essential Oil Industry, new products, specials, and so much more. https://www.facebook.com/SunRoseAromatics

Wishing you a wonderful Summer. Stay cool, be sure to drink plenty of fluids and don’t forget our animals (domestic and feral) they need water too.!!

I love Reflexology! I studied it back in the late 1999. As a young girl when my Grandpa would come home from work his feet hurt him so much I would take off his boots and sock and massage them for him. I saw the relief he received and how relaxed it made him. this is an informative artilce by Sun Gazing on FaceBook. Enjoy.

Reflexology Poster by Sun Gazing

What is Foot Reflexology?

Foot Reflexology has become a well respected ADJUNCT to regular medical care. It is used in Hospitals, by Physical Therapists and Chiropractors to enhance MOST forms of medical treatments.

It is not a “miracle” or a “faith healing” type thing. Sometimes, like other therapies, it takes a few sessions.

Foot reflexology can help ease the pain of achy joints and muscles, relieve headaches and toothaches, improve the functioning of major systems of the body.

Foot Reflexology works by applying pressure at specific points on the bottom of the foot. This is not the same as acupressure or acupuncture.

In fact, the only thing that is the same is that medical science can’t prove how it works…they just know it does!!

There are over 7,200 nerve endings at the bottom of each foot. Nerves connect to every organ, every limb and region of the body through the brain and spinal column. It is thought that foot reflexology works in much the same way. Even though we don’t actually work the nerve endings, the correlation of the bottom of the feet to every region of the body definitely exists. It was originally called “The Zone” therapy in the early 20th century and was successfully organized into a comprehensive therapy by a physical therapist, Eunice Ingham in the ’40s. She coined the term “reflexes” when referring to this therapy.

Foot reflexology can increase the blood flow to the part of the body being worked, which in turn increases the oxygen going to that part.

The increased blood flow helps take away toxins that build up in each cell of the body each day.

This brings more health and vitality to the region plus adds a sense of over-all well-being. When our feet feel good, we feel good!

Learn to do foot reflexology to help your family and friends feel better! Get help getting your body back to its’ natural state of health by teaching your family to do foot reflexology on you!

Please realize that foot reflexology is NOT a substitute for medical treatment, you are always encouraged to seek professional medical help when needed, however, this therapy can be used in conjunction with most treatments for most conditions.

Please, if being treated by a medical professional, get that professional’s permission before doing foot reflexology for that medical condition.  ~ by sun Gazing on FaceBook

Enjoy the outdoors when you can, have a safe and relaxing Summer Time~
’til next time,

Early Summer ~ How my garden grows 2011

Life has been moving way too swiftly and I realized I had not written a blog post here in the longest.  Between FaceBook, Twitter, Lindedin .. there are just so many medias to keep up with. To be honest .. I always make a point to post on my FB page so if you have not joined me there my SunRose FB address ::

http://tinyurl.com/4d78x3y

The weather has really been so beautiful the past few days and I was finally able to get out there in my garden.  I thought I would share some of the Garden photo’s with you. I hope you enjoy them.

This is my kitchen table with the first bounty of the Early Summer. The peonies, roses and scapes from the garlic and of course my tonics from the essential herbal  which helped me with my bronchitis.!!


Every magical Garden should have their protectors. Don Luis is a new addition to my garden this year. He watches as people walk into the property. Love his face.

St Francis to be sure the animals are safe and protected as well.

Elderberries are going on 2 yrs old (planted 2010). I am hoping for berries this year so I can make some syrup with them.

This is my Aloe plant (Mama) with all her babies. 2011

Here are some the Aloe babies. There were 31 of them.!! All potted now.

This for me is for sure Summer has arrived.

Actually, this is early Spring 2011. But I just love the shadows from the pergola.

Sasha always with me .. and checking out the garden. Lettuce is in and the baby tomatoes are hiding behind the stakes.

Patio tomatoes in the Earth Boxes lets see how the fair this year.

Sasha follows me everywhere .. I love my puppy.!! (well she is 8 yrs young now but I won’t tell her that ;O)

I hope you enjoyed some of my world. 

What’s new at SunRose?? Well, we are finally getting in some organic Mandarin RED from Italy. Also, ‘new’ for us will be Organic Castor Oil and Organic Soy Bean Carrier oils. From South Africa we are getting some ‘non sprayed’ Ruby Grapefuit oil. So stay tuned I will post them up on the web as soon as I can.
