Its been a busy time here on the farm. Lots of perennial planting of herbs and veggies (asparagus)
Sprucing up the orchard, though we did loose 3 trees, and will replace those that didn’t make it.

The Elderberries are doing great! Now that they are weed free and not being choked out!
We found this wonderful young man Teddy Mattson from Thorndike ME who is certified in permaculture.
He is amazing with plantings and does Hugel Kultur. The below is our first finished Hugel with perennial herbs.

Consider what Dr. Mercola has to say in regard to bath and shower products:

“If I were to tell you that your shower and bath products could be putting you at risk for less-than-optimal skin and eye health, immune and endocrine function, would you pay a little more attention to your products’ ingredients?

Did you know that applying a substance to your skin isn’t much different from eating it? In fact, I believe it may be even worse.

And let’s not forget… a hot steaming shower…

* Opens your skin pores
* Drives a high absorption rate of chemicals directly into your system
* Vaporizes 70 to 90% of the chemicals present so you inhale them into your lungs
When you consider that products such as shower gels and soaps may be used daily, you can imagine the chemical residue that may build up over the years. (Source: http://bathcare.mercola.com/)

Essentially, it’s safe to say that if it’s not something you would eat, it is best not to put it on your skin.

We have added some new products:

– Anointing oil – Spiral of Life  Associated with the cycles of time, seasons, birth, growth, death and then rebirth.

Lullaby Diffuser blend  Cedarwood Himalaya, Cedarwood Virginiana, Sweet Orange

– Visit our Diffuser Blends page 

Coffee CO2-to Extract : if you really truly love the scent of coffee .. this is amazing material

And so much more to explore on our site. So on a really hot day when you just want to sit back in the a/c and have a chill out day, please visit our site and learn about our products.

Stay cool and remember to hydrate and don’t forget the old folks do not do well in the heat .. nor do our pets.

The Essential Oil shortage of Spring 2015

Quote:
Flowers…
are a proud assertion that a ray of beauty
outvalues all the utilities of the world.
~ Ralph Waldo Emerson, 1844

The state of essential oils around the globe .. it not good.
Its bad in Europe and bad in Australia.
The weather has been creating havoc on the crops ..
and so, the down line effect is ..
a serious shortage of some precious essential oils.

Hoping that this coming season is better for them ..
The farmers are being devastated by this and
I pray they have a better grow season in the coming year.

Saying that, Please be patience with us and other companies when we say ..
out of stock .. as this is a serious issue.
Also, some suppliers are buying a ‘natural identical’ material ..
which we will NOT do here at SunRose.
So, please be aware of this.

Earth Day April 22nd ~ What’s New :

Earth Day ~ April 22nd

“Even if for just a moment, be still, quiet your mind and body,
and really listen to the wonders of the world going on around you.”
– Jasmeine Moonsong

This winter was the mildest I can ever remember. No snow at all here in the Bronx. We are dry and need some rain.!! It has been so warm we had to put the a/c on and its only April. All the shrubs are blooming, the herbs are at least 5 inches tall.

With Earth Day this coming weekend, it reminds me how precious Mother Earth is. Hopefully, Monsanto and all the big corporations will begin to realize that their chemicals are slowly killing the earth, humans and all the creatures living here. Please be vocal to your politicians to stop the maddness of using these toxic chemicals and GMO foods.

Virgin Coconut Organic

 Put This Food on Your Hair for a New Level of Luster ~ According to one study, which compared mineral oil, sunflower oil, and coconut oil as possible products for nurturing and conditioning hair, coconut oil was the only oil that reduced protein loss for both damaged and undamaged hair.

Coconut Oil as a Skin Moisturizer ~ One of the core principles to remember when it comes to skin care is that whatever you slather onto your skin will absorb into your body and enter your bloodstream. This is why it’s so important to avoid personal care products containing questionable chemicals! Your skin is an excellent drug delivery system, so you should be just as careful with what you put on your skin as you are with what you eat, if not more so, as your gut actually helps protect you against some of the toxins you ingest by filtering them out…

This is a great article by Dr Mercola to read more: How to use Coconut Oil
