September 25th, 2013,
we made the journey and permanent move up to our farm here in Belmont Maine.

Yes, a dream come true for both us.

Moving the garden ‘stone people’ (statuary) was the first move in September 2012.

Lions and Fire Pit oh my

Then once the house was sold .. we had to move SunRose and our personal household.

The ‘Delancey Street Movers’ were amazing and I would highly recommend them.
They were understanding (stress of moving home and business),
and efficient and not one broken item .. NOT one.

The transformation here is amazing from the cleared out driveway,
to the patio / fire pit, the new bedroom / living .. which is on the first floor ..

getting the chickens that we lovingly call the ‘girls’ (11 of the girls) ..

And of course with joy comes some sorrow .. the ebb and flow of life ..
We lost my beloved Pup Sasha Feb 2014
and then 2 weeks later lost Mama Coco my sweet kitty from the Bronx House of Detention.

Enter Conan our German Shepherd puppy .. who is truly a joy in our life!
wow .. and we did survive puppyville .. a challenge I tell ya.!!

Conan is 16 months old here .. our baby puppy. www.SunRoseAromatics.com

Chuck lost his Mom Febuary of this year 2015 and she is very missed ..
and the rythmn of life goes on ..

Thank you for following our progress here on the farm. Sharing in our joys and yes sorrows ..

Our orchard is getting established. Our Elderberries seem to be thriving ..
with the help of Teddy Mattson his forte is permaculture.
He is really a blessing and helping shape the farm crops for us.

Life is a journey for sure .. each and every day a treasure.
I am so very grateful and so very blessed to be living here
on this amazing land with my life partner ..
he has made this incredible move easier for me.
And sharing life with him has been a true adventure.

Why Essential Oils Heal and Drugs Don’t ~

The Chemistry of Essential Oils / Made Simple
by David Stewart Ph.D., D.N.M.

If you tell most medical doctors that essential oils bring about healing with no negative side effects, they won’t believe you. This is because in medical school, students are repeatedly told by their professors that all effective medicines have negative side effects, and if they don’t then they can’t be effective.

Smell Boosts Prospective Memory

Rosemary aromatherapy can help boost prospective memory–- a new study finds that smelling a compound in the herb’s essential oil called 1,8-cineole, or eucalyptol, can help people remember tasks.

The smell of rosemary essential oil may help enhance prospective memory- the ability to remember upcoming events in order to complete future tasks, like sticking to a medication schedule or sending an email.

The Spring Season is the time of rebirth and new beginnings ..
though with the tragedy in Boston .. let us also take time
to remember our neighbors and friends and family.
For we never know what tomorrow may bring.

Mean Green Juice ~

Its end of summer .. where did the time go ..

with all the fresh fruits, veggies etc, it is a perfect time to do a juice for detoxing the body !!

here is a great article ~

Health Remedies
Mean Green Juice (original)

This is the official recipe used by Joe Cross and Phil Staples
according to the Reboot Program.

6 Kale Leaves
1 Cucumber
4 Celery Stalks
2 Green Apples
1/2 Lemon
1 piece of ginger

Mean Green Juice # 2

handful spinach
3 stalks of kale
2 golden delicious apples
small handful parsley
1 lemon
1 cucumber

Mean Green Juice # 3

2 stalks celery
1/2 cucumber
1/2 apple
1/2 lemon
small piece ginger
1/2 green chard leaf
bunch cilantro
5 kale leaves
handful spinach

Mean Green Juice # 4

1/2 pear
1/2 green apple
handful spinach
handful parsley
2 celery stalks
1/2 cucumber

small piece ginger
slice of papaya

NOTES FOR MAKING JUICE ::
– peel or slice off lemon rind leaving some of the white pith to juice
– small leaves such as parsley and cilantro,
  roll them up into a ball to compact the leaves
– wash all vegetables and fruits before making juice
– buy organic if possible.

5 Ways Green Juice Can Change Your Life :

1. Juicing and blending your greens breaks down their cell walls.
Greens are amazing in salads, but the only problem with eating them is that your body lacks the enzymes necessary to break down the cell walls of the plant. This makes it so that you are not to be able to extract all the nutrients from those cells. When you take your greens in juice or blended form, those cell walls are removed and you can reap maximum benefit from all the amazing nutrients hidden within the cells.

2. Greens have Chlorophyll.
Chlorophyll is one of the best things that you can put into your body!
Chlorophyll, when looked at molecularly is almost identical to the composition of your red blood cells, aside from the fact that it has magnesium in the center, as opposed to iron. This means that Chlorophyll is amazing for increasing oxygenation in your body (more oxygen equals more energy for you!) as well as being highly cleansing for your blood. You can even use chlorophyll as an internal deodorant because it is so cleansing for you!

3. Vitamin and Mineral Power!
These drinks are amazing for anyone who has poor digestive function.
When you juice or blend, you take all the digestive work away from your body, making all the vital nutrients in your fruits and vegetables readily available for your body to absorb and use. This can mean the difference between being partially nourished and being super charged!

4. Green juice and green smoothies will clean out your digestive system.
The fiber, chlorophyll, and other nutrients, found especially in greens will clean you out.

Did you know that you can store up to 20 pounds of waste in your colon! Yuck!
The more things we can do to keep our systems clean the better.

5. Components of green juice and smoothies have medicinal qualities.
– Parsley is a blood cleanser.
– Cilantro pulls heavy metals from the body.
– Ginger is a carminative, which means that it cleanses the gut as well as healing it.
– Citrus juice can help fight infection.
The more of these powerful foods you put into your body, the better!

I hope I have stirred a fire in you to go out and give some green juice or a green smoothie a try. I promise, your body will thank you. (Article from Natural News)

Hope you all had a wondeful summer ~

Looking forward to the cool breezes of Autumn.

til next time ..

It’s a New Year !! 2010 ~~


Bringing in the New Year .!!
The Year of the Tiger

According to the Chinese Zodiac, the Year of 2010 is the Year of the Tiger, which commences on February 14, 2010 and ends on February 2, 2011. The Tiger is the third sign in the Chinese Zodiac cycle, and it is a sign of bravery. This courageous and fiery fighter is admired by the ancient Chinese as the sign that keeps away the three main tragedies of a household. These are fire, thieves and ghosts.
