Solar Eclipse, New Moon & Spring Equinox ~

Quote:
‘Laughter is the sun
that drives winter
from the human face.’
~ Victor Hugo

Lots of exciting happenings in the sky this weekend.

For the first time since November 3, 2013,
the Moon will completely cover the disk of the Sun
on March 20, resulting in a total solar eclipse.

The Spring equinox occurs more than 12 hours after the eclipse ends.

Its been a very rough Winter Season for some of us around the USA.
Between the cold weather and howling winds,
the heat in the house drying out our skin ..
it is time to make some Body Creme and pamper
your skin .. Face, hands, elbows, feet .. all over.

DIY:
Easy to make body creme:
(and remember its your creation
you can formulate this to your liking)

– 1 cup (16oz) Shea butter Organic
– 1/4 cup Virgin Coconut Carrier Oil Organic
– 1 tsp of Vitamin E oil (Non Gmo if possible)
– 1/2 oz of your favorite essential oil or blend
(ie Lavender, Sandalwood, etc)

Optional:
I like to add equal parts:
– 1 Tsp Rosehip Organic (highest form of Vit C for your skin)
– 1 Tsp Evening Primrose Carrier Oil Organic

1. in a bowl add your Shea butter, VCO, Vit E
2. then blend your essential oil & rosehip / evening primrose mix and add to the bowl.

3. with either your kitchen aid or hand mixer ..
whip til it is the texture of meringue.

Because you are not adding any water you really do not have to worry about bacteria .
(Remember Vit E is NOT a preservative).

4. Once you have the texture you desire, place your body creme into a jar,
tapping on a cushioned pad to pack down and to get the air out.

Pamper your body and get ready for Spring. www.SunRoseAromatics.com

And so, another season is coming to an end ..
isn’t it funny how by the end of a Season ..
we are ready to see it go.
I am so looking forward to Spring coming to Maine,
seeing what survived the winter,
the herbal beds, and flower beds, to be created ..
There is so much to discover here ..
Life is full and Spring is bursting with New Life, New Beginnings ..
~ until next time .. be well, Rosanne

Spring Equinox, Full Moon, New Beginnings

Well, this year is just moving along for me .. Spring is always a sign of ‘rebirth’ and ‘new beginnings’. My Mom would always say how beautiful it was to watch Mother Nature wake up from her sleep and the beautiful ‘new green’ color on trees.

My garden here in the Bronx is slowly waking up,the day lilies are about 2 inches tall already, as are my irises. The grass is even starting to act up.! This year I am planning to put some blueberries & raspberries in, and some ‘bee boxes’.

Part of my thing is ‘recycling’. Friends bring me their peanuts and bubble wrap that I use here at SunRose. However, there is an area that some folks do not know what to do with :
their old / broken electronics i.e. cell phones, old laptops, etc.

This is an informative article:
Engineering a Tough Switch: Getting New Yorkers to Recycle Electronics – New York Times http://www.nytimes.com/2008/03/10/nyregion/10recycle.html?ex=1362801600&en=1e83a25ec0dd81d1&ei=5088&partner=rssnyt&emc=rss

Some upcoming events that may be in your area:

My niece, Christie Marie Tartaro, who is also my ‘house mate’ at the 1120 Club here in the Bronx… is doing the Revlon Run/Walk for Women. Some of us are survivors and some, though fought the good fight, have moved on to the next plane.

Revlon Run/Walk For Women – New York https://www.revlonrunwalk.com/ny/secure/MyWebPage.cfm?pID=416752

On Saturday, May 3rd I will be participating in the 11th annual Revlon Run/Walk for Women in NYC. This 5k race will help raise money for women’s cancer research (breast and ovarian cancers).
While I’ve been hitting the gym 5-6 days a week, I’m planning on walking the 5k with my Mom and my friend Peggy.
I have set a personal fundraising goal of $500 for this great cause. I am hoping that you will be able to help me achieve my goal! Remember, no donation is too small!

If you would like to make a donation, please visit click on the link below to visit my personal fundraising page. Revlon Run/Walk For Women – New York https://www.revlonrunwalk.com/ny/secure/MyWebPage.cfm?pID=416752

until next time ~Rosanne
