Many thanks ! 10 Years Later!!!

This is a time of thanks .. to all those that have supported me and my vision of SunRose. Here I am .. 10 yrs later … it is just amazing to me. Many thanks to all my customers, family and friends that have been with me thru these years .. and continue to believe in SunRose and the beautiful aromatic materials we offer.
Saying that … thru the years I have developed friendships with my suppliers/ distillers from around the world. I am ever aware of the strife in many of the countries essential oils are obtained from.
Most recently, the atrocities going on in Mumbai .. and the terrorists attacks there last week. This was equivalent to the 9/11 terrorists attack here in NYC .. I had the honor of meeting Ramakant, our grower/distiller from India, a few years back. My dear friend Sandrine VanSlee had brought him up to the Bronx to meet me .. he is such a kind, gentle man .. his love and knowledge of essential oils is just amazing.
Then to read about the attacks there .. makes me so very thankful that I live here in the USA. We sometimes forget that we still do have so many freedoms, and as a female ..
the opportunities that I have .. however, would NOT have in many other countries.
The Internet has made it is easy for us to get to know the people of far off countries, learning about their customs and way of life. This has been one of the major blessings that I am so thankful for.
When I read this article .. I thought it so apropos … sometimes we forget .. we are a community, those of this modern generation have become so insular .. emails, texting, etc .. to read more:
Keep Friendship Alive – People need people. And often they don’t realize how great their need is until some moment of great joy or deep sorrow. At some point in your life you’ve probably experienced this yourself—wanting to share some great news with a friend or, perhaps during hard times, needing care and support from others …

I’m thinking .. a ‘white Christmas’ ..
snow .. the quiet peacefulness …
The Winter Solstice,
also known as Midwinter,
is around the corner ..
Some quotes for the winter season ~
‘ In ancient times, both Druids and Romans
hung sprigs of mistletoe in their homes
and places of celebration to bring
good fortune, peace and love.
‘ Winter is on my head,
but eternal spring is in my heart.
— Victor Hugo
Blow, blow, thou winter wind
Thou art not so unkind,
As man’s ingratitude.
— William (Bill) Shakespeare
‘Lighting one candle
from another –
Winter night.’
— Buson

Boo! – Scary day(s) ahead!

The other nite my dearest friend (Ms Gina Pieretti) and I went into Manhattan.

It was one of those crisp, clear nites and Gina took this picture from the FDR Drive. We were driving south bound. (On our way to Little Italy / Chinatown).
If you notice in the top ‘left hand’ corner ..

there seems to be ‘lights’ floating.
No explanation.

Just thought I would share this ..

This is one of my all time favorite time of year.
The summer heat is gone the crisp Autumn air ..
Harvest is in, time to snuggle and get cozy ..

Some trivia on Halloween / Samhain / All Saints Day –
Of course – The kids (and some adult folks) enjoy dressing up for the Halloween parties, trick or treat.. those scary haunted houses, spooky stories. Yikes!

Then for those who celebrate Samhain (pronounced ‘sow-en’) which derives from the Gaelic ‘Samhuin’ .. the time to honor our ancestors, celebrating those who have died, to celebrate the connection between this world and the next. Sunset on Samhain is the beginning of the Celtic New Year.

Around the eighth century, the Catholic Church decided to use November 1st as ‘All Saints Day’. A smart move on their part, as the local pagans were already celebrating that day anyway. So it made sense to use it as a church holiday.

Another scary day coming up is Election Day.
This coming Tuesday November 4th is the Presidential Election.
I pray hard for this country.
The large deficit, unemployment, foreclosures ..
just a scary scary time for America I think ..

Halloween quotes to end this Blog post –

George Carlin –
There are nights when the wolves are silent and only the moon howls.

H P Lovecraft –
The oldest and strongest emotion of mankind is fear,
and the oldest and strongest kind of fear …
is fear of the unknown.

Henry C Link –
Fear is nature’s warning signal to get busy.

Winter Solstice & Seasons Greetings

The days are shorter now. Winter is setting in, the snow squalls happening here are interesting, to say the least.
The garden has the winter look, the holiday lights are twinkling in the crisp night air, making it feel magical.

Tis the season, of sniffles and colds .. so be sure to have the ‘necessities’ on hand. Fill the house with scents of yummy soups and chili. Chicken soup the ‘cure all’ for sure.

There is a beautiful site I would like to share, its called ‘the Next 7 Generations, The Grandmothers Speak’. They are the International Council of Thirteen Indigenous Grandmothers. Here is the YouTube link –
Click here: YouTube – For the Next 7 Generations: The Grandmothers Speak

More and more people are becoming aware of the crisis on this planet. Hopefully, with time we will have more elders that we can go to .. that will share and teach us the simple teaching and healing of Mother Earth.

The Winter Solstice, which is also known as Midwinter, occurs around December 21st or 22nd each year. It is the shortest day (or longest night)of the year. It is typically recognizing a time of ‘rebirth’ and spending time with loved ones.

Referred to as ‘Yule’ a Germanic Pagan festival of the rebirth of the Sun.
The Yule log was believed to bring beneficial magic and kept burning for at least 12 hours warming the both the house and those who lived there.

The Himalayan Crystal Salt Lamps give that soft and peaceful warmth to any room. We also offer the Himalayan Crystal Candle holders either of which will give that cozy feeling on those cold winter nites.

Sometimes, it is the simple gifts that bring the most joy. We hope you will find a gift to bring joy to those you love.

Stay cozy and warm, til next time
