Rose Hydrosol - TCM and more

I was recently enjoying time with a colleague of mine who is a TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) practitioner as well as dabbler in general herbs, aromatherapy, and cooking. Eventually the topic of rose and rose hydrosol came up between us and it became a fabulous exchange of ideas, recipes and experiences.

* Add about 1-2 tablespoons (or to taste) of rose hydrosol to a half quart of water (or sparkling water). This makes for a hydrating calorie free spritzer with a twist that also is a gentle liver/spleen/stomach tonic!

* Put that same twisted rose hydrosol in a fine mist spray bottle and have a refreshing moisturizer that combats summer heat, winter cold and generally drying climate control systems.

* Add a tablespoon (or to taste) of rose hydrosol to a batch of sugar cookie dough or vanilla cupcake frosting for an international style gourmet treat the kids will love!

* As a feminine rinse for arousal add 1 -2 tablespoons of rose hydrosol to a cup of lukewarm water and cleanse.

Well ladies and gentlemen, that concludes today's aromatically arousing discussion. Hopefully you will join the ALOF Blog again! :)

Out of the Olive Branch

Esoterically the olive branch, with its oil rich fruit, has for eons been a symbol of peace, unification and harmony. In that vein, whether it is an outward display of truce towards others, or something more inner to nurture our personal calm, the promise and beauty of the olive has an ability to bring peace to our lives and daily routine.

For myself, the ability to work as an artist in a medium of olive oil is beautiful, peaceful and harmonizing for my spirit. I also find joy in touching lives with these olive based creations and hope to bring at least a few moments of peace and pampering into everyone's world with that touch.
