Rejuvenating Mind PicWhen asked about rejuvenation, many people think of a relaxing trip to Mexico with sun, sand, a slight breeze, a tropical drink and maybe even a day at the spa. To others, rejuvenation involves going to a yoga class, playing a round of golf, or, on the other extreme, base-jumping.

Ever wonder why roses are given on Valentines Day?

Rose oilThe most exclusive of all oils, Rose Oil, heralded for its emotional and psychological benefits. It is a natural anti-depressant and aphrodisiac. No wonder the rose is the choice of valentines! 70% of the world’s Rose Oil is produced in Bulgaria. Harvesting of the flowers is done by hand in the morning before the sun rises and the oil must be distilled the same day. A very fragile caring process very fitting to the purpose it was made ~ to look after our hearts. Interestingly it takes 60,000 roses to produce 1 ounce of Rose Oil. Happy Valentine’s Day
