Ecuador Coffee & Rose Fragrance


Yesterday’s message looked at Ecuador coffee and opportunity in coffee shares.

One of the great joys in Ecuador at our hotel, Meson de las Flores, is the aroma of Ecuador coffee and the fragrance of flowers at breakfast.

Here is our balcony coffee table at our Meson suite. See how to stay here for a month.

A reader just sent this question asking about Ecuador rose fragrance.

Gary, I have a friend who would like to order Ecuador roses for her wedding.  I know the last time we ordered roses from Ecuador, they didn’t smell.  Is that happening to all the Ecuador rose farms or can she request Ecuador roses that smell?

The answer is that commercial Ecuador roses (probably all commercial roses) are hybrids that are focused on strength, color and durability at the expense of fragrance.  Most of the time Merri and I receive flowers that have aroma but not all the time.

The fragrance that roses have in natural condition that attracts bugs.

This is a reason why for commercial rose growing purposes that roses are cultivated so they do not have scent. Imagine over 100,000 roses at an Ecuador farm with fragrance, that attracts so many bugs that it would not be impossible to keep those bugs out of the fields.

Another reason is that fragrant roses tend to die sooner than roses that are not fragrant.

During shipping from Ecuador the roses expel gases.   Since the rose are shipped from Ecuador in a closed box the gases damage the flowers.

However there is a simple solution to have fragrant Ecuador roses that we use. We simply put a drop rose essential oil  in the water with our fresh Ecuador roses.  The fragrance is fantastic. If you want more, add a diffuser and the entire church will smell like a rose garden!

I sent this reader the solution and she replied:

Great idea on the oil.  I found out last night that that’s what my aunt did
on the wedding roses you sent for my reception too.  No wonder
they were so potent.  She says she does this all the time at home.

Having a bottle of Rose Otto essential oil around the house is a wonderful idea… to perk up the flowers in your home… to make rose water for drinking.  Merri and I put one drop on our pillow at night.  The fragrance is heavenly.

Rose is referred to as “The Queen of the Flowers”, and is the universal
symbol of all aspects of love.

Rose oil has been used for its medicinal properties and also has been the most prominent aroma for perfumes ever since human beings started using plants and essential oils for medicine and perfume.

There are many varieties of Rose essential oil, and the “Rosa damascena”
variety, a/k/a Rose otto (mostly from Bulgaria) is known as the very finest
of Rose oils. It is also one of the most expensive essential oils due to the
yield of oil per flower. It takes 300 lbs of rose petals to distill down to
1 oz of pure Rose essential oil.

The natural chemical make-up of rose is one of the most complex of all essential oils which is why it is so difficult to reproduce synthetically. This is good … Rose knows how to protect herself and deliver her true medicine and message from Mother Nature.

Rose is traditionally used to regulate the systems of the body, mind, and spirit. It
is the Oil of the Heart. It has been traditionally used for its antiseptic,
anti-inflammatory, and cooling properties.

Rose essential oil is one of the best essential oils for skin care … especially for sensitive and maturing skin. Put a drop on a cotton ball or handkerchief and keep this precious aroma carrying the true essence of the Rose flower around you.

Rose otto registers very high on the hertz frequency scale and delivers a
spiritual aroma. It can dramatically lift your spirits amongst the dross of
the world or the tasks of the day. It has always served human beings in the
most reverent way.

Our friend, the Oil Lady Candace Newman wrote:

Rose otto is the only one we carry … there are some other rose
oils.

Rose maroc is another well known one that is thicker and a deep red amber
color…it is a heavier rose and a little musky or earthy aroma as
compared to Rose otto.

Rose otto is the clearest and highest vibration and  aroma.

Putting a drop of rose oil on a 100% cotton, cotton ball …. or a
nice little handkerchief or piece of cloth, is a lovely way to enjoy the
aroma and have the properties of rose around you!

Candace also shared a tip for rose oil and weddings.

The purest and deepest rose aroma one can experience is pure Rose
essential oil. The most exquisite and well known as the finest of Rose oils
in the world is Rosa damascene … ie Rose otto, which  of course is also the dearest of them all.  There are 30 ml in an ounce which requires 300 pounds of rose petals.    Thus 4 mls of this oil is $196.95.

However, there are other varieties that are not as expensive.  There is Cabbage Rose (Rosa centifolia or Rose maroc) and another one is Tea
Rose ( Rosa indica).

To enhance the aroma of your flowers  add drops of rose oil to the flowers, or put a few drops in a bowl of warm water.  You can also put some in a room
diffuser…there are many on the market.

Tucking a cotton ball in close to your heart with 1-2 drops of Rose oil on it is absolutely lovely for yourself and everyone who comes anywhere near you. That would be lovely for the bride!  Cotton balls make perfect personal diffusers….as does a pretty lace handkerchief that she could carry or have in her bouquet.

Candace only offers rose otto essential oil which you can order here for $196.95.
