Mind Over Matter & Miracles


What a celebration this season can be…magic, miracles and belief.  Merri and I send our best wishes for a wonderful holiday.  We hope you are especially blessed with the special healing gift we have all been given, our eternal power of belief.

A National Geographic article “Mind Over Matter” (1) reminds us of this power and shares how to unlock the healing power we all have within.

The article says: “Science is showing that how you feel isn’t just about what you eat, or do, or think. It’s about what you believe.”

This article points out that belief has healing power whether it’s a touch of the Holy Spirit, a holy pilgrimage or a dip in the Ganges.

Studies suggest that regular religious services may improve the immune system, decrease blood pressure, add years to our lives. 

Religious faith is not the only type of belief that can make us feel and be inexplicably better.  There are many types of belief  that are so potent that they can heal.

There are numerous ways to unleash our inner energy.  Much of that power comes from our nonconscious reaction to social interaction.  The National Geographic article tells about a procedure performed at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota.  Medical bone cement was injected into spines of a group of patients to stabilize painful fractures.  Some of the patients received sham procedures instead.  Pain relief was almost the same in a control group as with those who had the actual procedure.

Another part of healing through belief is for the listener to make what is imagined feel real.  When the story we hear and our imagination are in tune, the results can be astounding.  This is the power of Christmas, a surround sound, full impact story of miracles.

The article explains that we have the power to change our health and that there are skills we can learn to do so.  It shows how to unlock our inner healing power as it explains a study with brain scans:

Normal pain sensations begin at an injury and travel in a split second up through the spine to a network of brain areas that recognize the sensation as pain.  A placebo response travels in the opposite direction, beginning in the brain.  An expectation of healing in the prefrontal cortex sends signals to parts of the brain stem, which creates opioids and releases them down to the spinal cord.  We don’t imagine we’re not in pain.  We self-medicate, literally, by expecting the relief we’ve been conditioned to receive.

The key to belief and experience working together are our social conditioning, our imagination and the power we gain from other believers.

For example, one MD who helps military service members and veterans with severe injuries looks for positive childhood experiences in his patients.   Take an example of a patient who had a good experience in which a eucalyptus tree or peppermint candy was involved.  When opioid painkillers are prescribed, “every time the patient takes a prescription, he would have eucalyptus oil to smell or  peppermint candy to eat”.  Over time the drugs can be reduced or eliminated and the taste, sounds or smells are used instead to turn on the patient’s brain’s internal pharmacy.

Social information also has a huge powerful impact in self healing.

The entire external surroundings we experience are part of our internal beliefs.  In the Western world,  the doctors in their white coats, stethoscopes around their necks; the nurses, checkups, tests, maybe even the antiseptic smell of the waiting room or hospital can contribute to belief.  Health care providers even call this “The theater of medicine”.

The theater we choose to believe is very specific to our own upbringing and surroundings

This stagecraft extends to many aspects of treatment and can operate on a subconscious level.  Expensive placebos work better than cheap ones.  Placebos in brand-name containers work better than those labeled generics.  Placebo suppositories work better in France, while the English prefer to swallow their placebos.  Often fake injections work better than fake pills. But fake surgeries seem to be the most powerful of all.

This year the social information in many places has been pretty confusing.  This can leave us uncertain about our health and well-being unless we realize that our internal healer is the most powerful of all.  When everything outside seems harsh and uncertain, we can know that we have everything we need…within.

Merri and I send our wishes for happy holidays and hope that this season awakens the amazing powers of healing that you have within.

Thanks – My Greatest Fear


Happy Thanksgiving Day.  I am most thankful that one of my great fears has been unfounded.  Merri’s and my friends Candace and John Newman have operated the Oil Lady essential oil business for nearly 30 years.  We have been among their best customers. We have gotten our essential oil perfumes, deodorants, soaps, shampoos, healing oils and gifts for our family since Candace began.

“What will we do when they retire” was a big question I asked myself again and again?  No longer.  Oil Lady Aromatherapy has been taken over by TK and Jesse Rodriguez.  They are keeping the same formulas and exacting care as John and Candace. We have met them and feel that this precious business could not be in better hands.

Essential Oils make great Christmas gifts.  After all the three wise men brought gold and essential oils.

frankincense

Oil Lady Frankincense and Myrrh tin.

The original Christmas gift was essential oils were frankincense and myrrh the essential oils.

These oils along with Rose Maroc all have a wonderful perfume and provide the huge benefit of reducing stress.

Anxiety is a natural response to stress.  Too much of it creates health risks.  For example, anxiety can cause memory loss and even double the risk of Alzheimer’s disease.  A team of researchers from the Alzheimer’s Disease Neuroimaging Initiative  did a three year study of 376 patients between the ages of 55 and 91 years-old. These patients had memory loss but not enough to be at risk because most people lose memory as they age.

The study showed that the subjects with more anxiety saw faster mental decline than those without it.  The greater the anxiety the faster memory capability was lost.  Subjects with the most anxiety had the fast loss and over twice the risk for Alzheimer’s Disease because anxiety shrinks the area of the brain that controls memory.

Numerous essential oils can help lower stress and reduce anxiety.  Rose Maroc, frankincense and myrrh are among the best essential oils for this process. They have the unique ability to calm the mind and body and improve performance.  I use these oils to sleep as well as perform better because they help me into a state of relaxed concentration.

Here’s Your Christmas Gift


Merry Christmas. We wish you a special day wherever you are in the world!

christmas

This year we are celebrating Christmas at our Florida home and Merri and I have organized a Christmas gift for you.

How magnificent this celebration, a fullness of light and positive energy so near the darkest, shortest day.

At Christmas we celebrate at dawn… the beginning… because somewhere the sun always shines.

christmas

Dawn at our Florida home.

Christmas Dawn brings a moment of silence, a brief stillness in our hearts that promises new beginnings, clean slate ahead and a breathless expectancy of more and better ahead.  This moment embeds the heart of the mid winter solstice in our hearts and unites us in eternal new beginnings that we can celebrate today.

Merri and I send our best wishes that each of you, our friends, are filled with inner joy and peace each and every day.

We have prepared a special report that outlines seven of the most important steps you can take for better natural health.    You can download Seven, Simple, Inexpensive Steps For Better Health here FREE as our Christmas gift to you.

Holiday Book List


Here are some good books to read that also make great gifts.  Good writers are normally avid readers.  If you write as I do, you read a lot and love to share the books you enjoy.  I believe you enjoy the books below and may want to share them as holiday gifts.  Most of these great books have been written mostly by friends that Merri and I are blessed to have met and get to know.  We feel honored to have such talented acquaintances who enlighten our lifestyle’s path.  We love them and their books and know you will enjoy their writing as well. 

Freedom

Our websites and daily messages are for like minded souls with common interests.  The one main theme that bonds us the most is our desire for freedom.  Whether we seek it in our banking, our health, investing, our writing, business, in Ecuador or wherever we are we wish to be independent and free.

The three books below are great works that look at freedom in different ways.

One of the most formative books I read when in high school was Ayn Rand’s “Atlas Shrugged”.  Being a student in the 1960s, the book did not resonate at a visceral.  There was no government intrusion, no taxes no red tape no restrictions on my freedom that I was aware of in my life then.  Yet the images of Hank Rearden have remained all these years.

Get  details on “Atlas Shrugged”  by Ayn Rand here.

Now there is a new book, “The End of Secrets” written by Ryan Quinn that admittedly follows a similar plot to Atlas Shrugged but looks at the risk to our freedoms in today’s digital world.  This is a must read for and freedom lover who passes a camera, uses a computer or a cell phone.

End of Secrets

See details on “End of Secrets” by Ryan Quinn at Amazon.com

Wool, written by our friend Hugh Howey is a page turner that shows how governments can pull the wool over your eyes.  The Wool Omnibus includes all five books in the Wool series.

wool

See details on “Wool Omnibus” by Hugh Howey at Amazon.com here.

Art is not the first thing that comes to mind when one thinks of Freedom or the the New York Times.  However  since its inception in 1970 art has played a very important journalistic role in communicating editorial ideas, even at a subconscious level.  For 30 years our friend Jerelle  Kraus, was art director for the Op-Ed page at the Times.  Now Jerelle provides a detailed analysis of the art on the Op-Ed page, from its inception in 1970 to today in her book  “All the Art That’s Fit to Print (And Some That Wasn’t): Inside The New York Times Op-Ed Page”

Jerelle believes that the groundbreaking pictures changed the very purpose and potential of illustrations… to stir the political and cultural pot.  Her book looks at the controversies associated with the publication or rejection of serious art.  Her book serves as a chronicle of late 20th-century history, replete with sardonic images of tyrants and visual commentaries on the fall of communism; the works of Eastern Europeans who fled totalitarian regimes are some of the most challenging and resonant.  In this overflowing treasure chest of ideas, politics and cultural critiques, Jerelle proves that art is dangerous and sometimes necessary in the pursuit of freedom.

History

Bob Gandt is a good friend and a great writer.  Two of his books, Skygods and Twilight Warriors are great reads as they share stories about important parts of American history.

Skygods is an interesting book but more… it is a mirror reflecting the rise and fall of a generational wave.

We can use these mirrors to see crests and troughs as the natural rhythm of things. Understanding these up and down paths can help us better understand how to be in the right place at exactly the right time.

skygods

See details about “Skygods the Fall of Pan Am” at Amazon.com

twilight warriors

This is a great book as it recollects the history of the men and women who have fought a battle that changed our world.

“The Twilight Warriors”, written by Bob Gandt, tells the story of the deadliest battle of WWII, the invasion of Okinawa.  This was the battle that convinced Harry Truman to use the Atom bomb and forever change the world.

Bob, a good friend and great writer tells the story through the eyes of real life heroes in Air Group 10.  This book was given the RADM Samuel Eliot Morison Award for Naval Literature and Bob was honored by the Naval Order of the United States for it.  Gandt has crafted this historical literature as a compelling read.  It is impossible to put the book down because he has personalized the story so well.

Books written by delegates from our Writer’s Camps.

Merri and I are fortunate to receive a steady stream of books from delegates who come to our Writer’s Camp.  Here are a few.

Two holiday health recipes at Amazon.com can help balance the indulgences of the season.

One Christmas treat we’ll have for sure at our house is a “New Orleans-Espresso-Infused-Chocolate-Quinoa-Cake” prepared from a recipe by Writer’s Camp delegate Jamie Alexander.

Dark chocolate has health benefits that create a great excuse to eat real chocolate! Now with Jamie’s recipe we have another excellent reason why chocolate should be part of our holiday health fare.

Jamie attended our Writer’s Camp and brought one of the most delicious health cakes we have ever tasted. The main essential ingredient is avocados instead of shortening and fat and cream. I promise you… you could not guess that there was avocado. The flavor and moistness of that cake was simply outstanding. Delegates (as well as Merri and I) devoured this delicious but really healthy cake.

We encouraged Jamie to publish her recipes at Amazon.com and she has two available for the holidays.

Both cakes unite the North American holiday spirit with the Andean super healthy food, quinoa.

You have my word for it, this cake is delicious and there is not an ounce of sugar or white flour in it!

The second healthy holiday recipe is for a Pumpkin Cranberry Quinoa cake.

The Teacher

The Teacher

This is a brand new book written by Writer’s Camp delegate James Cory Michaels. I have not read it yet (Merri says its a real page turner) but intend to over the holiday season as Michaels say this is book that fundamentalist Christians don’t want you to read. He writes “Today’s fundamentalist Christians are expecting the second coming with the rapture, Armageddon, the anti-Christ and ultimate destruction of the earth. What would happen if they got another baby like Jesus? Would today’s world and the people of faith recognize Him, or would He go completely unrecognized, and would they despise Him, fear Him and ultimately destroy Him? “Teacher” is a novel that explores that question.

An ideal way to fund your freedom is with self-publishing. Self-publishing don’t need a publisher and don’t need to print hundreds of books. It is much better to start with a book you sell in digital format on Amazon.com Plus you can tap in to the power of the largest bookstore on the planet, Amazon.com, to sell your books. Amazon has over 2.5 million credit cards on file for buyers who prefer to buy your books with 1-Click!.

A book does not need to be a novel. But it could be. Instead you can write about things you are passionate about. Do you love to make cookies? You could write a cookie cookbook complete with photos of yummy cookies. Are you great at finding bargains at flea markets and garage sales? You could share your tips and tricks for what to look for and how to negotiate a great price. Do you love fishing? Write a book about your secrets to catching lots of fish. Or, when you are traveling overseas, you can write about your adventures overseas.

Essential Oil Christmas Gifts


Essential Oils make great Christmas gifts.  After all the three wise men brought gold and essential oils.

olove wood

One great Christmas gift is a stress reduction bowl and sandalwood essential oil like this one that sits on my office desk.

This bowl was carved in Tunisia and is seasoned with East Indian Sandalwood oil.  See how it can reduce stress below.

Anxiety is a natural response to stress.  Too much of it creates health risks.  For example, anxiety can cause memory loss and even double the risk of Alzheimer’s disease.  A team of researchers from the Alzheimer’s Disease Neuroimaging Initiative  did a three year study of 376 patients between the ages of 55 and 91 years-old.

Numerous essential oils can help lower stress and reduce anxiety.  Sandalwood is one of the best essential oils for this process as it has a unique ability to calm the mind and body and improve performance.  I use my olive wood bowl with East Indian sandalwood essential oil because  it helps me into a state of relaxed concentration.

The Most Special Gift of Christmas


Here is the Christmas gift of silence.  What a special day! How magnificent that we celebrate this great power of light and positive energy so near the darkest, shortest day of the year.

gary-scott-sunrise tags:"2012-4-18"

Christmas  dawn at our home.

This the day of birth… of dawn and all things positive… peace… inner silence… calm… positive hopes of goodness for all… and the knowledge that no time is ever too late… because the darkest hour and deepest silence are the seeds for the greatest music and brightest light.

Silence is the great path to happiness.

Our Christmas gift to readers is always,  a quote from The Winter Solstice, the Sacred Traditions of Christmas by John Mathews.

“There is a moment of silence that occurs every year, somewhere between the dawn of Christmas and the setting sun on Christmas day itself. – a moment we have all experienced once in our lives, maybe more than once. It can silence a great city, London or New York , and it can bring stillness to our hearts, whoever and wherever we may be. It offers the promise of new beginnings, of the clean slate of a new year, and it incorporates the breathless expectancy of Christmas night itself, when a familiar figure enters our lives and changes them briefly. It is such a moment that lies at the heart of the mid winter solstice and it is the celebration of this that this book is written.”

There is scientific evidence that silence is the most powerful path to happiness.  Scientists from University of Queensland in Australia and University of California at Berkeley  studied 76 Tibetan monks looked at how meditation in silence can affect the brain.

These experiments found that meditation improves “perceptual rivalry,” a process that takes place when two different images are presented to each eye.   Meditating on a single object or thought, created the ability to extend perceptual dominance.  One monk was able to maintain constant visual perception for 723 seconds. The average visual perception for control students was 2.6 seconds.

MRI scans revealed that because of meditation, one 66-year-old monk, has the largest capacity for happiness ever recorded. University of Wisconsin researchers, led by Davidson, hooked up 256 sensors to his head, and found that this monk had an unusually large propensity for happiness and reduced tendency toward negativity from actual changes in the brain.

Such studies show that this meditation in silence actually changes the brain and creates particular changes in the neural networks.  Normally thinking causes the brain to switch between the beta network (which deals with on tasks outside the body) and other brainwave networks, that tap into deeper inner self-reflective and emotional intelligence.   These outer and inner networks rarely work together.  Research has found that brains of experienced meditators are able to keep both networks active at the same time… thus giving logical thinking access to our deeper intellect.

Merri and I send our best wishes to you for silence filled with  a silent, inner joy and peace over this special time of celebration and in every day.

Christmas Silence


Silence… what a gift at Christmas.   How wonderful that humanity celebrates  the spirit of giving and gratitude around the year’s darkest hour.

In these times when so much public attention is focused on darkness and negativity it is extra special that we  celebrate the beauty of life’s ebb and flow…. beginning and ending in silence.

The darkest hour has long been seen as the beginning of dawn.   The English theologian Thomas Fuller put the idea in print in his religious travelogue “A Pisgah-Sight Of Palestine And The Confines Thereof, 1650”.  He worte: It is always darkest just before the Day dawneth.

My Irish ancestors sang of this in songs and ballads:   An upbeat  saying amongst the Irish peasantry to inspire hope under the adverse circumstances they faced was  that the darkest hour of all. is the hour before day.

Harriet Beacher Stowe wrote: Never give up, for that is just the place and time that the tide will turn.

To celebrate the wonder and power and joy in silence, we send as a Christmas gift to you, a quote from The Winter Solstice, the Sacred Traditions of Christmas by John Mathews.

There is a moment of silence that occurs every year, somewhere between the dawn of Christmas and the setting sun on Christmas day itself. – a moment we have all experienced once in our lives, maybe more than once. It can silence a great city, London or New York , and it can bring stillness to our hearts, whoever and wherever we may be. It offers the promise of new beginnings, of the clean slate of a new year, and it incorporates the breathless expectancy of Christmas night itself, when a familiar figure enters our lives and changes them briefly. It is such a moment that lies at the heart of the mid winter solstice and it is the celebration of this that this book is written.”

A second gift to you today is our wish for better health… an a report on “How to Maintain a Healthy Weight” and much more.

This holiday season can be a time when weight gain stacks up as an unwanted holiday present.

This report shows three utterly simple ways to control weight and right now… it is yours for the reading.   Enjoy the benefits of more energy from these really simple but incredibly powerful ideas on this special holiday.

Merri, David and I send our special best wishes to you and thank you for inviting us into your holiday home.

P.S.  A reader sent this blessed gift to Merri, me and the rose growers in Ecuador.

Merri and Gary,  Merry Christmas, I am in tears here looking at my wife’s Ecuadorian Roses. I thank you for presenting this opportunity to help those of LOTS and also bring these roses to my wife. We are close to destitute these days from circumstances and we will have a very spartan Christmas, however these well received roses have brought a peaceful beauty and scents of love into our house. I thank the Ecuadorians for their care with these roses and am grateful to you for facilitating a major portion of my purchase to help those there in need more than me.  Again thank you Gary & Merri, for all the good you do.  “May the wind be always at your back and may the Lord hold you in the hollow of his hand”  Merry Christmas, with love and appreciation”

Merri and I thank all of you for ordering roses in the holidays.  We have been able to help provide scholarships… rebuild schools and assist indigenous Ecuadorians with your rose orders.

Merry Christmas and thanks again for sharing this year with us.

Gary Scott is Nuts


“Gary Scott is nuts about Ecuador roses”.

Somebody said I am nuts about Ecuador roses.  What can I say?  I love them. The rooms in our home seem empty without roses.

This means there are some special Christmas savings and a new package that reduces the cost of Ecuador roses from Christmas.

First here is a tip on how to make your Ecuador roses last… and last…. and last.

Ecuador-Roses

For example here are some roses going on two weeks that still look great.

A friend who recently ordered a bundle of Ecuador roses sen this note.

Gary, Since this is our first experience with “fresh cut and shipped roses” we did a little research about proper care upon arrival.  Some of it seems a little over kill but basically I bleached a 5 gal bucket, filled it with luke warm water plus plant food then cut the stems at 45 degree angle while under water then quickly moved them to the bucket.  After 2 hours in the water to stablize them I unwrapped the blooms gently to let them start expanding and breath.  Tomorrow we will prepare 3 vases with warm water and plant food and move them to the final vases.  The directions say to “redo” them every 2-3 day’s with fresh water and more plant food and they should last for weeks—we’ll see. :-)   Thanks for your help—-Roberto seems to be a very nice man.

Those are really good steps for making roses last a long time… but I added a few more tips and wrote:

That’s the full Monte of flower care!

Ecuador-roses

2 dozen Ecuador roses.

Here are a few more tips that will help you enjoy the beauty of your Ecuador roses for a longer time.

First keep off TV or any electronic and out of any breezes.

Do not crowd the flowers. I have found that 12 or 18 roses in a vase will last longer than 24.  They open better and last longer.

For example the 24 above in one vase won’t last as long as if I split them up like these below.

Ecuador-Roses

white and bi color.

Ecuador-Roses

The nature of the flower also has an impact.  Some roses have quite a large stem and a smaller head. These last longest.

The roses with thin stems and larger heads do not last as long.    As soon as they start to dip their heads, I cut them fairly short and put them in a short vase… they continue to look great like these which are now about two weeks old.

Ecuador-Roses

The bi colors below are a really long lasting rose.

Ecuador-roses

I find that putting just a few roses in a vase, like these three which are about two weeks old, causes them to really last for a long time also.

Now Order 25 Roses

For the first time ever we have been able to arrange delivery of smaller amounts (25) of fresh Ecuador roses.   see details below.

25 roses in our dining room.

Ecuador fresh cut Christmas Roses can be ordered from now until noon EST December 16, 2012.

Red Christmas roses at our house.

A reader sent this holiday note:  We ordered 100 roses thru Gary and Merri Scott to be delivered to our present address in California for distribution among eight ladies in the family on Thanksgiving day.

The flowers arrived Tuesday, two days before the holiday just as promised by Fed-Ex. They were tightly packed in four bunches of 25 each.  They were divided into 7 dozen + 16 that ended up with my bride of 41 years. Normally with local U.S. roses one cuts the stems at a sharp angle on the bottom and stores them in the refrigerator for a couple days. The roses from Ecuador have stems on them over four feet long. These long stemmed beauties cannot fit into any domestic refrig. that I know of. Place them loosely packed into deep heavy vases full of fresh cold water and the buds open into the largest blooms you have ever seen. Change the water often enough and they will look beautiful for over two weeks. We nursed ours along for three weeks.  Jump in, – the water is fine. You will be glad that you did. Will be interested in hearing about your experience.

Take time to smell the roses and be good to yourself.

Sunday December 16, 2012 is the last day left to order Ecuador Christmas roses for Thursday December 20, 2012  delivery only.

The Ecuador rose plantation offers two color choices,  farm choice assorted or red and white (on orders of 50 and 100 roses). There is a $10 surcharge per 50 for the red and white rose selection.

Merri and I love Ecuador for the warmth and friendliness in the hearts of its people. We also love Ecuador’s beauty.  When an opportunity to send Ecuador roses and raise money for the poor occurred earlier this year, we grabbed the chance.

The first I wrote about Ecuador Christmas roses, we made a special offer and sold over 20,000 roses that raised $8,000 to help Ecuador’s poor. The money was used to provide schooling for gifted indigenous children, to buy a  InFocus projector used in our free English classes for Ecuadorian children and help repair an Ecuadorian school.  Since then our rose sales have been helping send Ecuador children to school.

There and then I decided to continually offer Ecuador roses.

The minute I receive your order, I’ll put you directly in touch with the rose plantation who will reserve your color option either red and white, or farm’s choice.

There are five ways to obtain fresh cut Ecuador roses for Christmas.

#1: We provide a service called Ecuador Living to assist those with a genuine and immediate interest in Ecuador. This service shares our continual research and experiences in global business, living and investing in Ecuador plus our contacts. We feel the service is a bargain at $119 a year.

Fedex will deliver the 50 Ecuador farm choice roses directly to you from Ecuador.  Open them. If you are not satisfied that these are truly remarkable roses, give them back to the Fedex driver and let me know. I’ll give you a full refund.

To assure the refund, your address must be correct and you must inspect the flowers with Fedex when they are delivered. If you are not satisfied, the roses must be returned at the time of delivery.   You must assure that someone is at the receiving address who is available to inspect and sign for the roses to assure the guarantee.

This is not a deal that helps my pocketbook.  We donate more than this for scholarships to help the Ecuador children.  That’s okay…the cause is worthy.  Merri and I will share the joy of the gifts you help make… Christmas gifts for poor children in Ecuador.

Premium Quality Roses

Though this is perhaps the lowest price for roses you will see, these roses are special, not like anything offered in a store or even at most florists. These are premium roses with extra large heads that open fully.

Fresher Quality Roses

Most roses go from Ecuador to Miami by air then are stored in Miami then shipped by truck until they sit in a store. They can be a week or more old when you see them. The roses you receive from this offer are cut and stored overnight, driven by refrigerated truck to Quito Airport and flown to Miami to a special refrigerated Fedex facility until, then flown to your Fedex destination for immediate delivery to your home or office. This means they last longer.

The roses your receive are certified by Veriflora. The VERIFLORA seal is a real, green program that regularly spot check farms for ecologically sound systems that include:

1- Water and ecological conservation: implementing water management systems to prevent depletion of fresh water supplies.

2- Product quality: implementing practices to ensure the quality of the product through the whole chain of delivery to the final consumer.

3- Advanced agricultural practices: integrating organic practices wherever possible. To only use approved green label certified pesticides. To allow no discharge of pesticides run off into the environment.

4- Waste management: recycling and composting as well as the proper disposal of agricultural chemicals.

By March of 2007 the co-op that sends your roses had certified 144 acres.

Certification means the growers have met or exceeded the requirements. There is no middle ground with Veriflora, no differing levels of certification. You either are ecologically sound and certified, or you aren’t.

That means you receive environmentally friendly roses.

Red Christmas roses at our house.

A reader sent this holiday note:  We ordered 100 roses thru Gary and Merri Scott to be delivered to our present address in California for distribution among eight ladies in the family on Thanksgiving day.

The flowers arrived Tuesday, two days before the holiday just as promised by Fed-Ex. They were tightly packed in four bunches of 25 each.  They were divided into 7 dozen + 16 that ended up with my bride of 41 years. Normally with local U.S. roses one cuts the stems at a sharp angle on the bottom and stores them in the refrigerator for a couple days. The roses from Ecuador have stems on them over four feet long. These long stemmed beauties cannot fit into any domestic refrig. that I know of. Place them loosely packed into deep heavy vases full of fresh cold water and the buds open into the largest blooms you have ever seen. Change the water often enough and they will look beautiful for over two weeks. We nursed ours along for three weeks.  Jump in, – the water is fine. You will be glad that you did. Will be interested in hearing about your experience.

Take time to smell the roses and be good to yourself.

Sunday December 16, 2012 is the last day left to order Ecuador Christmas roses for Thursday December 20, 2012  delivery only.

I learned last year that Ecuador roses can fill some shopping gaps and send roses to others for their holiday cheer.  Christmas shopping done..hooray!

Your roses include a personalized card so you can have fresh Ecuador Christmas roses yourself or send them as gifts.

New 25 Roses in Assorted Colors.

Normally, you can have 50 fresh cut roses from Ecuador delivered to any zip code in the USA…including Hawaii or Alaska including shipping for only $91 or better still get 50 Ecuador Christmas roses at half price.

This year for the first time our supplier in Ecuador is offering a package of 25 farm choice assorted color roses for $79.  Order 25 roses here. Order 25 fresh cut Ecuador roses for $79 here.

The Ecuador rose plantation offers two color choices,  farm choice assorted or red and white (on orders of 50 and 100 roses). There is a $10 surcharge per 50 for the red and white rose selection.

Merri and I love Ecuador for the warmth and friendliness in the hearts of its people. We also love Ecuador’s beauty.  When an opportunity to send Ecuador roses and raise money for the poor occurred earlier this year, we grabbed the chance.

The first I wrote about Ecuador Christmas roses, we made a special offer and sold over 20,000 roses that raised $8,000 to help Ecuador’s poor. The money was used to provide schooling for gifted indigenous children, to buy a  InFocus projector used in our free English classes for Ecuadorian children and help repair an Ecuadorian school.  Since then our rose sales have been helping send Ecuador children to school.

There and then I decided to continually offer Ecuador roses.

The minute I receive your order, I’ll put you directly in touch with the rose plantation who will reserve your color option either red and white, or farm’s choice.

There are five ways to obtain fresh cut Ecuador roses for Christmas.

#1: We provide a service called Ecuador Living to assist those with a genuine and immediate interest in Ecuador. This service shares our continual research and experiences in global business, living and investing in Ecuador plus our contacts. We feel the service is a bargain at $119 a year.  

Subscribe to Ecuador Living Premium Service with your Christmas rose order, I’ll reduce the 25 rose price from $79 to $50. You get your fresh cut, premium roses at less than half price. You save $29.

Fedex will deliver the 50 Ecuador farm choice roses directly to you from Ecuador.  Open them. If you are not satisfied that these are truly remarkable roses, give them back to the Fedex driver and let me know. I’ll give you a full refund.

To assure the refund, your address must be correct and you must inspect the flowers with Fedex when they are delivered. If you are not satisfied, the roses must be returned at the time of delivery.   You must assure that someone is at the receiving address who is available to inspect and sign for the roses to assure the guarantee.

 #2: If you do not have a great interest in Ecuador but just want these incredible, fresh roses,  it’s easy to just order them for $79 for 25 roses or $91 for 50 fresh cut roses including delivery by Fedex. ($10 surcharge for red & white roses).

This is not a deal that helps my pocketbook.  We donate more than this for scholarships to help the Ecuador children.  That’s okay…the cause is worthy.  Merri and I will share the joy of the gifts you help make… Christmas gifts for poor children in Ecuador.
