Rosey World

Roses are a representative of love and romance. It only takes a look at a rose to know why.

City From Above

Cities are known for their large population, high traffic and busy life styles. They have everything one needs in life ranging from career to leisure. They are full of diversity, different culture, people, generation, etc. And yet sometimes, the information we get from this diversity is too much. There is so much to try out, so much to offer, and the beauty, well the beauty of the city sometimes just gets lost within the different activities going on. Is´nt it amazing how most times, the only people that take time to admire a city are the people that do not live there? Is it because the inhabitants got used to everything or is  it the lack of time? I believe cities have more beauty to offer than we usually like to admit. We sometimes need to get out of our city to see how beautiful it is.

So i went to the Alps with my class and i couldn´t help but marvel at the greatness and beauty of this landscape.

Living Art

I love anything that has to do  with art. I love to try out different styles and see the outcome.
But one thing i love most about art is the process of developing an art piece. When you have found your inspiration, the art flows out of you and you forget everything around you. I sometimes don´t want to leave my drawing table until my piece is complete. Yet experience has taught me that there are some pieces that are so delicate. They can not be finished in one day. They need time. And the longer you invest, the more you get attached to an art piece. In your art, you share a piece of you for the world to see. You speak with your hands, to the heart through the eyes.


Uses for Lemon Essential Oil

In the home:

  • Combine 2–3 drops of lemon essential oil with water in a spray bottle to help clean surfaces.
  • Add 10–15 drops of lemon essential oil to a gallon of natural carpet cleaning solution to help pull out stains, brighten carpet and rugs, and leave a fresh smell in the room.
  • Use as a stain remover for laundry.
  • Use 1–2 drops to remove gum, oil, grease spots, glue or adhesive, and crayon from most surfaces. Best natural Goo-Gone!
  • Place a few drops of lemon essential oil on a cotton ball and put in the refrigerator, or garbage can to help eliminate odors.
  • Add lemon essential oil to baking soda and water and use as an all natural soft scrub.
  • To clean and increase the shelf life of fresh fruits and vegetables, fill a bowl with cool water and 2-3 drops of lemon essential oil. Place produce in water, stir around so all surfaces come in contact with the lemon.
  • Soak dish clothes in a bowl of water with 1-2 drops of lemon essential oil overnight to naturally clean.
  • For a natural furniture polish, add several drops to a half cup of olive oil or beeswax.

For the body:

  • Add lemon essential oil to a cup of water in the morning. It's full of antioxidants.
  • Add to water or a smoothie for a refreshing pick-me-up. (SO tasty and uplifting!)
  • Add several drops of lemon essential oil to a chicken marinade for a delicious dinner.
  • Apply a drop of lemon oil to the tongue to freshen breath.

For the mind:

  • Inhale lemon essential oil or place a few drops on a cotton ball to replenish your mind, body, and spirit.
  • Place a drop in your hands to inhale, rub a drop into long or short hair, or diffuse through the room during times to uplift the spirits.

Cautions When Using Lemon Essential Oil

Lemon is photosensitive. This means that lemon oil can cause the skin to burn if exposed to sunlight after applying the oil. Avoid applying to skin that will be exposed to sunlight or UV light within 24 hours.
