Flowers Are the Hot New Beauty Ingredient — Here's Why - POPSUGARTuesday, May 30, 2017
EB Florals perfume line. Now, he's turning the Sultry Rose scent from his unisex line into a series of Smoke & Roses spa treatments available exclusively at the Ritz Carlton in Los Angeles. During the Smoke & Roses Body Polish treatment, rose oil is used to tone and revitalize the skin after an exfoliating scrub, while heated rose oil aids in loosening tense muscles during the full-body massage. "When the scent of flowers mixes with your body chemistry, the scent goes a different way," says Buterbagh. The city of Carlsbad, CA, is taking the blooming beauty trend one step further, with a 10-day celebration of floral wellness. Select hotel spas will offer a slew of botanical-themed renewal treatments and aromatherapy classes during the event, called Petal to Plate, at the end of April. Flowers, specifically hibiscus, will be used in everything from facials to foot scrubs, while aromatherapy classes will teach attendees about the benefits of floral-infused essential oils. So what's next for the flower-fueled beauty trend? According to Hirsch, chamomile essential oil and extract are poised to become the next hot ingredients thanks to their calming and anti-inflammatory properties. Another ingredient to watch is love-in-a-mist seed oil, another Cleopatra favorite, which is packed with antioxidants. As Hirsch sees it, any interest in plant-based beauty is ultimately a win. "I just want people to be excited by plants," says Hirsch. "I think people forget how closely our lives are tied to them." Image Source: POPSUGAR Photography / Sheila GimLet's block ads! (Wh...

Beloved Boise High teacher requested no funeral or flowers, but there are scholarships - Idaho StatesmanTuesday, January 17, 2017
John “Keith” Carlton, who died Monday night after a brief illness, was a private person who asked only that people consider contributing to a scholarship fund in his name, according to an obituary printed in the Idaho Statesman Friday.According to his obituary, Carlton had cancer but “insisted on completing the fall semester of classes rather than focus on treatment.”Carlton, 67, was in his 40th year as golf coach and history and government teacher at Boise High School, and his death rocked his colleagues, students, alumni and their families. Admirers flooded social media with tributes, and Principal Robb Thompson called him “an icon at Boise High.”“At Carlton’s request, no services will be held. He also requested that no flowers be sent,” the obituary states. “The family intends to hold its version of an Irish wake in the not-too-distant future and will provide a general notice for those interested in attending.”Anyone interested can contribute to the John Keith Carlton Scholarship Fund at the Boi... http://www.idahostatesman.com/news/local/community/boise/article124979884.html

Citizen of the Year: Catlins fantastic florist - Champaign/Urbana News-GazetteTuesday, January 08, 2019
Tim, then a manager trainee.She and Tim married in May 1987. That October, Tim's job with the department store took them to Iowa and then Nebraska, Kansas, Wyoming and Minnesota. In Nebraska, Welsh — who continued to work as a florist out west — directed community theater, served on the Miss Nebraska Pageant board of directors and directed the pageant for three years. In Wyoming, she was involved with the Cheyenne Frontier Days, billed as the world's largest outdoor rodeo and western celebration.In 2004, the couple and their young son, Tanner, moved back to Catlin to be near family. A couple of years later, Welsh opened Floral-n-Flair, a flower shop and event-planning business, in the same downtown building she started out in. She and business partner Kay Smoot also own and operate a gift boutique called Pauline's Attic.Welsh was working one evening when Stutsman popped in."Who got it, and how are we going to decorate?" she asked, thinking he'd stopped by to discuss the Citizen of the Year banquet at the Methodist Church, which she decorates.She was floored by his answer."It still hasn't sunk in," she said, the day before the banquet.While honored, Welsh was quick to acknowledge her "crew," including local high school students and residents who help her set up for community events, weddings and parties — and family. Tanner, who turns 21 this month, has autism, and Tim is his full-time caregiver and still finds time to help out at work."I wouldn't be able to do any of this without him," she said."It's always been a team effort," she continued, adding she learned that from her dad who helped out in many ways at the shop and home before he passed away a couple of years ago.Welsh recalled sitting at the family table years ago after her brother became a 1,000-yard rusher on his high school football team."My dad pointed to his picture on the front of the sports page and said, 'He wouldn't have done that without his line that blocked for him.' I've always remembered that. You can't do it alone. You have to surround yourself with good people and work as a team."... http://www.news-gazette.com/noelle-mcgee/2018-11-01/citizen-the-year-catlins-fantastic-florist.html
Flowers Done Green - local flower shop keeps it unexpected - Volume OneMonday, December 17, 2018
Central American farms, she brings out the best of the seasonal options, accentuating them with plants from a Minnesota greenhouse.“We don’t have to always go looking to the exotic to find something exceptionally beautiful,” Sarah said. “We’re celebrating what’s beautiful about Wisconsin.”Sarah is also celebrating sustainability through her choices in product. She recalls a conversation with a fellow florist from ten years ago, when her coworker expressed concern the effect of floral industry chemicals on fertility. Before then, she hadn’t realized the proliferation of carcinogenic chemicals in pesticides and plastics associated with flower arranging. Sarah aims to carry as many organic, recycled, and locally grown products as possible to avoid negative environmental impact.Many of Sarah’s arrangements are presented in thrifted tins, glassware, and pots. On a recent Friday, she placed a bridal bouquet in a mason jar of water to preserve it until pick-up. She wraps bouquets in paper and keeps corsages in recycled plastic take-out containers, opting for recycled boxes over new when she can to prevent waste.“We have alternatives (to waste and pesticides), so I feel like it’s my calling to use them,” Sarah said.Sarah’s arrangements are eclectic and adventurous, sometimes sporting dinosaur figurines and locally foraged mushrooms among dill and other unexpected plants. “My woods have given me an endless source of inspiration,” she said – she often includes found items such as bird feathers in her work. Among the arrangements in the shop are products by other local artists and makers, including soaps by EB Ranch, felted animals by Mary Marin, even stones and crystals collected by a local 13-year-old.Sarah has more than 25 years of experience in the floral industry, getting her start in the Twin Cities where it’s often viewed as a true art. She’s proud to bring her interpretation of that art, with all of its eccentricities and focus on promoting local products. &l... https://volumeone.org/articles/2018/11/28/27005_flowers_done_green

This pretty flower is a weed; Get rid of it fast!Tuesday, August 28, 2018
Lenore Grande, Moorhead.A: Your unsuccessful experience with Endless Summer is similar to the majority of those who have tried it in North Dakota and large parts of Minnesota. The basic problem is that the Endless Summer group of hydrangeas, including Bloomstruck, are members of the Hydrangea macrophylla species, which is the species of the non-adapted florist hydrangeas.The two hydrangea species that are best-adapted for our outdoor landscapes are Hydrangea paniculata and Hydrangea arborescens and their cultivars. Checking the fine print on hydrangea labels for the species saves much heartache.Because Bloomstruck is a Hydrangea macrophylla variety, it has a disadvantage in our region from the onset because of its genetics. Bloomstruck is fairly new, so time will tell, but it would be surprising if it performs better than its genetics allow.Q: Is it okay to prune the top of our arborvitae so that it doesn't grow too tall? Its width is fine, but the top is at about 8 feet and we'd like it to stay at that height. — Nancy Suttle, West Fargo.A: Yes, the tops of pyramidal arborvitae can be trimmed so they don't become too tall. If an arborvitae is allowed to grow out of bounds, it's difficult to radically reduce its height back down to desired size. Your idea of maintaining it at 8 feet from the start is much better than someday trying to cut a tall arborvitae back down to that level.Keeping a shrub or tree at its present size through pruning is often called "mold and hold" pruning. Several times during the growing season, prune off the current season's new growth so the arborvitae remains at the desired height. Some pyramidal arborvitae varieties' natural heights are 30 feet, so diligence may be needed to maintain at 8 feet.To hold an arborvitae at its present size, it's probably necessary to trim once in June or July and again in August. A quick trim across the top a couple times each summer should do it.If you have a gardening or lawn care question, email Don Kinzler at ForumGrowingTogether@hotmail.com.
