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

A hard year for farmers - Southwest JournalTuesday, August 13, 2019
Montgomery, Minn. “Usually I get to play hide-and-seek in the tomatoes. … We just have to keep trying, and hope for better next year. It’s nature. What can you do?”Southern Minnesota’s 2019 growing season has experienced almost twice as much rain as a normal year, according to Natalie Hoidal, who monitors weather maps as a University of Minnesota Extension Educator in Fruit and Vegetable Production Systems. Farmers report a range of problems related to wet weather, Hoidal said. A plant sitting in a flooded field can essentially drown, because it struggles to take up oxygen and nutrients. A tractor can’t enter a wet field, and even walking on the field can compact wet soil. By getting into fields late, there is more competition with weeds already coming up. Most diseases do well in humid conditions, and recent years haven’t seen the typical July drying-out period. At the Linden Hills Farmers Market, wet and cold weather cost Racing Heart Farm about a month’s delay, although overall they said the season is going well. “We had just seeded carrots and then there was a huge two-and-a-half inch downpour,” said farmer Les Macare. “The goats are the worst,” said Mary Falk, proprietor of LoveTree Farmstead Cheese. Her grass-fed goats don’t want to graze when it’s hot, and they don’t want to graze when it’s rainy, she said. She hopes there will be enough hay for the winter, as it’s taken longer to get equipment out into fields to harvest. Farming since 1986, she’s noticed stronger storms in recent years.“Everything is more intense when it happens,” she said.Buttermilk Falls farmers at the Linden Hills Farmers Market.Ed Usset, grain market economist at the University of Minnesota, said that on his “60-mile-an-hour crop tour” of the state, the crop is highly variable and late as it’s ever been. He can find the “best-looking corn you’ve ever seen” near washed-out, unplanted fields 15 miles away. Wet weather is a local... https://www.southwestjournal.com/news/2019/08/a-hard-year-for-farmers/
St. Paul honors boxing club, German-style brewery, fourth-generation florist and bread deliverers - St. Paul Pioneer PressThursday, May 02, 2019
After a historic building restoration that took five years, Tom Schroeder opened the brewery and restaurant in a former German lager saloon that dates back to 1857 — six months before Minnesota became a state.Schroeder thanked city staff and former City Council Member Dave Thune, who helped him navigate 14 public hearings and rewrite city code to allow a commercial use within a historic building on a residential street. “Dave, without your support, we would not have opened,” Schroeder said.Brake Bread at 1174 West Seventh St. won the “Good Neighbor” award, which honors a business that shows a dedication to improving the community. The bakery and cafe, which opened in 2014, uses local ingredients and delivers baked bread to subscribers by bicycle. Owners Nate Houge and Micah Taylor frequently participate in charitable fundraisers and offer a “Share the Loaf” program where subscribers can buy bread for others.Information on how to nominate a business for recognition is online at stpaul.gov/bizawards. https://www.twincities.com/2019/04/14/st-paul-honors-boxing-club-german-style-brewery-fourth-generation-florist-and-bread-deliverers/
St. Paul paper artist crafts incredibly realistic flowers that last - Minneapolis Star TribuneTuesday, April 16, 2019
Gaseitsiwe, who formerly investigated money laundering, developed and honed her floral-crafting technique after taking time off from that career to spend more time with her children and moving to Minnesota. Now she creates custom arrangements for permanent home decor and special events — even wedding bouquets. Paper flowers serve as an everlasting memento of the occasion, she notes. “You can dry real flowers but they don’t look the same. These look real, and you can keep them looking fresh.” Her toughest challenge so far? Creating a lady slipper, Minnesota’s state flower, for her mother for Mother’s Day. “The shape made it hard — it’s such a smooth seamless cup shape,” she says. She charges not by the flower but by the hour — however many it takes to create whatever a client wishes. “You’re buying my time,” she says. That typically ranges from about $150 for a bouquet of simple poppies to $200 for a bouquet of more complex flowers. And if you want to learn how to make your own paper flowers, she also hosts periodic workshops. http://www.startribune.com/st-paul-paper-artist-crafts-incredibly-realistic-flowers-that-last/495207271/
Love fresh-cut blooms? Keep 'em coming with a flower CSA - Minneapolis Star TribuneWednesday, April 03, 2019
CSA stands for community-supported agriculture, a business model in which consumers invest in local farms in exchange for a share of what they grow. Minnesotans have been consuming CSA veggies for years. Now a handful of local growers are offering shares of their blooms and ornamental plants. “People sign up in winter and early spring,” says Molly Gaeckle, owner of Northerly Flora, who grows flowers on two lots in the Longfellow and Seward neighborhoods of Minneapolis. “It helps me buy seeds, compost and irrigation.” In return for their $190-plus tax investment, her customers receive 10 weekly bouquets of the 75 different flowers, foliage and grasses she grows throughout summer and fall. “Some are bright and fun colors, some are more autumnal,” she says. Some growers focus on particular flowers. “We specialize in different vari... http://www.startribune.com/love-fresh-cut-blooms-keep-em-coming-with-a-flower-csa/507837752/
