Dried Rose Petals Packaged With Love (Recipes Included)

in #ecotrain3 years ago

Roses are a treasured part of our herbal apothecary and we let them grow wild and free on our homestead.

Not just an ornamental, the rose is an important ingredient used in many of the products that we make including natural remedies, skincare and culinary preparations.

I am making a special trip to town to deliver a package to the post office. I've been busy packaging up an order for whole dried rose petals. We sell products on-line through our Homesteader's Co-op on-line store. I've added some bonuses to the package: two extra cups of dried rose petals and a a special blend of rose mint tea.

Post office fees and size restrictions can cramp my style with how I package items but I still find room to tuck little surprises into parcels whenever I can. Grinding up a fresh batch of tea in the mortar and pestle was a perfect way to start the day and I hope they enjoy it as much as I do.

We put a lot of work into all of our products (plus buckets of LOVE). I feel pretty honoured when someone shops at our store as it helps to validate what I am trying to achieve. The items we sell are a culmination of everything we stand for. We bottle up our passion for nature and in essence, we are sending a little piece of our homestead inside of every parcel - all wrapped up in a pretty package.

Purple Pavement 'Rotesmeer'

Homestead Roses: A selection of beautiful, versatile roses.

We grow Rosa Rugosa hybrids on our homestead: Snow Pavement ('Schneekoppe') & Purple Pavement ('Rotesmeer').

Both are resilient and hardy roses with abundant beautiful fragrant petals and large rose hips. They thrive on our land and we are able to grow them without the use of any chemicals. In fact, as a hard rule, we use no pesticides, herbicides or chemical fertilizers on our homestead.

These rose varieties are repeat bloomers and very disease resistant. In fact the only issue I've really had is a late frost biting the first set of blossoms last year. They make a lovely hedge and produce gorgeous big rose hips in the fall. We've started propagating the suckers and cuttings so that we can deliver more products and we will also be selling plants locally. Exciting!!

That strawberry rose jam photo, ohhhhh! But all your photos get 2nd and 3rd looks. :))

I see you seal the rose petals but don't use vacuum. Is that so the air will protect them? Such a lovely packaging job, a joy to they eye and senses. :))

I don't know what variety our rugosa is. Decades ago it was sold by the Vocational School as "rugosa". It was hit real hard this winter, as many things were. :((

Thank you! :) Yeah, I wanted to take some air out, but not crush/compact them. Honestly, figuring out the best way to package and ship items like this can be so challenging! I hope your roses bounce back, they are so resilient!

Oh, you're making me think about extra little herbal goodies I can add to the orders I ship out every day - LOVELY. Packaging makes SUCH a difference! Roses grow like weeds here and actually originate from this part of the world. My mother couldn't get over rose bushes in the King's Palace here that are over 3 metres (about 10 feet) tall and in bloom 10 months of the year! A delightful post, my dear, and some lovely thoughts about roses and bringing sweetness and fragrance to others.

Thanks @artemislives! I think I need to move to your side of the world! Roses that grow like weeds - that is a dream. I once received a package that impressed me so much that It set a standard in my mind. I think your customers will love and appreciate (and feel appreciated) with those extra small tokens, plus they might love them so much they'll order the full size next time. I know I would! xx
