Beach rose, saltspray rose, seaside rose, dune rose these roses are very common along the northeast coast. It originally was from the far east and legend has it it washed on the shores after a shipwreck. Look around you’ll see them growing by the coastline.
Being home is nice, but I miss Maine already 🌺🌾
When you sit in silence long enough, you learn that silence has a motion. It glides over you without shape or form, exactly like water. Its color is silver. And silence has a sound you hear only after hours of wading inside it. The sound is soft, like flute notes rising up, like the words of glass speaking. Then there comes a point when you must shatter the blindness of its words, the blindness of its light.

I adore beach roses! When I was a little girl I remember My Uncle’s partner making the most amazing beach rose jelly! He would collect the rose petals all summer and make it in the fall! Every time I see. Beach rose I think of him! #memories #beachrose #maine #lovekpt #gooserocksbeach
The rose in all my products come from my summer harvests, I go once a week til the roses are gone🌹they get powdered for face masks and infused into oils. I feel like it's nice to know where the ingredients in products you use comes from, yeah?🌟

Our first Rosa Rugosa harvest of the season! It was slightly more rainy than preferable but the babe wanted to be outside and it was a great way to calm him. Beach Rose is an astringent, anti-inflammatory, gentle bitter, heart tonic, and of course known for its beautiful floral aroma 🌿#beachrose #rosarugosa #wildcraft
