Valentine Gift from Ecuador

Why not express your love to your Valentine this year by not giving chocolates!

See details about Real Estate Tours in Ecuador

Here are two alternatives, rose essential oil and or fresh Ecuador Valentine roses.

Give healthy essential oils as a Valentine’s gift of love.

Our friend, Candace Newman, is offering Valentine Rose Otto Perfume. Aroma is the silent language of the heart and soul so Candace has created two holiday specials. One is her Rose Otto Rejuvenation Perfume.

1/7th oz bottle of Rose Otto Rejuvenation Perfume in amber glass bottle.

This ancient and profound essential oil formula quickly became Candace’s signature perfume that she offers straight as an exquisite perfume, or with Organic Jojoba Oil as a rejuvenation face oil. This perfume is a blend of Sandalwood and Patchouli from India, Frankincense from Somalia, Geranium from Madagascar and Bulgarian Rose Otto essential oils. These oils are known historically for use in ultimate skin care, however the aromas have proven to help with anxiety relief and soothe the soul.

What a pure simple way to express love through the deepest essence of roses!

Red roses at our house.

A reader sent this note: We ordered 100 roses thru Gary and Merri Scott to be delivered to our present address in California for distribution among eight ladies in the family.

The flowers arrived Tuesday, two days before the holiday just as promised. They were tightly packed in four bunches of 25 each. They were divided into 7 dozen + 16 that ended up with my bride of 41 years. Normally with local U.S. roses one cuts the stems at a sharp angle on the bottom and stores them in the refrigerator for a couple days. The roses from Ecuador have stems on them over four feet long. These long stemmed beauties cannot fit into any domestic refrig. that I know of. Place them loosely packed into deep heavy vases full of fresh cold water and the buds open into the largest blooms you have ever seen. Change the water often enough and they will look beautiful for over two weeks. We nursed ours along for three weeks. Jump in, – the water is fine. You will be glad that you did. Will be interested in hearing about your experience.

Take time to smell the roses and be good to yourself.

Premium Quality Roses

Though this is perhaps the lowest price for roses you will see, these roses are special, not like anything offered in a store or even at most florists. These are premium roses with extra large heads that open fully.

Fresher Quality Roses

Most roses go from Ecuador to Miami by air, are stored in Miami, then shipped by truck and then they sit in a store. They can be a week or more old when you receive them. The roses you receive from this offer are cut and stored overnight, driven by refrigerated truck to Quito airport and flown to Miami to a special refrigerated facility until, then flown to your destination for immediate delivery to your home or office. This means they last much longer.

Environmentally Clean Roses

The roses you receive are certified by Veriflora. The VERIFLORA seal is a real, green program that regularly spot check farms for ecologically sound systems that include:

1- Water and ecological conservation: implementing water management systems to prevent depletion of fresh water supplies.

2- Product quality: implementing practices to ensure the quality of the product through the whole chain of delivery to the final consumer.

3- Advanced agricultural practices: integrating organic practices wherever possible. To only use approved green label certified pesticides. To allow no discharge of pesticides run off into the environment.

4- Waste management: recycling and composting as well as the proper disposal of agricultural chemicals.

Certification means the growers have met or exceeded the requirements. There is no middle ground with Veriflora, no differing levels of certification. You either are ecologically sound and certified, or you aren’t.

That means you receive environmentally friendly roses.

Here are some of my roses. Compare that head size to anything you see in a store!

Fair Trade Roses

In addition the Verflora seal requires the rose grower to be socially responsible adhering to recognized labor and community standards, specially pertaining to health and safety, work conditions, hiring practices, discrimination, harassment and fair pay.

The growers offer every single one of their workers:

-free doctor and medical treatment at the farm for workers
-day care facilities for infants
-free breakfast and lunch (and dinner when they work late)
-free sports and recreation facilities
-small business loans -when workers want to leave to set up their own small holding farm

See how to care for fresh Ecuador roses to make them amazingly long lasting.

See the steps that keep some of these roses looking good for 14 days.

After 18 days some still looked like this.

ecuador-roses

Let me add here that not all, in fact not most, fresh Ecuador flowers will last 14 days. Nine days is more the norm.

Many factors matter when it comes to longevity. Weather conditions that affect the temperature in the delivery van will have an impact. How long the flowers are in the van matters. How quickly you get the roses out of the box and into water affects longevity.

The types of roses delivered also relate to longevity. Thick stemmed roses with smaller heads generally last longer than thin stemmed roses with large heads. This however is not always true.

ecuador-roses

Some of roses we have received (after being severely pruned and placed three to a vase) lasted three weeks.

I have learned a few tips beyond those shown in the flower care instruction. They are:

#1: Cut the tips of the rose stems when you receive them and place them in warm water and plant food.

#2: Remove the guard leafs (the outside leaf that will have a strip of green on it). These leaves are high in acid that speeds blooming.

#3: Do not crowd the flowers. Arrange them so the heads do not touch.

#4: Recut the tips just a bit every other day and refresh with warm and plant food.

#5: When the heads start to droop cut the stem severely. The shorter stem seems to bring the flower back.

Use these three tips and those shown in the Care of Flowers report here and be ready to be amazed at how long your fresh Ecuador flowers last.
