The Rose Journey
The Rosedrops journey began after losing a friend and also my very special Sufi Teacher who I had spent 26 years with and the loss was overwhelming. Very soon after I realised my years as a therapist and wellbeing coach were needed to help myself find a balance from bereavement. Life had simply lost it’s fragrance within and as an Aromatherapist I knew it had.
Work life, training, coaching and life at home continued with an essence and light that had dimmed and after a few months I visited a Palace in Istanbul with family. There on a hot August day we were offered a cool refreshing drink enhanced with the essence of rose, a traditional custom of the Ottoman times. The taste was delicious but it was my heart that smiled which had the profound impact upon me.
I returned to London and began sourcing the best organic rosewater I could find to drink just as it had been for many hundreds of years for it's balancing and healing benefits.
and the rose reminded me…
“All you love lies in all that is beautiful, your heart included”
The following year I decided to share this beautiful discovery and travelled to Turkey’s rose valley where my search found a unique and wonderful rosewater, Organic, Pure and a single distillation, the essence of the rose was retained. Rosedrops began and my journey was connecting me with all those who shared my passion for Organic farming, natural beauty and well being and the stories and comments from all those who share the love of nature and all it's benefits continue to inspire and create the dream. Roses from the heart.
