Wild Rose Facial Cream Giveaway

Have you been enjoying Rosemary Gladstar's video series? 

Today all 23 videos are now available!!!!! 

Click here to enroll and find out all the details. 

I really love what Rosemary has to say in this video and John has a sweet surprise at the end. 




Next Giveaway

My last giveaway to support these awesome Rosemary videos is one of my most favorite and most used recipes from Rosemary - her perfect cream recipe. 

This famous recipe is used by many herbalists to create a beautiful facial cream that is deeply nourishing to the skin. 

In this giveaway I'll be giving away two ounces of my wild rose facial cream and two ounces of my wild rose body butter. This is quite the set! 






The wild rose facial cream is made with infused oils of wild rose petals, wild violet flowers and violet leaves and my own garden-grown calendula flowers along with rose hip seed oil, tamanu oil and several butters including shea butter and cacao butter. 

The wild rose body butter is one of my specialities! It's a rich blend of body butters that deeply nourishes the skin. 


Your body butter has THE most beautiful consistency. It's like rubbing on a cloud.
Rebecca Altman

I'd love to win the wild rose cream! Right now my favorite Rosemary recipe is the Gypsy cold care. My son has a cold and we're all drinking it!

heidya said...

I love Rosalee's plant monographs. I like how thorough they are, that they include the energetics of the plants,and the beautiful photos!

I would love to try the cream. I have psoriasis and my 12 yr old is just starting to have some breakouts.
I am new to herbs, but excited to keep learning.

Unknown said...

We love Gypsy Cold Care. My husband actually discovered it and tells everyone who has a cold all about it.

Hi Rosalee, I am currently enrolled in Rosemary's Practical Herbalism correspondence program and what a delight for me to find out thru Herbmentor ( which I also have an annual subscription to the site ) that we can now SEE Rosemary as she shares such a bounty of information and wisdom. I currently receive your newsletters as well. Today I enrolled to Rosemary's Remedies and what an astounding gift it is. Im very excited. Ever since seeing your beautiful creation of the Rose cream on Facebook and your blog I've been excited about the prospect of perhaps making it. That being said, it would be such a delight and honour to try yours first. I think I may have, in this note, participated in at least 5 ways I could be eligible for the Giveaway ! Looking forward to everything Herbal in my journey of learning about the precious Plant Queen & King dom

One of my favorite remedies from Rosemary are her zoom balls, I tailored it to be sugar free and call them energie balls, make for a great protein and plant rich snack.

Geneviève Côté said...

I've been on your newsletter for some time and really enjoy you plant monographie and recipes that you share! Thanks

Ms Tina said...

I was familiar with the onion syrup recipe, but I am eager to try the fire cider! It sounds like it would be great for whatever ails you!

Kathy Lee said...

I've been to Rosemary's beautiful botanical oasis in VT a couple times (years ago). One of my favorite Rosemary recipes is the one for "Long Life Elixer" - it is incredible & keeps my whole family healthy all through Winter cold season.

Nancy B said...

Hi Rosalee! I already get your newsletter (wonderful) and ordered the videos thru Herbmentor. I love Rosemary, working on her Science and Art of Herbalism home study and have all her books. The new one I have a copy of and have it on my Kindle too...I LOVE the pickled Garlic of hers...haven't had to use any of the cold remedies but they are ready:) Would love some of your rose cream, looks lucious!!!

I've seen the info on the video series; I want to enroll!

gwendolyn garcia said...

My favorite recipe was the Onion Honey syrup because of its simplicity. I was sick and made it right away. Yum.

Cathi B. said...

Just watched the video for Rosemary's face cream...looking forward to making it.

gwendolyn garcia said...

I have been signed up for your newsletter for quite some time. I like it because you rarely send out newsletters for personal promotion (although I don't mind when you) and you are always quite generous with useful and well-written herbal information and recipes.

gwendolyn garcia said...

I liked your Methow Valley Herb FB Page awhile ago. I enjoy it because you always post noteworthy tidbits that I would be disappointed not to know about.

gwendolyn garcia said...

I posted your picture to my FB page along with a link back to this blog post!

gwendolyn garcia said...

No twitter account, but I did Pin your wild rose cream picture to my Pin It account! Thanks for this opportunity~ hope I win!!! :D

Dan Thomas said...

The simple recipes are the best...ie. onion honey syrup..I plan on keeping a container of it on my stove all winter

Debra Page said...

I love Rosemarys' recipes and info. Just the little tidbits she really doesn't think about,. they just slip from brain to mouth without thinking about it. Keep up the good work, both of you. There are lots of
people willing to learn.

Debra Page said...

Rosalee. You will never know how much I love and admire you. I repost nearly everything you put on Facebook. Thanks for the oppertunity to share something so wonderful.

Kate Sinon said...

Rosemary's video made it so clear how much you miss just reading the book. Although I'd love to hear her in person, I think the videos are a close second!

Kate Sinon said...

I've been getting Rosalee's newsletter for quite awhile. I look forward to all of her great ideas for using herbs and her excellent information. It was her information on elecampane (with picture) that gave me the big aha that it's been growing in my yard for 12 years!

Kate Sinon said...

I shared the Rosemary Remedies on FB (from your post).

Kate Sinon said...

I love the Methow Valley Herbs Blog... Same reasons as the newsletter. Wonderful information and then there are all these nice bonus giveaways!

I would love to have this. I have memories of my grandmother having something like it when I was a child, and I used to love to use it.

April Knight said...

I watched the video and would love to try "Everyone's Favorite Root Beer". The most amazing thing I saw was the Peppermint Tooth Powder. Making the move from commercialized products to herbal and all natural can be very difficult and she gives great direction!

April Knight said...

I signed up for your newsletter!

April Knight said...

I originally liked your page on Facebook because I was making changes from commercial products to more natural ones. I thought it would be a great place to learn more about the herbs I know of, learn about ones that I don't, and be directed to other sites and places that offer the same thing. The fb page has done all of those things and I am thankful for that.

April Knight said...

And photo shared to my facebook page as well! :)

Karen Marshall said...

I've been a big fan of Rosemarys for years now and finding these videos was like Christmas morning! Much of what I've learned over the years was from Rosemary and her videos are an even better way to enjoy her teachings and wisdom!

DeboraWillow said...

I think I have all of Rosemary's books. One of the herbal internships I did a year of the curriculum was her teachings. One of the first things I learned was the magic of licorce root!

DeboraWillow said...

I have been enjoying watching Rosemary's videos and have urged many to watch them too.

DeboraWillow said...

I have been enjoying your blog for a while now and love the photos combined with the great info given with a light heart.

DeboraWillow said...

I share much of what you post on facebook and encourage my friends to "like" you too. :-)

I have shared this quote and will happily share it again :-)

Valkyrie of Odin said...

Hey... my comment never made it through the other day!

I've done all the things in the requirements. I love that Rosemary is doing a series, too. I love rose products... I think my husband likes me wearing them, too. =)

I think i'm off to work with elderberry and goldenrod today. Maybe make a syrup for cold season.

Carri Lynn Hensley said...

so excited -- been following for years and love each time something new is added. Makes me need to build a little shop to keep up with everything :)

Finamoon said...

I so want to enroll in Rosemary's course!! Loved the videos I already saw. It looks like tons of great information!

Sunny said...

Rosalee, I can't iimagine anything more beautiful than the scent of roses in the middle of winter! I would love to win your luscious Wild Rose cream!

My daughter and I are both diabetic, and moisturizing isn't just a treat, it's imperative! My daughter had MRSA that invaded her foot through a crack in her dry skin. Her foot was fine one night, the following morning it was almost black and she had to be hospitalized. She lost her big toe, and underwent treatment at the hospital every weekday, and care by a home health nurse 3x a week. It took 8 months of work, during which she couldn't go anywhere other than doctors, church, and the beauty parlor. (Seriously.) I'm not telling this for any sympathy or attention, I just want everyone to know how easy problems sneak in, even though we think we're doing everything we're supposed to. Keep those feet moist! (But not between the toes!)

I shared your photo quote, and signed up for your newsletter. I've been following you on fb and learn something new every time I read what you have to say. Now I'm going to go read your goldenrod monograph. We know the bees are crazy about goldenrod, and make a beautiful honey from it. I can't wait to see what it can do for me! (Sunny Nestler). Hugs!

I just made Rosemary's Perfect Cream recipe for the first time and love it. Can't wait to make it again.
