Sunstone Spa Shows the Healing Power of the Rose - Palm Springs Life
Syria and is best known for its intense perfume. According to some legends, returning Crusaders brought the flower to Morocco from Damascus in the 13th century. It now grows wild in one valley in Morocco, yielding between 3,000 and 4,000 tons of blossoms each spring. The rose maroc extract, or essential oil, from these blooms possesses intense hydrating properties, with a sublime fragrance that helps calm and balance the mind and body. (You can experience its calming effects for yourself with Sunstone Spa’s Mommy-to-Be Massage, which incorporates a unique blend of rose maroc with ylang-ylang and other essential oils.)
The blossoms are picked by hand at sunrise, when the oil yield is highest and the dew still settled on the flower. When the sunlight begins to intensify, the flowers are immediately transported to the distillery. It takes tens of thousands of petals to create one drop of rose extract; as a result, it remains one of the most expensive and sought-after ingredients in the beauty industry.
A Powerhouse for All Skin Types
Chemists have identified more than 440 different compounds in rose extract, making it extremely complex as well as popular for all skin types. It gently helps regulate and balance hormone production throughout the body, promotes circulation, and reduces blood pressure, adding a natural glow that cosmetics cannot mimic.

Rose extract also contains high levels of antioxidants, which neutralize free radicals and prevent premature aging. It’s a superb moisturizer, protecting the skin from dehydration and environmental toxins.
Rose water with organic rose oil extract is a gentle antiseptic and astringent that refreshes skin after cleansing, restores a balanced pH level, and prevents blemishes. Anti-inflammatory properties enable rose oil extract to minimize redness, soothe irritation, and subtly reduce red spots and discoloration.

Noted health authority Deepak Chopra, MD, writes that “the sugars and natural oils found in rose petals trap moisture in your skin, making your skin look smoother and softer — just like the beautiful rose petals themselves.”
As powerful as it is in beauty, rose extract is also known for balancing emotions and creating a sense of tranquility and calm. It has been extensively studied and proven to reduce cortisol levels, anxiety, and postoperative pain. The lovely scent creates feelings of comfort and relaxation and has a significant anti-depressant effect.
In one of the most innovative spa treatments today, aestheticians combine organic rose extract with various formulations of the soft pink crystal rose quartz. Rose quartz is known for its use in attracting romance, easing heartbreak, and promoting self-love. In many ways, the crystal complements and reinforces the effects of rose extract, making the two the perfect combination for beautiful skin and self-confidence.

Feature: Florists aim to boost business during flowers fair in Damascus - Xinhua | English.news.cn - Xinhua
by Hummam Sheikh Ali
DAMASCUS, June 29 (Xinhua) -- A number of florists have opted to take part in the ongoing Flowers Fair in Damascus to boost their stranded businesses during the war.
At the sprawling Tishreen Park in Damascus, several florists took part in the fair, showcasing flowers as well as aromatic and medical plants and herbs for the visitors.
Iraqi and Lebanese florists also took part in the fair which opens its doors for foreigners and Arabs.
It's the second year that the fair takes place during the crisis, which, like many other activities, came to a halt as a result of the deteriorating situation after the beginning of the 2011 crisis.
However, after the departure of the rebels from eastern Damascus and the military operation to secure the vicinity of the capital, the fair, and other exhibitions and activities returned to Damascus.
At one corner in the Tishreen Park, Bashar Qatil coordinated a number of plants with names on them.
"Our participation is special and our prices are symbolic. We ... Mar 2, 2017

The Swarmin’ Hornets held Poolesville to 11 first-half points in a 46-32 victory on Tuesday, and cruised to a 71-23 win against Seneca Valley on Friday. Damascus is on an eight-game win streak and is undefeated against Montgomery County competition.
Panthers’ Flowers takes center stage
Potomac School’s Devon Flowers is still growing accustomed to life as a starting varsity big man after playing sporadic minutes last season at Gonzaga. It turns out, it’s not so easy.
“It gets to your body,” said Flowers, a 6-foot-9 junior. “It’s the aches and pains you have to go through.”
But Flowers has been fighting through the challenges in a big way, averaging a team-high 14 points and giving his new school a presence in the paint. The Panthers (10-5) notched wins over St. Andrew’s on Friday and St. James on Saturday, and have their sights set on a Mid-Atlantic Athletic Conference title run after last season’s 12-15 campaign.
“It’s a brand new beginning,” Flowers said. “It was kinda a weird adjustment, but I just had to keep working at it.”
Flowers fouled out against St. James after helping build a lead in the fourth quarter, but his teammates picked up the slack and helped Coach Levi Franklin earn his 400th victory. Zach Harris, a 6-foot-1 senior, battled inside and pulled down seven rebounds. Mike Grimes, a transfer from St. John’s, scored a game-high 22 points and sophomore Preston Bacon added 11.
“I feel like right now we’re starting to prove that [we’re a good team],” Harris said. “I’m confident that we’re just gonna keep it going and keep it rolling.”

No bed of roses
THE city has adorned herself with flowers of sweet scented herbs,” waxed the great Arab traveller, Ibn Jubayr, when he visited 12th-century Damascus. “It is encircled by gardens as the moon by its halo.” Later European travellers were no less entranced by the dazzling turquoise square—Naqsh e-Jahan, “the image of the world”—that Abbas I built in Isfahan in the 17th century, leaving behind accounts of its splendours as well as of a host of other such leafy delights as drinking excursions on the banks of the Barrada River that flows through Syria’s capital. The Prophet Muhammad is even said to have shied from entering Damascus, otherwise called al-Fayha, “the fragrant”, for fear of entering Paradise twice.
He would have no need for hesitation today. Amid the bloodshed, car fumes and noise, residents are hard-placed to find anything fragrant in the sprawling cities of the Arab world. The number of places where people can mingle, picnic on cool watermelon by the rivers and fly kites has shrunk while their populations have soared. Per person, the amount of land devoted to parks, squares and other public spaces in Riyadh, for instance, has fa... (The Economist)
