Ellen White Weir owns Goldpetals, a cottage business dedicated to creating Perennially Yours Recommended Productsfloral products that are good for the soul and mind. She grows all of the flowers she uses on her 38-acre farm outside of Cooperstown, NY. After attending an “herb camp” several years ago, Ellen began experimenting with essential oils, balms and creams in her basement and kitchen. Many of her Goldpetals products include both calendula and lavender because of the powerful yet gentle quality of their medicinal properties. She uses no chemical preservatives. Her products, made of the finest natural ingredients, are made in small batches, and have a shelf-life of approximately one year. She will even make up custom botanical oils and potions for specific ailments by request! To learn more about Ellen’s aromatherapy products and business, visit
