Our Mission

We offer unprecedented energetic support for
Your recovery from adversity and trauma
And your sacred purpose as a
Way-shower of the light


Dr. Schotte fell in love with a man who lived in Michigan, U.S. in 1997 and moved from Toronto, Canada to join him in 1999. He had a beautiful garden on the land which he had owned for decades. In the spring of 2000, she started making Mother Tincture from the existing flowers in their garden. For several years, she researched, experimented and used the flower essences created from the Mother Tincture she produced in her counseling practice.

The Birth of La Vie de la Rose

In 2006, Dr. Schotte registered La Vie de la Rose. Women from a healing group she facilitated became the founding mothers of the company. These women had experienced the power of her flower essences and joined her in a mission to share them with people around the world. The women worked at their jobs during the day and at La Vie de la Rose evenings and weekends. They gardened, made flower essences, ran the office, etc. It was a labor of love. These women distinguished themselves through a devotion to a higher purpose and a willingness to share their time and resources to serve others. They made La Vie de la Rose and its service to humanity possible.

To this day, La Vie de la Rose sources its strength from its dedicated team.

Early Recognition

In 2010, we won five awards through the Coalition of Visionary Resources (COVR), the trade association for the Mind Body Spirit marketplace; including Best Transformational Sideline and Best New Product of the Year. This buoyed our confidence, and in 2011 we began our first full year of sales. Before long, we were an international company. And we received other awards: Mom’s Choice Awards, Creative Magazine Awards, and more.  We continue to maintain our industry leadership through our commitment to impeccability and innovation.

COVID-19 Pivot

When Dr. Schotte and her team recognized the adversity and trauma created by COVID-19 pandemic and its myriad effects on society, they went to work to refocus the company. Their goal: support people to ride the storm of the crisis, heal from the losses they were experiencing, and rebound and recreate their lives in Soulful ways. They moved their exclusive women’s work to a different platform, recognizing that they were potentially serving two unique groups of people.

Dr. Schotte revised flower essence sets and developed additional ones. She rewrote all the affirmations for the sets with consideration for the current situation. Team members redesigned the packaging to convey greater support through the beauty of the Garden of Love. All the flowers on the packaging are used to produce La Vie de la Rose flower essences. She and her team developed this website to showcase the fresh product line and magnetize the people they knew they could support.
