Roses are undoubtedly one of the most beloved flowers in the world. Their beauty and sweet aroma have been admired by people for centuries, making them a popular choice for bouquets, decorations, and even as a symbol of love. But did you know that roses also come with a variety of health benefits?
Roses are packed with antioxidants, which can help protect your body from free radical damage and reduce inflammation. They also contain Vitamin C, which can help boost your immune system and reduce the risk of colds and flu. Additionally, roses have anti-aging properties, which can help keep your skin looking young and healthy.
In terms of mental health, roses can be used to help reduce stress and anxiety. The sweet aroma of roses is known to be calming and can help relax your mind and body. Additionally, roses can be used to help boost your mood and can even help improve your concentration.
Roses can also be used to make a variety of health-boosting teas. Rose tea is known to help aid digestion, reduce bloating, and even help with weight loss. Additionally, rose tea can help reduce menstrual cramps and can even help reduce the symptoms of menopause.
Finally, roses can be used to help treat skin conditions such as acne, eczema, and psoriasis. Rose water is known to be an effective natural remedy for these skin issues, as it can help reduce inflammation and soothe the skin.
Energetically we use rose to open the heart and bring in more self love and compassion. One of my favorite ways to do this is with rose bud tea or rose powder. I sprinkle a bit in my morning latte or mix a teaspoon with honey and take straight as a nice bit of sweetness to my day.
Placing roses around your home also invokes love, compassion and opens our energetic pathways to invite more abundance and love into our spaces.
