Roses are a medicinal flower that have been used since ancient times for their nutritional and healing benefits. Rose petals are rich in vitamins C, A, D, E & B-complex and minerals such as zinc, iron, and selenium. Rose petals contain sedative, antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, anti-depressant, and mood enhancing properties. They are known to soothe sore throats, nervous tension, anxiety, headaches, peptic ulcers, hypertension, fluid retention, bronchitis, urinary tract infections, and heart disease.
Rose petals are also often used for painful menstruation (dysmenorrhea) and for digestion issues such as flatulence, constipation, and diarrhea. Fresh organic rose petals are a wonderful addition to fruit salads, green salads, deserts, and a variety of healthy meals. Rose petal tea is also a soothing and relaxing way to enjoy its benefits. Simply use 1 teaspoon of dried rose petals to 1 cup of hot water and allow to steep for at least 10 minutes, sweeten with raw honey if desired.
Rose water can also be made by placing 2-4 cups of rose petals in a pot and pouring just enough water to cover them, Simmer for about 45 minutes and then allow to cool. Strain and store rose water in the fridge, it will be good for 7-10 days. Rose water works as an astringent and as an anti-aging & beautifying tonic for the face and skin.
Rose petals are also an excellent addition to your bath and can help provide relief for dry, itchy skin, bug bites, sunburn, acne, and eczema. Make sure to always seek out organic or unsprayed roses since conventionally grown rose petals often contain harmful pesticides.
