A Bouquet Of Beauty – Roses For Skin-care
Roses are the most popular flower in the world and roses can be found in thousands of hybrids – with the classic long-stem red roses being an all-time favourite. While you may enjoy the sheer beauty of roses, you can also turn to roses to enjoy many health and beauty benefits.
Roses Are Edible
All species of roses are edible, but the darker the hue, the more appealing the flavour. The flavour is mild and sweet, and reminiscent of strawberries or green apples. Consider adding rose petals, either chopped or whole, to your salads or desserts or use as a colourful garnish for any dish. You can also flavour your water with rose petals, or simmer 10 to 15 petals per cup of tea to create a unique beverage. Drink daily to boost your metabolism, detox your body and improve digestion.
Roses Are A Natural Astringent
Rose petals are packed full of vitamins and nutrients that help to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. Roses are a natural astringent that, when applied topically, will help to balance your skin. Roses hydrate your skin while drying out acne. Rose beauty products also help to naturally heal skin abrasions, eczema and broken capillaries that lead to rosacea.
Each species of roses has a unique fragrance and classic red roses have a distinct and intoxicating aroma. This can help you to calm and relax, or even to get you in the mood for an evening of romance.
