Rose Petals

Rugosa Roses have highly scented petals. They bloom daily from June until September and can be used to make rose water, a luxurious and expensive facial treatment for tightening skin. Fragrant baths and hair rinses can also be made by infusing Rose petals.

Roses, according to teachings from ancient India, will balance the heart, both physically and emotionally.  They are a common remedy for irritability and stress, known for an ability to cool and calm.
