Beauty Benefits of Rose

Rose, which most often symbolizes love and romance, is now being found in abundance in natural beauty care products as well as in teas and tinctures. Ideal for dry, aging or mature skin types, rose is deeply nourishing and calming to the epidermis. From a more holistic perspective, rose essential oil acts as an emotional balancer and can remove blocks or limitations as well as increase self-confidence.

Natural rosewater has astringent properties making it great for balancing the skin while rosehip is anti-inflammatory and acts as a rejuvenating agent. Ingesting rose can counteract damaging free radicals as its properties are high in antioxidants. Two of my most beloved rose products as of late are Tulsi Sweet Rose tea which is like drinking a cup of flowers and Andalou Naturals 1000 Roses Serum which is hydrating and smells like a potpourri of rosy goodness. But there are other rose products on the market that are budding with beauty benefits...see below:

Burt's Bees Rosewater Toner

The Organic Pharmacy Double Rose Rejuvenating Face Cream

Origins Retexturizing Mask with Rose Clay

Weleda Wild Rose Body Oil 

Peter Thomas Roth Roses Anti-Aging Kit

Roses also have many internal uses and benefits. For heart health, heartburn and emotional rebalancing try Urban Moonshine's Organic Rose Bud and Flower Tincture which can be diluted and applied topically as a toner or ingested following meals. Add rose water to smoothies like Kourtney Kardashian for a sweet and uplifting boost. Or try a jam made with real rose petals for a delicious snack.
