This delicate flower has been a staple in the cosmetic and perfume industry, boasting a rich, complex aroma that has been described as slightly sweet with vibrant honey and hints of leather. Often a symbol of love and friendship, the petals have also been a staple in Ayurvedic and herbal medicine prepared to address respiratory, digestive, blood pressure, and menstrual regulation needs.
For natural skin care applications, rose petals are often a beautiful adornment to soaps and botanical baths. When infused into oils and butters, rose petals can offer astringent, moisturizing, and anti-inflammatory properties and are prized in formulas for mature skin.
