5 Healing Benefits of Rose
Updated: Jan 21, 2021
The rose has a long history and is often associated with love. According to Petal Republic, "Roses are native to Asia, North America, Europe, and northwest Africa. The first cultivation of these plants originated some 5,000 years ago during the Roman era. Before their fame as garden plants and cut flowers, roses were highly valued back in the day for their scent, medicinal and therapeutic values, celebrations, and decorations."
So, what is it about this flower that is so beneficial?
Rose soothes the heart and balances the mind;
It reduces stress and calms the nerves;
Neutralizes excessive heat and acidity in the stomach, colon and liver;
Promotes a healthy glowing skin; and,
Supports healthy reproductive strength for both men and women.*
I love combining rose buds with other dried flowers into a tea that is soothing and replenishing. Combine that with a gentle yoga practice, and you have the ultimate date night with yourself!
February's featured tea is a heart-opening rose tea. The unique blend of rose buds, lavender and jasmine will help bring about calm and relaxation. Class will consist of gentle, restorative yoga poses, breath work, and finish with a cup of soothing tea.
