Not only does it smell divine, it has surprising benefits far beyond beautiful skin. Roses have health benefits that can play a very integral role in your health process, which is why we have added it into our products.
For thousands of years, Ayurvedic healers have been using the rose plant in herbal remedies, teas, oils and skincare formulations. It can be used as dried, preserved, juiced, distilled, or a as powder or tincture.
According to Ayurveda, rose primarily balances sadhaka pitta, the subdosha of pitta that governs the emotions and how it impacts the heart, the mind, breath, respiratory channels, lung and throat. Rose soothes the heart and emotions and can assist in healing from past griefs so that one can move on and enjoy the present moment. It also has a beautiful cooling effect on the blood which can help prevent skin issues such as acne and rashes.
There are many ailments for which rose is recommended in the Ayurvedic tradition and there is now increasing science that backs up these claims.
