Roses have been used for skin care since the Greeks and Romans used their petals to scent their baths.
Rose absolute oil is derived via solvent extraction from rose blooms. It is antiviral, bactericidal, and known to relieve stress and anxiety, menstrual cramps, and menopausal symptoms. It is also an aphrodisiac and can even be used to relieve symptoms of PTSD.
Decisions! Just finished sanding and oiling. What is your favorite? I think I will narrow down to 2 maybe 3 options. (These are bases for airplants. Exotic woods. Just beautiful.) #exotic wood #airplants#handcrafted
I'll be making a detox tea with the Peony (and mint, green tea, honey and ginseng), and need to make a batch of Rose Infused Aloe, a 24 oz batch of Rose Hydrosol Toner, and a big order for the Fresh Red Rose Petal Sugar Scrub with the red roses ☆♥♥❥❥❥✿☆BEAUTIFUL ☆✿❥❥❥♥♥☆
Pink Peony - Paeonia suffruticosa - Mainly ornamental, though the Peony root bark has been used Chinese medicine for more than 2000 years. The peony's root bark main functions include reducing heat, cooling the blood, improving liver function, and mildly invigorating the blood.
Ancient Chinese texts mention the peony was used for flavoring food. Confucius (551–479 BC) is quoted to have said: "I eat nothing without its sauce. I enjoy it very much, because of its flavor." (The bark was boiled in water)
Damask Rose bush - Rosa Damascena
Roses play a key role in many of my skincare items. I will use these roses to make Rose Water Hydrosol Toner, Rose and Chamomile infused grapeseed oil - an ingredient in my Rose the Age Away Serum, Rose Infused Aloe Gel, Rose Sugar Scrub and more. One of THE BEST things you can do for your skin (man OR woman) is use a skincare routine including roses. Rose helps maintain the skin's pH balance, and also controls excess oil. Rose also has anti-inflammatory properties that can help reduce the redness of irritated skin, get rid of acne, dermatitis and eczema. It is a great cleanser and aids in removing oil and dirt accumulated in clogged pores. Rose even helps hydrate, revitalise and moisturise the skin giving it with that refreshed appearance.
