The other night, I took the best bath of my life. I had taken a ridiculous amount of rose petals, left for dead, and decided I would make use of them. I ran the bath, lit some candles, and dumped a massive bag of petals into the water. They looked so perfect floating there on the surface, begging for me to slide myself in. As I did, it felt as though I was being cradled by the softest pieces of velvet, floating about and petting my skin. I stayed there for more than an hour, my senses having the time of their lives between the physical sensation and the amazing aroma infusing the water I was submerged in.
The next day, I took even more petals and kept them over my stove as I made my first batch of Rose Water. My entire apartment smelled like a garden! I've since bottled it up and infused some bottles with different essential oils. I thought it a great opportunity to share some of the healing benefits of rose petals and rose water as I'll be bringing some of my homemade batch to our gathering on Sunday.

First off, Rose is your skins new best friend. The kind of friend you meet and immediately have a friend crush on and know you already want them to be in your wedding. Rose oil and rose water are perfect for sensitive skin that can often be irritated in the form of acne or eczema. It smoothes and moisturizes rough skin and can even nourish your scalp from sun damage or harsh product chemicals. Speaking of sun damage, did you know you can also create a homemade sunscreen from roses? Rose water also works as a toner and placing rose petals over your eyes can help get rid of those dark circles. When it comes to your skin, rose is a steady player on your first line of defense. Additionally, the scent is used in aroma therapy to ease anxiety, promote better sleep, detox your body and elevate your mood.
