In Greek mythology, the rose was said to have been produced in a passionate mixture of Aphrodite’s tears and the blood of her lover, Adonis. Even now, these delicate petals hold a power of myth and love, if just to the extent of a whiff. Behind our bathroom cabinets, we find it in all forms — oils, waters, creams — the benefits of such a simplistic, common luxury are found to be endless. It’s no doubt we are currently seeing a rose beauty trend, read on for a few reasons you should keep a heavy stock of rose:
It Relieves Anxieties & Leads To Lovin’:
Fill small spaces with the scent of burning rose oil to banish the stress of the outside world and calm nerves. This unassuming light aroma also acts as a natural aphrodisiac.
It’s Your Skins Best Love Affair:
Rose is blooming with natural skin remedies that will leave your facade clear and supple. Its antibacterial properties fight against acne, while it is a natural anti-inflammatory, soothing red bumps, and blemishes. Rose also acts as a toner — a much better choice than the one you can find at the beauty counter which is sure to contain alcohol. Finally, it is a wonderful moisturizer. Basically, layer it on — you won’t regret it.
It’s Got Vitamins:
The amount of Vitamin C in this flora is enough to act as natures SPF (though we still suggest you lather your daily dose as well).
It Feeds Your Tresses:
When used on your scalp, rose can be the perfect moisturizer to balance dandruff and nourish dry ends.
