Overview

Rose has been cultivated since ancient times, resulting in hundreds of varieties. It can be used in cooking, perfumery, and as a medicine. Rose works well both on its own and when combined with other herbs. 

Typical Preparations

Taken internally as a tea, powder, capsules, or extract. Can also be used in cooking.

Medicinal Uses

Rose, as a dried herb, is beautiful in many deserts and beverages. It is gently astringent and toning, and can be used to gently enhance digestions. Rose is gently soothing for the emotions, and can be used as an aphrodisiac. It is often added to other herbal formulas to make them more pleasant.

Active Constituents

Volatile oils, quercetin, tannins.

Other

It was once tradition to suspend a rose of the dining table as a sign that all confidences were to be held sacred. In modern times, that has evolved to a plaster ceiling ornament in the center of the ceiling called ‘the rose’, although it is not always rose shaped.
