Bouquet of Roses

The Healing Power of Roses

The delicate petals of rose have been known for centuries in India to heal and improve the skin's appearance. But did you know it even protects the skin from UV damage? The long list of benefits may surprise you...

A garden of roses truly embodies all things magnificent. The petals beautifully unfold as they grow, blooming into the majestic flower that holds its own. Though it is delicate and fragile, there is a sense of power that comes with this beautiful fragrant flower, both symbolically and literally.

Ancient healers in India who practiced Ayurveda (traditional Indian system of medicine, based on the idea of balance in bodily systems) recognized that this flower was more valuable than just being given as a gesture of love or used to adorn a home. It had healing powers. Crushing it and grinding it, they would use the delicate petals of the Rose containing many powerful properties to aid in various body and skin conditions.

In traditional Ayurvedic skincare practices, rose is amongst the most commonly used essential oil. It is used in cleansers, soaps, toners, moisturizers and serums. The long list of benefits below prove just how powerful this elegant flower really is.

Rose has been proven to:

  • Balance moisture levels in the skin, so the skin stays hydrated.
  • Tone the skin due to its many astringent properties reducing excess oiliness and tightening large pores.
  • Protect skin from UV damage due to the high amount of antioxidants.
  • Help to clear acne. Anti-inflammatory and astringent like properties help to get rid of bacteria, clean out pores and remove dead skin cells.
  • Reduce redness and irritation associated with acne, rosacea, eczema, and more.
  • Be a powerful anti-ager. It is full of antioxidants that help fight off free radicals. Preventing them from stealing oxygen from healthy cells causing lifeless, dull looking skin.
  • Improve barrier protection to help skin retain moisture and a vibrant glow.
  • Reduce the appearance of blemishes, dark spots, & acne scars. Helps to improve skin tone and brighten complexion.
