Roses have been synonymous with romance and affection since classical times. But did you know that there’s a lot more to these beautiful, sweet-smelling flowers than just being Valentine’s Day staples?
For centuries, roses have been used to treat a wide variety of ailments. In Europe and Asia, roses are considered to be very useful in easing cough, reducing inflammation in different areas of the body, and even relieving the emotional stress of grief.
Today, aside from being recognized as a universal symbol for love, roses are also known to be incredibly useful for chest pains, dysmenorrhea, and digestive problems, among many others. Herbalists from different parts of the world continue to use rose petals and rose buds as ingredients for tea and herbal remedies because of their remarkable healing capabilities.
Roses, particularly rose buds, are packed with Vitamin C and anti-oxidants that are proven to help boost the immune system and slow down the process of skin ageing. They are also known for their ability to calm the nervous system; making them highly useful in relieving stress, anxiety, insomnia, and other neurological issues. A 2009 study1 confirms that breathing in the aroma of rose oil helps ease the body into a relaxed state. It also discussed the effectiveness of rose oil in controlling blood pressure. Another study from 20092 concluded that the detoxifying polyphenols found in rose buds help prevent cell destruction, cardiovascular conditions, and potentially, even cancer.
