Why is rose a cherished plant ally? Natural beauty expert Sara Crow shares the science and secrets of this time-honored flower. From nourishing the yin for a gorgeous complexion to supporting the emotional heart for an inner beauty and radiance, rose is one of the most effective and versatile plant medicines.
“Rose is good for so many things. It's calming to inflammation, hydrating, cooling and nourishing to support the body's Yin—to keep us fluid and supple. It's both purifying and nutritive to support digestive function, intestinal health, reproductive vitality and skin radiance.
Throughout time people have relied on Rose to nourish the Shen or Spirit. Shen is a Traditional Chinese Medicine term that refers to our psychological health and wellbeing. Rose simultaneously relaxes and uplifts, making it an important ally to address both hyperactive mental states and the emotional heaviness of sadness, grief, heartbreak, insomnia, panic attacks, apathy and emotional trauma. It anchors a restless heart, comforting and soothing to promote emotional equilibrium. It's great to promote more ease and love in our lives. It connects and build bridges between heart and mind, ourselves and others, inner and outer. It offers us the opportunity to remove the thorns of past hurts. In can open us to experience more sweetness in our lives.
I'm someone who believes wholeheartedly that the world needs more rose therapy. Flower essences live inside many of Floracopeia’s skincare products to nurture the heart and spirit, to boost self-love, and to nourish inner beauty.”
