Did you know Roses hold many health benefits???

Roses are vitamin enriched. It contains Vitamin A, B, C, D, and E. They also contain antioxidants
so they're great for making rose water and using as an antibacterial for many skin issues like sunburns, eczema, and Psoriasis. I always turn to my rose water mist when i wake with blotchy redness on my face and it immediately soothes! 

You can add rose petals to your steamy hot bath water as a decongestant to help open up your nasal passages and sinuses. Plus it smells great too!

Rose petals are also a great anti-inflammatory! Pick some dark red petals and place in a Tupperware and pour in hot water; cover with lid and let it sit. Place a couple of petals on your puffy under eyes for about 15-20min to cool and soothe that area.

To make your own rose water; simply boil the rose petals on a stove top pour into a spray bottle and keep it chilled. You can now use it as a skin toner as well and keep that skin hydrated! 

I hope this has helped enlighten your creativity on natural at home skin care. And if you chose to buy rose water mists just make sure its natural and doesn't have all those added chemicals that can defeat the purpose!

Stay Beautiful and until next time:)
