Pretty Little Rose Snack
The Rose in and of itself is quintessentially femininity. We began working with Rose oil, not only because of it's luring aroma but because it is loaded with extraordinary healing properties for your mind & body. It's aroma can seduce your psyche, immediately boost your mood and arouse your hormones. Some of it's other qualities include:
Acts as an aphrodisiac
May help eliminate bacteria
Acts as astringent
Helps relieve anxiety
Reduces appearance of scars or stressed skin
Contains high amounts of antioxidants
Regulates & balances hormone production
The part sometimes overlooked, is the seed pod or accessory fruit, called the Rose hip. These guys are loaded with minerals and nutrients, including high amounts of antioxidants and Vitamin C.
Benefits of Rose hips:
Contains high amounts of Vitamin C - Immune boost
Contains high amounts of Anti-oxidants including cartenoids, polyphenols and flavonoids
Improves blood circulation
Improves skin health
Contains high amounts of Iron
Helps reduce appearance of damaged skin
Stimulates new skin cell growth
Currently, we use Rose hip oil in our Belly Balm because of it's powerful ability to help reduce the appearance of scars and regenerate new skin cell production. The oil is not only an incredible source of 'all things good' but the pod itself is edible, and if you dry them they turn into a crunchy take on sour patch kids ( ok, maybe that's a stretch BUT they're tangy and a little sweet). When we make our Rose hip oil, I'll often add the residual pods to my smoothie or I'll just snack on the dried fruit itself. You could also add it to your tea regime or purchase the powder form.
