In Greek mythology, rose was the symbol of Aphrodite, the goddess of love and beauty. Cleopatra used to take her bath in rose petals and milk. During the middle ages, the rose was cultivated in monastery gardens for medicinal purposes.
The rose has a long history of use in herbal medicine, especially in the area of skin care. The rose is very soothing to all skin types, especially valuable for dry, sensitive and aging skins. Regarded as rejuvenating and tonic, rose petals are used by both men and women to tone and smooth the skin. Rose petals have an astringent effect and are also used to diminish redness and provide a calming effect for acne and eczema. Rose tea is used in traditional medicine to regulate conditions influenced by female hormones, including menopause and menstrual problems. It effectively cleanses toxins and heat from the body. With its exquisite fragrance, rose tea is believed to lift spirits and be aphrodisiac.
