Roses symbolize Passion, Love, and Beauty...
In design, whatever they touch becomes romantic...
The greatest gift in any shape and form...
and always adored!
Roses inspire tenderness and love
in all history!
Their captivating fragrance is made out of carefully selected and dried petals
You can make Rose Syrup by boiling 250 gr. of fresh picked rose petals in 3 liter water and after you let them stay for 24 hours, you add 2lb sugar and the juice of one lemon.
To make a natural face cleansing lotion out of Rose petals, we place a glass mixing bowl in a pot full of boiled water and we mix well 2 cups of milk and 1 cup of rose petals until soft.
Then we put them in the blender for a few minutes until they become like the thickness of a smoothie. Then keep them in the fridge in clear bottles.
We can also make instant Rose water by leaving a hand full of rose petal in warm water for 15 min. When it's cool, we can use it for cleaning and refreshing the eyes and the face.
I like using rose water in baking instead of vanilla.
Plus we can make a beautiful potpourri basket to leaven the senses in storage spaces, cupboards and every room. Garden guides are showing us how.
