7 Beautiful Benefits of Rose

If you think of roses as just an ornamental flower, or one that is given as a gift, you are in for an amazing surprise. Roses are true power flowers—and they have some of the most impressive benefits of any plant on Earth. Yes, you read that right. From healing wounds to improving symptoms of Dementia, this amazing flower can do wonders for your health. Thankfully, there are many ways to consume it, from rose tea (try Moroccan Rose Mint!) to rosewater to the precious and costly rose essential oil. Let’s take a look at the benefits of rose—and why you should include it as part of your healthy lifestyle!

1. Rose speeds up wound healing.

Rose works from many angles to help heal cuts, burns, and scars. It helps to kill off bad bacteria that can interfere with the healing process and cause infection, and it helps to reduce irritation. Rose also helps to speed up the growth of new healthy skin tissue. For this reason, it is always good to have rosewater or dried rose petals on hand to make a poultice for minor wounds.

2. Rose is one of the best herbs for beauty.

Around the world, rose has been used for millennia to beautify the skin. Rosewater is a fantastic toner that helps to restore the pH of the skin and boost the cellular function of skin cells. Rose essential oil is often used in high-end formulations for its ability to brighten the skin, lighten hyperpigmentation, and even out skin tone. Rose helps to reduce inflammation, which is at the core of skin aging and most common skin diseases. 


 

3. Rose keeps the brain healthy.

 

Early research suggests that, alongside medical treatment, rose products may improve memory and cognition in individuals with Dementia. In fact, compounds in roses have been shown to inhibit the growth of amyloid plaque, the main cause of Dementia. Using rosewater and rose tea on a regular basis may be an effective and safe way to protect your brain long-term.

 

4. Rose helps improve mood.

 

Many studies have shown that rose aromatherapy is useful in the treatment of depression and anxiety. Rose helps to improve mood by relaxing the nervous system and helping the body to balance its production of neurotransmitters. Taken internally, rose can also benefit digestion, which has a profound effect on mood and mental health.

 

5. Rose helps to balance hormones.

 

Got PMS? Hot flashes? Menopausal miseries? Get some roses! Hormones in both women and men benefit from rose aromatherapy and ingestion of rose products. Rose helps to bring hormones back into balance and reduces the symptoms of hormonal deficit, particularly in women with reproductive disorders or who are going through menopause.

 

 

6. Rose helps to relieve headaches.

 

If you are looking for a natural way to get rid of that nasty headache, look no further. Studies have shown that topical application of rose oil or rose aromatherapy can do wonders for headaches—including for people who suffer from chronic migraines. If you’re still not convinced, rose has been used for thousands of years in Persian medicine to help relieve headaches.

 

7. Rose is strongly anti-aging.

 

With its powerful combination of unique antioxidants, phytochemicals, vitamin C, anti-microbial compounds, and anti-inflammatory properties, rose works in multiple ways to fight different sources of aging. These benefits extend to ingestion, aromatherapy, and topical application. We weren’t kidding when they said rose is a beauty power flower! Include rose in your life and you will stay youthful and vibrant.
