Rose Bud Tea Benefits
Rose flowers, especially buds, contain a high concentration of vitamin C which by far surpasses the levels in fresh fruits like orange, tomato, and grapefruit. This makes it a great herbal tea to maintain a healthy and radiant skin, and to fight off colds and flu in a more natural way.
Health benefits of loose rose bud tea also include its ability to clear toxic waste from the bladder and kidneys and therefore reduces the risk of urinary tract infections. Drinking rose tea can also prevent blockages that can be caused by kidney stones.
In addition, our pink rose tea contains rich nutrients and organic acids with help to prevent digestive problems and eliminate the toxic waste and substances that can build up in the intestines. Drinking dried rosebud tea helps reduce the risk of dysentery, diarrhea, gastroenteritis and constipation.
Finally, drinking rose flower herbal tea is a great way to relax after a busy day at office, as it can calm the central nervous system, reducing the chance of depression and anxiety. Dried rose tea can also benefit victims of chronic fatigue, insomnia and nervousness when drinking one or two cups per day.
How to make Rose Bud Tea? It’s recommended to steep our pink rosebud tea with a covered glass teapot. Use about 2 teaspoons for every 500 ml of water. Steep with hot water at 95°c for 4-5 minutes for the first and second brewing. Increase temperature and time for further brews. Glass tea mugs or teapots are great as you can look through the glass and appreciate the wonderful appearance of the pink roses.
How to make Rosewater ?
1/4 cup Dried Red Rose Buds and Petals & 1 1/2 cup Hot (not boiling) Distilled Water
Method: Place Red Rose Buds and Petals into a heat safe jar that has a lid. Heat the water until bubbles start to form, but before it begins to boil. Pour the hot water over the Red Rose Buds and Petals (ensure that they are covered – don’t worry if they float to the top). Place the lid on the mixture, and let steep for around 30 minutes. Strain out the Roses using a cheese cloth or a very fine strainer. Store the water in the fridge. Placing the Rosewater into a dark or light coloured spray bottle is a lovely way to give as a gift! Note: This mixture is most potent when first created, but can last for months when left in the fridge.
Epsom Salt Bath
Benefits of Epsom Salt The health benefits of using Epsom Salt have been celebrated for centuries. Despite its name, Epsom Salt is not actually a salt! It is a chemical compound made up of magnesium, sulfur and oxygen. This makes them an effective, natural way to remove harmful toxins from the body. Epsom Salt is used to promote healthy skin, muscle joints and nervous tissue. The magnesium present in Epsom Salts helps to improve muscle and nerve function. It is also beneficial for blood flow and oxygenation throughout the body. The sulfates are key in improving the absorption of nutrients in our bodies. And they play a role in flushing out toxins, which eases things like migraine headaches. Give your partner the gift of relaxation this Valentine’s Day!
Recipe: 1-2 cups Epsom Salt Optional: Dried Rose Buds and Petals, Dried Lavender, Essential Oil
Method: Add Epsom Salt to air tight container. Mix dried flowers or 1-2 drops of your favourite essential oil with the Epsom Salt (optional). A small glass jar is the perfect way to show off the beauty of your finished product! Idea: Layer the salt and dried flowers (instead of mixing) in the air tight container for a striking effect. This will look beautiful but will result in bits of flowers floating around in your bath. This is not for everyone and can cause trouble for some drains.
