Combat Winter Blues With The Healing Powers Of Rose

Now I’m not one for a pagan ritual but this time of year really gets me thinking about all the things I could manifest! ?? ?

With this in mind, I also started wondering what the lack of daylight would do to my skin, how I could combat the reduction in vitamin D and how to keep myself looking fresh and dewy in the winter months?

It is well known that autumn starts to affect the mood of millions, and S.A.D (Season Affective Disorder) has many of us stuck in bed night after night, in a self-imposed hibernation phase! To lift my mood and my skin, I started thinking about plants and natural minerals and decided to try ?roses in all their glory.

It has long been thought that the extracts from roses does wonders for the skin and the healing power of rose quartz has also been touted as one of Earths natural wonders. Let’s not forget the benefits of a bunch of roses on a person’s heart! ❤️

When looking further into it, I found that the rose, far from being just visually beautiful had abundant benefits on the mind, body and soul!
Some of the benefits of rose water are listed below;

  • Contains anti ageing properties.
  • Soothes skin irritation.
  • Soothes sore throats.
  • Reduces skin redness.
  • Helps prevent and treats infections.
  • Contains antioxidants.
  • Heals cuts, scars, and burns.
  • Enhances mood.
  • Relieves headaches.

On a more spiritual level some of the believed benefits of rose quartz are listed below;

  • Encouraging unconditional love.
  • Purifies and opens the heart at all levels to promote love,
  • Encourages self-love,
  • Enhances friendships,
  • Promotes deep inner healing and feelings of peace.

To test the benefits, I bought Rose Oil Radiance Boost with vitamin E from SPA Cosmetics, infused with Swiss alpine rose extracts to hydrate my skin. It smells amazing and my skin looked plumped and conditioned with a more luminous glow. Fresh and visibly awakened. I also tried Pro-Lift Rose Quartz Serum by Skin Chemists London. This clever little serum promises to lift, tighten and fill fine lines and wrinkles with instant results! The first application was fascinating, my skin felt instantly tight and my fine lines were ironed out and smooth…Voilà!

If you want to harness the power of ?roses and feel your spirits lifted, why not try some rose infused products and see the benefits for yourself.
