Rose Petals

Organically grown and harvested by Curate Essentials in Fayetteville, NC

Botanical Name: Rosa L.

Rose petals are mildly sedative, antiseptic, anti-inflammatory, and anti-parasitic. They’re also mild laxatives, a good supportive tonic for the heart, and great for lowering cholesterol. The antiseptic nature of rose petals makes them a wonderful treatment for wounds, bruises, rashes, and incisions. Taken internally, their anti-inflammatory properties make them a wonderful treatment for sore throats or ulcers. They can stimulate the liver and increase appetite and circulation.

Rose petals can also lower your body temperature and help bring down a fever or cool you off in the summer. As an anti-spasmodic, it helps relieve spasms in the respiratory system (asthma and coughs), in the intestinal tract (cramping, constipation), and in the muscles (cramps and sports injuries). Adding its antiviral qualities, you’ve got an entire winter’s medicine chest in one herb.

Rose petals are an emmenagogue, which means this herb can help regulate and bring on delayed menstrual cycles (as a caution, avoid taking this herb internally if you are pregnant). They’re also a uterine tonic — healing cysts, infections, and bleeding. And, just like the essential oil, rose petals are a nervine; they help soothe and calm the nervous system, easing tension and pain
