In this month, dedicated to our intimate loves, lovers, and friends, our herb is Rose. Roses are red....or yellow, pink, white, or black. The layered silky smooth petals radiate a scent that is known for opening our hearts and bringing intimacy into our senses.
Rose petals, or Rosa canina, are packed with volatile oils, which are what make these flowers so smelly. The aromatic smells are met with a slight astringency and perfumy taste. Medicinally, rose has a cooling affect of the body which can be used to heal headaches and diarrhea. Roses can be used to add warm energetics to soften emotions and are often associated to the heart and healing from emotional heartbreak.
This month we have Aphrodite's Sensual Desire Kit coming out. This kit includes our new massage candle and other goodies to turn up the heat and turn on the love!
Some of our favorite blends incorporating Rose are:
