🌹 The Edible Rose

The leaves, buds, hips and petals of roses are entirely edible. However, for the purpose of ingesting, it is best to ensure you use roses that have not been treated or sprayed with toxic fertilizers, insecticides and the like. You can grow your own organic roses to ensure they are healthy and safe, or you can purchase edible roses. When purchasing, I recommend looking for organic ‘culinary grade’, ‘food grade’ or ‘edible’ rose petals and rose buds. Quality is key when enjoying edible flowers!

📋 Rose Benefits

Roses are one of the oldest and most well-known medicinal plants! Roses are packed with anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial benefits, perfect for soothing irritable skin conditions. They are also considered great allies for heartbreak, anxiety and depression, lifting the spirits and promoting calm and relaxation when in need. I love to keep rosewater handy in the warmer months to spritz on my face throughout the day. Not only is it delightfully cooling, inhaling the scent of rose is an instant joy.
