What is Rose Water? 

Due to its fresh, uplifting, and sweet aroma, Rose water has long served as the signature scent of choice for women across the world. Rose water (an infusion of water and rose petals) is believed to have originated in Ancient Iran. A skincare wonder, its magical properties go far beyond fragrancing: rose water tones the skin, balances PH levels, and slows down the aging process. Yet, despite its widespread popularity in the cosmetics industry, few are aware of the incredible healing and medicinal properties of Rose water, including its relation to the practice of Ayurveda. 

How is Rose Water related to Ayurveda? 

Significantly, Rose water contains a number of powerful antioxidants. For example, Polyphenols, which stem from the petals of roses. Polyphenols reduce blood sugar levels, protect the body from cell damage, and can reduce the risk of cancer. 

With this in mind, Ayurveda practitioners regularly drink Rose tea in order to calm and cleanse the body. Rose tea helps to balance Sadhaka Pitta (a sub-dosha of Pitta), which processes life’s events and emotions. People with weak Sadhaka Pitta are unable to regulate their emotions, experiencing stress, depression, anxiety, and rage. 

Drinking Rose tea, however, can strengthen Sadhika Pitta. It enables people to process negative emotions more easily, and aids in rest and relaxation (hence strengthening the connection between the mind and the soul). Additionally, Rose tea helps to speed up the digestive system and further reduces the risk of heart disease and diabetes. 

How is Rose Tea Made?

What Else Can Be Made With Rose Tea? 

Rose tea is quick and simple to make. Simply place Rose petals into a pot of water and bring this to boil for 10-15 minutes. Upon completion, the water should turn a pink colour (if it turns brown, it has been overboiled). 

Vegan Rose Jellies are an easy treat to make at home with the following ingredients: thirty grams of dried rose petals; a sweetener of your choice; Psyllium Husk, and one litre of water. First, simmer the rose petals in water for about fifteen minutes until the water has turned a pinkish colour. Then, add the sweetener and stir in the Psyllium. Let the mix melt, then pour the substance into ice cube trays and leave it to cool. Finally, once the mix has set, remove the jellies from the ice cube tray. Cover the cubes in corn starch to avoid the jellies from sticking together.

Although Rose balances all body types, the Kapha body type is aggravated by sugar. So, those with Kapha body types beware! Eat your jellies in moderation. 

 Overall, any food product containing roses is healthy and beneficial. Do not hesitate to add Roses to your diet.
