Hey there Nurture My Body Family :)
I am finally done digging out from my vacation and I found some time to write a post :)
Today I woke up with roses on my mind. Not the kind of roses that c
ome in a bouquet on February 14th, but the rose oils and extracts found in our products.
If you haven’t checked out our ingredients glossary, do it now! We list every single ingredient that is used to make our products, and give a description of where it comes from and why we use it (pretty cool, huh?).
The use of the rose is far and varied. It has a long history in its use in folk remedies, especially in the area of skincare. It is suitable for all skin types, but it is especially valuable for dry, sensitive or aging skin.
What we use:
Not only are roses great in skin care products, did you know you can eat them too???
When ingested, roses also offer a soothing property to the nerves and emotional/psychological state of mind. It is often regarded as a mild sedative and anti-depressant. It is increasingly used in treatments for conditions of stress: nervous tension, peptic ulcers, heart disease, among others. There is indication that rose essence may also positively influence digestion, bile secretion, womb disorders and circulation. In addition, a tea made with rose petals (pour 150 ml of boiling water over 1 /2 grams of rose petals) often soothes a mild sore throat.
Now do you see why I woke up with roses on my mind?
Until next time,
