The Wonder Properties of Rose

Rose is a unique flower that holds incredible properties which can work wonders on the skin. Rose is so highly valued that in Ancient Greece and Rome rose petals were used to perfume and decorate their baths.

Other than a luxury item though, Rose also has many therapeutic, health and beauty benefits due to its natural anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. Its high levels of antioxidants help to protect skin cells and its natural oils help to lock moisture in, whilst soothing and calming at the same time.

We have many wonderful Rose products to choose from, each with their own unique uses and properties.
