Herb of the Month: Rose Petals

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.

Rose petals can be added to tea blends, bath salts, yoni steams, salves, soaps, or sprinkled around the home to soften the heart and expand into love.

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:

Open Heart Salve

In The Mood: Sensual Bath Soak

Glowing Heart Ceremonial Mist

Orbits of the Heart Tea and Tincture

Aphrodite Smoke Blend

Sexy Time Oil Blend

Blue Flame Cordial

Ignite! Tea Blend

As a sprite young sunflower Amelia began dancing in her back yard, twirling amongst the tall grass, trees, and throughout her mothers garden. As a dancer her curiosity for movement and its healing abilities allured her into the world of Yoga. While practicing yoga as a means to find union and synergy in her health Amelia was introduced to the world of naturopathy. Experiencing a lifelong challenge with anxiety and panic attacks she finally found herself in the office of a naturopath in Durango, Colorado. Two weeks into completely changing her diet and using herbal supplements Amelia understood that our relationship with food and plants is vastly expansive. Amelia is amazed at the body’s ability to heal itself along with the role herbs play to assist in healing.

Amelia is twirling through and exploring the world of academia and hopes to merge her curiosities of the earth, movement, and spirituality. When she’s not sashaying through the forest or in a down dog, you can find her reading Harry Potter for the seventh time, creating new hairstyles, or listening to The Robcast.
