3 Ways to Add Rose Petals into Your Life

 Honey Rose Tonic
Our Honey Rose tonic is a gentle detoxifier, and the perfect refreshment for any time of day. Its delicious and unique flavor profile comes from a combination of bold, semi-sweet, semi-spicy herbs and adaptogenic plants, including rose petals, honeybush, tulsi, and more. This combination of plants also helps boost immunity!
 
Rose tea
With a subtle floral taste and aroma, rose tea is a great way to enjoy all of the benefits of rose petals. A naturally caffeine free herb, rose petal tea can be enjoyed any time of day. It’s refreshing as a chilled ice tea, and soothing as a warm fragrant mug at night to wind down.
 
Rose aromatherapy
There’s nothing quite like the smell of rose petals! Diffusing rose essential oil throughout the home, especially the bedroom, can be a therapeutic way to keep the energy in your environment calm and cozy. You can also do rose palm inhalations to start or end the day on a positive, peaceful note.
