Roses and our health: Much more than meets the eye 🌹

Long associated with love, beauty and the heart, the rose is also a valuable herbal medicine. Over the past year or so, I have found myself thinking that just about everyone I come across could benefit from incorporating some rose into their life. Buying a bouquet of roses to uplift your home or workspace, or to brighten up a loved one’s day, is absolutely a lovely option – but there are many other ways to harness the power of roses. Read on to discover the spectrum of rose’s benefits and lots of ideas for incorporating them into your daily life.

There are three parts of the rose plant that are medicinal: the petals, leaves and rosehips. In this article I will be focusing on the petals, as these are generally the easiest to harvest or purchase, tend to be much more affordable than rosehips, and there are so many fun ways that rose petals can be used!

Skin health

Rose petals are known for their anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. They contain flavonoids such as quercetin, which help to calm down inflammation and soothe the tissues they come into contact with. Herbalists classify this as an “emollient” action, which means softening and soothing to the skin. Rose petals are also gently “astringent”, which means tonifying. This combination makes rose petals a valuable addition to your skincare routine, helping with redness, irritation, balancing skin quality and enhancing skin appearance overall. In the same way, rose can even be beneficial for remedying sunburns and other minor burns.

You definitely do not need to invest in a line of expensive skincare products to benefit from the skin-healing properties of rose. By infusing a strong tea of rose petals that you strain and transfer into a spritz bottle, you can make a skin toner that can tighten the pores and gently reduce oily skin, while also nourishing and soothing dry sensitive skin. You can even infuse rose petals into almond or jojoba oil that can be added into homemade lotions and creams.

Digestive health

Rose’s anti-inflammatory and astringent properties are just as soothing and tonifying to the lining of the digestive tract as they are to our skin. This means that by ingesting rose in tea or food and allowing it to come into contact with our gut lining, it can exert these helpful actions internally. This makes it potentially useful in cases of gingivitis, heartburn, gastritis, intestinal permeability and diarrhoea. As it is a gentle plant, to address conditions like these rose works best combined with other well-chosen herbs. Nevertheless, taken regularly on an ongoing basis rose can help to provide the conditions for optimal digestion.

A lovely way to get rose in is to add a small spoonful of petals to your cup of tea. Rose pairs nicely with other tasty teas such as chamomile, peppermint or lemon verbena. Strain out the petals before drinking, and you will notice your tea has an extra beautiful aromatic layer. You can also infuse some petals in high-quality honey for up to a week, and then use your “rose petal honey” in hot and cold drinks, baking and drizzled over pancakes.

Rose for the heart

If you have ever literally stopped to smell the roses, you will know what an instant sense of pleasure that brings! Herbalists consider rose to be a “nervine” – the term for a plant that affects the nervous system in some way. Rose is calming and uplifting, and its affinity for the heart makes it a helpful herbal ally during times of grief, loss, heartbreak, loneliness, depression and anxiety – any situation where the heart needs some comforting.

As well as including rose as part of skincare, tea and food as described above, think about other ways you can incorporate rose into your daily rituals. Adding a big handful of rose petals to your bath (or foot bath) is such an easy way to treat yourself, and to calm and revitalise your nerves after a long day. You can also make a linen spray or room spray by making a strong rose tea, straining the liquid and transferring it to a spray bottle. Adding some lavender and lemon balm to the mix can further enhance the uplifting properties.

Considerations for sourcing:

When buying rose petals, make sure to choose organic, and look for petals that are still vividly coloured. When you open the bag, you should be met with a potent fragrance. You can absolutely use domestic roses from the garden, as long as pesticides have not been used. Roses from florists are not suitable. If you are lucky enough to have wild roses growing around you, make sure to harvest from plants away from roadsides and land sprayed with chemicals, and take only what you need. Remember that the roses left on the plant will bring joy to the people walking by, and this too is medicine.

How herbs can help you 🌿

Naturopaths and herbalists are extensively trained in herbal medicine and are excited by the many ways that herbs can profoundly improve health and minimise symptoms. However, I find that many people are actually confused by the term “herbal medicine” and are unsure how herbs can help them. So I would like to outline some ways that herbs assist your body to regain optimal health.

Herbs are sources of nutrients. Herbs are a concentrated source of vitamins, minerals and unique phytochemicals which support our body to function. As our foods are now mostly grown in nutrient-deficient soils and we tend to eat less fresh foods than we should, herbs are a great way to boost our vitamin and mineral intake. Phytochemicals, or “plant chemicals”, include substances like curcumin which modulates inflammation, and quercetin which helps to reduce allergy symptoms.

Herbs assist our digestion. Many people contend with all kinds of digestive symptoms, including heartburn, bloating, pain, constipation and diarrhea. We have many herbs that effectively ease these symptoms and support our digestive tract to reduce the occurrence of these symptoms in the first place. And best of all, when we improve our digestion, there are positive flow-on effects in the rest of our body.

Herbs can improve your energy levels and sleep. Depending on your health history and your current situation, there are many herbs that can provide you with an energy boost, support you through a gruelling time and assist you to get restorative sleep through the night so that you can wake feeling refreshed.

Herbs assist us to detoxify. Of course we have our own inbuilt system of detoxification, involving our liver and lymph, along with other body systems too. However, our detoxification systems can become overburdened due to our diet and lifestyle choices, and even the environment we live in. Herbs can assist these body systems to clear waste products more efficiently so that we can feel better and function more effectively. Reducing our “toxic burden” simultaneously reduces inflammation in the body, which is a contributor to many of the health challenges we face.

• Herbs tend to work in particular parts of the body, which means the right herbs can be used to help with just about anything – menstrual symptoms, brain function, heart health, skin conditions, anxiety, immune function … and maintaining general wellness and vitality.

Just like there are many conditions herbs can be used for, there are also many ways that herbs can be taken. You do not need to drink herbal tea every day – although for many people that is a beneficial option. Working with an experienced practitioner can help you to figure out which herbs are most appropriate for you and ways of taking them that are most suitable for you and your lifestyle.

Shamanic Space Clearing

How it works: I use Shamanic Journeying tools to connect with the space and with my guide and helpers. I then remote view the house clairvoyantly and intuitively so that I can remove and transmute energies from my clients’ living or work spaces to restore energy, harmony, peace, flow, and promote growth in their home and their lives.

Once this work is completed, clients often report feeling more grounded, relaxed, energised, and that they feel more harmonious energies in the home.

Working with clients remotely, I open sacred space and commune with the House, the Land Energy, and with Spirit to intuit what is needed. I ask for information and guidance for you in relation to your space. Then I rattle and sage the home, office, or building within sacred space remotely holding the vision of the space in my mind while I shamanically journey - meaning, I go into a mild trance state - to the Spirit world or ‘non-physical reality.’

I will conduct healing and clearing of the space, for removal of that which is not serving the highest good. I usually visualise each energy that is removed, enabling me to write a report about the experience.

This is a remote healing for any location. You receive a written report.

7 Day Chakra Challenge

READY to bring balance to your body and mind.
READY to ignite your passion and creativity.
READY to boost your self-esteem, self-confidence, and self-love.

Life is busier than ever, and we can get more done than ever before! But our need for productivity can lead to burnout.

  • Do you feel like you’re drifting through life on auto-pilot?
  • Are you constantly stressed and anxious?
  • Is communication always a struggle?
  • Do you feel run down with no energy?
  • Are you constantly questioning your decisions?
    These are all symptoms of blocked chakras

Here’s what’s possible when you learn to balance your chakras…

  • Create a positive attitude that attracts joy into your life.
  • Feel more energized and driven.
  • Connect to your purpose and live with a deep sense of fulfillment.
  • Ignite your creativity and motivation.

What if I told you everything you needed to live your best life was already within you?

Each chakra can be correlated to everything from physical pain and discomfort in the body, to our relationships with others, emotional wellbeing, and our sense of purpose. Balancing our chakras ensures that our energy is flowing smoothly, and brings a sense of calm and peace into our lives.

This course includes a 60 min Yoga practice for balancing each Chakra and also 15-20 min meditation to connect with the Chakra at the energy level. All these videos are part of this course and you have access to them for lifetime once you sign up for the course.

Day 1 : Root Chakra
When the Root Chakra energy is vibrant and flowing well, we have a great connection to the earth and feel reassured.We are not struggling to feel safe and secure. We just are! This Chakra and energy governs our survival and stability, controlling fight or flight responses.

Day 2 : Sacral Chakra
This Chakra and energy governs our emotions. It is linked to our feelings, creativity, sensuality, and sexuality. When this energy is vibrant, we embrace and enjoy life .We can easily let go of situations without excessive dwelling, and we can express ourselves without being selfish or cruel. We tend to ooze happiness and find joy everywhere!

Day 3 : Solar Plexus Chakra
This Chakra and energy is all about your personal power and how much of your life you take accountability for. When this energy is vibrant and flowing well, we are confidently decisive but still able to enjoy the spirit of spontaneity. We have a strong sense of purpose combined with healthy self-esteem. When it is out of balance, you may feel out of touch with the fire within you.

Day 4 : Heart Chakra
This Chakra energy plays a significant role in attaining overall energetic balance. It relates to our ability to give and receive love. It circulates our emotional energy and governs our empathy, ability to forgive, compassion, divine love, and how we process grief. Without your heart Chakra being open, love cannot and will not prevail.

Day 5 : Throat Chakra
This Chakra and energy governs our communication and creativity and is linked to our independence, use of language and ability to speak our truth. Not being able to freely communicate or express your thoughts and opinions will cause this Chakra to fall out of balance

Day 6 : Third Eye Chakra
This Chakra and energy governs our intuition, thoughts, and imagination, resulting in our ability to self-reflect and have a vision. When this energy is balanced, we have clarity of mind and great focus. We’re able to accept and live our truth. We are not easily distracted.

Day 7 : Crown Chakra
This Chakra and energy is linked to spiritual awareness, presence of true mindfulness and universal unity. When in balance, we are open to knowledge and the wisdom of others and are living our best, most fulfilled, and peaceful life.
