Your face will blossom with love using floral water
Wild roses have many skincare benefits but are also ancient teachers in love. Their silky petals with delicate scents and amazing colours stimulate the mind and open the heart. This simple plant has a long history. Wild roses have been around for centuries – fossilised plants can be found even forty million years later.
In legends and ancient mythology, the wild rose symbolises perseverance, vitality, bitter love, and beauty. To Native Americans in many tribes, wild roses were a symbol of life. They believed that wild roses kept ghosts away.
The ancient Romans in Europe were fond of roses and scattered rose petals across the floor at public ceremonies, drank rose water, and ate rose pudding. Roses were so valued in the 17th century that European royal families considered them barter goods. In Islamic cultures, the rose is often used to scent garments.
In Estonia, the wild rose is also believed to be a powerful plant. 15 species of wild roses are known to grow in Estonia, most of which are rare or grow only on islands and in Western Estonia. It was believed that lightning would not touch the farm if wild roses and rowan were planted in the yard or by a gate.
A wild rose is a friend who never fails
Roses and wild roses have been an essential remedy in European folk medicine since the beginning of time. The wild rose has a slightly cooling effect and a wide range of uses. For example, it can be helpful with headaches, ear and throat pain, fever, diarrhoea, burns, and healing wounds. Rose hips or fruits are highly valued as a medicine thanks to their high vitamin C content, which is exceptionally high in Estonian wild rose berries! Wild rose petals are disinfectant and antibacterial. Gargling with wild rose water and wild rose tea can be used to treat inflammation of the tonsils.
