Wellness Worthwhile - Roses are red!
Every month in 2013 keep a look out for our Wellness Worthwhile Tip from Wild Dunes Resorts' Sand & Sea Salon and Spa Director, Sally Hickerson! This month Sally tells us about the health benefits of red roses!
Red Rose Day was June 12th. It’s the perfect time to talk about the health benefits of red roses.
Internally, if taken as a tea, red rose can have an uplifting effect, relieving fatigue, depression, and insomnia.It can help relieve runny nose, sore throats, and bronchial infection symptoms. It has been found to be effective in treating patients that are prone to chest problems. Rose can also be used as a diuretic to help flush out toxins and have a cooling effect on the body.
Externally, that same cooling property can be applied to decrease irritation and redness in skin, working in the same way that a tonic or antiseptic would. The additional benefits to your whole self’s wellbeing are myriad but you don’t have to take my word for it. Take a little time to do some research and see if red rose could be helpful to you too.
For your health!
