HEART OPENING EMOTIONAL TONIC
The beauty and scent of rose have been coveted since time began. Conjuring up romantic and lustful feelings and long lost memories of first dates, rose has always been associated with the heart. I like to think of rose medicine for someone who has built a wall around their heart and finds it hard to let someone else in on both a spiritual and emotional level. It is also the flower of choice for those wanting to open their hearts to find a commonality with others. I personally find that the energy of rose helps me to connect and speak with the plant and natural world as well!
The rose energy resonates with those experiencing grief and hurt and those very real feelings of broken heartedness. It has a sweetness and lightness of spirit that hand in hand with the master healer, time, helps to nourish and fill up that space in the heart withered by loss. It cleanses the spirit of energies that need to be dispersed and protects you from meeting with those vibes again. Think of the open softness of the rose but also the thorns which help to maintain its boundaries.
I think that rose really resonates most with the spiritual self but on a purely physical level it has astringent, soothing and toning actions which do have physical benefits for the tissues. Its astringent action provides benefit for leaky and inflamed tissues of the digestive, urinary and vascular system as well as for the eyes.
Rose powder can be used internally in cakes, beverages or can be added to clay or masks as it has an astringent but moisturizing action.
