i tinctured the roses fresh on a perfect summer day 

i was surprised to see that the alcohol became pink and the roses looked like ghosts, 

completely leeched of their color. 

roses have a long history of use

they are said to be of service in heartbreak and grief

and in matters of love and passion

on one hand, they open the heart to love. on the other, they check and cool excess desire

energetically rose is cooling + mildly astringent

it gently cleans up the lymphatics

sweeps phlegm out of the system at large

and checks vaginal or seminal discharges. 

i tend to think of rose as a specific for very delicate, sensitive people

who tend towards weakness and deficiency.  

but it has classically also been equally used for people who are hot and in an excitation state

many good herbalists use it palliatively to relieve autoimmune excess

i take a different approach to autoimmune and work more on root causes

but rose is a very good very safe coolant and gentle astringent 

which would be of good use in autoimmune situations, fevers, congested menstrual cycles and feelings of liver congestions.

indeed many reliable authors of antiquity used rose to 'purge choler' as well as phlegm

though modern authors seem to focus on it's effects of purging phlegm and dealing with yeast issues

i find it notable here that while this can definitely be a constitutional imbalance,

i'ts important to consider lifestyle factors that could contribute to yeast issues

if you're eating a lot of dairy, sugar and processed foods or simple carbs (which break down to sugar)

there's a chance that you won't find the results you're hoping for

or maybe rose will work well as long as you continue to take it. 

sometimes we need a warming tea like fresh ginger for more gut related symptoms


i don't often use rose as a specific 

but i do use it as a main ingredient in tea blends.

good morning grouchy tea is the best tea on the market for sick days and daily detox (hold me to it) and contains rose petals.

rose colored glasses contains rose petals and rose hips. both are decorated best sellers and mood boosters. 

'boundaries' and 'the star' are excellent herbal teas that contains rose hips

and 'lucky you' from the charmed box also contains rose hips.
