The Benefits of Rose Tea
Rose Tea has so many benefits that it is considered a staple in our household herbal medicine cabinet. The use of roses for medicinal purposes dates back centuries and they are also extremely useful for topical skin care applications as well as for nutritional benefits.
Today, I’m going to share how to make a fragrant cup of nutritional and medicinal goodness that provides valuable antioxidants such as vitamin C. It promotes good digestive health, draws out fever and has a calming effect on the nervous system.
If you suffer from severe menstrual cramps, it is recommended to drink one cup of rose tea per day and it also promotes a good night’s sleep because of it’s relaxing properties.
To make a basic Rose Tea, all that is needed are dried rosebuds and water.

Pour 2 cups of hot water (not boiling, boiling water could lessen the properties of the roses) over 3 teaspoons of dried rosebuds.
Let the buds steep for about 3 minutes, strain.
After about three minutes, the rose petals should begin to fade and your tea will be a nice golden color.
Add cream and honey to taste. Enjoy!
*Those with allergies to the Rose family should not consume rose tea.
**Rose Tea, when consumed in large amounts, has a laxative effect on the body so, please exercise caution when drinking.
