Rose Petals and Buds
Rose petals and buds are widely used in recipes for Wellness Herbal blends and tonics, due to the calming properties they have. The aroma of these beautiful petals make it a great ingredient in many desserts, as well as beauty products such as facial moisturizers, bath salts, and bath bombs.
To use as a tea, simply steep 2 teaspoons of the petals and buds in hot water. The brew will have a very light body, and you can infuse more of the flavor and aroma of rose in if you steep it longer (10-15 minutes).
If using in baking/cooking recipes, remove the petals from the buds so that a more authentic and bold flavor through in the recipes. You can then grind the petals to your liking.
