Herbs for peace of mind and harmony. Rose.
Rose - against stress and worries
Stressful times have come to Europe. Unfortunately, also in the 21st century, we are not immune to actions of insane persons. Hopefully the war does not last long and does not lead to world destruction. But fears, anxiety, stress, nervous tension have not saved anybody yet. If one can do something - do. If not, it is much better to maintain peace, good mood, joy of life and spread it. I try to apply this philosophy in my life. It helps me. And herbs help a lot to stay calm, concentrated on what one does, not allowing stress to prevail. There are many soothing, harmonizing herbs. I reread my stored information about stress soothing herbs and thought of sharing this with you. Today I write about rose. It has been used for centuries for medicinal purposes. I am sure that @torey @judsoncarroll4 have written a lot about this wonderful plant. One can always read more about this wonderful plant.
The scent of roses, the petals of roses have a calming, relaxing effect, soothe tense nerves, influence peaceful, calm thoughts.
A cup of tea with rose petals will soothe. Well, maybe it won’t paint the world pink, but thoughts might turn the other way. A much calmer way. Happier way.
A teaspoon of dried petals is enough for one cup of tea. Fill with hot water, be sure to cover for 5-10 minutes. Drink several times a day.
I found a recipe for Rose wine. It is an old recipe of the Roman gourmet Marcus Gavius Apicius (1st century AD).
Put a handful of dried rose petals in a linen sack. Bind (he suggests sewing). Pour over dry white wine. After 7 days, change the rose petals and put the sack back into wine. Leave for another 7 days, then strain and add a little honey when enjoying a glass of it.
I have not tried it yet, but am about to start today.
