Rose Infused Honey {Guest Post by Homegrown & Healthy}

“I’d rather have roses on my table than diamonds on my neck.” Emma Goldman

Roses: the iconic flower representing romance, love, beauty and appreciation. However, those beautiful, softly scented petals are for more than just show.

Did you know that roses are edible?

Not simply edible, but beneficial?

Roses having a soothing property and have long been regarded as a sedative, anti depressant, and all around stress reducer. From a nutritional standpoint it’s reassuring to know that roses are high in organic acids and nutrients, offering a ton of vitamin C.

(Of course, that doesn’t necessarily mean that you’ll want to eat every rose you come across. Especially avoid anything that comes from a florist–they cover those things in all kinds of chemicals–or eating flowers from a garden that utilizes pesticides or other chemicals. But you already know that, right?)

To best assimilate the nutrients and benefits of roses I’ve come up with this quick and method of preservation. Making your own Rose-infused Honey couldn’t be any simpler, and the end result is a delicious and healthy combination that you can add to tea, snacks and desserts. Or you can get extra creative and incorporate it into your natural skin care routine.

Rose honey can be used in any place that regular honey is used.
OR:
 On your morning pancakes
 Add tension-fighting properties to your evening cup of tea
Drizzle over cookies or muffins
 Flavor sodas naturally
Or skip the edibles all together and blend it into your daily face mask, or use it to to heal cuts and bruises.
The possibilities are endless!
