Rose petal powder
(Sold by weight not volume)
Roses have long been associated with beauty and our rose petal powder is no exception. Roses have been an integral part of skin and hair care for centuries in the forms of rose water, rose essential oil and rose petal powder. These preparations not only rejuvenate our skin and hair but also work their magic on our internal organs and hormones. Rose petal powder is anti-inflammatory and is rich in anti-oxidant and anti-bacterial compounds as well as vitamin C. It soothes the scalp and skin and stimulates collagen production.
Rose petal powder increases blood flow to hair follicles, encouraging hair growth, making hair stronger and reducing hair fall. It hydrates the hair making it look smoother, shinier and giving it more volume. It gives relief from dry, itchy scalps and skin. It restores damaged hair and balances the pH.
For skin it smoothes out skin pigmentation, dark spots and blemishes, and it tightens pores and softens skin. It regulates oil production in the skin, soothes sunburnt skin and relieves the swelling and redness of acne and pimples.
Hydrating hair mask: Combine 2 tablespoons (depending on hair length) of rose petal powder, with half a teaspoon of amla powder, 1 tablespoon of extra-virgin olive or coconut oil and enough coconut milk to make a smooth paste. Apply to your hair and scalp and leave on for 1 hour. Rinse off with warm water and shampoo. Use once a week for best results.
Rejuvenating rose face pack: Mix 2 tablespoons of rose petal powder, with enough water (preferably filtered or spring) to make a paste. Apply the mixture to your face and neck. Leave it on for 20 minutes, then rinse off with cold water, gently massaging the pack on your skin like a scrub while rinsing. You can repeat this nightly. You can add the following ingredients to your mask depending on your skin type:
- natural yoghurt for oily skin
- dairy cream for dry skin
- honey and rose water for acne and pimples
- avocado for dry skin
- rooibos tea for rejuvenation
Rose petal exfoliating body wash: Mix 1/2 cup of rose petal powder, 1/4 cup of extra-virgin, cold-pressed coconut oil and 2 tablespoons of natural honey in a bowl. Mix together and when you’re in the shower, rub this mixture gently all over your wet body and rinse off. You can add 1/4 cup of white sugar if you want a more exfoliating action. Use once a week for soft skin.
For all herbal treatments, whether for the skin or the hair, regular use is necessary. In some cases you will need to use the herb/s for at least 2 months for best results.
