Roses are, across the board, one of our favorite flowers here at the Honey House. They’re beautiful and fragrant, and brighten our days when we see them in bouquets and in the garden. But, did you know that roses provide a punch of antioxidants and renewing properties when used topically? That’s what makes them such a vital ingredient for us!
Beautiful Blossoms with Powerful Properties
So many parts of a rose can be used in cosmetics. The oil and powders from rosehips provide a rich but gentle source of vitamins A and C and magnesium. These compounds assist with the regeneration of skin, while also soothing and nourishing dry, irritated complexions. Rosewater and rose absolute have anti-inflammatory properties that help to reduce redness in the skin, providing you with a softer, smoother complexion. Rose extracts help to balance oily and acne prone skin as well, making them ideal for use by almost anyone.
Ingredients derived from roses form the backbone of our Spa collection. Here, we’ve mixed together rose petals and pink salts, rosehip powder and honey crystals, and even rose absolute and oils to create skin-loving products.
The soft, warm fragrance of roses is romantic and soothing. This made them a perfect botanical to blend into our Spa Soak for a relaxing stay-at-home spa experience. Combined with the minerals in the sea and pink salts, rose petals and oils calm the skin and restore your glow.
Roses have also found their way into our body scrubs and butters. Spa Scrub is made with a blend of rosehip extracts and oils that give a punch of vitamins to tired, dry skin. Combined with jojoba oil and honey crystals, this scrub combats dullness and signs of aging. Spa Body Butter is lightly perfumed with a delicate mix of lavender and rose oils that leave the skin soft and refreshed.
