We all love the smell of an enchanting rose garden. And who wouldn’t want to enjoy that same scent with their morning cup of tea? Roses have been used in infusions for hundreds if not thousands of years. It is far from a new phenomenon. Botanically known as Rosa of the Rosaceae family, the rose plant needs no introduction as its fascinating history establishes clearly.
Asia, in particular, has long adored rose petals. In Chinese, Indian, and even Middle-Eastern cuisine, rose petals are a common ingredient found in many culinary dishes while in Egypt, rose petals were used by the renowned ancient leader, Cleopatra (69 - 30 BCE), as, bewilderingly, an aphrodisiac. Centuries later, the French leader of equal renown, Napoleon Bonaparte (1769 - 1821 CE), recommended using rose petals to heal musket wounds. In fact, he commanded that all of his officers carry rose petals into battle.
But why should you choose to have rose petals in your tea? Aside from tasting great, rose petals are rich in vitamin C and can help support the immune system. Furthermore, rose petal laced infusions are thought to remedy many of the symptoms associated with menstruation, including cramping and mood swings.

These beverages were consumed nasally to ensure their tongues couldn’t taste whether the drink contained the extracts and after four weeks, results indicated a connectivity in regions of the brain associated with working memory.
