Do you deserve a rose petal bath?
If you have an abundance of roses growing in your garden then you can treat yourself to a rose petal bath, that is if you can bear to use up so much beauty for your own adornment!
Fill a large bucket with scented, freshly picked red rose petals. Put them in the bath and pour very hot water over them. Leave the water until you have the temperature you are happy with. Then soak in it for as long as you like.
You will get a nicely perfumed skin and will also be refreshed with the astringent quality of the petals.
Pliny the most famous medical expert and writer of the Roman period listed more than 30 medicines made from roses! He recommended roses for treating stomach and bladder disorders!
