Rose Petal Thirst Quencher
The essence of rose appears in aroma therapy, and tonics are made from mixing rose paste, water, and spices. Cold poultices with rose and sandalwood paste are sometimes recommended to cool any burning. The rose enhances beauty in many ways. Local applications (such as in creams and poultices) cool, moisturize, and tone the skin. Massaging the body with rose and sandalwood sachets enhances beauty. The essence of rose augments the glow and complexion of the skin.
If you are feeling the effects of the hot summer sun, have to skip a meal for some reason, or are under emotional stress, it can be challenging to keep cool. Try this heart-soothing thirst quencher.
The Rose Petal Thirst Quencher is inexpensive and simple to make, but it has many benefits. It works quickly, because you inhale the aroma of the rose as you drink it, injecting every cell of your body with rose essence. It can also soothe hyperacidity. It's a good drink to sip before going to bed, or any time Sadhaka Pitta is out of balance, which can cause you to toss, turn, and wake up before you are fully rested. Anyone who is feeling constantly irritated could benefit from this drink twice a day. This mixture can also support memory, because it enhances the coordination between heart and mind and nourishes the mind with its pleasant flavor and aroma. It's a healthy drink for people of all ages, from children to the elderly.
For women, sipping this drink before and during menstruation can help stabilize the emotions. It also has a long-term effect, because the Organic Rose Petal Spread enlivens all the body tissues by enlivening the cell-regeneration process, and especially regenerates the reproductive (shukra) tissues. Finally, because the rose is one of the best sources for water-soluble fiber, Organic Rose Petal Spread and any of the drinks that contain it help cleanse the intestines and alleviate occasional constipation.
