The aroma of rose water stimulates our sensations and relaxes the mind. It is one scent which never goes “out of fashion” because it is essentially the scent of nature. The Egyptians were the first to discover the versatile uses of rose water. Essential rose oil is said to have aphrodisiac effects and it was used by none other than the timeless beauty Cleopatra to seduce her lover Anthony. She bathed in a tub brimming with milk and rose petals to lend that infamous glow to her skin. While in modern times, we may not be able to indulge in such luxuries, we can certainly accommodate this magical elixir in our health and beauty regime.
By little effect I mean, you can only expect, at most a 5-10% of improvement over your current acne condition. For this to happen, the three friends of mine needed about 4 weeks of time. If I were you, I would concentrate my energy, time and money on other more effective treatments. There is a big misconception about acne medication these days. People only want to have natural treatments but not medical treatments for their acne.
Knowing the right amount of watering is important, if roses are watered insufficiently they will die and if they are watered too much their roots will get shallow and unable to absorb nutrients. Deep watering is paramount to healthy roses as shallow watering will encourage fungal growth, yet their leaves should be kept dry in order to prevent disease.
Facial Steam – a facial steam releases stale oils from the pores and loosens debris sticking to the skin. Simply fill a small bowl with hot (not boiling) water. If you have any herbs or aromatherapy oils sprinkle in a few drops (for example, lavender and peppermint are stimulating, rosemary, eucalyptus and rose are cleansing, chamomile is soothing). If you don’t have any, that’s ok. Place a towel over your head and sit quietly with your head about 20 inches from the water, with the towel covering the bowl. Breathe deeply for about 5 minutes as you allow the steam to gently ease away cares and stress from your skin.
Roses can also harbor insect pests. Aphids secrete a substance that attracts ants, and spider mites construct webs on the undersides of leaves. Wash them away by blasting the leaves with water from the hose. A more serious predator, common in the Eastern United States, is the Japanese beetle, which will feed on the flowers and foliage of roses growing in bright sunlight. Gardeners who wish to avoid using insecticide granules or sprays can try milky spore disease powder to kill the grubs. A pyrethrum spray can be used to combat thrips and leafhoppers.
Peppermint is a medicinal herb that contains menthol. Peppermint can easily be grown in most of the climates. Crushed mint can be used as home remedy for acne. Just take a handful of mint leaves and crush them thoroughly with a mortal and pestle. Apply the crushed portion and juice of mint leaves on affected skin and leave for 5 to 10 minutes.
Proper preparation of the soil will make a significant difference to the vibrancy and successful flowering of a rose. You should dig over the soil to an average depth of about 12 in (30 cm), and ideally, except in the case of light, sandy soils, you should also break up the layer beneath this with a fork. Dig a planting hole broad and deep enough for the roots to spread, and for the bud union to be buried about 2 in (5 cm) deep.
Roses are just like other plants. They need constant attention. And also have the same basic needs like water, light, good soil, and a few more things we’ll get into. When you know exactly what to do caring for roses can be easy. All plants need water to survive. Roses are just the same. They only bloom and look their finest when they have been well watered. The roots really need to be taken into account when you water. Roses need about one inch of water a week. Roses’ roots go fairly deep so they can suck all the moisture deep below the surface, where the soil is dry. This allows rose bushes to tolerate dry weather.
