    Dried rose petals

    Dried rose petals have been traditionally used in medicine, perfume, cosmetics, potpourri, and skin care. They are widely and beautifully used in cookery to make jam, syrup, beverages, deserts, etc. The syrup made of dried petals is a good source of vitamin C and is particularly good for children and small babies, as it is not too acidic for their immature stomachs. Preserves are generally used as a topping for ice creams, parfaits, and trifles. Mixing dried rose petals in boiled water serves as a good and refreshing facial steam. These petals are used as a delightful confection, a potent means of balancing emotions. Dried rose petals are often accepted most by churches and reception halls.
