Rose is a beautiful herb, not just in her looks, but also in her additional actions. Rose supports the body’s natural response to inflammation, nurtures the nervous system, and strengthens connective tissue. She has a strong affinity for the female reproductive system and the heart. Because of this, she has a deep psycho-spiritual action surrounding past relationships, closed heartedness, sadness, depression, and loneliness; allowing for your heart to open.
