Organic Beautifying Rose Tea
Rose tea is one of the best herbal teas to add to your beauty rituals. If you’re looking to detox some weight or maintain your healthy figure this is a great tea to use. Rose tea has many benefits that relate to beauty including skin, gut, nail, and hair health due to the high antioxidant properties. Antioxidants are compounds that help combat the effects of free radicals. If you’re looking to extend your beauty, antioxidants must become your best friend.

Rose tea is rich in polyphenols, such as gallic acid, anthocyanins, kaempferol, and quercetin. Polyphenols are micronutrients that we get through certain plant-based foods. All roses are edible and can be used in tea, but some varieties are sweet and delicate while others can be more robust or bitter. I prefer to make the tea from what I have on hand. In some cases, it’s fresh petals from my yard. You don’t want to steep store-bought flowers because they likely contain harmful chemicals used to grow the roses.
