I have a box of rose tea, which are whole small dried rose buds, they don't taste strong enough as a tea so they are sitting at the back of the pantry.  I have the urge to turn them into a powder but don't know where I would use it ... would love to hear any ideas...  Smiley

Found this on the net



Organic Rose tea recipes for your skin and hair:
An easy recipe that will help to remove build up, restore the natural pH balance & rejuvenate your scalp.

Suitable for all hair types.

Honey Rose Apple Cider Vinegar Hair Rinse

Prep Time: 20 mins

What you will need:
1 Large Pyrex jar or bowl
Cling film
1 Clean & dry glass Jar with lid
1 Strainer
Kettle to boil the water

1. Put the Dried Pink Rose Buds into the bowl & add Honey

2. Boil the kettle. Once boiled pour the hot water over the Rose & Honey mix, then add the Apple Cider Vinegar.

3. Stir the mixture, cover the bowl with cling film and let steep for 10 minutes or until cool.

4. When the mixture has cooled sufficiently strain the herb from the liquid into the jar.

5. Pour the liquid over the scalp allowing the mixture to saturate your hair, message gently for 2 minutes

6. Rinse with cold water to seal the cuticles

Only make enough for 1 rinse and use it FRESH on the day you make it.

NOTE:
Keep your eyes closed when using the Honey Rose Apple Cider Vinegar Hair Rinse also do not use if you have broken skin.



Use floral herbs like Chamomile, Lavender and/or Rose with Apple Cider Vinegar to cleanse, balance & tone her skin.

Suitable for Oily skin types
(I have combination skin & it works well for me too.)

Floral Facial Steam & Tone
Enough boiled water to fill half of a large Pyrex bowl
10g / 0.35oz of Organic Rose Buds
10g / 0.35oz of Organic Chamomile Flowers
10g / 0.35oz of Organic Lavender Buds
1 teaspoon of Apple Cider Vinegar

Prep Time: 20 mins

What you will need:
1 Large Pyrex jar or bowl (3 litre bowl if possible)
2 Big cotton balls
1 medium to large towel
2 small plates
Kettle to boil the water

1. Place 2 cotton balls in a little Apple Cider Vinegar & cold water leave one out and place the other in the fridge or freezer

2. Take a teaspoon of dried Organic Chamomile & Organic Rose OR dried Organic Lavender & Organic Rose

3. Put it into the Pyrex bowl.

4. Boil some water

5. Carefully pour the hot water over the herbs

6. Hold your head over the bowl & drape a towel over your head. Allow the herbal steam to open your pores to loosen oil & dirt.

7. Lightly pat your skin with the Apple Cider Vinegar cotton ball that was left out, making sure that you avoid the eye area.

8. Then take the Apple Cider Vinegar cotton ball that was chilling in the fridge or freezer and pat your skin to close the pores avoiding the eye area.


Vitamin C content in Organic Roses:
"Rose teas are able to supply as much as 1000 mg. per cup. Recent studies now indicate that taking more than 2000 mg. of vitamin C per day changes the vitamin into a pro-oxidant that actually increases cellular damage caused by unstable free radicals. Other experts seem to think that this action takes place with as little as 1000 mg. of vitamin C per day."

Other ideas:
Use the Roses in a foot soak and/or nail soak.
OR
Infuse the Rose Buds with hot water and use it with our Rhassoul Deep Condishes - your hair will love the Organic Cocoa-Rose Deep Treat.

Happy Herbing!

Umm... Rose EO  costs about $100 for around 5ml.😱. 😄

I always wondered what the rose T2 would be like.

I love the T2 teas MeganJane but the rose one just didn't have enough flavour/fragrance for me. I was also hoping the buds would open or unfold in the hot water... but they don't.

Thanks for the suggestions, I might do half as a potpourri with some oils I have already (geranium perhaps) but still feel compelled to powderise some in the thermomix for something edible... maybe to add to something sweet.   Cool

I use them often  - they don't brew up strong when making tea the traditional way (just infused in hot water).
I simmer them in filtered water with sugar ( a teaspoon per cup of water) for a minimum of 10 minutes, usually longer, as it takes at least this much time for the flavor to develop and I taste as it progresses.  If the buds have been stored for awhile, it make take more than 30 minutes for the flavor to develop satisfactorily.
I then use the resulting "syrup" in brewed tea, or sprinkle on shortbread just prior to baking.
