Organic Rose Petals

Our rose petals are dried and "whole". This does not mean that they are unbroken, but that they have not been purposefully cut, powdered, or broken into a much smaller size. These are organic red roses of the species Rosa centifolia. Only our 10 g size is prepackaged and ready for immediate sale; all other sizes must be requested. 10 g amounts roughly to ¼-⅓ cup.

Our herbs are sourced from high quality food or tea grade distributors unless otherwise noted, but they are for magical purposes only as they have not been repackaged in a commercial kitchen and therefore are not approved by Health Canada for consumption. All items are stocked at our booth at the 400 Market. All our prices are inclusive of sales tax within Canada.

Roses span over 300 species with various cultivars, colours, and growth patterns. They have historical symbolic associations and cultural significance, representing love and passion.

Rose flowers are thought to act on the spleen and liver to promote blood circulation. They are used to treat poor appetite or digestion, as well as menstrual complaints. Rose leaves are reportedly used in TCM to treat fevers, but it is unclear how they are utilized. Rose is considered in Ayurveda to be bitter, carminative, cold, light, and sweet. It is used as a cardiac tonic and constipative. It can improve the complexion, and it may increase semen flow.

Roses symbolize love and emotion, enhancing love and protection magic. They are used in luck mixtures, protection wreaths, and for attracting love.
