The Magic of Rose

Rose, a perennial flowering plant, is one of Earth's greatest medicinal secrets. Though commonly perceived as a beautiful flower that makes for a thoughtful gift, most don't realize the incredible health benefits the entire rose plant provides. Its petals and accessory fruit (known as rose hip) supply a lengthy list of perks for skin, hair, and mental and emotional wellbeing. At Nora, we love incorporating anything rose into our products through an array of ingredients, including our homemade rose water and rose hydrosol. Our Valentine Collection highlights the powers of the plant, especially through rose and rose hip oils.

The smell of rose alone is truly captivating, so it's really no wonder the plant holds seemingly-magical capabilities. If you've used products containing pure rose, you know what we're talking about. Here are some of the stunning benefits the rose plant naturally provides for our health:
