- Acquire fresh or dried fragrant rose petals, the darker and more fragrant the better (organic, not-sprayed)
- Chop until very fine
- Mix 1 part rose petals with 2-3 parts local raw honey, stir very well – set in a cool, dark place for two weeks. You may add more honey if the mixture seems dry.
- Take 1tsp+ every day. You can spread it on toast, stir into congee, have with tea, put in a smoothie, etc. I really like it stirred into hot milk or tea, or spread on top of homemade rustic bread.
- You can have as much as desired and tolerated, provided you are not pregnant or nursing!
This is also great with a little bit of orange or lemon peel: finely grate 2 teaspoons of lemon or orange peel per pint of rose petal honey, and stir to combine. Citrus peel is a great Qi mover of the Liver! With the combination of the three herbs (roses, honey, citrus peel) you have a tasty and powerful herbal formula that is uplifting to the spirit.
