Delicately Preserved Rose Flower Essences in Organic Cane Sugar
For centuries, roses have been treasured for their beauty, fragrance, and medicinal properties. The ancient Greeks, Romans, and Egyptians used them for various purposes ranging from perfume and cosmetics to medicine and rituals. Even today, roses remain a popular flower, especially for special occasions like weddings and Valentine's Day.
However, roses have more to offer than just their aesthetics and symbolism. When combined with organic cane sugar, rose flower essences create a deeply penetrating heart-opening plant medicine that not only tastes divine but also supports overall spiritual health and balance.
In this blog post, we'll dive into the benefits of rose flower essences in organic cane sugar and how you can incorporate them into your apothecary.
What are rose flower essences?
Rose flower essences are liquid extracts that capture the vibrational energy and essence of the rose plant, along with the rosy-scented flowers in this blend, rose bee balm, rose thyme.
Unlike essential oils, which are extracted through steam or chemical distillation and contain concentrated plant compounds, flower essences capture the subtle energies and emotional qualities of the plant. Therefore, they are used mainly for emotional and spiritual healing rather than physical healing. Rose flower essences, in particular, are known for their heart-opening and uplifting properties. They are believed to enhance self-love, compassion, connection, and joy while reducing fear, anxiety, grief, and depression.
Sugar Cane Saccharum officinarum as Medicinal Herb
Although it is much maligned in contemporary health and wellness dogma, did you know that sugar cane has a long and fascinating history as an herbal medicine?
The first recorded use of sugar cane as a medicine comes from ancient India, and it is a revered herb with a long and storied history of use in Ayurvedic and Traditional Chinese medicine as well as in Western Eclectic herbalism.
Similar to tobacco in its role as an advocate/ intermediary, sugar cane is a powerful herbal ally amplifying and carrying the full spectrum of medicinal components of an accompanying plant medicine deep into the body. There is indeed wisdom in the expression, "A spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down."
Of course, as is so often the case (ie: tobacco, cannabis, opium, coca, coffee, cacao, etc.), modern overuse and refining processes have inverted the powerful medicinal qualities of sugar cane into powerful disease vectors.
With a goal in mind of reclaiming the positive aspects of this powerful herbal ally, we have found that simple organic cane sugar preserves and amplifies flower essences particularly well, making for a combination where each element is elevated in the presence of the other.
How are rose flower essences and organic cane sugar combined?
We hand harvest flowers and gently infuse them fresh into a layered bed of organic sugar cane. Over the course of 24 hours the flower essences are transcribed and infused into the sugar medium before being dried.
