The perfume of rose enchants everyone. It is used widely in numerous products. You can find it in almost everything, from soaps, perfumes, talcum powder, deodorants,medicines,etc .Did you know it has a lot of vitamin C in it, hence it is used for medicinal purposes. 

If I love roses I would definitely use its products, right. I have some beauty tips for you. Guys! don’t go away, you can also benefit from it. How? Well if you have sore and swollen eyes ( because of too much viewing of computer) just take few drops of ‘Gulabjal’ (rose water) on two small strips of cotton and keep it on your covered eyes for 10 to 15 minutes and see the difference, This is my little secret I had shared a few days ago with my Fiance, now he trusts my remedies even more than before. Gee!!

Some Uses:You know what, This product is always a part of my cosmetics.I use it to cleanse my face, I also use it for my face masks instead of water .

You can also put it in your bathing water and enjoy!! It works as a cleanser, a moisturizer, a substitute for pure water. regular usage will give better results.

Tell me, after a party at home. What do you do with the bouquets?? Normally we keep the good ones in the vase and throw the others away.

Hmm This is what you can do, just grab the best flowers, preferably roses since they emit a scent, which is thought to be capable of giving you a good and happy feeling. Its called aroma therapy. Just pluck the petals off and mix it in your bathing water and experience a relaxing and soothing feeling.

And if you don’t have rose petals , you can always use rose water.






Do you want a Real Queenly Bath, See this.

Cleopatra of Egypt since then has been considered one of the most beautiful women of the history, and her Rose Petal, Milk & Honey with Myrrh bath has ever since been known as her legendary secret to her astounding beauty with her soft and splendorous skin.

In fact the Milk‘s lactic acid dissolves the proteins that bind dead skin cells together, achieving a great exfoliation and cleansing effect. The milk’s natural fat on the other hand hydrates and moisturizes the skin, resulting in a very smooth and well-tended skin.

The Honey contained in this bathing recipe has an antiseptic effect, which protects the skin from aging by warding from irritation through biological strain.

The Myrrh ingredient has a very nice, natural, warm and light spicy-sweet scent of balsamic finesse and its potent therapeutic properties again sanitize and protect the skin from infection.

The Cleopatra’s Milk & Honey with Myrrh bath is a great occasion to enhance it as a Rose Petal bath, to enrich it with the heavy and sweet flowery rose scent and to pay homage to the sovereign you carry in yourself.

With this bathing recipe you’ll observe and feel a marked wellness difference to before. The milk’s fat complex will leave your skin slightly oily after the bath for a short while, during which it continues to naturally moisturize your skin and will change over to a smooth appearance of your skin soon after like a lotion.

  • 4-6 cups of fresh heated milk or buttermilk
  • 4-6 tea spoons of honey
  • 6-8 drops myrrh essence
  • 2-3 blossomed sweet scenting roses

Check your next flower store for 2-3 sorted out blossomed roses and pluck the petals in a separate bowl. Fill the bathtub with water to the level and the temperature of your liking. In a bowl mix the warm to hot, but not boiling milk or buttermilk with the honey, which will fully dissolve due to the temperature. Now add the myrrh essence drops right before you lace the mix to the ready bathing water. Strew the fresh rose petals in your bath and immerse for a really great time for your body, mind & soul.
