Wild wild roses…

It’s that time of the month again. Everyone and everything around you just seems so.. “blah”. If you’re anything like me, chances are (pre)menstrual syndrome can tear you down physically and emotionally. So I’ve listed my top natural remedy to fight it. It basically all comes down to wild rose.

1) At home spa

I usually lock myself up in the bathroom, putt on a hair mask, face mask. Then I make a natural sugar scrub with olive oil, sugar, and natural rose extract. When the bathroom is steamed up enough I give myself a good scrub especially around my painful underbelly area.

2) Rose tea

Rose tea is made from dried whole rose blossoms or petals. Rose tea contains high amounts of vitamin C, polyphenols, vitamin A, various minerals, nerol, geraniol, myrcene, quercetin and other antioxidants.

Next to relieving pain and regulate hormones Rose Tea is also excellent to reduce:

Moods swings caused by hormonal disbalance.
As Rose tea is extremely high in vitamin C it stimulates the production of white blood cells and functions as an antioxidant which also lowers the risk of getting chronic diseases.

Rose tea is a great help in stress relief, making it a Wonderfull beverage to finish your day with and enjoy a peaceful night of sleep.

Another benefit of rose tea is that it’s a great detoxifier for the body. Active ingredients help to improve liver function and increase urination while speeding the release of toxins from the body. It can also help with digestion and help rebalance the microflora in the intestines and relieve digestive issues like constipation, cramping, bloating or diarrhoea.

If you know some magical natural remedies for that time of the month, please share.
