“The cowslip is a country wench, the violet is a nun — but I will woo the dainty rose, the queen of every one.” Thomas Hood (1799-1845)
No other herb inspires such poetry, inspiration, and heart opening love as the rose. Not only is it a beautiful flower with an intoxicating fragrance, but it has some great medicinal benefits as well. Rose flowers are a wonderful female tonic, cardiovascular tonic, and have been used for thousands of years as an addition to beauty and skincare recipes. Rose hips are one of the highest sources of vitamin C and are a valuable addition to immune boosting tonics. They can be made into an oil that is wonderful for the skin as well. You can read all about rose in our November issue. I am here to tell you today about what will be in the November herb box (barring any changes that need to be made because of lack of supply).

Let me just give a little teaser about the rose facial cream.
“This luxurious face cream channels the skin-soothing powers of rose and is ideal for dry, mature, or sensitive skin. Rose hip seed oil is added because it’s an especially effective healer of scars, age spots, stretch marks, and sun damage.” – Jan Berry
