Seasons are changing and that means your routine is due for an overhaul.

I have come to love this flower as a powerful tool for all sorts of purposes. Its smell evokes nostalgic memories for my grandmother’s garden, and a rose essential oil is one of the first small but unique gifts my boyfriend gave me. I like to use rose pedals in my baths and the oil in my my essential oil diffuser for a spa-like experience. Skincare brands know the power of rose as an ingredient. It has anti-inflammatory, soothing, hydrating and regenerating benefits. June is National Rose Month and what better way to celebrate than with a list of the best green beauty products that use the rose ingredient. 8 Best Products With the Rose ingredient Tammy Fender Bulgarian Rose Water Georgette Klinger Rose Clarifying Toner Mullein & Sparrow Hydrating Face Mist Toner …
