In TCM, the liver is closely linked to the menstrual cycle of women, being involved in both its physiological and emotional aspects.
As roses can enter the liver meridian to soothe the liver and clear qi and blood stasis, they are thus able to relief menstrual problems such as PMS, irregular periods, breast tenderness and distention, painful periods etc, when these are caused by qi or blood stagnation of the liver,
In addition, roses are said to refine skin texture, moisturise the skin, reduce inflammation and slow down aging.
Seems like other than being pretty and fragrant themselves, they can make you beautiful and healthy too!
