In many European countries, the rose has long been a symbol of nobility, and has decorated the emblems of ancient families. Red roses have always symbolised love: the ancient Greeks believed that the scarlet rose petals were due to the blood of Aphrodite, who was hurrying to meet her beloved Dionysus and did not notice how she was wounded by thorns of white roses.
The useful properties of drinks made from this rose can be enumerated endlessly: it is good as an expectorant, used to calm the stomach and intestinal mucosa, and is used to lower blood pressure. Pink petals contain a large amount of vitamins C and B, which strengthens the immune system and help to fight viruses. Do not forget that at all times rose infusions were used as an elixir of beauty, because it stimulates the regeneration of the skin.
