A rose petal infusion Roses: they may be a star ingredient in the beauty and fragrance worlds, but they also boast a host of nutritional benefits, making them an equally great addition to any grocery shopping list. For the tastiest results, sip them eastern-style with an organic red rose tea (even better made with homegrown rose petals) that delivers an antioxidant-rich and vitamin C-packed jolt and an added skin-smoothing boost that help nix signs of fatigue. To make your own rose infusion, add a handful of organic red rose petals to four cups of water and bring to the boil. Then, allow the mix to infuse. Finally, sweeten to taste with a little agave syrup.
