One of the most famous flowers, in the Rose family like Hawthorn, is the Rose itself.

Rose (Rosa spp - centifolia) has long served as a symbol of love and affection among many cultures.

  • Ask forgiveness
  • Opens heart, comforts
  • Grief, PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder), broken hearts
  • As a drink (tea, brandy, wine, elixir), aromatherapy, bath

P.S. Did you know the wild rose had 5-petals but has been bred to have many more in the modern varieties?
