Crystal Herbalism – A Kind Reminder

We are constantly growing, blossoming, shedding, being reborn each and every day.We are nature, strong and sensitive, deeply rooted to always find what feels good, what makes us flourish. There are days where shadows cloud our source, but it is in that inky darkness that we discover our light.Like wildflowers we ebb and flow with the tides of our existence, sprouting in the places we thought unknown.Under the sun and moon we grow, blossom, and shed. Welcoming the rebirth each and every day.

Cultivated for thousands of years, it is still possible to find roses in the wild, although most which get used commercially are grown by hand. Due to the popularity of this five-petal, oval-leaf, often-thorny flower, adulterations of its essential oils are prevalent. Be sure that if you’re using it for aromatherapy, you get the genuine article!

Zodiac Sign: Taurus

Planet: Venus

Element: Water

Energy: Feminine

When grown in the garden, roses prefer full sun and don’t like to be crowded. Water them every day that it doesn’t rain for the first two weeks after you plant them, then water them twice a week thereafter. They should be pruned in early Spring before the buds appear, down to about one-third. Neem oil spray can help with pests and fungus, and you should compost around the base of the plant in the Autumn!

Tribes all across the United States have historically used the rose in various different remedies, and with good reason! Parts of the rose have antiviral, antidepressant, antispasmodic, and various other ‘anti-’ properties that make it a powerful aid in detoxifying the body. It also serves as a digestive stimulant, increases bile production, does wonders for the blood and kidneys, and it even aids with menstrual regulation! The dried hips of the wild rose are also very high in vitamin C, and the Japanese rose has seen extensive use as a diuretic and laxative in Eastern medicine. This is to say nothing of its benefits in aromatherapy, soothing the heart and mind with its scent.

The rose is no slouch when it comes to magical applications, either! Roses are associated with Aphrodite, Adonis and Eros. Rosewater can be worn on clothes as a protective agent, and rose petals can be added to charms against the evil eye. White roses worn at weddings will bring happiness and security to the couple; roses are used traditionally in love spells, and are great in incense and potpourri! Thorns of the rose can be used to mark wax figures for sympathetic magic. Rose hips can be carried for general good luck or strung like beads for luck in love, and can also be used as offerings to encourage friendly spirits to take up residence in a place.

Though the meanings of different kinds and colors of rose can vary, in flower language, they all generally communicate strong feelings of love and passion. The white rose is also a symbol of purity and chastity!
