The delicate petals of my roses are picked when in full bloom and full of delightful scent. Roses are well known to symbols of love and affection. They encourage feelings of contentment and compassion towards ourselves and others. The scent alone brings tender feelings of peace and calm. This extract adds delicious flavor to water or tea, its cooling and refreshing. I organically grow damask, tea and rugosa roses to make this extract. It is a pure pleasure to lovingly gather these delicate, soft and sweet petals with the warm sun on my back, bees buzzing nearby and bird song in the air. I believe all these elements enhance the product.
