Uses for RosesUses for Roses

Hello everybody! What do roses mean to you? To most people, they are a symbol of love. A way to show their pure unconditional love for someone else. But did you know that they can also be used for many other uses besides romance? No, I’m not kidding! These gorgeous flowers have a huge variety of uses including in bath and body products, hair care, skin care, and even medicinal purposes! Aren’t you curious? There are so many different uses out there that I’m sure as soon as you finish reading this, you’ll want to try most of these for yourself!

Roses are a part of the genus Rosa, within the family Roseceae. There are over 100 species in existence and countless hybrids! They are native to Africa, North America, and Europe, but mainly Asia. The rose is approximately 35 million years old, according to some fossil evidence found in Colorado. It is the National Floral Emblem of the United States and the national flower of England. It is also the state flower of New York, North Dakota, Georgia, Iowa, and the District of Columbia. Did you know that in ancient Egypt, roses were used as offerings to the goddess Isis because they were considered the most sacred flower? And in ancient Rome and Greece, they were associated with the goddess of love?

Many bath and body products can contain roses. There are many skin care benefits when using them in bath and body products. Rose oil has many anti-bacterial properties. It also helps to treat acne, soften skin, and hydrate and moisturize skin. It also helps to fight skin diseases, regenerate cells, restore skin texture, and fights inflammation. Rose oil has even been used to change skin pigmentation! When used for hair products, the antiseptic properties in rose water help to reduce dandruff and scalp inflammation. The oil also adds shine to the hair, prevents hair loss, promotes hair growth, and can improve blood circulation in the scalp. Rose water can even be used as a natural hair spray! For all the soapers and candle makers out there, rose petals make a beautiful natural decoration to your creations. And when used as an actual ingredient in soap, it is great for softening the skin.

There are countless medicinal benefits to roses as well! When rose oil is used in a compress, it helps to treat puffiness of the eyes, and also treats inflamed and tired eyes. When combined with Melissa oil, rose oil is awesome for treating herpes sores. The fruit that grows on rose plants, rose hips, is very high in vitamin C. The rose hips help to treat high blood pressure, lower cholesterol, chest pains, fevers, and they can even be used as a kidney tonic. Rose oil is also used to help with panic attacks. There is a rose tea that can be made that can help treat PMS, menopause symptoms, mastitis, and breast pain in women. Roses can also be used to stimulate the liver, improve circulation, and increase the appetite. Those are only a few of the many medicinal benefits from roses!

Scented Putty

scented-puttyScented Putty

Hey everybody! Are you looking for a new craft for the kiddos? Or maybe a new project that you can do with them for a creative way to spend time together? Or maybe even a fun thing that they can make with their friends? Well, how about our free recipe for our Scented Putty? What kid doesn’t love to play with putty? I know I did, we had it everywhere, all over the house! And what kid wouldn’t love to make their own? They can pick the colors, sizes, whatever they want! This recipe is sure to be a fantastic hit among them and their friends so you should definitely stick this on your future projects to try list!

Ingredients and Equipment Needed to Make Scented Putty

1 tablespoon of Corn Starch

½ teaspoon of Borax

2 tablespoons Distilled Water

1 tablespoons White School Glue

10 drops in FUN Soap Colorant (whatever color you want!)

10 drops Tropical Paradise Flavoring (or any other oil-based flavoring)

Disposable Pipette

Mixing Spoons

4 oz. PET Jar

White Dome Lid 58/400

2 plastic cups (or mixing bowls)

Measuring Spoons

1. In a plastic cup, mix 2 tablespoons of distilled water and 1/2 teaspoon of Borax together. Make sure to mix it well.

putty 1

2. In a separate cup add ½ teaspoon of this mixture along with 10 drops of Tropical Blast Flavoring and 10 drops of FUN Soap Colorant. (You can also use any of our body safe fragrances instead of the flavoring. However if you do choose to use fragrance, do not use the plastic cups. Make sure to use a mixing bowl because the fragrance will eat through the plastic cup.) Set aside the cup with the Borax mixture. You will not need it again unless you decide to make more than one!

putty 2

Add 1 tablespoon of school glue and 1 tablespoon of Corn Starch to your mixture. Mix it all together until it becomes too difficult to stir.

putty 3

Remove the mixture from the cup and place it on a piece of wax paper.

putty 4
Roll the putty all around in the palm of your hands.  It will slowly begin to take form.

putty 5

putty 6

 

When you are finished with your first ball, feel free to make as many more as you want using the rest of the Borax mixture. You will just need to repeat everything from step two including adding the flavoring, corn starch, and colorant. We made 7 putty balls with this awesome recipe, but we still had a little bit left over! So with using all of the Borax mixture, this should make at least about 13 putty balls!  To store the scented putty simply place it in a 4 oz. PET jar and tighten the lid.   Note:  Body Safe fragrance oils can be used for this scented putty recipe instead of flavorings, but if you use fragrance oils, you will need to be sure to mix your putty in a pet plastic container.  Fragrance oils can melt certain plastics. 

Are you just totally intrigued? I’m sure the kiddos are, they will be so excited to make these Scented Putty balls that they will want to start as soon as possible! Are you looking for an awesome craft for the kids to do at a party? Well this is it! This wonderful putty is guaranteed to be a definite favorite, and they will want to make them over and over again. Come on, get started on these as soon as possible! Keep watching for more Enlightened by Layla! Are you looking for even more crafting fun?
