No flower says romance quite the way a rose does. Rose bushes come in any number of shapes and sizes, from sprawling groundcovers to lanky climbers, but it’s the flowers that fire the imagination. Whether you prefer the simplicity of open blooms or the intricate beauty of ruffled or frilled petals, there’s a rose for you. (And in pretty much any color other than blue, too!) Here’s how to bring the scent and sentiment of one of nature’s most beautiful creations into your home.

 

Bath salts made using rose petals

Bath Soak

For a sweet soak, make your own rose bath salts. Mix 1/2 cup Epsom salt, 1/2 cup sea salt, 1 tablespoon dried rose petals, and 2 drops of fragrance (optional). Add to warm bath water.

Sweet Treats

Make candied flowers for cakes. Brush rose petals (only those that are pesticide free) with egg whites, then dip in super-fine sugar. Dry overnight on wire racks before using.
