Are we feeling infused with love yet? Good! Because we couldn't think of a more perfect botanical to highlight this month of St Valentine than the 'Queen of Flowers' and universal symbol of love herself, the delectable Rose.
Rose, THE flower of love has been cultivated for over 3,000 years and with good cause. She's a potent aphrodisiac and the early Romans knew that sipping on a cupful of infused rose petals calms the heart, enhances positive emotions and in modern day terms, helps get your freaky on. In fact, drinking rose tea is an excellent remedy for female infertility and gents, just in case you thought these romantic petals were reserved for the ladies, think again - they also help with erectile dysfunction. Yup, this flower of luuurve ain't messin' around.
