June is National Rose Month! The rose with its classic elegance is all about popularity. The rose ranks as 85% of people’s favorite flower and is the most given flower on Valentine’s Day. We love the rose so much that in 1986, it was declared the United States’ national flower.
Color Me Rose
The rose is all about variety as well, coming in a variety of hues. Each color symbolizes a different meaning or feeling. Below are a few of the popular colors with their meanings:
Red: Love, beauty, courage, respect
White: Purity, innocence, youthfulness, heavenly
Pink: Appreciation, gratitude, grace, admiration
Yellow: Friendship, joy, gladness, delight
Pass the Rose Please
Roses are not just beautiful to look at but also provide benefits for your health. Rose petals can help cure a sore throat or a runny nose. They may also aid in digestion. Rose hips are full of vitamins A, B3, C, D, and E as well as antioxidants. Many health food stores carry rose hip tea that can aid in the healing of infections.
