Bella Bathrooms: Soak Away Your Troubles with Rose Petals

When it comes to the art of relaxation, the story goes that Cleopatra, renowned for her beauty, understood the calming benefits of rose petals, using rose water for many different aspects of her bathing regimen. We asked the experts from Bella Bathrooms to indulge us with a few modern day tips and tricks for the ultimate bath experience!

Not to be outdone by Cleopatra (the ultimate beauty), today we still use rose water and its multifaceted benefits in our spa rituals. Rose water is believed to help prevent ageing by reducing wrinkles and tightening skin pores. Dry skin can also be hydrated by using rose water as a moisturizer. Rose water is created from rose oil by distilling fresh rose petals. Rose water cleanses the skin, removing dirt, oil and other pollutants from deep inside the skin pores. Amazingly, it can be used on any skin type without causing much irritation. Tip: The secret of making your own rose water is to pour distilled water in a glass jar. Add fresh rose petals and position the jar so that it has several days of sunshine. Aside from its calming effects, rose water has wonderful mood enhancing properties. Whether you want to relieve tension or if you’re feeling out of sorts, adding rose petals to a warm bath will create a luxurious, soothing effect. Best of all, it will also help you sleep better, helping you to wake up invigorated, feeling stronger to take on the world. If you want to relax even further, try a calming rose petal face mask made from rose petals soaked in 3 to 4 tablespoons of water for two to three hours. Mash the petals into the water, add 3 tablespoons of honey and mix well before applying to your face. Leave on for 15-30 minutes and then rinse with cool water. For the ultimate bathing experience, Bella Bathrooms offers everything you’ll need to create a Zen-like bathroom retreat. From a range of fixures and accessories, tiles, flooring and more, Bella Bathrooms will ensure that your dream bathroom can easily become a reality.
