Ever wondered why roses are such common ingredients in skincare products? They have a high vitamin C content, which gives you radiant skin, said Ms Chan.
Their calming effect also makes them a popular choice among women to relieve stress.
In TCM, the slightly warm nature of roses means they work on the liver system and improve circulation – much like peonies, but with a more pronounced effect.
For that reason, pregnant women and those who get heavy periods are advised against drinking rose tea.
