‘Whatever the species, Rose is perfection personified. It’s the ultimate female - one who can give unconditional love..’

The Fragrant Mind: Aromatherapy for Personality, Mind, Mood and Emotion by Valerie Ann Worwood

Happy Venus Day 🌹

Those who know me can testify to my obsession with roses. I love roses in every colour, form and manifestation - my favourite herbal tea is rose! I suppose my appreciation for this glorious flower has been inspired by my father, whose pride and joy is maintaining the rose bushes at the family farm. 

Whenever I have the time, I make my way to Columbia Road on Sundays to top up. Feeling a sense of balance, calm, even completeness in my personal space necessitates the presence of roses, even if it were a single and solitary stem.. and in the worst possible scenario: through a room fragrance or an incense.

It comes as no surprise that the rose is one of the main components of our apothecary line. Having said that, I am mindful that people may have a certain exception or idea of how our apothecary line may smell. So, let me put your mind at ease and say, our take and interpretation is exciting and certainly out of the box!
