Homemade Rose Water Recipe: Anti-Inflammatory, Anti-Aging, Anti-CancerWhat IS Rose Water?

Rose water is made from the Rosaceae plant, which originates in the Middle East and Mediterranean. It grows as a shrub that can reach over 6 feet tall! While you’re probably familiar with roses as just a fragrant addition to gardens, they actually have an impressive list of health benefits.

Health Benefits of Rose Water



Rose water is full of flavonoids, which is a group of nutrients with notable anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory properties (which, together, mean cancer-fighting!). It’s also known that the nutritional value of flavonoids can be compromised when you cook food with heat. That’s why rose water (which is made at room temperature) is able to preserve the full health benefits of the plant it’s derived from.

Healthy Liver, and More

Rose water is also a great source of anthocyanins. This is a chemical compound that’s known to fight free radicals in the body, as well as promote liver health, lower blood pressure, and improve eyesight! It’s another contributor to rose water’s cancer fighting ability, since it can prevent cell mutations resulting from poorly cooked food.

Strong Bodies

Zinc is an important nutrient for maintaining a strong immune system. If you’re not getting enough in your diet, you’re exposing your body to numerous health threats. You also need zinc for healthy skin which heals quickly and completely.

  • Relieves pain (rose water, not rose oil)  
  • Fights bacterial infections
  • Treats inflammation Treats coughing and sore throat
  • Treats anxiety and dementia, as in Alzheimer’s disease
  • Treats headaches
  • Treats skin conditions

Along with these awesome health benefits, there is research that suggest rose water can be used to shorten epileptic seizures, as well as lower blood sugar levels after a meal. However, this research has so far been limited to rat studies, so further investigation is needed.

How to Use Rose Water

Of course you can simply drink a glass of rose water, but you don’t have to limit yourself to that. There are lots of ways you can add it to your food, and this healthy chia pudding is a perfect example!
