It’s Rose Month, and to celebrate one of planet Earth’s most beautiful colors, plants, and aromas, we’ve put together this amazing National Rose Month Gift Guide list of the best rose-themed and infused beauty, spa, and accessory products on the market!
The scent of roses has long been known to lift one’s mood, ease depression, and create positive feelings. The color also carries meaning in color psychology, with pink representing safety, hope, and calm. Studies have shown that certain shades of pink can calm and reassure us, reducing feelings of anger and aggression, as well and increasing endorphins and creativity. So let’s play, get creative, and treat yourself with some delightful finds inspired by Mother Nature herself!
