The scent of roses is so coveted; it is used in bubble baths, bath oils, and perfumes. Roses are the most popular flower to send to a loved one, and nothing says, "I love you" like a big bouquet of a dozen or more highly scented red roses. Most people imagine the classic look of the red or yellow rose when they think of roses, but did you know there are over 100 species of the rose? Components of roses, such as rose hips, have natural medicinal properties that are used for Vitamin C, and also for some cosmetics. There are entire gardens devoted to growing roses and enjoying them, and every year in California, people celebrate the Tournament of Roses with floats adorned with the beautiful flower. Scientists have traced the first rose back to 35 million years ago. Roses are great options for gardeners because they are easy to grow and durable flowers. Roses are popular wedding cake decorations, corsage flowers, and when pressed, make sweet mementos. Every Valentine’s Day, florists have to work overtime to send out all those requests for roses. It’s estimated that over 200 million roses are sold every year on Valentine’s Day. Though roses shine on February 14, they are used year round in bouquets and for special occasions. From sweetheart roses to miniature roses and long stemmed roses, there is a type of rose for every flower lover. Unusual roses like mixed color roses or roses that look like they have designs on the petals are popular, but nothing says love like the classic, long stemmed red rose. Supposedly, putting the petals into your bath will make your skin soft and sweet scented.
