Making Rosewater

Wow do I love this tip I received through my Ayurvedic studies. Rose water does not just make use of wilted flowers but it enhances your health and well being. You can use rose petals from a bouquet given to you from a loved one or roses from your garden or even wild roses. How does rose water benefit your health and wellbeing? Rosewater……

  • Hydrates the skin
  • Is amazingly refreshing
  • Contains antioxidants
  • Works as an energy and mood enhancer
  • Soothes skin irritations

Tired, puffy eyes? Soak cotton pads in rose water and place gently on eyelids.

Carry a mister with you and refresh your skin and hair frequently.

Here is the recipe:

Place rinsed petals from 8-12 roses in a deep pot and cover with distilled water (only cover to the top of the petals so you don’t weaken the rose water too much). Bring to a gentle simmer over medium high heat for 20 minutes, reduce heat and continue to simmer until all petals are a soft pink or white. Cool and drain through a colander, then discard the petals. Cool the rose water and place in glass jars, keeping it in the fridge until you are ready to use. Enjoy this ancient remedy!

JOIN US FOR YOGA FOR LIFE – ZOOM STYLE!!

The world has changed dramatically over the past year and several months.  We all learned to adjust to new ways to keep creating our lives and being the best we can be.  One of the beautiful ways we had discovered to stay connected with family and friends and keep our work lives going, was through ZOOM, virtual learning and visiting.  Yoga For Life has whole-heartedly embraced the virtual method and new and experienced yogis have created sacred spaces in their own homes, loving the ability to continue their yoga practice as well as stay in touch with the community.  I’m so blessed and honoured to be able to provide this and excited to report that we have decided to continue this method of practicing our yoga together! 

Join us for ZOOM Yoga For Life practices from anywhere in the world!!

When:  Monday, Wednesday and Friday mornings 10-11 a.m. PST and Wednesday evenings 6-7 p.m.  NOTE: For the summer classes July through mid to end September, we will be able to meet in person on Tuesday evenings 6-7 p.m. for outdoor yoga at our home on the yoga terrace! 

Cost:  $12 per class, payable via e-transfer to creativespaceyoga8@gmail.com.  Punch cards are available in a 10 pack or 20 pack i.e. $120 for 10 classes and $240 for 20. The “punch cards” never expire and they are kept track of in a drop-in basis so you are not committed to any one class time.

This is an all levels practice, with plenty of ways to learn new yoga for newcomers and also opportunities to challenge yourselves for experienced yogis.  We have fun – we learn – we gain strength and flexibility – we make friends.  WE JUST FEEL SO GOOD!!  Please email me at creativespaceyoga8@gmail.com for more info.  Blessings and Namaste.
