Today felt like a refreshing autumn day despite it being the middle of June. We spent the morning picking Asparagus at Berryland, then headed home. I noticed our rose bush had bloomed a surprising amount of blossoms this year. I collected a few skin care recipes I wanted to make with our roses. Utilizing the natural benefits of using plants from your garden to create a soothing skin remedy. Cole and I headed outside to pick a few that were starting to wilt. Cole loved the smell and said he didn’t want to wash his hands when we came inside because his hands smelled so good. I thought that was pretty cute. He’s a silly kid. 

Creating a Calming Skin Remedy Using Plants from Your Garden

The first recipe I wanted to make was a Rose Petal Aloe. I peeled a large aloe leaf, then removed the inner flesh. I then blended the aloe flesh with the rose petals and a few ground ivy flowers for added soothing anti-inflammatory benefits. I found the recipe I used today on The Nerdy Farm Wife blog. I used fresh aloe instead of aloe vera gel and added the ground ivy and rose petals from my garden. I love creating chemical-free skin care products.

Benefits of Ground Ivy in Your Homemade Skin Care Products

Ground ivy is a beautiful herb with many benefits for the skin. It is a natural remedy for inflammatory skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis. Helps boost collagen and elasticity and has skin-firming properties. Ground ivy has anti-inflammatory properties that can help reduce redness and swelling, making it an excellent choice for sensitive skin.

The herb has mild astringent properties that can help tighten and tone the skin, leaving it healthy and radiant. Ground ivy is a fantastic herb that can help improve your skin’s overall health and appearance.

Rose Petal Benefits for Skin Conditions

Rose petals have been used for centuries as a natural remedy for various skin conditions. They contain antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties to help soothe and heal irritated skin. Additionally, the natural oils in rose petals help keep moisture in and hydrate the skin, leaving it looking and feeling soft and supple. Whether used in a facial mask, toner, or bath soak, incorporating rose petals into your skincare routine can benefit your skin. 

Natural Benefits of the Aloe Plant

Using fresh aloe on your skin can have excellent natural benefits that will nourish and rejuvenate your skin. This superb plant has been used for centuries for its healing properties. Helpful in ministering skin conditions such as acne, eczema, and psoriasis. Also, aloe is a natural lotion that hydrates your skin and prevents dryness. Whether you want to improve the overall health and appearance of your skin or look for a natural way to treat specific skin concerns, fresh aloe vera is an excellent choice. So why not experience this superb plant’s natural benefits for yourself?

Combining these three ingredients will create a powerful and natural way to soothe and heal irritated skin. Together, these ingredients make a powerful and effective remedy perfect for anyone looking to soothe and heal their skin naturally and safely. I love utilizing the natural benefits of using plants. I can’t wait to use it to keep my skin subtle, calm, and less red and irritated. It will also be great to have on hand for cuts, scrapes, stings, irritations, and burns.

Natural Benefits of Using Plants from Your Garden

 I am not a doctor, and this isn’t medical advice. I’m simply someone who enjoys experimenting with natural remedies, utilizing the natural benefits of using plants from your garden, and sharing my experiences with others. It’s important to always consult with a healthcare professional before trying any new treatments or remedies, especially if you have a medical condition, are nursing, or are pregnant. I have found natural remedies incredibly helpful in managing my health concerns. I am sharing some of my personal experiences with others who may be curious about trying them out.
