Magical Uses: Roses have long been used in love mixtures, owing to the flowers associations with the emotions. A chaplet of roses worn when performing love spells, or a single rose in a vase on the altar, are powerful love-magic aids. Rose water distilled from petals is added to love baths. Rose hips are strung and worn as love attracting beads. Rose petals and hips are also used in healing spells and mixtures, and a rosewater saturated cloth laid to the temples will relieve headache pain.
