Lovely to read this Malina.
I keep a jar of dried rose petals in my tea cupboard, and add a pinch to my daily brews when feeling the need for some love. Only a little is needed (for my taste anyway), as rose can make the whole pot too astringent. Adding a little pinch of rose turns the brew into a sort of “Hug in a Mug”. Same with sprinkling the petals, dried or fresh, on top of chocolate sweets and desserts. Soacking them into my senses makes me mentally step back from whatever I am doing or thinking, and be a little kinder to myself.
