Indian rose ( desi gulab )
The Indian rose or desi gulab, as it is commonly known, is the poster girl for sweet-smelling natural products. It is about 2-3 inches wide, unlike the sturdier-looking English rose varieties, and has a delicate and sweet smell. “Desi gulab is the original rose, which is why its beautiful aroma has a soothing effect on the body and the mind,” says Gita Ramesh, Co-founder of the Kairali Ayurvedic Group, and author of The Ayurvedic Cookbook, Delhi.

Used in making Ayurvedic medicines, cosmetics, potpourri, and desserts, the Indian rose is cool and mildly bitter-sweet. It has a good effect on your digestive system, and is also diuretic in nature. Rose tea, especially, heals stomach ailments and combats fatigue and lethargy. Even chomping on a desi gulab (the organic variety) helps relieve stress. Washing your face with rose-seeped water calms tired skin.
