Rose Water Makes Life More Beautiful
Rose has long been regarded as a symbol of beauty. Since it was known that rose is the best for medicinal or aromatic use, many countries are producing rose goods industrially.
In Korea there is the Ryugyong Rose Processing Factory, which is mass-producing rose water by an industrial method. In general, rose water was used for cosmetics, but in recent years the range of its use is increasing.
On the bank of the Taedong River stands the Ryugyong Rose House, where you can take a bath using rose petals. The chief engineer of the house says, “Rose water is strong in germicidal power and efficacious in promoting the circulation of blood and metabolism. It also moisturizes, polishes and unwrinkles your skin, and helps maintain its elasticity. Its high germicidal power helps prevent dermatitis. Its effective ingredients like essential oil, protein and peptide help stabilize people mentally. So if it is sprayed in the air, it has a sedative effect.”
Visitors to the factory can hear the explanation about tea culture. The factory is producing rose tea, which is regarded as the best among many kinds of tea in the country. Its deep aroma and mild taste help even a depressed person feel calmed, so the tea is especially effective in relieving people of fatigue. It also contains a rich amount of anti-oxidization elements and vitamins C and E. If you drink it often, black specks and wrinkles on the face will disappear, and the skin gets elastic and glassy.
You’d better heat the cup first to preserve the heat of the tea long. Only then can you taste its true taste.
In addition, the factory set a plan of mass-producing natural rose-based refined salt. When roses are pickled with salt, they produce solution. In the sunlight the solution is evaporated leaving rose-colored salt. The analysis of the salt showed that it is a health substance rich in sugar along with main elements of the flower intact. This experience makes it possible for the factory to develop new products like rose sugar, rose cake and sweet rose jelly.
The manager of the factory says, “The rose perfumes every nook and corner of life, and it is just a fragrance of our bright and cultural life. We’ll develop and produce more and more varieties of rose products to make a contribution to the improvement of the people’s living standards.”
