There's a scientific reason why roses symbolise love. Rose works on improving the action of the heart. It also opens up the anahata - the heart chakra - in increasing patience, compassion and love. For those ladies suffering from menstrual cramps and PMS, rose can be a useful pain reliever. It also works on the nerves by helping relieve depression and reduce anxiety. What's more, it works to increase sexual desires and fertility. Love is in the air.....I can feel it.
