History of roses

Roses were used to make an enormous variety of products from eye ointments to scented rosary beads, biscuits, and candies. Towns wives and rural peasants treasured roses. They moved gradually from utilitarian purposes to homeopathic medicine, perfume, and cookery, to being cultural symbols and objects of beauty. Now more than ever they are valued for their beauty and ease with which they grow. Empress Josephine is reported to have played a leading role in popularizing roses.
