Today is Rose Day, the first day of Valentine’s week (who knew?), which apparently goes something like this…Rose Day, Propose Day, Chocolate Day, Teddy Day, Promise Day, Hug Day, Kiss Day and then yep, Valentine’s Day.

Busy week, and personally I think I’d prefer things in a slightly different order, but anyway back to roses…

Rose is a natural aphrodisiac and (like chocolate) contains phenylethylamine, also called the ‘love drug’. Produced in brains of the seriously loved-up, this chemical is responsible for that head-over-heels feeling.

So, in celebration of Rose Day (and assuming you get through all the hugging, kissing and promising), here’s some rose-inspired pampering to get you in the mood.
