The ancient Romans valued it for its hangovers due to its cleansing & purging action.  Persian warriors adorned their shields with red roses and the conquering Turks introduced it to Bulgaria in the 17th century.  A symbol of love and purity, the petals were scattered at weddings to ensure a happy marriage.
