Roses are used traditionally in love spells. It is great in incense and potpourri. Thorns can be used to mark wax figures. Rose petals can be added to charms against the evil eye. The Latin term Sub rosa, or “beneath the rose” references secrecy. A rose hung from a ceiling indicates that anything that takes place beneath it should be held in the utmost confidence. In Greek lore, Aphrodite gave the rose to Eros, who gave it to Harpocrates, the God of Silence, symbolizing the necessity for secrecy in certain amorous affairs- we don’t kiss and tell.
