The Durability of Preserved Roses: Eternal Beauty in a Fleeting World

Preserved roses, also known as everlasting roses or stabilized roses, have been gaining popularity in recent years. A unique and long-lasting alternative to fresh flowers, preserved roses are natural flowers that have undergone a special preservation process that gives them unique qualities.

This process involves replacing their natural sap with a solution based on 100% natural ingredients. This solution penetrates the rose and gradually replaces the flower's natural moisture, thus preserving its original appearance for eternity.

But... How long does a preserved rose last?

One of the main advantages of preserved roses is their extraordinary durability compared to fresh roses. While fresh roses last a week to ten days before wilting, on average, preserved roses can maintain their beauty for years if properly cared for.

The durability of a preserved rose depends on several factors, including the quality of the flower, the preservation process used and the environmental conditions in which it is kept. Although preserved roses require much less care than fresh roses, following a few simple tips can help prolong their lifespan to the maximum:

  1. Avoid humidity: Preserved roses are sensitive to moisture, so it is important to keep them in a dry place and avoid exposing them to excessive humidity.

  2. Avoid direct sunlight: Direct sunlight can fade the color of preserved roses over time. Try to place them in a location where indirect sunlight will reach them.

  3. Handle carefully: Handle your everlasting rose carefully to avoid damaging the petals or stem. Avoid bending or crushing the flowers, as this can affect their appearance.

  4. Clean it from time to time: To remove accumulated dust, you can gently clean your everlasting rose with a soft feather duster or air gun.

  5. Avoid sudden changes in temperature: Sudden changes in ambient temperature can affect the durability of preserved roses. Keep the flowers in an environment with a stable and moderate temperature.

By following these simple tips, you can enjoy the beauty of your preserved roses for a long time. In this post of our blog you will find more information about how to take the best care of your everlasting rose.
