How to preserve a rose?

Our preserved luxury roses are 100% real flowers

Explore here how a rose is preserved. Eternal Roses are not made from silk or any other material, and even though they may look fake from afar, you’ll notice the difference close up.

To properly preserve these fresh flowers, it’s critical that the luxury roses are cut when they are at their most beautiful. The flowers are then put into a mixture of glycerin and other natural plant elements. This re-hydrates the rose from its petals to its stem and replaces the sap within it. 

After a few days, the process is complete and you have preserved luxury roses that are flexible and look natural. This is how we preserve roses forever. To obtain the many varied colors you see available, a dying process takes place shortly after the preservation is complete. And thus magnificent roses evolve from the process.

How are preserved fresh flowers different from dried flowers?

The process of preserving roses is vastly different from drying them. When you dry a flower, it’s typically hung upside down for several days to dehydrate the bloom and stem. After a few days or weeks, the roses will be dried. The result is a bouquet that’s brittle, lacks its vibrant color, and is easily breakable.

When it comes to how long dried or preserved roses last, the difference can be astounding. Because air dried flowers have been dehydrated, they are not long lasting and can break or lose petals rather easily. If they’re kept in a safe place, they can last for several months, but if they are accidentally bumped or moved, you’ll have more of a mess than a bouquet.

Preserved roses, on the other hand, can be enjoyed for a much longer period of time. Placed in a vase or on a shelf, you can expect your preserved luxury roses to last one to three years. If you decide to store your flowers in a sealed enclosure, they’ll last even longer — up to 3 years! 

And you can use your preserved luxury roses for more than sitting in a vase. They’re perfect for home décor, floral art, and other craft projects that incorporate flowers and floral arrangements.
