Gulkand is a traditional Ayurvedic preparation made from rose petals and sugar. The petals are mixed with sugar and left to infuse for several weeks, creating a fragrant and sweet preserve. It is believed to have cooling properties and is commonly used in India as a natural remedy for heat-related conditions such as heat stroke, acidity, and constipation. It is also considered to be a potent antioxidant and is believed to boost the immune system. Gulkand is often consumed on its own or added to drinks and desserts for flavor and health benefits.
