Rose petals are indeed edible, but you should only eat them if they have not been sprayed with anything nasty (pesticides and such) so do not use roses from a florist because they have almost certainly been sprayed with chemicals (and anyway, most commercially grown roses aren't very aromatic). Just use and depend on Herbies Rose Petals.
