"My friend got me this rose water and I guess you can use it on your face and body but I put it in berries and it makes the most amazing dessert," Gwyneth told fans as she gave them a tour inside her kitchen cupboard.

Her Pure Essentials rose water is described as being used as a toner and cleanser for the skin, moisturiser for the hair, and even to soothe insect bites and sunburn.

The actress took to her wellness website Goop to share how she underwent "some tests done that showed really high levels of inflammation in my body" in January 2021, and it forced her to focus on a different approach to healing.

"I've been cooking a lot, and some of it is really delicious: I made scallops with crispy capers and sage the other day, asparagus with bacon vinaigrette, and some little artichokes with stuffed herbs and garlic," she shared.

"I've even found a great sugar-free kimchi (Madge's vegan daikon kimchi—it's amazing) and a sugar-free kombucha, and I've been using lots of coconut aminos in my recipes."

The health fanatic added that she now feels like her actions are "a gift to my body," and that she finally has "energy."

"I'm working out in the mornings, and I'm doing an infrared sauna as often as I can, all in service of healing," Gwyneth added.
