Roses are revered for their aromatic and vibrant beauty. Yet, there’s more to roses than meets the eyes and nose. Roses and rose essential oil are often used in aromatherapy for their uplifting and mood-enhancing benefits. And, rose essential oil is often used in skin care products to help refine skin’s tone and texture, balance moisture, and address dry, sensitive, and more mature skin.
When using rose essential oil, we prefer using pure rose oil, Rose Otto (Latin: Rosa Damascena), that is extracted through a steam distillation process and without the use of chemical solvents. It takes tens of thousands of rose petals to obtain one ounce of rose oil, so while it’s a more costly essential oil, we enjoy working with the purest ingredients as possible when it comes to our skin care.
With this concentrated oil, a few drops in your bath or diluted in a carrier oil before applying to the skin is all you need. So, try to get in some luxurious home pampering this week with this coveted essential oil. It’s well-deserved.
Happy pampering and thank you for being kind to your body.
