Roses have been used as medicinal plants since antiquity, and are celebrated for their calming, uplifting aroma. The oil has a toning, anti-inflammatory, and rejuvenating effect, and its mild detoxifying and antiseptic properties can relive pain and nausea.

What’s it good for?

  • Rejuvenates Skin  Rose oil supports cell and tissue regeneration which helps to maintain the skin’s elasticity and reduce the appearance of fine lines. It makes an excellent choice for minimizing the appearance of broken capillaries on the skin.
  • Heals Skin  The oil helps to repair sun-damaged skin and damage from burns and scalds, as well as reduce the appearance of stretch marks. Its skin-calming and anti-inflammatory properties can soothe dry, hot, itchy skin.
  • Fights Bacteria  Rose oil has been shown to have antimicrobial properties. In one study, Damask rose demonstrated antibacterial activity against 15 strains of bacteria
  • Enhances Wellbeing  The oil creates a sense of relaxed wellbeing and can help to increase feelings of vitality. This calming property makes it useful for taking the edge off stress-related conditions.
  • Supports Women’s Conditions  Rose oil has a toning effect on the uterus, which can help to ease heavy, clotted or painful periods. It is also used to limit the effects of, and provide relief from, premenstrual tension.
  • Relieves Digestive Discomfort  A mild detoxifying and antiseptic effect, combined with nerve-soothing properties, help relive tummy upsets, nausea, and constipation. The oil has a fortifying effect on the gallbladder and liver, supporting efficient digestion and absorption of minerals.

Best uses

  • As a skin toner  Make a toner by combining 2 tablespoons witch-hazel and 4 tablespoons rose flower water with 4 drops of rose absolute oil. Put in a plain bottle or spray bottle and use as needed. Shake well before use.
  • As a massage oil  Rose can relive feelings of depression, anxiety, and grief. Blend 4 drops of rose, 4 drops of geranium, and 4 drops of orange essential oils with 2 tablespoons base oil for an uplifting body massage

Blends well with: Bergamot, chamomile, clary sage, geranium, jasmine, lavender or patchouli
