Rose’s special gifts for you…

The ‘queen of oils’, the intensely sweet, floral and exotic scent of rose historically crowns this oil as one of the most popular scents throughout the world.  Rose is one of the most expensive essential oils to produce and purchase – it takes approximately 3 kilos of fresh rose petals to create 1ml – just 20 drops – of essential oil.  Consequently, rose essential oil is often adulterated or recreated synthetically –  be sure of your source! Treasured and used since ancient times, this precious oil is one of the most versatile, possessing invaluable therapeutic qualities that range from skin healing and beautifying, immune supporting, hormone balancing, anti-depressant, mood harmonising, and…. aphrodisiac, among so many other wonderful attributes.

Produced from the oleo resin that exudes from the wood of this small, tangle-branched tree, the pale amber, yellow to greenish tinted essential oil is renowned for its calming and “spiritual” connecting (earth to ‘heaven’ or inner sense of spirituality) and uplifting qualities (hence it’s use in many religious and ceremonial rites and rituals). This essential oil also possesses remarkable skin care and healing qualities, as well as ability to combat respiratory tract conditions and infections, among many other remarkable qualities.
