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.

Rose for the Mother, Mandarin for the Child, Frankincense for the Father…….
