Rose Essential Oil is more than just a pretty, floral scent. It has several therapeutic properties that makes it amazing in skincare products.
Where does Rose EO come from?
Rose Absolute essential oil comes from a thorny bush that grows large pink flowers with many fragrant petals and is a part of the Rosaceae plant family. The essential oil is pulled from the flower head by steam distillation (separation process using steam) or solvent extraction (extraction of a substance from one liquid into another liquid phase).
Did that go over your head? Same here. Just know that Rose Essential Oil is pulled from the flower head of Rosaceae plants.
What are the benefits of Rose EO?
Rose Absolute has several therapeutic properties, including antidepressant, antiseptic, astringent, calmative and sedative. This transforms into several helpful benefits.
Stress & Anxiety Relief
Rose Essential Oil is known for its antidepressant agents. It helps boost confidence, mental health and fights depression!
Rose EO is a stomachic, which means that it has properties that assist digestion and soothe the stomach. Mix a few drops of Rose EO with a tablespoon of coconut oil and massage your stomach if you're suffering from a stomach ache or cramps. I know I'll be doing this the next time Aunt Flo comes!
Most acne occurs when there is an overproduction of sebum in a person's pores, but increased bacteria plays a huge part in the development of acne too. Luckily, Rose EO has several properties that will reduce acne, including astringent, antiviral as well as bactericidal. Don't pull out your dictionary. This just means that Rose EO promotes good bacteria in the body and tones the skin.
One of the most interesting properties of Rose EO to me is cicatrisation, which simply means that this oil has healing power for scars, acne marks, stretch marks and more! The antiseptic properties in Rose EO also aid in healing scars and wounds.
