Whether you just started a blossoming romance with oils or have deep roots, you should know that Rose oil is the crown jewel of the bunch! This breathtaking floral oil is the height of class and sophistication. Our Rose essential oil is made from the petals of Rosa damascena, which is where the common name of damask rose stems from. Rose essential oil is extracted from the pressed petals of these fabulous flowers—it takes 22 pounds of petals to make just one 5 ml bottle of Rose! Talk about fancy!

This painstaking process means every drop of Rose essential oil is truly precious. As such, it isn’t for every day, but it can be used to add splendor to an ordinary day or make an extraordinary day unforgettable.

What are the benefits of Rose oil?

You’ll want to run for the roses when you discover the benefits of this oil! Rose oil supports the appearance of youthful, healthy-looking skin, which is why it’s so bloomin’ popular in skin care products! Another effect of Rose oil is that it has a balancing aroma that can be used to help create a luxurious atmosphere. It’s also a floral delight when you add it to a carrier oil during massages!

Relax with Rose

After a long, hard day, a little treat can go a long way! But instead of reaching for a sugary snack, add a little sweetness to your evening by adding a few drops of Rose oil to a bath. Give yourself the royal treatment with this luxurious recipe:

In a small glass, combine 1 ounce of V-6™ or other carrier oil of your choice, 1 drop of Rose essential oil, 3 drops of Lavender essential oil, and 3 drops of Frankincense essential oil. Pour the mix into warm bathwater and feel like royalty as you enjoy the benefits of Rose oil.
