Ingredients: 100% Pure Bulgarian Rose Essential Oil.
Our essential Rose oil is very gentle and well suited for aromatherapy, direct application on the skin (with the exception of the soft tissue surrounding the eyes; for this, rose-water is preferable), as well as dilution in massage oil or a bath. Rose oil blends well with many high-quality oils including Jojoba, Lavender, Neroli, Jasmine, Sandalwood, Ylang-Ylang, and many others.
As a skin ointment, Rose oil softens and improves tone and texture, and has been used to successfully treat herpes lesions. Medical astrology places the skin under rulership of Venus, the Roman goddess of love, beauty, sex, fertility and prosperity. Interestingly, the rose is the favorite and iconic flower of Venus, and the Greek Aphrodite before her, and was traditionally used foremost to address feminine issues such as depression from a broken relationship, sexuality, fertility, premenstrual syndrome (PMS), irregular menstruation, copious menstruation, post-natal depression, mild prolepses of the uterus, and menopause.
The essential oil of Rose was first distilled with modern techniques in the 10th century by the Arabic physician Avicenna, who documented its many healing properties in The Book of Healing at the peak of the Islamic Golden Age. This distillation process of Rose oil spread throughout Europe during the Middle Ages and its alchemical, medical use was popularized in the 16th century by the Swiss physician and alchemist Paracelsus, of whom Carl Jung wrote, “we see in Paracelsus not only a pioneer in the domains of chemical medicine, but also in those of an empirical psychological healing science.”
In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) the rose is reputed to have a cooling, moisturizing and soothing quality, while the oil is believed to restore the general balance and harmony of the body, stimulate and regulate the heart and circulatory system, boost concentration and uplift the spirit. Similarly, in Ayurvedic medicine the damask rose, or Satapatri in Sanskrit, is used to open and balance the heart chakra, cleanse the liver, kidneys and spleen, treat depression, mental exhaustion and anxiety.
