Description

Rose absolute is distilled by enfleurage or solvent extraction and is taken from the petals of the flowers of the Bulgarian rose. The chemical make up of rose oil is extremely complex, with over 300 known components. Rose Absolute is strong in its aphrodisiac, sedative and bactericidal properties.

Known as the Queen of oils, Rose is expensive but only a small amount is needed. Traces of rose extracts have been found in several tombs from around 2000 BC. Rose is especially helpful where an emotional disturbance is linked to female sexuality. It carries with it distinct feminine qualities. It has a powerful effect on the uterus, as it helps to cleanse, purify, and regulate and may help with uterine muscle tone. It can be used to regulate the menstrual cycle and help to reduce excess loss.

Rose has long been known as an aphrodisiac, the Romans used to scatter rose petals on the bridal bed, and this custom has degenerated into paper rose petals at weddings. It is also a very good skin care oil, especially valuable for dry, sensitive or aging skin. On an emotional level, Rose is a gentle antidepressant and may help with post-natal depression or the depression that may follow the break up of a relationship. It is also good for skincare (cell re generator), most especially for dry, sensitive or aging skins. It is a natural astringent and has antiseptic properties. Very little of this oil is needed to benefit from its qualities.
