Like the flower from which it is distilled, the rich aroma of rose essential oil inspires love, confidence and passion.
What It’s For
The strong, pungent aroma of rose encourages feelings of self-confidence and happiness. When diffused, it can create an inspiring atmosphere with its uplifting floral scent. When applied topically to the skin, rose is very nourishing and balancing. For this reason, we find rose essential oil in man skincare products.
Rose opens the heart chakra, which helps to release fears associated with intimacy, trust and possessiveness, as well as encourage confidence and self love. Many people experience an aphrodisiac effect from rose, making it ideal for the bedroom.
Citronellol is the primary constituent of rose. This constituent imparts cleansing and purification properties and can also help reduce inflammation and irritation, which is why rose is so therapeutic to skin.
Who Should Use Rose Essential Oil
Because it takes 22 pounds of delicate petals to produce one small 5 mL bottle of rose, it is one of the most costly and prized essential oils available. If you are fortunate enough to own a bottle, remember that a little bit goes a long way. The oil is thick and viscous with a very potent aroma. For most applications, a single drop is all you need. Use rose when you need a boost of confidence or encouragement and to encourage feelings of love and intimacy. Add rose into your regular skincare routine for rejuvenation and anti-aging benefits.
Don’t Have Rose Essential Oil?
If you aren’t able to splurge for a bottle of rose, you can enjoy the benefits in Rose Ointment, or try geranium for similar effects at a fraction of the cost.
