It takes at least 30 full roses to make a small drop of Rose essential oil, which is worth remembering when using this precious oil.
When we use 3 drops in our massage oil it amounts to 90 roses, Rose should therefore be used very sparingly; but this should not stop you from fully enjoying this beautiful oil. Just opening the bottle and smelling it each day is enough to give you a boost, and to instantly connect you with mother nature. Just close your eyes and take three long soft breaths with the bottle under the nose, relax and enjoy the magic of the Rose.
One drop of Rose diluted in a tablespoon of Apricot Kernel or Avocado Oil is a wonderful way to give your face, neck, and chest a deep massage. For mature skin, Rose is a fountain of youth, especially when blended with a drop of Frankincense - it softens wrinkles, calms inflammation and thread veins, and generally beautifies the skin. Rose is also a very useful resource for eczema as it reduces inflammation.
In addition to being an effective antidepressant by stimulating positive emotions, Rose is a wonderful oil for all hormonal issues including PMT, effects of the menopause, and traditionally used to increase fertility in both men and women.
