Roses are surely one of the most adored flowers of all time. A symbol of love and of beauty, prized both for its good looks and as well as its intoxicating fragrance. But the precious rose is more than just a pretty face. Distillation of rose petals creates two valuable ingredients - Rose Absolute Oil and Rosewater.
Both ingredients are relied on in the world of skincare and aromatherapy (find them in our LOVE blend). Here are just three of the things that these treasures can do for us...
1. Feel contented One wonderful benefit of rose essential oil is that it can help relieve anxiety and stress, leaving you feeling positive and renewed. In one piece of research it has shown that people who apply rose oil to their skin felt more relaxed and calm. Another found that going to sleep in a bedroom smelling of roses helped people to have more pleasant dreams and wake up feeling positive. How good does that sound?
2. Make your skin bloom Rose oil is an anti-inflammatory agent and tissue regenerator loaded with therapeutic benefits for the skin, making it fab at smoothing and reducing the signs of ageing. It also has astringent effects on the capillaries, so reduces redness and calms the skin. The relaxing aroma is also helpful at reducing stress levels and help us prepare for a good night of rejuvenating sleep (which is the ultimate beauty treatment of course).
3. Boost your libido Looking for a natural aphrodisiac? Because it acts as an anti-anxiety agent, rose essential oil can help men with sexual dysfunction related to performance anxiety and stress. It has also been reported that it can help balance sex hormones, which can contribute to increased sex drive.
