Benefits of Rose Oil

Skin Care

Rose oil has earned its place as a beloved botanical for both face and body, and is at the core of some of our most well-loved formulations. Let’s explore the wonders of rose essential oil and its benefits as an herbal remedy that will bring an ancient luxury to your self-care rituals, promote radiant skin and support heart-opening emotional balance.

History of Rose Essential Oil

Rose essential oil has been cherished and enjoyed for centuries. In ancient Egypt holistic practitioners understood that the rose held both the key to natural radiance and a deeper connection to the divine. 

Cleopatra, renowned for her beauty and wisdom, is said to have incorporated rose oil into her cosmetics, perfumes, and even sacred ceremonies. The ancient Romans used rose oil for their baths and as a massage oil, while it became a staple in perfumes and beauty products across Europe in the Middle Ages. 

How is Rose Essential Oil Produced?

Rose essential oil is extracted through steam distillation. The journey begins at dawn, when the roses are picked by hand, as the concentration of oil in the precious Rosa Damascena petals is highest in the early hours of the day.

The petals are then steamed, with the resulting vapor is condensed to collect this precious essential oil. It takes approximately 8,818 pounds of rose petals to produce just over 2 pounds of this precious ingredient. 

The Surprising Benefits of Rose Essential Oil

Rose oil is especially beneficial for aging, dehydrated, and damaged skin. The oil’s incredibly nourishing properties aid in rejuvenating and hydrating the skin, improving its elasticity and reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while a bounty of antioxidant support aids in the renewal of depleted skin cells.

This exquisite oil is also well suited for those with overactive, acne-prone or oily skin; rose's balanced composition helps skin find its equilibrium.

Packed with soothing and cleansing properties, it helps combat potential contaminations and simultaneously calming redness and irritation of reactive skin. 

The deep emotional and therapeutic benefits of rose are quite remarkable. Research underscores this precious aromatic oil’s ability to stimulate the release of dopamine, the "feel-good" neurotransmitter pivotal for our sense of well-being. 

Each drop of rose oil is a precious gift. Rose is a natural balm that can help dissolve a sense of unease or stress– a beautiful reminder that nature offers remedies to soothe both body and soul. 

Are There Any Known Side Effects?

While rose essential oil boasts incredible benefits, there are also potential side effects to be aware of when using rose oil at home. When undiluted, you may experience skin irritation —so please take this as a gentle reminder to always perform a patch test before using undiluted or diluted rose oil on the skin at home.

Rose Oil in Aromatherapy

Unsurprisingly, rose oil is prized in aromatherapy practice. When used in a diffuser, the effects of rose essential oil promote relaxation, dissolve stress and create a soothing atmosphere. 

Any time you diffuse rose essential oil, it’s an invitation to pause, an opportunity to inhale deeply and be enveloped by the nurturing comfort and heart opening care of this precious fragrant essence.

Safety Tips

When using pure rose essential oil, remember that a little goes a long way. Like many essential oils, it is highly concentrated, so a few drops are sufficient. Dilute with a small amount of carrier oil before applying it directly to the skin to avoid irritation.

What is the Difference Between Rose Oil and Rosehip Seed Oil?

These fantastic herbal remedies— Rose oil and Rosehip seed oil—are often confused. 

Rose oil is extracted from the petals of the rose flower and is prized for its aroma and therapeutic properties. Rosehip seed oil is extracted from fruit of the rose plant, rather than the petals, and is so loved for its nourishing and rejuvenating effects on the skin.

How to Use Rose Essential Oil for the Skin?

Rose oil mixed with a few drops in a carrier oil can be applied directly to the skin. Use it as a massage oil, add it to your skin care routine, or diffuse it for emotional well-being.

Diluted rose oil is also a versatile addition to skin care routines. Rose oil mixed  with a carrier oil like sweet almond or rosehip seed oil, it can be applied to the face and body. Its gentle nature makes it suitable for all complexions, including sensitive skin types. 

Whether it's soothing inflamed skin, lifting your spirits, or simply adding a touch of luxury to your day, pure essence of  rose is truly one of nature’s sweetest gifts.
