Did you know there are only two regions on earth where the growing conditions are just right to cultivate rose essential oil? One is in Turkey, and the other is known as “Valley of the Roses” in Bulgaria. The area’s mild, but often humid, climate in late spring increases the amount of oil production because there is less evaporation on the petals than in hotter, drier temperatures. This moisture yields a fragrant, full-bodied crop of roses from which a rich and earthy oil is extracted. Once that process is complete, the result is a musky blend that’s ideal for aromatherapy, natural perfumery and a host of medicinal benefits.
These healing properties also support a healthy skincare regimen because rose essential oil contains antioxidants and astringents, both of which are known to help the complexion stay fresh, radiant and youthful. The antioxidants reduce the presence of acne, scars, stretch marks and other surface conditions, while the astringents target the skin’s cellular depth to lift and tone facial muscles for healthier aging. In addition, rose essential oils purify the bloodstream to remove toxins and correct hormone imbalances that cause rashes, breakouts, flakiness, dullness, or even chronic skin diseases like eczema and rosacea.
The floral scent of this essential oil has just a hint of spice which produces a calming effect on both the mind and body, making this ingredient the perfect addition to your self-care routine.
