Rose Essential Oil
True, unadulterated, and pure rose essential oil (Rosa damascena). The high cost of extracting rose oil through the steam distillation of its petals s a very expensive process which make rose oil a premium essential oil. (It takes 12,000 petals to produce one single 5ml bottle of rose oil) Despite these obstacles it’s a much loved oil, both for its aroma and its benefits. Its true aroma is rich, floral and sensual.

NOTE: The aroma is very strong and quite potent. Use diluted. As little as 1 drop in several tablespoon still imparts a strong aroma; a minimum ratio is generally 1:3 rose to carrier oil. Use with caution during pregnancy. Always test for skin sensitivity prior to widespread use and use on the feet when possible. Excessive use of any oil can lead to skin sensitization. Keep out of eyes, ears, or nose.
Facial Serum: Mix 1 drop Rose, 2 drops each Myrrh and Frankincense essential oils with 1 oz of carrier oil. Apply nightly after cleansing. Apply one to to face, neck, and décolletage. Follow with the moisturizer of your choice.
