Rose Absolute Essential Oil 5ml
Rose Absolute is extracted from the fresh blossoms of the prickly shrub Rosa damascena (also known as Damask Rose). The process first yields a waxy concrete, from which the absolute is extracted using a food-grade solvent like Hexane. The solvent is subsequently removed through a gentle heating process leaving behind the highly concentrated and viscous liquid known as an absolute.
The difficulty in obtaining this beautiful oil is reflected in the price. It takes a vast number of handpicked petals, which is harvested before sunrise to make just a kilo of oil.
Sweet, deep, rosy and very tenacious with honey undertones.
Rose absolute is effective on all levels whether its physical, mental, emotional or spiritual. It's comforting and nurturing properties act as a potent anti-depressant, soothing feeling of anger, fear and anxiety.
It is beneficial for all types of skin, but is especially useful for dry, sensitive and ageing complexions. It helps to soften, soothe, hydrate and rejuvenate the skin. It has a tonic, and astringent effect on the capillaries, and the circulation in general, which may help to reduce the redness associated with thread veins. Rose absolute is also known to be a good for treating gynaecological problems such as irregular periods and menstrual cramps.
For thousands of years, Roses have had an unparalleled association with love, beauty, indulgence, celebration, and spiritual worship. The privileged status of Roses in society has given rise to its well-deserved moniker as the world's 'Queen of Flowers'. The origin of the Rose species Rosa damascena remains somewhat of a mystery; some historians believe it lies in Damascus, Syria's capital and the oldest city is known as the 'Pearl of the East'. Others, however, believe its botanical roots lie in historic Persia (now Iran). In the 1600s, a merchant from Turkey is thought to have brought the wide-scale cultivation of Rosa damascena to Bulgaria.
