Rose oil has been used for many centuries throughout the world for many wonderful things. From skincare to food and relaxing the mind and its many therapeutic benefits, it truly is a wonderful oil for many purposes.
Rose oil is mainly harvested from Bulgaria, but France, Turkey, Morocco also produce this wondrous oil too.
The oil is produced and extracted from the petals of the rose and it is actually a by-product of the process of making rose water.
Rose oil is one of the more expensive oils on the market and that is because it takes 10,000 roses to make just 5ml of product!
Benefits of Rose Oil
There are many, many uses of rose oil including; relieving anxiety, balancing hormones, help to improve skin tone, reduce rosacea and help towards improving depression. It can also be used to kill bacteria in a cut, to reduce signs of scars plus so much more.
We’ve created a small list of the things Rose oil can help with.
Mental health is a chronic condition that has seen a huge rise in the number of people suffering from it over the past few years. There are many external factors associated with triggering depression and anxiety, as well as those internal factors meaning some people are genetically predisposed to suffering these horrible conditions.
Many who do suffer, try to avoid taking medication for many reasons and may prefer to use more natural remedies to help. Lavender and Rose oils have been used for many years in helping to calm the mind, body and to help boost and uplift one’s mood.
The sweet and soothing smell is as an anti-anxiety agent, that works wonders when used to fill the air of one’s home, as well as including it when having a massage (something that often helps with the symptoms of mental health), or in your daily skincare regime.
We would like to mention at this point that natural remedies alone aren’t necessarily going to cure one’s depression and/or anxiety alone. They work well at helping to reduce the symptoms for a period of time and in conjunction with medication, but we would strongly recommend to always seek the advice of your doctor and/or counsellor first.
