Essential Oil Spotlight: Rose

RoseRose essential oil is steam-distilled from flowers in the Rosaceae family. It can be applied topically, diffused, or inhaled. Its pleasant floral aroma may promote emotional balance.

Historically, the healing properties of rose were used as a medicine to aid with digestion, menstrual problems, headaches, poor circulation, and skin issues. It is still used widely in the East.

Rose has antihemorrhagic, anti-infectious, aphrodisiac, and sedative properties. It may be used to treat asthma, frigidity, sprains, nervous tension, ulcers, and wounds.
