(Rosa centifolia) Rose Flowers / Rosa damascene) Rose Otto Essential Oil
One of my all time favourite oils. I use it in all my Facial Skincare products for its amazing skin benefits. It is considered the "Queen of Flowers" in skincare. It is beneficial for all skin conditions, especially acne, dry, mature or sensitive skins, eczema, rashes and other skin issues.
Organic Rose Essential Oil is obtained by the steam distillation of the whole flowers and production is very labour intensive, thus the oil commands a very high price. The flowers are hand picked at dawn, when the fragrance is strongest, and it takes around 200 blooms to produce just a few drops of pure oil. Its beautiful fragrance has a honeyed sweetness and subtle fresh, floral top notes.
Rose Essential oil is calming, uplifting, and has aphrodisiac qualities and is beneficial for treating insomnia and is anti-viral and anti-infectious. It has a calming effect for grief, resentment, anger and depression. Rose Essential Oil has a sedative effect, which aids in times of shock and bereavement. It is used to ease menopause, nervous tension and stress, and lifts the heart.
We wanted the same wonderful benefits of organic Rose in our baby skincare so we approached it in a more gentle yet effective way. Our organic Rose Flowers are used as herbs in our Baby Tub Tea or hand-infused in organic Sunflower oil for our Baby Oil, to offer a gentle, hydrating, cleansing and calming element to our baby skincare.
