A dozen roses
A dozen roses

We have added a new scent to our collection of essential oils which we use to make soaps and bath salts – Rose Oil. Rose Essential Oil is extracted by steam distillation from fresh Damascus Roses. Why? Because they are the most fragrant species of rose and they have the highest oil content.

Many people consider roses to be the most beautiful of all flowers. Roses are featured in stories, fables, and legends, etc.  A person can find a rose for every occasion and mood. I had a college dorm mate that said she would know who the man she was to marry because he would bring her a dozen white roses. Almost everyone knows that red roses symbolize romance. In fact, roses are an aphrodisiac. What woman’s heart doesn’t flutter when her man brings her a dozen long-stemmed red roses?

That is what most people know about roses. But did you know that rose oil can be an antidepressant, antiseptic, and an astringent, as well as having other properties? Rose oil boosts confidence, self-esteem, relieves anxiety and helps fight depression. Widely used in aromatherapy, the scent can bring feelings of joy, happiness, and hope, as well as helping with relaxation. Think about the last time you smelled a rose. Didn’t you just want to take a deep breath or two? Did you feel your shoulders relax and a smile come to your face? Uh huh. That’s one of the benefits of rose oil. And that is why we have named our new soaps and bath salts Romantic Rose. Give it a try. You’ll be glad you did.
