Rose essential oil is derived from fresh rose petals harvested by hand in the Bulgarian ‘Valley of the Roses’. Every year, at the beginning of June, more than 1,500 kilograms of oil are distilled from roses or ‘Rose Damascena’. One kilogram (kg) of rose oil is extracted from around 3000 Kg of roses. This rose oil is Bulgaria’s ‘liquid gold’.
The Many Benefits of Rose Oil:
This beautiful exquisite sweet oil not only smells divine but can do wonders for your skin. For centuries Rose has been used in cosmetics, medicines and perfumes by the ancients Greeks and Romans.
With its excellent moisturising effects on dry, irritated and chapped skin, Rose oil can help to nourish and hydrate skin.
Rose makes a wonderful skin toner as it acts as an astringent on the skin, helping to tighten and tone skin and is rich in Vitamin C, a powerful antioxidant that can help protect and improve the texture and appearance of the skin.
With its natural antibacterial properties, Rose essential oil can help treat acne and blemished skin, while its anti-inflammatory properties help to reduce redness and calm and sooth irritated skin.

It is important to always carry out a patch test before using any natural ingredients you haven’t used before. Just apply a small amount of the blend to the inside on your elbow and keep an eye on the area over the next 24 hours.
If any irritation does occur rinse the area with cool water. If you have blended a few essential oils together you may need to test each one individually to find out which is causing your skin to react.
