Rose Absolute (Rosa Centifolia) essential oil diluted at 5% into silky smooth, ultra-moisturising Jojoba Oil.
Rose is one of the most famous essential oils and probably one of the most used by therapists. Rose is emotionally balancing and spiritually uplifting and can help one to "see problems in proportion". It has an affinity with the female body and its many conditions. This 'light' version carefully prepared by Base Formula offers therapists and home enthusiasts an affordable way to experience the therapeutic benefits of this wonderfully fragrant oil.
Rose is helpful for dry and sensitive skins, combination and greasy skins, broken capillaries, discolouration around the eye socket, bags under the eyes, wrinkles and scars. It can help to improve feelings of wellbeing and engender a positive outlook and is used to help combat nervous hyperactivity, feelings of restlessness and depression. Rose is also helpful for period problems including an irregular cycle, heavy bleeding and problems conceiving. Because of its stress relieving qualities it can also be beneficial for headaches and facial aches and pains caused by stress-related teeth grinding and a tense jaw. Finally, Rose is also reputed to improve libido. In AD 200 Atheneus recorded that rose petals were strewn 8" deep when Cleopatra welcomed Mark Antony to increase his desire.
