Recently my husband gave me a dozen roses for a special occasion.
They were absolutely beautiful... and this dozen had some of the biggest rose flowers I've ever seen!
It's not every day I get roses, of course, so I really treasure them when I receive them.
But there is a way I can enjoy and benefit from roses whenever I want... and that's through a bottle of pure rose essential oil.
Rose oil is one of the most valuable of essential oils.
A big reason for this is that it takes 22 pounds of rose petals to make just 5 ml of pure rose oil!
People also value this oil for its one-of-a-kind aroma.
Not only does its unique smell bring about feelings of romance, but the pleasure it brings to the senses is exhilarating and inspiring.
There are also some real health benefits from rose oil.
These benefits include:
-- support of the circulatory system...
-- boosting of the mood as it brings harmony and balance...
-- And support to healthy skin, as it has for thousands of years.
This wonderful oil can be applied in a number of ways.
For example, you can:
- apply it to the skin so it appears more youthful looking
- use it for the face by adding it to your facial cream as an added moisturizer
- mix a small amount with massage oil, for an extremely relaxing massage experience
- use for hair by combining it with shampoo or conditioner to give an exquisite floral scent
- diffuse in a room of your house for romance or a spa like setting
In addition to these uses, there's one other that's my favorite...
And that's to add a few drops of rose essential oil to a small glass spritzer bottle and mist yourself.
This is a great way to improve your sense of well-being – and just feel pretty.
The other thing a like about this use is that it only takes a small amount of oil, which helps extend the use of valuable, pure rose essential oil.
Because of its price, pure rose essential oil may be too expensive to buy as an ordinary purchase, but it can make a great gift for a special time of year.
