Why Rose Oil?
Rose Oil has been making headlines in the beauty industry lately. The newest sensation has everyone talking - something that smells incredible is also great for your skin and mood?! YES! They’re not wrong!
Before we dive in, the main rose flower species’ used to create rose essential oil are Rosa damascena (damask rose), Rosa centifolia (cabbage rose), and Rosa alba (the white rose of York) since they all have the strongest scents and highest oil content than others. So, make sure the products you’re using contain one of these - although Rosa damascena is arguably theeee best as it’s the most medicinal and pure. Essential Rose products source Rosa damascena Absolute, which is infused in Jojoba Oil (also an incredible elixir for your skin, but more on Jojoba in a future blog :)).
When used in aromatherapy, rose oil is proven to improve cognition through impacting the limbic system in the brain. The limbic system, also called the “seat of emotion,” is where we process our emotions, instincts, memories, and associations, as well as regulate our hormone production. This means rose oil typically induces physiological effects that create a stronger and more alert nervous system that helps us process our memories and soothe our emotions. It also triggers serotonin and dopamine (happy hormones!) to be released, which is why we tend to smile or get happy from smelling roses.
When applied to the skin, rose oil aids in reducing inflammation and even redness. It has been proven that drops of rose oil remove pain from injured areas of skin, as well (ahhhmazing!) The overall wellness of skin is improved when rose oil is applied on a consistent basis - making it softer, smoother, and less irritated, and reducing acne and other skin conditions. Speaking of acne, it can be a natural healer when painful breakouts occur.
Not only is she good for mood and skin, but she actually supports the healthy functioning of our reproductive system! Decompressing with rose oil by dropping it onto a warm compress or massaging it directly into the belly can be beneficial in lowering blood pressure, reducing stress, and dulling chronic ailments caused from menopause. Hot flashes, mood swings, and low libido can all be aided when diffusing rose oil on a daily basis.
And can I make one compelling argument that will make you love rose oil? IT. IS. ROSES! Pink, red, and white, beautiful-smelling, pretty roses! Thank you for coming to my TedTalk.
