Throughout history no flower has been so loved or renowned as the rose. Roses have been revered both as plant and essential oil. Among all the flowers in the world, Rose has the oldest history with fossilized remains estimated to be over 35 million years old.
What is Rose Essential Oil?
Considered as one of the most revered skincare ingredients available, it takes tens of thousands of rose blossoms to yield 1 ounce of rose essential oil. That makes rose oil one of the most expensive essential oils; however only a few drops are necessary to reap the full benefits it has to offer. Fun fact: Rose essential oil has the highest known vibrational frequency, which is why they're so powerfully purifying and healing for our mind and body.
