Rose (Rosa damascena) has a beautiful, strong floral and sweet fragrance that is intoxicating and highly romantic. It helps bring balance and harmony with stimulating and uplifting properties that create a sense of well-being and self-confidence. Used for skin care for thousands of years, it is perfect for dry or aging skin. Rose has an approximate ORAC of 1,604,284 (TE/L). TE/L is expressed as micromole Trolox equivalent per liter.
The most expensive essential oil that Young Living sells, and the one that has the highest frequency of any essential oil, Rose is no doubt a very special oil.
It’s Shakespeare’s favorite flower, after all. And, it’s ancient… according to fossil evidence, the rose is 35 million years old!
People often want to know why Rose is so expensive. I’ve seen some other brands on the market that are very cheap but there is no way that it’s 100% pure because one drop of pure rose essential oil equals 60 roses! Cheaper brands often use Geranium or Palmarosa essential oils, which keep the costs lower.
I don’t own this essential oil… YET. But if I did, I would use on my skin often! It’s wonderfully hydrating and good for “mature” skin. It is also wonderful diffused inspiring romance, self-love and compassion. This oil is used in several special blends like Gentle Baby, White Angelica, Forgiveness, Joy and Inner Child.
