Extracting Rose oil – also known as Rosa damascena or Rosa centifolia– can be a delicate process that mirrors the delicate nature of the flower itself. However, nothing about rose oil’s effectiveness shares that delicacy.
According to Livestrong.com, the potency of rose oil allows it to be dispersed easily in water and air, making it ideal for baths & massages. By applying it directly to your skin, you can hope for positive effects like the stimulation of organs, muscles, skin and nerves, as well as balanced female hormones, regulation of your period and improved fertility. Some reports also indicate that rose oil’s antiphlogistic properties make it a good treatment for inflammation as well.
