Maybe it’s time to slow down and smell the roses – literally!
While the beauty and fragrance of roses have inspired poets and lovers through the ages (for that other “S” thing we do in bed) it’s also a gentle, non-toxic therapeutic herb used to treat insomnia, depression, inflammation, stress and mental cramps. Whether it’s applied to the skin or used as aromatherapy, there’s no denying the power of rose as a healing tonic and mood-elevating supplement. But it’s also often used in cosmetics because of its delicious scent and anti-aging properties.
Rose petals only contain minimal amounts of oil so it can take thousands of pounds of rose petals to produce a single ounce of oil. But even though rose oil is one of the most expensive essential oils on the market, it’s still one of the most popular.
Although scientific research on rose oil is fairly limited, so far it’s getting a thumbs up. Here’s a look at some key findings on the health benefits of rose essential oil – and suggestions for incorporating it into your life.
