Rose Petal Oil
Rose (Rosa centifolia) petal oil is steamed from the leaves of the world’s most beautiful (and expensive) flower. Due to the tiny leaves, it takes 10,000 roses to make just 5ml of rose oil. Is it worth it? Centuries of poetry and romance would suggest so.
Anti-inflammatory, antiseptic, antibacterial and antioxidant, it’s an effective treatment for many scalp and skin conditions, as well an effective moisturiser, skin tone balancer and great fragrance! So great, in fact, that it not only can improve mood, reduce depression and anxiety, and improve asthma, but can also be a strong aphrodisiac.
Fact drop: The rose has been linked with love since antiquity. Even Eros – the Greek god of love – is an anagram of rose.
