Roses have long added beauty and romance to history, fairy tales, and major life events. But did you know that there is an impressive list of health and skincare benefits as well?
Besides enhancing a woman’s connection to her femininity, the essential oil of rose can help with depression, detoxifying the blood, and relieving headaches. For a thorough list of other (unexpected!) benefits of rose oil, see OrganicFacts.net.
I often like to branch out of the known beauty and home uses for essential oils and was delighted to find so many unique ideas for this sweet-smelling botanical. Here are some favorites I have found that use rose essential oil and rose water:
Rose Honey Face Mask
Rejuvenate and replenish your skin.
Sweet almond oil, which is light and easily absorbed, softens and nourishes skin.
Honey as natural humectant, moisturizes, leaving even tired skin incredibly smooth.
2 T Honey
2 T Sweet Almond oil
5 drops essential oil of Rose
1 drop Vitamin E oil.
Mix honey, sweet almond oil and essential oil of rose. Massage onto clean face and neck with fingertips.
Relax for 15 minutes, then rinse off with lukewarm water. Gently pat dry to reveal a fresh, soft complexion.
Almond Rose Bread
A delicious sweet treat!
Cardamom Rose Cocktail
An elegant way to take the edge off of your day!
