The Benefits of the Rose: One of Nature’s Best Gifts

Have you noticed that cosmetics based on natural products are somewhat more trustworthy? They create this feeling that you are using something that the environment has produced for you, so it will only make the product work better. There is a wide variety of miracle workers found in nature: coconut, chamomile, aloe vera, honey, jojoba, etc. The extracts found in cosmetics can help reduce inflammation, hydrate the skin, decrease aging signs like fine lines and wrinkles, etc. Basically, we need to learn more about the beauty we can acquire from nature: it is all there for us to catch!

Rose is one of the most amazing natural beauty ingredients. In ancient times, it was used in baths as it added an amazing, calming fragrance to the water. The aroma was not its only benefit: it also made the whole interior more beautiful.

Often products rely on natural products just as ingredients. However, it is not quite the case with roses. Rose water is obtained through a special, yet simple chemical process. Rose petals are distillated and a very, very small amount of rose is acquired, as well as rose water as secondary product.

Rose oil is incredibly expensive in its purest form. Meanwhile, rose essential oil is incredibly beneficial. First of all, it has great psychological effects. It can serve as an antidepressant! It can boost self esteem as confidence, as well as overall mental strength while being quite efficient in the struggle with mild depression. No wonder people add rose petals in their baths: it is a great aromatherapy product. The results of inhaling rose oil include positive thoughts, relaxation, joy, hopefulness and happiness.

Second of all, rose oil has antiseptic properties. It can be used to treat wounds: quite luxurious and nice-smelling, right? Applying rose oil to any cuts or wounds can help any infections from developing.

Third of all, it has astringent properties. It can strengthen your hair roots, tone and lift your skin and contract muscles, intestines and blood vessels.

Of course, you should keep in mind that high-concentrated oil can have too strong of an aroma, so keep the concentration lower. We advise you to generally avoid rose oil in the purest form: mild concentrations are the most beneficial ones!

Roses can produce another product, as we already mentioned: rose water. It is a lot cheaper than rose oil, but incredibly helpful for your skin! Its wide array of benefits make it the perfect product for your beauty routine. You can use it as a thermal water or as a water. So what can it do?
