In this article, I want to talk a little about Rose essential oil and some benefits of using it.
The rose is one of our most recognized flowers with a rich fragrance that has perfumed human history for centuries. From the ancient gardens of Persia where it was believed to be first cultivated to extravagant Roman banquets, the rose has symbolized love, passion, innocence, sympathy, desire and luxury.
Rose can help with both mental and physical ailments and so it's a good idea to keep it on hand. It is one of the more expensive oils, so be careful to get it from a reputable source in order to get its real benefits.
5 Ways To Use Rose Essential Oil
1. Relieving Depression
Rose essential oil has both mental and physical benefits, but let’s start with the mental and emotional benefits. It is a really good oil when you suffer from depression, whether it is related to bipolar depression, situational depression, or chronic depression. You can relax and really center your mind by using rose essential oil for aromatherapy.
2. Treating Your Wounds
As far as physical benefits, the first one is to use rose essential oil for your minor wounds. You don’t want to use oils with severe cuts, but with minor burns and scrapes, it can be very relieving. Similar to chamomile and lavender, rose essential oil has soothing properties. It won’t heal the wounds, but it can definitely help relieve inflammation and pain.
3. Improving Your Skin
Rose essential oil also happens to be wonderful for your skin condition. If you have mild or moderate acne, try using rose water with water and rose essential oil, with a small amount of carrier oil, and apply it to your skin. Of course, if you have oily skin, you might want to be careful with how much oil is being used. It can help with skin conditions like rosacea and dermatitis as well.
4. Treating Constipation
If you are struggling with digestive issues or constipation, you can relieve it with rose essential oil. In this case, ingestion is going to help you the best. Make a cup of tea with some chamomile and rose oil or herbs, and you will be able to use it as a natural laxative that is very soothing and easy on your stomach. You can use this for digestive issues like IBS as well.
5. Increasing Hormonal Health
Lastly, consider using rose essential oil to help with your hormonal health. It can help skin, relieve PMS symptoms, improve your libido, and help to balance out your hormonal levels. This works as something you ingest, or when using the oil as an aromatherapy oil like with an oil diffuser.
Consider other oils you can combine with rose essential oil for maximum health benefits, whether using it physically or for emotional ailments you are suffering from.
Rose can be a very expensive essential oil, so look around first before buying.
