Scientific name: Rosa Damascena
Did you know it takes just over one million rose petals to produce one ounce of rose essential oil? Did you also know that production of the oil must take place on the day the rose petals are picked due to the petal’s delicacy?
Prized for its intoxicating and sweet floral scent, rose oil has found its way into many perfume and beauty products. Its ability to even skin tone, help with acne and reduce the appearance of imperfections on the skin makes it an especially attractive oil to use in your skin care routine.
Add a few drops of rose essential oil to your facial oil or make your own setting spray by adding several drops to spring water. Put the mixture in an atomizing spray bottle and mist on your face to help set your makeup and give your face a dewy appearance before heading out the door. Its uplifting effects make it a great way to start your day.
