Wake Up! Smell The…

Rose Otto – Rosa damascena

Aroma – Flowery, rosy, lemony, fresh.

Therapeutic Properties – Anti-infectious, anti-septic, tonic, astringent, aphrodisiac, antidepressant, sedative, calmative, emollient.

Interesting Facts Rosa comes from the Greek word roden, meaning “red”, as the ancient rose was thought to have been crimson. In myth, the rose was supposed to have sprung from the blood of Adonis (some accounts say Venus). It takes about 10,000 pounds of flowers to make 1 pound of rose oil.

10,000 pounds of flowers for 1 pound of oil?! No wonder rose is so expensive, but so worth it. Save your pennies, y’all, for this piece of heaven on earth!
