Highly prized for its rich floral scent, Rose absolute is also known for its calming properties, helping to soothe emotions and bring calm in the midst of fresh grief. It can promote relaxation before sleep when diffused or applied topically diluted in a carrier. It is extremely useful in skin rejuvenation, as Rose oil counteracts the visible signs of aging, reducing the appearance of wrinkles and helping smooth skin. Rose absolute is also reputed to help with the “power surges” suffered by many women going through the normal change of life.
