The romantic scent of the rose is said to help restore inner balance and is considered by some to be an aphrodisiac.
Why do we love roses so much?
Rose petals are the source of rose oil, which some say was the first floral essential oil to be distilled. Rose oil has been an important part of fragrances and flavours for thousands of years. It is perhaps the most beloved floral scent in the world. The many versions of rose materials that we include as key ingredients in our products have an array of different qualities that will serve your senses, your skin and your mind!
What are the benefits of roses for the skin?
Depending on the concentration, roses products may:
- Subtly tighten the pores
- Restore radiance
- Improve elasticity
- Reduce the appearance of broken capillaries
