Rose (Rosa damascena) – Powerful, luxuriant, and indulgent, the enticing and aromatic floral scent of Rose essential oil can be used as an aphrodisiac to help ignite passion and romance. Rose is a common ingredient in beauty products, and not only for its incredible aroma, but also for its well-known beautifying effects. Rose can be used to improve the beauty of skin, diminish signs of aging, and prevent scarring. Other benefits include its uses for digestion, aid cognition, ease stress, and uplift emotions. Rose essential oil doesn’t just smell like a delicate flower, it smells like an entire garden in every drop.
