Rose Otto 10% (5ml)
Rosa damascenea. Origin - Bulgaria
Rose Otto oil has as deliciously aromatic and intense rose fragrance. It is little stronger and more floral than it's softer counterpart, our Rose Absolute.
Both our Rose Otto and Rose Absolute oils are produced from Bulgarian roses, recognized as the most beatifully scented roses in the world. They are in a 10% dilution to make them accessible and affordable. As such they are also safe to use directly on the skin without the need for a carrier oil.
Rose Otto is obtained through a steam distillation method, as opposed to the extraction method used for the Rose Absolute, however they are both to be used in the same way. These different methods of prodution are what account for the differenct in price, making Otto the more expensive method, but producing a more potent oil.
Soothing and restorative, rose can help with depression, anger, grief, nervous tension and stress.
Essential to the heart chakra, this intoxicating oil also acts as an effective aphrodisiac. Very effective used in a healing bath on it's own or blended with other essential oils.
For a gentler soothing bath, add your Rose (or blended oils, as you choose) to a cup of baking soda, mix well, then integrate the whole mixture into your bath, once you are sitting comfortably in your tub. Allow yourself 20-30 minutes for your sacred bath time.
When diluted in a carrier oil or cream for topical use, this absolute has powerful anti-aging benefits. It is packed with essential fatty acids, vitamins and antioxidants that work to moisturize the skin, reduce hyperpigmentation, minimize wrinkles and the appearance of scars. A favourite ingredient in skin care.
Blends well with bergamot, lavender, neroli, patchouli and geranium essential oils.
