Rose Facial Oil

Have you heard how wonderful Rose Facial Oil is for skin?!  If not, let me tell you all about it!  

I first heard about rose years and years ago from a dear friend who was into aromatherapy.  I wanted to learn more about aromatherapy so I bought several highly regarded books on the subject and dove in.  They all raved about rose!  And I really, really wanted some.  But it's SO expensive.  Finally I found a source where I could order it by the drops, making it fit my budget!  Fast forward to now, and we are getting it wholesale so we can put it in our face oil and share it with the world.  

When used on the skin Rose de Mai Absolute provides a protective and astringent effect that leads to clearer, softer, and less irritated skin. It is also known to help dryness, dullness, age spots, fine lines, and wrinkles. It is soothing and helps to decrease irritation, inflammation, and pigmentation.  Not only that but in aromatherapy, Rose is commonly used for its uplifting effects, as an anti-depressant, to ease stress, anger, and anxiety. Because it is calming it can be helpful for insomnia, so consider adding it to your night time skin care routine. It is is also a known aphrodisiac.  So that's quite the bonus!
