Rose, the Queen of flowers, as it is known, offers much more than a scent that will slay the most discerning of noses, it offers nourishment like no other in the plant kingdom to your delicate facial tissues.
Mother nature expressed her abundance and love for us when she created over one hundred species and thousands of varieties of this magnificent flower. Roses are found all over this world, prized for their colors, odors and all over aesthetic appeal. Some grow in manicured gardens while others bloom in wild bushes. Each type and variety contain something special in the eye (and nose) of the beholder.
Of all the varieties and locations in the world that these famous flowers grow, it is Bulgaria that can boast of having one of the best blooms cultivated for skin care and aromatherapy. For the benefits are not only in the constituents of the petals, but it is how the flower is cultivated, harvested and processed. In Bulgaria they are experts at extraction as well, maintaining the highest concentration of beneficial properties possible. This is quite a feat as it takes around 10,000 lbs of rose petals to distill one pound of oil.
So why do you need to incorporate this delicate flower into your skin care ritual or services offered as an esthetician?
Too many reasons to list! But lets name a few to wet your whistle and your continued study can go from here.
First and foremost it is astringent. Which means it cleans and closes pores and gently heals capillaries on even the most sensitive of skin types. It tones the skin by gently contracting the muscles and blood vessels of the facial tissues.
Rose is cicatrisant. This property helps restore, heal and add vitality to even the most damaged of dermis. It helps to fade scars after marks of boils, acne, stretch marks and surgery scars.
It is an anti-inflammatory agent that reduces redness and swelling. As a tissue regenerator it is loaded with therapeutic benefits for aging skin that has been exposed to the elements.
Those reasons alone should be enough to incorporate this magical oil into your every day life, but one of my most favorite aspects of Bulgarian Rose is that it offers all of these benefits as a botanical ingredient. Too often in today’s world we look to laboratories and complicated chemical processes for our skin care products. These products are often harsh, dangerous and crippling to our bodies and environment (not to mention, newer and less tested than the thousands of years of botanical beauty that has traveled through the times).
Along with the way that it heals your skin, it is often used in aromatherapy to heal and recover from a broken heart caused by suffering and loss. Rose essential oil is also used below the neck when there is need to balance the hormones affecting the female reproductive system to intensify lovin’ feelings (as an aphrodisiac) and to increase fertility. So take care of your whole being with this ingredient, as it is optimal for Mind, Body and Soul Care.
