Why rose essential oil is our skincare superstar

Traditionally, it is extracted from Rosa damascena, a special type of rose which is harvested to produce rose essential oil and rose water used mainly for making perfumes. Nowadays, its benefits for skin care have managed to increase its popularity in the cosmetic industry as well. It is used as a key ingredient in a wide range of skin care products and there’s a reason for that too! Believe it or not, rose essential oil has an antidepressant, antiseptic, antispasmodic, aphrodisiac, astringent, bactericidal and purifying properties. Its complex chemical composition with several biologically active ingredients have an amazing effect on various skin problems. Listed below are some of its many benefits.

Moisturizing properties 

Rose essential oil is known for its ability to calm and soothe skin that is dry, red or chapped. Just add rose oil to a hydrating face wash or cream and you will see the results for yourself! The oil penetrates into the deepest layers of the skin to boost and lock in moisture.

Anti-ageing properties 

The rose oil is the Queen of oils when it comes to anti-ageing. You will be hard pressed to find an anti-ageing facial oil without this key ingredient. Why does it work? It contains essential fatty acids – essential in keeping the skin hydrated and firm. The rose oil is known for toning the capillaries and stimulating circulation. It is also prized for its skin-rejuvenating properties. The oil can fight off facial skin wrinkles and various other signs of ageing really well, since it contracts the facial muscles a bit, which in turn uplifts sagging skin.

Bactericide properties 

Rose oil is very useful in treating and disinfecting minor cuts and scrapes. It contains a compound called farnesol, which helps to kill bacteria and helps with the regeneration of new skin. Rose oil


prevents and fights bacteria associated with conditions such as acne. It may help to treat pimples and blemishes by reducing the length and severity of flareups. If you have sensitive skin, rose oil is just for you, because it is generally safe for all skin types and does not cause allergic reactions.

Antidepressant properties 

According to aromatherapist Jeanne Rose, rose oil is used to soothe the nerves, calm the nervous system and act as a tonic to relieve symptoms of depression. Yes, we know you’re at the beach right now drinking cocktails and you’re not in a low mood, but it’s good to know (just in case) that the aroma of rose oil can provide a mood boost during times of stress and fatigue.
