The rose is a rose from the time it is a seed to the time it dies. Within it, at all times, it contains its whole potential. It seems to be constantly in the process of change: Yet at each state, at each moment, it is perfectly all right as it is.Paulo Coelho
Rose essential oil is rare indeed! It takes over 10,000 freshly picked rose blossoms to produce just 5ml of pure rose essential oil.
The distillation process is also sensitive, harvested petals must be processed the same day they’re picked or they lose potency.
Most rose products available are either rosewater concentrates or diluted rose essential oil. This is 100% pure rose oil. Which is why it carries one of the highest price tags of any doTERRA product. It requires a lot of intense labor to produce this precious liquid!
Rose is prized for it’s aroma, but it also has skin benefits. It makes a beautiful addition to home skincare preparations. You could even enhance store-bought skincare items by stirring a drop of rose essential oil into it.
Because this is concentrated, a little goes a long way. Be sure to use a gentle touch and this essential oil will give you gifts for a long time to come.
