This month I thought it would be a handy to have a list of resources that are all about Rose absolutes or essential oils. All of the resources listed are from well qualified aromatherapists or vintage aromatherapists with over 30 years experience. Enjoy this "Rose essential oils & Rose Absolute - a path to learning more."
They are all resources that are very qualified to help you in your journey in learning about essential oils and absolutes.

Most of you have probably seen me cite research papers from Pubmed, so below are a few articles with research related to Rose.
Therapeutic efficacy of rose oil: A comprehensive review of clinical evidence.
The Effect of Topical Rosa damascena (Rose) Oil on Pregnancy-Related Low Back Pain: A Randomized Controlled Clinical Trial.
Efficacy of topical Rose (Rosa damascena Mill.) oil for migraine headache: A randomized double-blinded placebo-controlled cross-over trial.
There are a LOT more research studies out there. Also, if you are feeling like learning a little more about the potential benefits, take a look at the analysis for my Rose Absolute and search pubmed for the constituents that are dominant in the analysis.
