Common Name: Rose 

Latin Name: Rosa damascena 

Aroma: The aroma from this rose will take you back to a time when you might have grown roses or even been in a garden surrounded by roses. The light and delicate yet sweet aroma of the rose petals shine through in this absolute. It whispers of sweet powdery fresh petals being blown gently in the wind....rejuvenation, rebirth, and relaxation all wrapped up into a single drop. 

It is definitely a powerful yet feminine absolute to be reckoned with. If you are looking to inspire your inner goddess, this is definitely your best choice! The aroma is best enjoyed in dilution or even on a scent/fragrance stick.

Energetic Qualities: Rose is definitely of Venus and is cooling offer to soothe anger/aggression. It is balancing, calming during stressful transitions, helps take the load off the nervous system, rejuvenating, heals deep despair, soothes and heals the heart, provides strength through rebirth, and is the epitome of love.

Recommended applications: Diffuse, topical application using safe dilution ratios, steam inhalation, inhaler.

Aromatherapist Notes: Rose is known for and touted as having many effects such as calming/soothing, purifying the reproductive system, hormone balancing during menopause, and even cooling for hot flashes (use the mist). I have used it for emotional and uplifting  blends and sometimes in a luxurious lotion. Rose can be used in skin care preparations and for the pure floral beauty of the aroma. In fact, it is frequently used in creams or serums for the face.

Such a beautiful Rose. I’m

Such a beautiful Rose. I’m not a huge fan of the EO rose scent, what I love is the therapeutic benefits of rose. BUT, this rose scent, I love! It’s like smelling a real rose flower, soft and gorgeous, not an in-your-face grandmas wearing her rose perfume! Will buy more, but only from back Botanicals.

The Rose absolute is amazing.

The Rose absolute is amazing. The best I’ve smelled thus far. The scent is exactly like fresh blooming roses. I’ve already had to share some with my mom. A definite repurchase. Thank you!

Gorgeous! Very cost-effective way to get an amazing Rose absolute!

I got a small amount to try it, knowing it would not go to waste even if I don't love it. WELL, I love it! Wish I had bought more. I really appreciate that even the 1-mL size comes in a 1-mL screw cap bottle. Last time I bought 1-mL from another company it came in a 5 mL bottle and I lost at least 1/3 of it decanting into a smaller container. Never again there, but I like Lola's better, anyway! Thank you! If you need rose in your life, the smaller sizes are very cost effective and a little bit diluted truly goes a long way!
