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.
Personal 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.
