Rose Essential Oil Uses

Rose Oil (Rosa damascene) is one of the most beautiful and valuable of oils. It is often called "Queen of the Flowers." Rose oil is an extraordinarily complex oil, though it seems otherwise. When you smell a rose, or even a dozen roses, it has a light, delicate scent. However, one bottle of Rose oil is made from thousands of rose petals, so the scent is concentrated and extremely strong.

Because of the immense amount of work that goes into making the Rose oil, it is very expensive. To make it easier for you to get this amazing oil, we also sell Blend of Rose, which is Rose oil blended  in the carrier oil F.C.O. All of the properties and benefits are still the same, it just provides you with a more affordable option.

Rose can give you feelings of love, it's no wonder the flower has been used for gifts of love for centuries!

Combines Well With

Sandalwood, Clary Sage, Roman Chamomile, Cassia, Palmarosa, Patchouli, Bergamot, Balsam of Peru, Rosewood, Melissa, Frankincense, Clove Bud, Myrrh, and all floral oils.

Ways to Use It

  • It's an excellent oil for rounding off blends.
  • It helps soothe the scalp and is good for fine hair. To use as a scalp massage, mix 1 drop with a teaspoon of F.C.O. and massage into scalp after a shower.
  • You can use it as a perfume. For that, it is better by far than any of the commercial scents. Rose can be mixed with any of the flower scents so you can try it with different ones like Lavender and see what works best for you.
  • As skin care, you can mix it into lotions and creams. Just mix 2-5 drops with a tablespoon of the lotion or cream of your choice. (Always try it on a small area of skin first to make sure you don't have any adverse reactions.)
  • Is very calming. One drop in a conference room can help keep tempers calm and controlled, even help people relax and smile when in a meeting.
  • Put 1 drop on top of an unscented candle before lighting.


* As always, make sure you can use it on your skin by testing on a small part before using oils in a massage or a bath.
