With Valentine’s Day right around the corner, we thought we’d take a moment and give recognition to a very special flower that has its home in this holiday – the rose.
Though roses are normally thought of as a symbol of love, they actually have many beauty benefits as well.
In ancient times, Greeks and Romans would use rose petals in their bath water to soften and lightly scent their skin and Cleopatra was known to use rose water as part of her beauty routine to keep wrinkles at bay.
Roses have many other benefits, including being anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory, anti-oxidant (fights age promoting free radicals), moisturizing as well as soothing, toning (to keep skin firm) and its scent helps to calm and relax the mind and body.
With so many incredible attributes and uses, we have incorporated Rose into our product line which is beneficial for all skin types and especially sensitive skin.
Our two Rose products are our Rose Hydrosol and Rose Tamanu Elixir.
Our Rose Otto essential oil, which is sourced from an organic farm in Bulgaria, is exceptional for keeping skin nourished, preventing pre- mature aging while also reducing inflammation and puffiness.
Rose Hydrosol – An uplifting organic hydrosol sourced directly from the Rose Valley in Bulgaria is distilled from rose petals and is designed to rejuvenate all skin types. It can be used to cleanse, tone and hydrate the skin anytime throughout the day. When used in conjunction with facial moisturizers, it helps to seal in moisture and keep skin plumped and rejuvenated.
