Rose essential oil is a type of essential oil commonly used in aromatherapy. Sourced from the Rosa damascena plant, it contains the flower’s aromatic compounds. Because these compounds are thought to possess healing properties, rose essential oil is used for a number of health-related purposes.
According to aromatherapy practitioners, inhaling essential oil molecules, or absorbing essential oils through the skin, transmits messages to the limbic system — a brain region responsible for controlling emotions and influencing the nervous system. These messages are believed to affect biological factors such as heart rate, stress levels, blood pressure, breathing, and immune function.
When applied directly to the skin, skin care products containing rose essential oil are purported to hydrate dry skin, clear acne, reduce signs of aging, minimize the appearance of scars, and help with conditions such as eczema and rosacea.
Rose essential oil is typically touted as an aromatherapy remedy for the following health concerns:
• Menopausal symptoms
• Menstrual cramps
In addition, rose essential oil is said to enhance libido, reduce stress, stimulate circulation, sharpen memory, and boost mood.
So far, scientific support for the benefits of rose essential oil is fairly limited. Here’s a look at some key findings from scientific research on the health benefits of rose essential oil:
Rose essential oil may help relieve stress. According to a study, people who received rose essential oil experienced a greater increase in feelings of calm and relaxation, as well as a greater decrease in breathing rate and blood pressure, compared to those who received the placebo.
A study indicates that rose essential oil may improve sleep quality in people hospitalized in coronary care units.
Rose essential oil may help alleviate anxiety. A study showed that the use of aromatherapy with rose water for hemodialysis patients noticeably reduced their anxiety levels.
4) Menopausal Symptoms
Rose essential oil may be of benefit to women undergoing menopause through weekly massages with several essential oils, including lavender and jasmine essential oils, in addition to rose and rose geranium essential oils.
5) Menstrual Cramps and Pain
When combined with lavender, cinnamon, and clove oils in a base of almond oil, rose essential oil used for abdominal massage may be effective in decreasing the severity of menstrual cramps.
Tips on Using it
When combined with a carrier oilc(such as jojoba, sweet almond, or avocado), rose essential oil can be applied directly to the skin or added to baths in very small amounts.
Rose essential oil also can be inhaled after sprinkling a drop or two of the oil onto a cloth or tissue, or by using an aromatherapy diffuser or vaporizer.
