When used in aromatherapy, rose oil has been seen to reduce stress, decrease anxiety and depression. Rose oil has also been shown to improve sleep and reduce the stress hormone cortisol in the body.
Rose Oil contains vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. Therefore, rose oil has many health benefits when added to skin care products or applied directly to the skin. Rose oil has been shown to moisturize the skin, reduce inflammation, reduce appearance of scars, slow aging and decrease eczema and acne. The antioxidants found in rose oil have the ability to absorb deep into the dermis and reverse damage which is caused by UV rays from the sun. Reversing this damage can significantly slow aging in the skin. Rose oil also has the ability to visibly refine and smooth skin’s texture.
Rose Oil also contains antibacterial, antiseptic and astringent properties. These properties allow rose oil to treat acne, redness and inflammation. The therapeutic compounds in rose oil can also help treat skin conditions such as dermatitis and psoriasis.
