Whenever we start to think that other plant and flower families are at the top of the botanical beauty pyramid, the Rose family comes back to remind us who’s really sitting pretty at the top. Though Jasmine is regal, Ylang is fantastic and Blue Tansy is simply stunning, none of them compare to what the wide and magical Rose family has to offer: beauty, happiness, meditation and calm are all fed and nourished by Rose’s sweet bright essence. And among these Rose variations is Rockrose, our more woody, deep and rich Rose essential oil offering.
Rockrose, similar to other essential oils like Frankincense and Myrrh, has a history of being used as a spiritual and meditative aid. The flower grows on a shrub that is native to the Mediterranean region of the world and was used in Ancient Egypt in incense and as a perfume. It was so revered, in fact, that the false beards of the pharaohs were steeped in the resin of the Rockrose.
While most Rose oils have a rather light and strongly floral aroma, Rockrose is deeper with notes of amber and leather to round out the sweetness and slight spice of what we all have come to associate with Rose. It is a fabulous oil to use for aid with meditation and relaxation and makes a fine addition to other rituals and events with a ceremonial quality to them. It would make an absolutely fantastic addition to private label scent blends for perfume use as well as to add to private label skincare products; this is the kind of aroma that makes your product offerings stand out.
In skincare it is used for calm, toned, tight, young and smooth skincare purposes. It is absolutely divine in anti aging private label skincare that aims to be effective while also making the person using it feel like royalty. Because it works on the skin and the olfactory senses, both its skincare and aroma therapeutic effects are experienced and this makes it a really special ingredient indeed. And because it is used for its calm inducing properties in aromatherapy, it can be a fun way to combat stress related skin issues as well.Whether you want a stand out botanical perfume, your private label skincare products to be exceptional in both aroma and product efficacy, or you simple enjoy using and learning about essential oils, don’t let the power, beauty and mystique of Rockrose pass you by.
