Explaining Essential Oils- Rose Essential Oil
Rose Essential Oil
Botanical Name: Rosa
What is it?
Roses are arguably one of the most favored scents of all time, even dating back to the time of Shakespeare where he referenced roses in Romeo and Juliet with the phrase "A rose by any other name would smell as sweet."
How can I use it?
Aromatherapy. Diffusing rose essential oil is a great natural way to boost your mood and provide a soothing scent through your home or office. Rose essential oil has actually been used in hospital post-operative care units to comfort patients and promote healing.
Aphrodisiac. Research from a double-blind, randomized placebo-controlled clinical trial involving males with sexual dysfunction revealed that rose essential oil can be an effective alternative treatment for issues in the bedroom. Applying a diluted solution or diffusing this oil can help stimulate sexual arousal and improve bedroom performance.
Anti-Anxiety. Department of Rehabilitation Sciences at the Hong Kong Polytechnic University published research that showed the effectiveness of aromatherapy for depressive symptoms such as moodiness and anxiety. The study showed that the majority of patients reported symptom improvement when they practiced aromatherapy. The reasoning behind this is believed to be because rose essential oil stimulates the release of the chemical, dopamine which impacts mood stabilization.
What are the benefits?
Many studies have shown that rose essential oil can have a positive impact in lowering high blood pressure and elevated heart rates. Most people, when exposed to a diffused area with rose oil reported feeling much more relaxed.
