Rose otto, known as the 'Queen of Flowers', is thought by many aromatherapists to
be the finest of the essential oils. The oil is one of the most expensive of the essential
oils as it takes many pounds of petals to produce the smallest amount of essential oil.
The symbolism connected with the Rose is probably one of the richest and most complex
of any plant, traditionally linked with Venus, goddess of love, beauty, youth and perfection.
Rose has a powerful tonic effect on the nervous system, it rejuvenates and regenerates
the skin and the scent calms strife and instils a feeling of peace and happiness.
Virtues – Tonic, antidepressant, cleansing, soothing, sedative.
