ESSENTIAL OIL OF THE MONTH

ROSE ABSOLUTE

Rose Absolute essential oilThe rose has been described since antiquity as the queen of all flowers. Its beauty and scent has been cultivated and appreciated for millennia. The aromatherapy benefits of rose stem from the oil's powerful influence on our emotional centers. Not only does rose calm anxiety, reduce stress and release tension, but it has been highly regarded as an adjunct to love. Rose absolute is extracted from the blossom with solvents to form a sticky mass called the ‘concrete’. The concrete is washed clean of the solvent with alcohol. Finally, the alcohol is distilled away leaving behind the precious solvent/alcohol-free absolute oil.

Rose Absolute Sensual Perfume Oil
1 tablespoon grapeseed oil
1 tablespoon jojoba oil
10 drops rose absolute oil
7 drops sandalwood essential oil

Mix oils and store in a small glass vial. Massage a drop or two into pulse points.

Rose Absolute Emotional Rescue Remedy Spritz
4 ounces bottled or distilled water
12 drops rose absolute oil
3 drops geranium essential oil
3 drops clary sage essential oil
Small spray bottle or atomizer

Place ingredients in a spray bottle. Shake vigorously and lightly mist over skin.
