Botanical Name: rosa centifolia

Rose Absolute is one of the top 5 must-have essential oils. It's a wonderful skin moisturizer and contains powerful aromatherapy properties that just make you feel better, especially when dealing with deep emotions like grief.

An interesting fact about rose oil is that it comes from the "thousand-petaled" rose and takes about 5 tons of roses to make a little over 2 pounds of oil.

Historical uses of rose and rose oil date back to 700 A.D. when rosewater was distilled by Arabs and Berbers of Morocco. Romans wore roses to protect themselves against drunkenness and during the Middle Ages roses were grown in monastery gardens for their medicinal uses.
