Roses were in very high demand during the 17th century, and the Royal families even considered roses or Rosewater to be legal tender. The wife of Napoleon, Josephine, was well-known for having an extensive collection of roses at Chateau de Malmaison, an estate about 7 miles west of Paris, in the 1800s. Interestingly, the rose is often used to represent the Virgin Mary and has been historically considered as sacred to a number of goddesses.
As incredible as it sounds, Organic Damascene Rose essential oil has been recently scientifically shown to increase the energy vibration of every cell in the body, restoring balance and harmony to every bodily system! These amazing health benefits can be attained by simply breathing in the lovely fragrance of the flower. It takes approximately 2,000 flowers to produce one gram of the highly-prized essential oil. So it makes sense that it is usually so expensive to buy, and easier to obtain the oil's benefits as an ingredient in organic Rosewater.
Organic essential Rose oil has been highly sought-after for centuries, due to its many naturally beneficial properties for mind & body, including anti-depressant, antiseptic, anti-spasmodic, bactericidal (kills Strep, Staph, E. Coli, Anthrax, and Diphtheria.) Organic Damask Rose Oil’s innate healing power comes from its bio-complexity. It contains more than 300 organic compounds, and so it is definitely one of the most complex organic bio-chemicals on earth. This is why the essential oil is often referred to as Nature’s "Universal Healer." There are absolutely no natural limits to its ability to tone, heal and balance the skin. It is non-toxic, non-irritant, non-sensitizing and well-tolerated by all skin types.
This highly-energized organic composition of Damask Rose essential oil makes it highly effective in treating aging, dry, and damaged skin. It also tones the skin to reduce overly-active skin sebum secretion that can cause acne and enlarged pores. Organic Damask Rose essential oil’s natural toning and astringent properties became well known in the 18th century and was used at that time as the base oil for many healing tonics. Its unique skin toning abilities can actually produce a healthy and radiant complexion in just a few seconds. This healing powerhouse also has properties that reduce inflammation and skin redness, repair broken capillaries and is even effective in treating eczema and other common skin disorders.
As part of an organic, holistic healing approach to skin care, it is recommended that we "connect" with positively-charged atoms & energies as much as possible- in our diet, the air we breathe and in what we absorb into our bodies. Taking in as much good energy as possible is vital to maintaining our energy level and health. It has also been scientifically proven in recent years that the higher the energy vibration level in the body, the healthier the skin and body become. Incredibly, Organic Damask Rose Oil has been found to emanate the highest energy vibration of all known oils. - More on this to Come in Part II of this Blog Post!
