Damask Rose (Rosa damascena) is also known as Rose Otto. There are many varieties of roses, but Damask Rose is the most popular in essential oil use and quite the beautiful aroma. The highest quality EO’s come from Turkey or Bulgaria. Some are either hydro-distilled from the petals or another way would be called an “absolute” which is distilled using solvents. Some benefits of this lovely Rose are:

  • balancing female hormones
  • used for depression or anxiety
  • use for eczema or mature skin
  • aphrodisiac

Rose blends well with many different florals, Clary Sage, Sandalwood, Bergamot, and Rosewood.
