Rose Otto essential oil is composed of a large quantity of monoterpenols, with citronellol and geraniol in the lead - it is rich in more than 200 components, the vast majority of which are found in trace amounts.
In aesthetic aromatherapy, it is a remarkable skin tonic, astringent, anti-wrinkle, anti-couperose, and stimulant for dull and tired skin.
The aroma that emerges is tenacious, floral, deep, the quintessence of the flower from which it comes. This EO soothes the nervous system, calms the confused and overheated mind. It is well suited to emotional shocks following intense events, happy or unhappy. The rose is, with the jasmine, the most complete illustration of floral identity. It will help an inward-looking individual, lacking confidence in his or her own resources, to reveal his or her own charisma and to exist fully.
