Rose Absolute Essential Oil
Emotionally, Rose Oil is helpful during times of stress. It is considered the choice oil for use during times of grief. I have read comments from those that have Post Traumatic Shock Disorder (PTSD) that it can be helpful for those that suffer from PTSD and varying levels of anxiety. When used in low concentrations, Rose Oil be helpful for insomnia. Therapeutically, Rose Oil is heralded for nurturing maturing skin and for its use with menstruation, menopause and hormonal issues for women.
