History: Fossils have been collected around Central Asia, suggesting Roses originated there around 35 million years ago! However, the exact origins are somewhat mysterious; some historians believe that was in Syria’s capital, Damascus, while others believe it was in Persia. It was adopted and grown some 5,000 years ago by early civilizations such as the Romans, Chinese and Egyptians. Used as a medicinal plant, Rose oil was first distilled over 1,000 years ago by Avicenna. The Incas also adopted Rose essential oil as a cure-all remedy. Today, it is primarily cultivated in Turkey and Bulgaria.

What are Rose’s Skincare Benefits?
Rose provides a protective and astringent effect that helps skin to become clearer, softer and less irritated. Its rejuvenating benefits address issues such as dullness, dryness, age spots, wrinkles and fine lines. Its restorative qualities help provide healing from scarring, while it soothes inflammation, treating irritation, heat and pigmentation of the skin.

How Does Rose Help the Nervous System?
One of Rose’s main activities is helping to combat a wide range of stress-related conditions. This is because Rose strengthens the parasympathetic nervous system which encourages the body to rest and digest, so as a result decreases the fight-or-flight response associated with anxiety. It shares a compound with chocolate, Phenyl Acetaldehyde, helping to lift low moods and increase relaxation.
