Roses are widely considered the most beautiful flowers in the world. It’s one of my absolute favorites, and I can’t wait to have a rose garden of my own! This flower is an integral part of innumerable stories, legends, myths, and legacies.

I use this essential oil everyday in my skincare routine, I just mix a few drops into my night oil and apply it to my face and neck. I love it!

We all know about the emotional and psychological effects of rose, it can evoke love in even the most close hearts… Let’s explore some of the medicinal and health benefits of rose essential oil below.

Health Benefits Of Rose Essential Oil

Fights Depression

Rose oil boosts self-esteem, confidence, and mental strength while efficiently fighting depression. They can be very helpful in driving away depression and anxiety. As an antidepressant, rose oil can be given to patients with acute depression or anyone experiencing a difficult time to bring positivity into their lives.

Sedates Inflammation

Rose essential oil may calm down a patient with high fever by sedating the inflammation. It can also be beneficial in other cases of inflammation caused by microbial infection, ingestion of poisonous materials, indigestion, and dehydration. This can result in reduction of associated conditions like rheumatism, arthritis, gout, and fever.

Treats Wounds

This is the most fragrant and luxurious way to treat wounds; imagine treating wounds with oils of rose instead of ordinary antiseptic lotions. Topically applying rose oil to wounds helps to protect them from developing infections.


Everyone knows how indispensable roses are in the romantic department. The very scent of it can arouse you, and it boosts the libido while invoking romantic feelings which of course are essential for a satisfying sex life.

Furthermore, it can cure internal bacterial infections like those in the colon, stomach, intestines, and urinary tract as well as external infections on the skin, ears, eyes, and wounds.

Skin Care

This property of rose essential oil can be of great interest for those who care a lot about their looks. It makes the scars and after marks of boils, acne, and the pox on the skin fade quickly. This includes the fading of stretch marks, surgery scars, and fat cracks associated with pregnancy and delivery. Much of this is due to the antioxidant activity of rose essential oil, which spurs on the healing processes of the skin.

Purifies the Blood

Rose essential oil purifies the blood by helping in the removal and neutralization of toxins. Once your blood is purified and free of toxins, you are protected from boils, rashes, ulcers, and skin diseases, as well as serious conditions that free radicals can cause, like cancer and heart diseases.
