Rose Essential Oil
Rose essential oil also can be inhaled after sprinkling a drop or two of the oil onto a cloth or tissue, or by using an aromatherapy diffuser or vaporizer.
According to aromatherapy practitioners, inhaling essential oil molecules, or absorbing essential oils through the skin, transmits messages to the limbic system—a brain region responsible for controlling emotions and influencing the nervous system.
These messages are believed to affect biological factors such as heart rate, stress levels, blood pressure, breathing, and immune function.1 Rose essential oil is typically touted as an aromatherapy remedy for the following health concerns:
- Menopausal symptoms2
- Menstrual cramps3
In addition, rose essential oil is said to enhance libido, reduce stress, stimulate circulation, sharpen memory, and boost mood.
