A rose by any other name would smell as sweet

So said Shakespeare in his eloquent way. It doesn’t matter what you call a rose; it’s beautiful, fragrant, and a time-honored symbol of love.

It’s hard to come across someone who doesn’t enjoy the look and smell of roses. Maybe you have received them as a gift. Maybe you have given them. Perhaps you can grow them in your garden. Very few plants or flowers have universal appeal – like the rose.

Besides being a pretty, fragrant flower, did you know the rose has many other uses? Did you know that it has a very long history in skincare? Medicine?

In a minute, we will discuss some great products taking full advantage of the rose’s many fine properties, but first, here’s a list of ways this dearly loved blossom can be used.

  1. Ornamental: Roses are widely grown for their beauty and fragrance. They are used in landscapes, gardens, and indoor arrangements.
  2. Symbolic: Roses often symbolize love and romance. Different colors can represent different feelings or messages.
  3. Culinary: Rose petals and rose hips (the fruit of the rose plant) are edible and used in cooking and baking. They can make jams, jellies, syrups, teas, and rose-flavored desserts.
  4. Medicinal: Rose hips are rich in vitamin C and have been used in traditional medicine. They are used in supplements and herbal teas.
  5. Cosmetics: Rose oil and rose water, derived from rose petals, are used in perfumes, soaps, lotions, and other cosmetic products due to their pleasant scent and potential skin benefits.
  6. Art: Roses are prevalent in art and photography due to their beauty and symbolism.
  7. Religious: In certain cultures and religions, roses are used in rituals and ceremonies.
  8. Literature: Roses are a common symbol in literature and poetry, often representing love, beauty, or transience.

With so many uses, it’s no wonder that the history of using roses dates back almost as far as written history. This is especially true with rose essential oil, or as it’s often called, rose otto. It has many benefits for your skin, and as stated, it has a long history.

What is rose essential oil?

Rose essential oil, or Rose Otto, is a natural product derived from the petals of various roses, mainly Rosa damascene and Rosa centifolia. It’s obtained through steam distillation, which preserves its aroma and color.

Rose otto contains several compounds that contribute to its scent and therapeutic effects, such as geraniol, alkenes, neroli, and 2-phenylethanol.

Rose otto has been used for centuries for its aromatic characteristics and in perfumes. However, in recent years, it’s gained popularity as a skincare ingredient due to its many benefits. These benefits include visible hydration, antibacterial properties, and antioxidant protection.

However, its recent popularity as a skincare ingredient may seem surprising when considering its long history for such purposes. Has it been rediscovered? Was it forgotten about? Well, not quite. There have always been those who have known of its miraculous properties and effects on the skin. With a growing movement of individuals desiring natural products, it has started once again to come to the forefront of skincare. 

The history of using Rose Otto.

Let’s go back in time to the days of the Pharaohs. Yes, as far as research can tell us, the use of Rose Otto dates back to ancient Egypt. Here in the Nile Delta, it was used for religious and ceremonial purposes. The Egyptians believed that Rose Otto held powerful healing properties. They routinely applied it for skin problems and ingested it for digestive issues. Of course, they also applied it as a sweet perfume to their bodies.

 It was widely used for aromatherapy and beauty treatments in ancient Greece and the Roman era. Even then, Rose Otto created perfumes, oils, lotions, creams, ointments, bath treatments, scrubs, toners, and cleansers.

By medieval times, Rose Otto had made its way to Europe from Arab traders who brought it from Asia Minor. It was costly and was mainly used by royalty and nobility. It quickly became a luxury good and was associated with romance and love due to its fragrance.

Fast forward 500 years or so, and Rose Otto is now widely accessible and more affordable (although not cheap). This is mainly due to technology taking away the labor-intensive aspect of harvesting and processing the rose. It has become prevalent in aromatherapy, cosmetics, and perfumes worldwide. Rose Otto is also considered one of the most potent essential oils, which can work wonders on your skin.

The benefits of Rose essential oils

Rose Otto can penetrate deep into your skin’s pores. This helps deliver the beneficial ingredients of rose essential oils where they are most needed. These ingredients include antioxidants and anti-inflammatory compounds such as vitamins A, C, and E.

Rose essential oil is also antibacterial, mildly astringent, and can help moisturize and nourish the skin. It has also been shown to have healing properties against dryness, irritation, infection, scarring, sun damage, and stretch marks.

Called by any other name, it would still be a fantastic product of nature. It would still have all the valuable benefits of such a remarkable flower. Let’s consider a company that uses Rose Otto to your skin’s advantage. The timeless rose is even in the name.

Necessity creates a skin sensation.

The year is 2015, and Ashley has finally had enough. For nearly two decades, she has been battling cystic acne. With its deep, painful cysts, scarring, and embarrassment, she was done. She was done with over-the-counter remedies (she had tried them all). And she was done with prescription treatments (she had tried all of those as well, some more than once).

Ashley had always been in awe of the starlets of the 20s, 30s, and 40s. She had always marveled at their smooth and flawless skin. How did it happen? Surely they knew something we didn’t?

So, after long research, she found recipes for a three-step skin treatment. Ashley got to work in her Mom’s kitchen and whipped up her first batch of cold cream. After experiencing the results of the cold cream, she created other products. Then, she began selling her products to others in need.

Slowly but surely, word spread about her products and how well they worked. Since then, Ashley has outgrown her workspace twice. Her company, The Lovely Rose Apothecary, now occupies an old pharmacy built in 1899 in the Colorado mountain town of Victor.

In this new and spacious workplace, she is still handcrafting skin treatments for those who are sick and tired of pouring money into skincare that doesn’t care. Ashley is proud to introduce to you her original, and most popular product,

I have to admit, I wasn’t sure about going back into vintage times for skincare, given how much the field of chemistry has advanced the last few decades, but I’m glad I tried this rose skincare set. I am nearly 50 with maturing skin, and it seems impossible that just one or two products could be so soothing and rehydrating.
