The oil extracted from the petals of rose flowers is mainly used as an emollient and so prevents moisture loss from the skin. Typically picked at dawn when the blooms are their most potent it takes thousands of petals to produce only a small amount of the oil so it is valued very highly. Luckily a few drops will be enough to reap the benefits this oil has to offer including improving skin texture, toning and calming the upper layers of the skin.
Otherwise known as: Rosa Damascena Flower Oil
There is also the cabbage rose or Rosa Centifolia Flower Extract which holds many of the same properties but is also used as a fragrance.
