AQ Essential Oil - ROSE MAROC ABSOLUTE
ROSE MAROC ABSOLUTE
Rose Maroc (Rosa centifolia) - Morocco. Solvent extracted. Rosa centifolia oil (also known as Rose Maroc, French Rose, Attar of Rose or Rose Absolute) is solvent extracted from the fresh flower petals of the hybrid 'rose de mai'. Solvent extraction produces a concrete which is made up of fats, waxes, essential oils & other plant matter. The Absolute is then extracted from the concrete by way of using ethanol (alcohol) as a solvent. One of the most prized aromatherapy oils, it takes up to 30 roses to produce just one drop of Rose oil
It has a deep, rich, sweet, rosy-spicy, honeylike fragrance, and is generally agreed to be harmonising for the soul and spirit, is anti-depressive, and may help ease sorrow or grief. It opens the heart and soothes anger, fear and anxiety. It is used for many gynaecological conditions, also in combination with Melissa oil may be used to treat Herpes zoster and Herpes simplex. Rose oil has excellent emollient and hydrating properties which, accompanied with its stimulating and antiseptic properties, makes it ideal for all skincare, especially for mature, dry or sensitive skin. (also use Rose Water or Hydrosol, a by-product of the steam distillation process of Rose otto, in skincare for its soothing and mildly astringent properties). Rose oil is non-toxic, non-irritant and non-sensitising, but since it as an emmenogogue (promotes menstrual flow) it is best avoided during pregnancy.
AROMA QUEEN PREMIUM ESSENTIAL OILS
Our very special Premium Range is for anyone who appreciates quality: top grade oil & plant species, sought after country of origin, as well as many unusual, exotic and hard to find oils. We have searched far and wide to find the best quality oils - all are 100% pure undiluted plant based oils with no additives, synthetics or preservatives. We do NOT stock 'nature identical' or 'nature blend' oils - these are chemical concoctions of ingredients similar to what is usually found in a plant oil, and as such do not contain the same therapeutic qualities as pure oils.
Our 10ml Premium Essential Oils are packaged in Aromatherapy-safe cobalt blue glass with silver cap, complete with top ID label - a necessity for anyone with more than a couple of bottles in their collection. 4ml precious oils are supplied in a small dropper vial. 50 and 100ml bulk sizes are available for some oils, and are supplied in an amber glass bottle - if you require a bulk size and it isn't listed just send us an email and we'd be happy to give you a quote - contact us at [email protected]
If you're new to aromatherapy, or want to stock up on a few different oils, please take a look in our PACKS & KITS section for discounted Starter and Advanced packs.
SAFETY & USAGE
As with all essential oils, our oils must be diluted before application to skin, must NEVER be administered internally, and must always be kept out of the reach of children. Some must be avoided when pregnant (see individual listings), and others should not be applied to the skin before exposure to sunlight. Read the top section of each individual oil listing for warnings and contra-indications on that oil, and also head to our 'LEARN MORE' section for a quick introduction to aromatherapy if you are unfamiliar with essential oils. For anyone starting out we'd recommend even a basic introductory booklet on the subject (see our BOOKS section for a selection of booklets and textbooks).
Always remember, Aromatherapy is intended to complement, not replace traditional medicine.
