WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF ROSE OIL?




Everyone loves roses because they are beautiful, but did you know there is more to this flower than just a pretty bouquet arrangement? I don't think I have ever met someone who does not like the natural scent of rose oil. The warm, deep floral, slightly spicy, rich, honey-like odor of rose oil makes it a favorite amongst essential oils.


According to some research, the essential oil derived from the rose plant has a wide range of potential benefits. Some of these benefits include but are not limited to pain relief, anxiety, stress relief, menstrual discomfort relief, increased libido, anti-bacterial and antifungal properties, and it also helps ease depressive symptoms.


Although a lot of the research done on rose oil is based on small trials, some clear physiological and psychological benefits have emerged from those studies.


Before using any alternative or complementary treatment, talk to your doctor about any current medical conditions, possible drug interactions, or side effects.



Rose Oil helps ease pain

In a 2015 study, a group of children who had just been operated inhaled either almond oil as a placebo or rose oil. The children who inhaled rose oil had a decrease in their pain levels. Researchers believe the rose oil may have stimulated the brain to release endorphins, often called the "feel-good" hormone. These feel-good hormones can make you feel better, which in return can also reduce pain. Based on this specific research, they concluded that rose oil could be used to reduce physical pain associated with surgery.
