Rose Otto Single Note ~ rosa damascena

Spotlight: Try Our Bulgarian Rose Otto Single Note

February is the month of love and for us here at SunRose, nothing says love more than Bulgarian Rose Otto (Rosa damascena). Rose Otto has the scent of fresh roses that we want to bury our faces in and breathe deeply to inhale their exotic aroma. The deep, sweet, flowery scent is an exquisite perfume that brings us to a very special place where emotions are soothed. This is an ultra feminine oil that may enable a woman to have positive feelings about herself. We especially like to have this oil around in times of grief or depression.

History

Rose has long been a symbol of love and purity. The petals were strewn at weddings to ensure a happy marriage and they are still used in many weddings today. The story of St. Dominic tells us he was visited by the Virgin Mary in a mystical vision where he received the first rosary. Each bead was scented with roses to aid with meditation and prayer.

organic lemon essential oil

Spotlight: Organic Lemon Essential Oil

Lemon essential oil – organic Citrus limonum – is another wonderful citrus to assist us through winter. Its fresh and sharp scent is so very refreshing. Use lemon essential oil as a top note in any blend to help bring clarity of thought. Lemno is also a popular flavoring agent in perfumes and food, though in food recipes I always use the whole fruit. Lemon is also an adaptogen; it maye be energizing or assist in sleep, depending on how it is used.

At SunRose Aromatics, we have several diffuser blends that contain Lemon essential oil, including Sensory Delight and Sweet Dreams. But why not try creating your own blend? Try it with Grapefruit and Peppermint for an energizing blend. For a more relaxing blend, try it with Lavender.

Short story: A SunRose client loved Grapefruit, so we explained to her that it must be diluted before being applied to the skin. We asked her to please be sure she diluted this oil and to be sure not to wear it on her skin if she was going to spend time in the sun. A week late, we received a call from her and she said, “I used the grapefruit before I went tanning. Now everything tastes metallic.” “Hmm,” I replied, “What did you learn from this experience?” This was certainly a hard lesson to learn, so we ask that all our customers avoid learning it the hard way. Dilute, dilute, dilute!
