Rose Essential Oil

“By any other name would smell as sweet” wrote Shakespeare, the sweet, heady fragrance of rose is famous as the symbol of true love. Candied rose petals, rose jam, and rosewater have been eaten and drunk since Roman times — what bliss to eat this divine aroma as well as be performed with it. Rose essential oil is the queen of essential oils, a deeply feminine aroma.
