The scent you smell when breathing in the delicious aroma of a rose is the essence, or essential oil, of Rose. Some plants give off an aroma; others do not. The reason why only some plants have an essential oil remains one of Mother Nature’s mysteries.
The essential oils in our bottles are substances that have been extracted from the plant. These oils are highly concentrated. It takes approximately 50 rose flowers to create just a single drop of Rose oil!
Because they are so concentrated, essential oils are precious. Even used sparingly, they can offer immense therapeutic benefit.
