10 Skin and Hair Uses of Rose Essential Oil You Should Know

One of the most cherished and treasured oils in the world, Rose Essential Oil is extracted by steam distillation from the rose petal. Labeled as an aromatherapy oil, Rose Essential Oil is gentle and has a calming, mood lifting scent.

Rose Essential Oil contains a high level of potassium and iron, Vitamin A, B, C, and K that works hand-in-hand in keeping the skin and hair healthy as much as possible.

Below are some of the skin and hair uses of this rich essential oil:


Rose Essential Oil Skin Uses

Fights Acne

The above-mentioned ingredients help keep the skin healthy and rejuvenated. Plus, Rose Essential Oil is rich in antimicrobial agents that fight acne-causing bacteria (P.acne).

Helps Heal Scars and Wounds

Do you have some visible scars and wounds you’ll like to hide? Just combine some few drops of Rose Essential Oil with your chosen carrier oil and apply the oil to the affected area. This will allow clotting to occur faster, which heals the wound faster. And the antioxidant in the essential oil enhances the skin’s ability to produce new cells, which is key to fading scars.

Reduce Skin Inflammation

If you have skin redness, swelling, acne or pimples on your skin, Rose Essential Oil will help bring instant relief to the discomfort you feel. Why? Rose Essential Oil is rich in anti-inflammatory ingredients that suppress the skin’s dryness and irritation.

Helps Calm the Body and Mind

By combining some few drops of Rose Essential Oil with any of your skincare products, you won’t only feel a rejuvenated skin but a calm and relax mind as well. Hence, Rose Essential Oil will help you overcome stress and anxiety.

Reduce Aging Signs

Rose Essential Oil stimulates elastin production by the fibroblast, which fades aging signs like fine lines, wrinkles, and expression lines on the skin.

Tones and Moisturize the Skin

Rose Essential Oil lifts and tones the skin so that it’s free from breakouts and other skin blemishes. Plus, it helps your skin to be supple by moisturizing it.


Rose Essential Oil Hair Uses

Promotes Hair Growth

Rose Essential Oil is loaded with vitamins (A, E, and K) and minerals that strengthen hair root, which leads to more hair growth.

Adds Shine to Your Hair

Are you fighting dull hair? Add some few drops of Rose Essential Oil to your leave-in conditional. Apply it to your hair, leave it for some minutes or overnight before washing it off. You’ll see a remarkable improvement in the way your hair looks.

Adds Volume to Your Hair

Rose Essential Oil is rich in potassium, which stimulates blood flow to your scalp thereby supplying it with the needed hair growth nutrients. This not only makes you grow longer hair but also to grow a thicker, softer hair.

Prevent Dry Scalp and Hair

Rose Essential Oil ensures that your scalp and hair are well moisturized, preventing dry scalp and hair problems. Just add 4 drops of Rose Essential Oil to 2 tablespoons of castor oil. Warm the oil a bit (see hot oil treatment), and use it for your hot oil treatment.


Rose Essential Oil Side Effects

  • If you are allergic to rose, it is much likely that Rose Essential Oil will leave you with some reactions too. So, I suggest you conduct a patch test before using this essential oil in your skin and hair care products.
  • Some people may feel a burning sensation, irritations, skin redness, rashes, and so on. If you notice any of these negative signs, just discontinue the use of this oil.


Rose Essential Oil Precaution

  • Not recommended for nursing and pregnant women
  • Do not use the undiluted Rose Essential Oil. It may burn your skin and scalp. Rather, mix it with your chosen carrier oil.
  • Keep the oil away from your eye area.
