Warm, fine floral sensation with faint peppery and honey notes. Who doesn't love the scent? Rose essential oil is nectar extracted from different rose species, especially Rosa centifolia L. and Rosa damascena, through the steam distillation process. Citronellol (15.9-35.3%), geraniol (8.3-30.2%), nerol (4.0-9.6%), nonadecane (4.5-16.0%) are considered the main constituents of the rose essential oil. These components are renowned for a plethora of aromatherapeutic properties, including emotional and mental health benefits.
Research on rose essential oil uncovered multiple benefits. Let's deep dive into knowing about highlighted aromatherapeutic benefits.
- Stimulates "feel good" hormone - Studies suggest that the rose essential oil may help stimulate the brain to release endorphins, often called the "feel-good" hormone. Therefore, aromatherapy using rose oil could be an effective way to relieve pain. As per the 2015 study, researchers revealed that inhaling rose essential oil's aroma helped ease pain in postoperative children.
- Anxiety & stress-reducing effect - Many believe rose oil's enchanting, sweet, floral scent has a relaxing effect. Several studies found that rose essential oil reduced most anxiety symptoms, including blood pressure, heart rates, breathing rates, cortisol, and blood oxygen levels.
- Antidepressant - It is thought that rose oil promotes the release of the chemical dopamine - a chemical messenger. Dopamine plays a role in feeling pleasure and has a pivotal role in the uniquely human ability to think and plan. Researchers believe that this chemical helps to relieve the symptoms of depression. A 2012 study examined the use of rose aromatherapy for pregnant women during labor. Women who used the aromatherapy foot bath showed lower levels of anxiety and depression.
- Reduces menstrual cramps - Aromatherapeutic massage with rose oil effectively relieves the discomfort of menstruation (a.k.a, primary dysmenorrhea). In 2012 a pilot study showed that the menstrual pain was significantly lower in the rose oil group than in control groups.
In addition to its aromatherapeutic properties, rose essential oil helps stimulate sensual pleasure, balance, and soothe skin due to its astringent and anti-inflammatory effects. Moreover, it is renowned as a potent fragrance component in the perfumery industry.
