It 5.5 million roses to make one liter of rose oil, making this oil one of the most expensive oils in the world. Often referred to as “liquid gold,”each drop of rose essential oil is made from 30 roses.
Rose is traditionally associated with the heart and emotions, soothing heart-ache and sadness while encouraging positive feelings of love and understanding. This oil is also great for mature or dull skin as it encourages healthy circulation, promotes cell regeneration, and supports an overall vibrant complexion.
Lemon Verbena is a rare and costly essential oil due to it’s complex and seasonally-dependent cultivation process. Because of this, it is often falsified or adulterated with citronella or lemongrass in the marketplace to mimic its scent without the price. Within our tiny bottle you have only straight-up pure Lemon Verbena essential oil.
