Make sure to read the entire article to learn more about doTERRA's newest limited edition product. 

About Rose Essential Oil

Rose essential oil, scientifically known as Rosa damascena oil, is a highly concentrated extract derived from the petals of the rose flower. This oil is often referred to as the "queen of essential oils." The rose plant has a long history and is considered a symbol of love, beauty, and luxury.

The use of rose essential oil dates back thousands of years, with ancient civilizations such as the Egyptians, Greeks, and Romans incorporating it into their rituals and ceremonies. Cleopatra, renowned for her beauty and allure, was said to have used rose oil as part of her skincare regimen.
I don’t know about you, but roses purchased from commercial floral shops just don’t smell the way I remember from childhood. However, when I crack open a bottle of doTERRA’s Rose essential oil, it evokes memories of the sweet and delightful scent I remember from Grandma's rose garden. This is one of the many reasons Rose essential oil is one of my favorites.

Sourcing and Extracting Rose Essential Oil

doTERRA sources its Rose essential oil from Bulgaria. Bulgaria is known for its high-quality rose cultivation and extraction methods. doTERRA takes pride in working directly with local farmers and producers to ensure sustainable and ethical practices throughout the production process. By partnering with these trusted growers, doTERRA ensures that their Rose essential oil is of the highest quality.
Rose essential oil is a labor-intensive and expensive oil to produce, as it requires over 10,000 hand-picked Bulgarian roses to create a small five-milliliter bottle. Many Rose oils on the market are heavily adulterated, but when you purchase Rose oil from doTERRA you can be sure of its purity, potency, and ethical sourcing.
Due to the large number of petals needed, rose essential oil is considered one of the most expensive oils in the world.


Benefits of Rose Essential Oil

Rose essential oil offers a myriad of benefits including glowing complexion, immune support, emotional wellness, and hormone health.

Glowing Complexion

Rose essential oil is a natural emollient that helps hydrate and nourish the skin. Its rich composition of vitamins, antioxidants, and fatty acids promotes a healthy and radiant complexion.
The rejuvenating properties of rose essential oil make it a valuable ingredient in anti-aging skincare products. It can help diminish the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and age spots, promoting a more youthful-looking skin.
Rose essential oil offers remarkable benefits for the skin and complexion. When combined with other floral oils, it helps rejuvenate and enhance radiance. doTERRA incorporates Rose oil in some of their skincare products, such as the Immortelle Serum, which combines rose with frankincense, sandalwood, myrrh, and lavender. You can also personalize your skincare routine by adding a few drops of rose oil to your favorite moisturizer or hydrating cream. Rose oil is versatile and can be used for stubborn skin irritations by rolling it directly on the affected area or combining it with tea tree oil.
You can also make your own beauty products like sugar scrubs and lotion bars using Rose oil.
Immune Support
In addition to its skincare benefits, rose oil is also known for its immune-boosting properties; this is not often talked about, but whenever I travel, I am sure to bring my Rose essential oil with me.
Rose essential oil offers immune support through various mechanisms. It contains antioxidants that protect cells from damage caused by unstable molecules called free radicals, which can weaken the immune system. By neutralizing these free radicals, rose oil may enhance immune function. Additionally, it has anti-inflammatory properties that can help reduce inflammation, which can negatively affect the immune system. Rose oil also aids in stress reduction, as stress can suppress immunity. Its calming properties may help lower stress levels and indirectly support immune health.
It can be rolled on the back of the spine for immune support. If you are wanting to boost your immune system try rolling on Rose oil and taking On Guard capsules.  
Emotional Wellness
Rose oil doesn't just smell good, it also holds significant emotional benefits. Referred to as the "oil of divine love," it emits a higher vibrational energy than any other oil. It possesses powerful healing properties for the heart, assisting individuals in connecting with divine love and grace. Whether you're dealing with grief or seeking emotional support, rose oil can be a valuable companion.
“[Rose essential oil] is a powerful healer of the heart and supports individuals in reaching heavenward and connecting with divine love, it teaches the essential need for divine grace and intervention in the healing process.”
The quote above comes from the Essential Emotions Handbook which is a user-friendly guide for helping you take charge of your emotional health with essential oils. 
Hormone Health
Rose essential oil can also support hormone health. It is believed to have balancing properties that can help regulate hormone levels and promote hormonal equilibrium. Using Rose oil topically or aromatically can help alleviate symptoms related to hormonal imbalances, such as mood swings, irritability, and menstrual discomfort.

Rose essential oil can also be used to soothe menstrual discomfort by massaging the oil into the abdomen and lower back. It can also be applied to the back of the neck along with Peppermint essential oil to help reduce hot flashes. I like to roll it on my thyroid to support healthy hormones.
Try creating your own signature scent with Rose oil in order to get the hormonal health benefits while also smelling like a goddess. You can experiment by layering it with other oils like Madagascar Vanilla or doTERRA’s Whisper blend. The possibilities are endless, and you can find your unique combination that resonates with your senses.

Rose Touch

doTERRA offers an alternative to the 5mL Rose essential oil—a diluted version called Rose Touch. This blend combines Rose oil with fractionated coconut oil. It offers the benefits of Rose essential oil in a convenient and user-friendly form. It is often preferred by those who want to use Rose oil topically without the need for additional dilution or measuring. However, if you prefer more versatility and control over the concentration, or if you plan to use rose oil in diffusers or for DIY projects, then get the 5 mL Rose oil. Rose Touch is also a bit more affordable since it is pre-diluted.



If you notice that your rose oil has solidified or crystallized, don't worry; it's perfectly normal. Unadulterated rose oil tends to crystallize at lower temperatures. To restore it to a liquid state, simply warm the bottle in your hands. This process is similar to coconut oil, which solidifies when cooled and melts when warmed.

Introducing the Rose Duet: Limited Time Offering (June, 2023)

doTERRA recently unveiled an exciting limited-edition product called the Rose Duet. This set was created and launched in celebration of doTERRA’s 15th birthday. The Rose Duet includes a hydrosol mist and a nourishing facial oil. The hydrosol mist is made by steam distilling rose petals to capture the sweat that comes off, creating a unique hydrosol. It's important to note that this hydrosol is different from rose water and is challenging to produce due to the risk of mold. After 15 years, doTERRA has finally perfected it to their rigorous standards. The hydrosol mist can soothe the skin, support healthy inflammatory levels, and provide hydration and balance. It can be used as a toner or midday refreshing mist.

The set also includes the Moringa rose oil, which is a nourishing facial oil combining Moringa oil and rose. This oil is hydrating and moisturizing without leaving a greasy feeling. It is suitable for all skin types. The oil can be used under makeup, alone, or as part of a nighttime skincare routine. When applied, it gives a tingling sensation that is different from the tingling caused by peppermint oil. It feels like it's dancing with your cells, providing a unique experience – just try this product and you will know exactly what I am talking about. I hope this product becomes a permanent offering and not just a limited edition offering as it has become one of my new favorite skincare products.

Rose essential oil is a precious and versatile oil. Its enchanting fragrance, coupled with its numerous benefits for emotional well-being, skincare, and immune support, makes it a valuable addition to any wellness routine. Whether you seek relaxation, rejuvenation, or a touch of luxury, Rose essential oil offers a holistic experience for the mind, body, and soul.
