Rich, luscious and cooling. Great for hot flashes, mood enhancement, and emotional energy! This is a beautiful co-distilled of Rosa damascena and Pelargouium Roseum X Asperum. The delicate Rose petals from Belgium/South Africa are unsprayed and the Geranium from South Africa is organic. This rare combination has all the qualities of both the soft and intriguing Rose and the slightly woody and uplifting Geranium. Co-distilled means that they take part Rose Petals and Part Geranium distilling them together.
Rose is known for many other therapeutic effects such as hormone balancing during menopause, cooling for hot flashes (use the mist), calming, cleansing, and purifying the reproductive system. It can also be emotionally uplifting and a tonic for the nervous system.

A delightful aroma that is described as one of the "mothering" personalities-a person who is always ready to take care of someone or something. Easy to be around!

Rose has no known specific safety issues.
Some literature advises to avoid Geranium during early pregnancy. Robert Tisserand states in his book Essential Oil Safety that these concerns are due to high oral doses and Geranium oil is unlikely to cause problems when used within the doses appropriate for dermal (skin) application in aromatherapy.
The suggested shelf life is 4-5 years.
