Rose essential oil is one of the most prized oils due to its powerful properties. It tends to be one of the most expensive oils because it is so hard to extract– This oil is taken from the petals of the Rose flower through steam distillation, and it takes hundreds of pounds of rose petals to extract 1 drop of pure essential oil. Roses have been used for their healing and aromatic properties dating all the way back to the 10th century.
