Cautions / Safety Data
Avoid during pregnancy. Do not use on the skin full strength. Always dilute in appropriate carriers before use. Not for internal use. If suffering from serious medical conditions, consult a qualified health professional, experienced in the use of essential oils.
Rose oil must be cultivated at dawn well before sunrise and processed immediately to obtain the maximum yield of oil. It is one of the highest priced oils to obtain due to the substantial number of petals required to produce a relatively small amount of oil.
The trace element B-damasceone is found in the approximate amount of .14 % but is responsible for up to 70% of its characteristic rose aroma.
Essential oils are not meant to be a replacement for traditional medical treatment of diseases and conditions. When in doubt, please consult a physician.
