ROSE OTTO – THE QUEEN OF ESSENTIAL OILS

I have chosen to highlight this oil for International Women’s Day 2022, as the oil is considered the ‘Queen of Oils’ and seemed along with its properties so appropriate to celebrate all things female!

Rose Otto, Rosa damascena is steam distilled from rose petals, many hundreds of petals for a relatively small amount of oil. This is somewhat reflected in the price, but I tell you now, it’s well worth it!

Rosa damascena is a hardy deciduous shrub with a height of approx. 2 metres. There are some 250 differing species of Rose with over 10,000 hybrids. Only three are commonly distilled to produce an oil, with Rosa damascena being the most beloved. Distilled since the 16th century the Bulgarian rose is considered to produce the most exquisite essential oil.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF MASSAGE DURING PREGNANCY?

Don’t wait till your last trimester to experience the benefits of massage during your pregnancy.

In my previous blog I talked about making you feel comfortable for a pregnancy massage, here I explain what the benefits are of a pregnancy massage for you and your baby!

The effects of massage are accumulative so by finding a practitioner early on in your pregnancy you can also have the added benefit of building a rapport with your therapist who can  then help you through each stage of your magical pregnancy  journey. I offer evening appointments so you could always come after work in your first and second trimesters.
