Rose has long been valued for its deep, rich, sweet, rosy, honey-like fragrance. It takes 30 hand-picked blossoms or 2,000 petals to yield one drop of rose oil. The healing virtues of the rose have been known since antiquity and still fulfill an important role in Eastern medicine. Rose oil is used for a wide range of disorders including digestive and menstrual problems, headaches and nervous tension, liver congestion, poor circulation, and skin complaints. Rose is considered useful in the treatment of: mental fatigue and exhaustion; anxiety; nervous tension; insomnia; headache; aging skin; dry, hard, or sensitive skin; inflamed skin; rashes; eczema; radiation burns; swellings; bruises; broken thread veins.
Bergamot. Fresh, sweet-fruity, and slightly floral bergamot is grown near the Mediterranean, including Southern Italy, Sicily, and Spain. Bergamot oil contains some interesting substances such as the ester, linalyl acetate, which is also a main constituent of lavender oil. This gives bergamot an anti-inflammatory action. Bergamot is considered useful in the treatment of: stress-related symptoms; depression; nervous tension; anxiety; insomnia; stagnant flow of chi (vital force); pain; varicose veins; stress-related skin disorders; oily skin; acne; eczema; psoriasis; seborrhea; fungal skin infection; cuts and wounds.
Roman Chamomile is said to contain the highest ester content of any essential oil, approximately 85%. Fruity-herbaceous chamomile also contains azulene which is anti-inflammatory, calming, and antibacterial. Roman chamomile is considered useful in the treatment of: anxiety; tension; depression; insomnia; headaches including migraine; muscle pain related to nervous conditions; PMS; tendinitis; sprains; dry, sensitive skin; itching; eczema; psoriasis; broken skin capillaries; puffiness of the skin; congested pores; sunburn.
