old garden rose healing oil
As a dry-hand solution from all the hand washing & hand sanitisers during the beginning of the pandemic, Alie started experimenting with DIY, non-toxic remedies. Her inspiration came from the Ledgelet’s old-growth, subtropical gardens, and her hidden talent for gardening its abundance of roses, of which there are several varieties. Some bushes are over 75 years old.
The healing oil is made from LCC roses, Spanish organic olive oil, and calming essential oils. The remedy / recipe worked so well, friends and family asked for more.
We often think of the rose as simply a beauty plant to be enjoyed in the garden, however it has many healing benefits; rose has natural anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, and antifungal properties; plus it is full of natural oils and Vitamin C, which hydrate and replenish dull, dry skin.
Using olive oil for your skin hosts a slew of benefits. Olive oil contains antioxidants that fight free-radical damage, as well as an ingredient called squalene, which is extremely hydrating. It's been used on skin since ancient times—even Cleopatra was a fan. Olive oil is a high-performing plant oil, and is filled with emollient, moisturising properties. In its pure form with humectants, it is naturally made to preserve moisture. O.O. can be ruined from excessive heat, light, or oxygen; please store it in a cool area with a tightly sealed lid (12 months).
Essential Oils are life! So, we added a blend of these calming essential oils to elevate the healing experience: (lavender, tangerine, bergamot, cypress, geranium, frankincense, chamomile). All are 100% plant derived and paraben-free.
Our Old Garden Rose Healing Oil can be used to remedy all the rough bits. Hands, Feet, Baby Bumps, Hair, Eyebrows, Lips. The list goes on. (*Not recommended for infants w/out doctor permission).
Old Garden Rose is defined as any rose that existed before 1867. After that, the “modern” rose came into existence when the first hybrid tea rose — “La France” — was discovered growing in a garden. Today, about 80% of all roses grown are of the modern classes of this rose. (source: google)
