Rose Ointment

February 16, 2019

If you’re looking for a pure skin cream, you’ll love Rose Ointment.

Rose Ointment all-natural cream protects and nourishes your skin with the benefits of mink oil (characteristically similar to the body’s natural oils), lecithin, lanolin, sesame seed oil, and therapeutic-grade essential oils for enhanced effectiveness.

Rose Ointment is ideal for dry, cracked skin, or for keeping any kind of skin silky and smooth. It works particularly well when applied over essential oils when you want to lock in the benefits of essential oils and prevent their evaporation.

When injured skin is healing, there is nothing better than Rose Ointment cream to protect scabs and keep them soft, allowing natural healing to take place faster.

Caution: Not recommended initially for heat-stressed skin but is an excellent way to protect scabs and keep them soft.

What Are the Benefits?

Rose has been used for the skin for thousands of years.  In Arabia, the physician Avicenna first distilled rose oil.  He eventually wrote an entire book on the healing attributes of rose water (derived from the distillation of rose essential oil).

Rose is known for preventing and reducing scarring, it’s gentle, anti-inflammatory action and for balancing and elevating the mind.

How to use:

Apply to the skin as needed. Can be used with or without essential oils. If essential oils are used, apply oils to skin first.
