Stop and smell the roses – the benefits of the rose fragrance
When life gets a little too rushed, it is time to “stop and smell the roses”. This simple moment can do more than we realise.
‘stop and smell the roses’
Taking a moment in a busy day to appreciate the simpler and beautiful things in life that are often right under our noses, will help you reconnect with what’s important to you.
At Kosmea we take that idea one step further. We use the rose fragrance in some of our products for you to enjoy while caring for your skin.
The rose scent has been loved by many for generations
In lotions, perfumes, draw liners, room scents and more, it often brings with it memories that put a smile on our face. From smelling roses in your grandmother’s or mother’s garden, to the first rose you received from a loved one.
The beautiful fragrance of rose is used in numerous Kosmea products as it harmonises the senses. The smell of roses is relaxing and rejuvenating because it encourages us to breathe deeply and slowly.
An uplifting scent may be more beneficial to your health than you think
Smell is the strongest of our senses and can cause immediate reactions as it is directly linked to our emotions.
A pleasant smell like that of the rose, can reduce stress and lower the heart rate.
The rose aroma has been shown to have anti-depressant benefits as it is traditionally used to calm and uplift. This makes it the perfect mood-lifting scent to use throughout the day by spraying a rose scented mist, or using a moisturiser with a rose fragrance.
We use the fresh, floral scent Rosa Damascena in the following Kosmea products:
- Hydrating Rosewater Mist – to revitalise tired skin, pop it in your handbag and use through the day.
- Rose Hand Cream– Damascus Rose Flower Water combined with Rosewood Oil in luxuriously rich formulation.
- Replenishing Moisture Cream – an intensely hydrating face cream for daily use which you will love to pamper your skin with
- Purifying Cream Cleanser – our luxuriously creamy, vitamin boosting cleanser.
And remember to combine this with Kosmea’s Certified Organic Rosehip Oil
Rosehip Oil helps many skin conditions such as dry and sensitive skin, eczema prone skin and dermatitis. It reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles as well as scars.
