Rose (Rosa damascena)
A symbol of love, roses are widely grown for their beauty and fragrance. Rose essential oil encourages happiness and contentment and is considered a “heart opener.” Rose EO also assists in processing grief, and specifically for grieving the loss of a loved one.
Drop a Rose essential oil on your fingers and anoint on your heart chakra (between breasts) to increase self-love, love for others, kindness and calm the spirits and vibes. This is also useful to reduce the feeling of restlessness and anxiety. Then rub the leftover oil from your finger on your palm and inhale slowly. Pause a few seconds for silence before you start again with your activity.
