It’s no wonder that the rose enjoys almost legendary status among flowers -
even the ancient Babylonians cultivated rose blooms to produce scented ointments
from their petals. In early China roses were specifically grown in terraced
plots, as they knew about their regenerating effect. At the time of the great
Emperor Charlemagne, people used rose petals for gargling and for healing baths,
while distillation of precious rose oil was probably invented in Persia. The
essential oil was considered extremely valuable as its recovery was – and is –
enormously costly. It takes three million flowers to produce one litre of rose
oil. Today there are countless varieties and scents, with approximately 150
species of wild rose, almost two-thirds of them from Asia.
The inner values of rose plants are just as significant – and they are
particularly strong in their wild forms. The wild rose easily keeps its balance
between smoothness and robustness, demand and adaptability. When cultivated,
roses externalise their vitality and image of harmony through their singular
beauty and bewitching scent. Wild roses, on the other hand, internalise their
life forces and develop the inner essences which create valuable rosa mosqueta
With its many thorns, the wild rose reins itself in, restraining the impulses
that urge growth outward. In this way an inner balance is formed. The
demonstration of this harmony lies in the fruit of the wild rose – the rosehip
is in particular ‘wrapped up’ in its seeds. Our skin’s health also benefits from
the roses’ balancing skills. The core rosa mosqueta oil soothes and smoothes the
skin, while the scent of damask rose harmonises the mood.
We use the wild rose variety rosa mosqueta and her red rosehip fruit in our
skin care line for Wild Rose Face and Body. The seed oil of rosa mosqueta is one
of the most effective oils to smooth the skin. Especially after the age of 30,
when the skin is becoming gradually more demanding and dry, the strength of our
Wild Rose Skin Care range takes effect.
