Ever wonder why roses are given on Valentines Day?

Rose oilThe most exclusive of all oils, Rose Oil, heralded for its emotional and psychological benefits. It is a natural anti-depressant and aphrodisiac. No wonder the rose is the choice of valentines! 70% of the world’s Rose Oil is produced in Bulgaria. Harvesting of the flowers is done by hand in the morning before the sun rises and the oil must be distilled the same day. A very fragile caring process very fitting to the purpose it was made ~ to look after our hearts. Interestingly it takes 60,000 roses to produce 1 ounce of Rose Oil. Happy Valentine’s Day
