Facial Oil Details and Disclaimer

The base ingredients in my botanical facial oils are exactly the same with respect to the cold pressed carrier oils.

What is the difference between Rose Oil and Neroli Oil when it comes to skin care?

There really is not a lot of difference - you may want to choose dependent upon the aroma:

Neroli possesses a light sweet floral tone with a faint green crispness while at the same time is rather dusty and tobacco like.  A number of studies have been conducted with Neroli pointing to its profound effect on stress, anxiety, fear and its ability to relax patients in hospital settings.

There is a significant amount of research indicating that the scent of Neroli has positive effects on stress and anxiety. Neroli oil is relatively high in Linalool a highly fragrant constituent that occurs in many aromatic plants. Linalool is said to have anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant properties,  however, there is no empirical evidence that Neroli oil possesses any skin care properties or protection. In my opinion the it is the carrier oils (cold pressed vegetable oils) that are used in skin care products that possess properties which help to soothe, hydrate and improve the texture and elasticity of the skin. The addition of Neroli oil due to it's delicate and sweet scent is clearly a lovely choice when skin care formulators want to add a natural aroma to a product.

Rose otto’s fragrance is extremely complex sweet, citrusy, like a peppery tea and dusty. The psychological effects of Rose otto are similar to Rose absolute.

Rose otto is much more suited to skin care products, as it is not processed with solvents. Beauty care chemists and indicate that the unique antioxidants of citronellol and geraniol which occur naturally in rose oil help to diminish the signs of aging and slows down free radical damage and may be beneficial in supporting broken capillaries, healing scars and soothing skin that is inflamed and dry.

While striving to be completely transparent when it comes ingredients, I cannot guarantee that every ingredient will work for every person. Therefore I encourage my clients to read through all of the ingredients before you purchase as I do not offer a refund if you have an adverse reaction to any of our products.

I recommend that you test all of my products on a small area of skin to check for any possible allergic reactions. Apply a small amount to the skin on your inner arm. If redness, burning, itching or irritation occurs, stop using the product immediately and wash with soap and water to clean the affected area and if necessary seek advice from a medical practitioner.
