essential oils: chinese rose

photo: sequoiagardens.wordpress.comA while back I decided to branch out from my favorite rose oils ~ Bulgarian and Turkish ~ and try Chinese rose essential oil from Mountain Rose Herbs.  The little bottle arrived and I didn’t know what to expect; turns out this more economical option to Bulgarian or Turkish rose oils smells amazing.
