The fresh, wild rose has been used for thousands of years to heal and scent the skin. The ancient Egyptians were known to boil whole roses to create balms that would protect their skin from the harsh and dry desert conditions. Aristocratic Roman women created rose petal poultices, believing the rose to be a powerful tool to combat aging. The Persians invented steam distillation to extract the precious oil for skin and medieval women treated their scars and scented their bodies with the luxurious rose water and oil.
