Observations and Anecdotal Information

Rock rose is found throughout the Mediterranean, and was  called “Rose of Sharon” in biblical texts.  Sharon, in this case is not a person, but refers to a plain in the south of Jordan where the cistus plant grows in abundance.  Its use as a sacred perfume, and medicine has been well documented since biblical times.

Rock rose essential oil also stops bleeding.  It can be used to stop hemorrhage, and to relieve hemorrhoids.  It helps relieve hematoma, bruises, and blood spots under the skin, and can be applied topically for that purpose.

One of the most well known uses for Rock Rose is as a rejuvenating treatment  for aged or wrinkled skin.  It is one of the herbal treatments that could be called “face lift in a bottle”, for its ability to turn back the clock and rejuvenate skin with consistent use.  For this reason, it is used in many recipes and formulas for aging skin, including cosmetics and facial cremes.
