Our Cistus essential oil, also known as Rock Rose, comes from steam distilled flowering tops and leaves of Cistus ladaniferus. Other products from this plant are Labdanum absolute from solvent extracted resin and Cistus essential oil from steam distilled resin.   Depending on the extraction method the volatile constituents that determine aroma-therapeutic quality will vary greatly between the three, as will aroma.  For aromatherapy purposes we recommend this premium quality Cistus essential oil from traditional method steam distilled fresh stems and leaves. 

Cistus essential oil, known for its remarkable wound healing abilities, is also prized for its meditative effect where it is said to slow the mind of clutter to allow for centering and deeper concentration. Cistus is a very powerful oil to use with aging skin whereby it offers considerable astringent activity for toning and tightening. In aromatherapy Cistus is widely used in anti-aging skin care, an anti-inflammatory for arthritis and painful joints, and anti-spasmotic for menstrual related issues.

With slow healing skin disorders like psoriasis, eczema, infected and inflamed skin conditions, blend with Chamomile Blue. Try pairing Cistus with Elemi or Neroli in a base of Rose Hip oil for a remarkable anti-aging facial oil! In facial blends we recommend using 1-2% essential oil; see our Dilution Chart for more info.

In natural perfume our Cistus essential oil adds a sweet, warm, comforting amber-like aroma that also serves as an excellent base note fixative in accords.

I love how this combines in my favorite blend, with vetiver, benzoin and orange. It adds a note that is somehow floral and masculine (does that make it unisex?) At the same time.

Excellent for rhinitis
For the past two weeks, I've been living with the cold-induced post nasal drip cough from Hell. I couldn't talk without coughing up a storm. I was using multiple products over the counter from our local pharmacy and these provided minimal relief. I steam inhaled Cistus Rock with another oil for rhinitis - for the first time I can talk without coughing. My post nasal drip is reduced so it's no longer an annoyance. Amazing!
