Our organically crafted Rock Rose Essential Oil, also known as Cistus Essential Oil, is steam distilled from the leaves and twigs of the flowering the Cistus ladaniferus plant, with white flowers that have distinct red markings, cultivated in Spain. This powerful fixative has a deep, diffusive, herbaceous, balsamic-resinous aroma with sweet, honey-like undertones.

As with Labdanum Absolute, Cistus Essential Oil is also considered a substitute for Ambergris (from sperm whales) and, in combination with Ambrette, a substitute for true Musk (from musk deer). This aromatic gem is interwoven into Corsican tradition, primarily for meditation, respiratory assistance, and skincare.


The analgesic and anti-inflammatory properties of Cistus Essential Oil work together to soothe sore muscles and joints and help ease unwanted abdominal cramping that oftentimes comes with a menstrual cycle. Along with helping manage pain and inflammation, Rock Rose Essential Oil is deeply skin nourishing and a lovely choice when looking to heal old scars, among other skin challenges. This essential oil is also a fantastic lung support and a strong choice when looking to reduce a spastic cough or help clear lung congestion.

Emotionally and energetically, Cistus (Rockrose) Oil has cooling and drying energy to help relax the mind, soothe anxiety and depression, and to evoke calmness and composure. A well-known oil used to inspire sensual moods, this unique essential oil can be used in a bath or diluted in a massage oil to celebrate a loved one.
