Aphrodite, the goddess of sexual love and beauty, was born from the foam of the sea arising from the genitals of Uranus. The Goddess of Love and Beauty was called 'Astarte' in more ancient times, by many scholars who believe that her cult is Semitic rather than Greek in origin. She has many incarnations and her power transcends culture and time. Her presence is as real today as it was in ancient times. She is also known as 'Maiden of the Sea', 'Astarte', 'Ishtar', 'Diana'. Her Roman counterpart was 'Venus'.
Rosa Affinis Rubiginosa or commonly known in Chile as Rosa Mosqueta is a truly remarkable oil with outstanding skin rejuvenating properties. Rosehip seed oil has been used for generations by the Andean Indians of Chile who recognize its skin healing benefits. Rosehip seed oil is high in essential unsaturated fatty acids, namely oleic, linoleic, and linolenic. They are called "essential" because our body is not able to reproduce them. Rosehip seed oil is also high in vitamin A and retinoic acid, a natural constituent similar to Retin~A. Retinoic acid was initially introduced for the treatment of acne, however, it is now used widely for sundamage and to improve pigmentation and fine texture of the skin. Lightly massaged into the skin, this oil acts on the cell membranes, supports their immune reaction, and initiates their regeneration. Rosehip seed oil penetrates the skin's upper layers very quickly making it a superb moisturizer. It supports the keratin migration cycle that is responsible for the natural regeneration of skin cells. After using Rosehip oil there is an increase of renewed cells in the epidermis. The cells also produce more collagen & elastin, The natural process of removing old skin and cleaning hair follicles is enhanced giving a clearer appearance. Rosehip seed oil has remarkable skin rejuvenating properties, it is recommended for people who spend much of their time in the sun as it reduces the appearance of wrinkles and premature aging often associated with exposure to the sun.
Gorgeous fresh Rosa damascena, Rosa centifolia, Rosa Canina and Rosa rubiginosa petals have been infused in organic sweet almond oil three times over to extract all the therapeutic and magical properties of the rose flowers. Along with helping the skin recover from sun damage, Almond oil as a skin moisturizer will soften and smooth the skin. According to the February 2010 issue of "Complementary Therapies In Clinical Practice," almond oil has emollient properties, which gives it the ability to rejuvenate and soften the skin, which will even out the skin tone and improve the complexion. The author, Z. Ahmad, from the Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Salisbury General Hospital, also states that almond oil has been shown to reduce scarring that occurs with surgery, and should be considered as a possible post~operative treatment. Almond oil is acquired from the almond seed, which contains protein, vitamin E and B vitamins as well as essential minerals, healthy fats and protein.

The Rose is a feminine herb, synonymous with love, sacred to Venus and associated with the element of water. Working with Rose is ideal for getting in touch with the source of Shakti within. It may also be used in fertility rites and to call or welcome new souls into our world. Rose may be used to manifest abundance in a general or specific sense and strengthens the heart. "She who is the beauty of the green earth, and the white moon among the stars, and the mystery of the waters, and the desire of the heart of man, calls unto thy soul. Arise, and come unto Her. For She is the soul of nature, who gives life to the universe. from Her all things proceed, and unto Her all things must return; and before Her face, beloved of gods and men, let thine innermost divine self be enfolded in the rapture of the infinite. Let Her worship be within the heart that rejoiceth; for behold, all acts of love and pleasure are Her rituals." Doreen Valiente
