Roses are by far the most sensorial of all flowers. They look beautiful, smell divine, and rosewater infused cupcakes taste like heaven! And nothing’s better than the joy of surprising someone with roses.
The rose aroma is known for its balancing and calming effects. It is believed that the aroma of essential oils can transmit messages to the limbic system (a brain region responsible for controlling emotions and influencing the nervous system). These messages affect biological factors such as heart rate, stress levels, blood pressure and breathing. Experience the scent of fresh cut roses with Jurlique Essence of Rose Roll-on Fragrance Oil.
Roses have a long history of therapeutic benefits, but today it is most noted for its benefits in skin care. Rose extract is partially beneficial for dry, sensitive or aging skin concerns. It provides a calming and astringent effect which helps diminish redness and skin irritation. A gentle mist of rosewater rehydrates and soothes skin any time of day. Try Jurlique Rosewater Balancing Mist.
Not only do the flowers hold special properties, but the Rose hips (the flowers which have swollen to seed) contain Vitamins A, B3, C, D and E, as well as essential fatty acids. These essential fatty acids quickly absorb into the skin help with tissue regeneration. Rose hip oil contains trans-retinoic acid which aids in skin regeneration plus it helps reduce fine lines and wrinkles. Get the benefits of Rose hips in JurliqueRose Moisture Plus Moisturizing Cream.

Bali….who wouldn’t want to be in Bali, especially now after a harsh winter, and enjoy a make-over of body and soul, getting pampered at one of the island spas and seeing your skin transformed by spa recipes that have made the natural beauty of Balinese women so famous. JUARA, the skincare authority that counts Amy Adams, Christina Hendriks, Brooke Shields, Julian Margulies and Rosario Dawson amongst its fans, has been spreading the word on beauty secrets from Bali with its line of natural spa products. With its latest launch, the Clove Flower & Turmeric Anti-Aging Serum, JUARA is bringing a brand new botanical anti-aging recipe to you that will brighten and smooth skin, bring out the glow and restore a visibly healthier, more vibrant complexion.
By now, many of us know that Turmeric is a powerful health ingredient not only when eaten but also when applied to the skin. Combine that with Clove Flower and other active botanicals including Palm Peptide, Goji, Sea Algae, Watermelon and Hyaluronic Acid and you get a unique ingredient complex that not only has a long history in Bali, but boasts active botanicals that have been clinically proven to deliver visible anti-aging results.
After a few applications, you will notice an increase in skin smoothness, luminosity, plumpness and firmness. And the results get even better with prolonged use. Then there is also how applying just a few drops of this serum make you feel. The Sea Algae not only provides soothing hydration and plumps up little lines, but it also imparts a feeling of instant freshness. The Turmeric, Clove Flower, Palm Peptide and Goji, while all very effective, are also very gentle, making the serum suitable for sensitive skin.
Women in Bali are just as eager to keep their skin youthful looking as they are around the world, and we at JUARA are excited to launch this product that is based on Balinese recipes at Skinstore.com because Skinstore is a true pioneer of unique brands and products just as JUARA is a pioneer of a unique beauty tradition using exotic, natural ingredients.

Essential Oil of Neroli is derived from the blossom of the Seville orange tree. Its feminine, fresh, youthful and pure fragrance is named after a noblewoman, the Duchess of Neroli. It stimulates cell regeneration and is said to promote restful sleep, primarily due to its soothing effect on the nervous system. A symbol of purity and at the same time reputed to be an aphrodisiac. This might explain why orange tree blossom is used in boutiques and garlands at weddings.
In Sicily, when the orange trees are in blossom, the island’s inhabitants are said to become “drunk on love!” Its yield is low: it takes one entire ton of orange blossom to produce just 2.2 lbs. of pure Neroli Essential Oil!
DECLÉOR’s Aromatherapy skincare for all skin types is based on this humble ingredient for its softening, relaxing, restoring and radiance enhancing properties. The star product within this collection is Aromessence Neroli Essential Serum, which is a multi-active serum of Essential Oils that treat all skin types exposed to daily stress. It’s 100% natural and pure and free from preservatives, mineral oil and colorants. We pair this skin balancing treatment with Hydra Floral, which protects the skin from pollution and dehydration.
