Cistus, also called rock-rose for the resemblance of its dainty, papery five petal flowers to wild rose blossoms, gives out an essential oil with a delicious aroma. Sweet and fresh, lemony with a hint of honey, tenacious enough but not overwhelming, it blends well with all the citrus oils, the flowers such as geranium, lavender and ylang ylang, the spices such as cardamon, ginger and frankincense. It provides a base note which anchors the citrus top notes which would otherwise evaporate too quickly.
Cistus is invaluable for skin repair, scarred tissue and light wounds, mature skin and fine wrinkles. It is useful to treat infections of the upper respiratory tract and rheumatoid arthritis.
