Rose Petals used to produce Rose Otto / Rose Oil / Rose Essential Oil Description and Uses: Our Rose Otto (attar) is produced by a Bulgarian rose growing company and essential oil distiller with a century-old tradition of fine quality essential oil distillation.

Our Bulgarian Rose oil is steam distilled (no solvent extraction) and is 100% pure. This rose oil contains the essence of Rosa Damascena flowers, cultivated in Bulgaria. The perfect location in "The Valley of the Roses" where the mild climate with gentle sunshine ensures the fragrance, purity and naturalness of the rose essential oil is complete, intact and uncompromised. The usual rose harvest time in Bulgaria starts around the third week of May and the harvesting of the rose petals continues, depending mainly on the weather conditions, for three to five weeks. The yield of rose oil can be dramatically affected by the weather. The best weather conditions for Rose harvest is mild and humid weather with night temperatures around 24-28 deg. C. Under normal conditions, harvest begins as soon as the flowers start opening and continues until all the rose flowers have been gathered.

More Info: The Rose flowers are picked up very early in the morning while the morning dew is still on them, bagged and transported to the distillery as quickly as possible. The quantity of flowers picked up for the day is closely matched to the amount that can be processed in one day since if the flowers are not kept fresh they begin to deteriorate and the precious volatile oil evaporates and loses quality.

The pure, undiluted Rose Essential oil that results from this process is absolutely the finest Rose Oil available. Rose Otto is a warm, intense, immensely rich fragrance. One of the oldest and best known of all essential oils, Rose Oil is used in all types of perfumes to lend beauty and depth to the aroma. A drop or two in a massage, facial, or bath oil creates a luxurious, soothing experience. Rose oil is also used in skin creams, powders, and lotions. Romantic, creative, gently cheering oil. A drop or two of pure rose oil on the skin can make a delightful single note rose perfume.

Pure Bulgarian Rose Otto is a yellow to yellow-green oil which tends to solidify into a translucent mass at temperatures below 20°C. The aroma is warm, floral, specifically dense, fine with honey notes, specific for Bulgarian Rose oil.

Extraction Method: Steam Distilled. Bulgaria has a 330 year-old-tradition in Rose essential oil steam distillation (not solvent extracted) and is 100% pure. Absolutely no carrier oils are added! It takes about 10,000 pounds of flowers to make one pound of rose oil.

Only pure steam distillation leaves the oil in its natural state. This pure rose otto contains the essence of the precious and beautiful rosa damascena flowers cultured in the Valley of the Roses in Bulgaria. This perfect location and climate, with gentle sunshine, ensures minimum release of the aromatic ingredients from the flower.

The wax film on the rosa damascena remains thin because the plant does not need to strive to protect itself from strong solar radiation… as do roses in other countries. This explains the smaller content of stearoptenes (waxes and solids) in the Bulgarian rose oil. Through steam distillation the scented rose petal oil globules are gently separated from the pink petals, leaving the fragrance, purity and vibration of the essential oil intact and uncompromised.

Rose otto is beneficial during times of stress. Rose essential oil helps to relieve nervous tension, stress and mild anxiety and menstrual symptoms. A few drops of our high quality Rose Oil (Rose Otto) will - Enliven: romance, auras, chakras, love, libido, sensuality, happiness. 100% pure rose oil can also enhance inner vision, relationships and meditation and assist with skin care, easing grief, encouraging contentment, dissipating guilt, liver detoxing, opening the heart and balancing the female reproduction system. It can also ease menstrual tension, frigidity, hangovers, depression, symptoms of menopause and bring harmony, comfort, calmness, patience and joy. The fragrance of rose oil enlivens the connection between our physical bodies and our spiritual selves. Pure rose otto has an immeasurable frequency.

Skin Care: Rose otto may be used on all skin types, especially mature and sensitive skin. For centuries the rose has been associated with feminine beauty and hence skin care. Bulgarian pure rose oil is a top note essential oil. Its frequency is extremely high and rapid. Rose oil has the highest frequency (320 Mhz) of all the essential oils on the planet. This in itself is an important factor. It means that the fragrant molecules of the rose oil, on inhalation or application, are able to quickly penetrate and travel the infinitesimal pathways of the body, rapidly energising every cell, bringing balance, harmony and beauty to the body.

Rose essential oil has a long history in folk remedies, especially in the area of skin care. It is suitable for all skin types, but it is especially valuable for dry, sensitive or aging skins. It has a tonic and astringent effect on the capillaries just below the skin surface, which makes it useful in diminishing the redness caused by enlarged capillaries. It is important to ensure that the product you use contains the genuine rose essential oil. Many manufacturers label their products containing rose essence but it could be synthetic. Synthetic rose ingredients have no therapeutic value at all! Remember, with authentic rose otto, a little goes a long way.
