Rose oil is one of the most beloved essential oils. It’s also one of the most expensive as the petals need to be carefully handpicked and 30 roses produce only 1 drop of essential oil – that’s around 600 roses to make a single ml!
Rose Otto is steam distilled and has a lower yield thus is more expensive than Rose Absolute which uses solvent extraction to yield a higher amount of oil.
A word of caution: Rose oil is in high demand for perfumery and skincare. Unfortunately, there is huge temptation for less scrupulous operators to adulterate oils. A good indication is the price - if it sounds too good to be true, it more than likely is.

Nature/Essence – Sweet & Loving

Rose is ideal to soothe and hydrate dry sensitive skin, and is especially beneficial for mature skin to soften, revitalise and calm redness.

Rose has a calming affect on the heart useful for nervous palpitations, and is recognised for its toning and regulating effect on the female reproductive system.

Rose is connected to the heart, opening up a loving energy (both to self and others). It is strengthening and comforting during times of emotional pain, heartbreak, grief and disappointment, and helps release fear, anger and frustration.

Rose’s loving and sensual nature is perfect to create a romantic atmosphere.

Beautiful scent

I got both rose centifolia and rose damascena. The smell is very personal for each of us, but here goes the difference between them: centifolia smells like like old fashion roses with a hint of spice, while damascena is a very strong floral scent.
