Rose Centifolia Absolute
100% PURE, THERAPEUTIC GRADE ABSOLUTE
COMMON NAME Rose absolute
BOTANICAL NAME Rosa centifolia
PLANT PARTS USED Flowers
COUNTRY OF ORIGIN Morocco
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.
