Rose Damascena Absolute
100% PURE, THERAPEUTIC GRADE ABSOLUTE
COMMON NAME Rose absolute
BOTANICAL NAME Rosa damascena
PLANT PARTS USED Flowers
EXTRACTION METHOD Solvent
COUNTRY OF ORIGIN Bulgaria
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.

Nice

I got a 1ml sample size as 5ml was out of stock and I couldn't afford Rose Otto. I wish I could compare these two but can't. This Rose Absolute has nice scent but not quite what I expected, and I have to say I've smelled nicer scent of Rose Absolute before. Nonetheless, this is lovely and if you want to add Rose Essential Oil, this is worth trying. If you only need a drop or two at a time and won't be needing it frequently, 1ml is surprisingly enough. 1ml tiny bottle has a little cap and it was stained bright orange colour, which was a bit of a surprise.
