Our rich, sweet Rose Otto is steam distilled from blossoms of Rosa damascena grown in the renowned Kazanlak Valley of the Roses in Bulgaria, producer of the most valuable rose extractions available. The rose blossoms are hand picked in the same method in which they have been harvested for 300 years. The roses must be quickly transported to the distilling location and nearly 10,000 pounds of rose petals are necessary to steam distill one pound of this precious essential Rose Otto oil.
Our Bulgarian Rose Otto is a very pale yellow oil which forms blades of crystals at temperatures lower than 70 degrees Fahrenheit. Rose Ottto is part of a unique set of essential oils that can become crystalline. The aroma of Bulgarian Rose Otto is reminiscent of red roses, an elegant rich deep romantic floral. One of the most popular essences for rejuvenating skincare, aromatherapy and natural perfumery, the extensive uses of this treasured essential oil are rather limitless and its benefits are plentiful.
