Rose Otto Essential Oil

Rose Otto Essential Oil – Organic

100% Pure Organic Essential Oil

A fine distillation of certified organic Rosa damascena. Steam distilled in Bulgaria from organically grown, fresh, whole Damask rose flower tops.

Bulgarian Rose Otto Essential Oil, is the oil extracted from the petals of one of the rarest flowers in the world, the Bulgarian Rose Damascena, which is only cultivated and harvested in the Rose Valley of Kazanlak (also known as the “Bulgarian Rose Valley”). Approximately 3000 – 3500 kg rose flowers are needed to obtain 1kg of the precious golden liquid, which is why the cost of the oil is so high.

Rose Oil consists of over 300 components of essential oils, not all of which have been identified to date and it has one of the most valuable and distinct fragrances – the primary base notes are deep, sweet and floral with spicy middle notes. Major components are: geraniol, citronellol, and nerol. Many other components are present in very small amounts, but have a substantial effect on the overall rose oil quality. An example is a compound called beta-damascenone, which is one of the most potent odour constituents and is considered as a marker for the quality of the rose oil.

This beautiful Rose otto essential oil possesses harmonizing aroma therapeutic properties, promoting inner relaxation, balance and sleep. It is also one of the most beneficial and skin-friendly natural essential oils. Rose Otto Essential Oil is also known for its healing and antiseptic properties.

Please Note:
Pure Rose otto oil will form (as do all true steam distilled Rose oils) white or colorless crystals of one of its components – stearoptene – at a temperature below 70°F (21°C). The oil will solidify into a thin paste-like mass at even cooler temperatures. This does not alter the quality of the oil, but rather verifies that it is a true rose otto. By gently rolling the bottle between your hands, the oil will soon warm and return to a completely liquid state.
