More info

History: The rose is one of the world’s best known flowers - stunning and exotic in both visual appearance and aroma.

Otto is a Bulgarian word for "oil". It’s used to differentiate the steam distilled from the absolute. The production of this oil is vary labor intensive; the flowers are carefully hand picked at a particular time of day, when the fragrance of the flower is at its strongest. Since the oil is steam distilled, it only contains the natural essences of the rose petals as opposed to solvent extracted that possibly contains minute amounts of hexane.

Turkey and Bulgaria are the biggest producers of pure rose oil, and because of their climate, the petals of the flowers do not over-produce wax. Approximately 4000 kilograms of petals are required to produce 1 kilogram of pure rose oil. The exotic nature and value were appreciated in ancient times by the Greeks, Chinese, Indians, Persians and Romans. All documentation indicates that their medical applications of the essential oil were identical to those that exist today.

Characteristics:  A sweet rich floral aroma similar to the scent of the freshly picked flowers.
