Coming Soon – 100% Pure Bulgarian Damask Rose Oil


It’s exciting as we prepare to add one of the most indulgent and desirable essential oils, rose essential oil, known as the ‘Queen of Oils, ‘ to our selection.

The use of this powerful and versatile oil dates back thousands of years. It is known to have been used in Ancient Greece and Ancient Egypt for its therapeutic benefits and is still incredibly popular today for its many uses.

Background of rose oil

Before we dive into the benefits of rose oil, let’s take a look at where this magnificent product comes from.

The rose essential oil produced from the Rosa Damascena Rose is considered the best oil-producing rose in the world. It is believed to be a hybrid of Rose Gallica and Rose Phoenicia and has been cultivated for thousands of years.

The flower is particularly sensitive to climate and soil conditions. However, favourable growing conditions have been discovered in the Kazanlak region of Bulgaria, now dubbed the Valley of the Roses.

The extraction of pure rose essential oil is a long and delicate process. The roses are picked before sunrise, as distillation must occur while the rose petals are still fresh. If the rose petals wither off, it may not provide the desired result.

Rose oil is extracted via water distillation, and the heat must be carefully controlled to avoid damaging the floral scent. The fresh rose flowers produce a yield of up to 0.05%. It takes 10,000 roses to produce 5ml of rose oil, making extracting this essential oil highly labour-intensive and time-consuming.

In addition to rose oil, rosehip oil is also extracted from the part just below the petals.

Now for the benefits—this is why rose essential oil is in such high demand and why people make enormous efforts to extract it. It is a potent oil, and the uses and benefits of this essential oil are plentiful.
