About the Oil

This oil is steam distilled using the petals of organically grown Damask Rose petals from Bulgaria.

The term 'otto' is used simply to differentiate the steam distilled variety from the absolute. In aromatherapy applications, the otto is more potent than the absolute, and therefore a smaller amount is needed to achieve the same level of aroma potency. Some perfumers consider a fraction of a percent sufficient for some blends.

Though the rose is renown for its fragrance, the flower actually contains very little aromatic oil by weight. Some 60,000 roses are needed to distill a single ounce of oil, and the oil of 60 roses are contained in each drop, thus bringing the relatively high cost of rose oil into perspective.

Aromatherapy Notes

This Rose otto essential oil has light, floral top notes followed by sweet nectar-like and ripe stone fruit middle notes all underpinned by a distinctly musty and slightly wooded undertone.

It blends well with: Jasmine, Cassie, Orange (sweet, Mandarin, Petitgrain), Geranium, Bergamot, Lavender, Clary Sage, Sandalwood, Patchouli, Chamomile (both German and Roman), Balsam, Clove and Palmarosa.

Rose otto is considered the essential oil with the highest vibration used in aromatherapy today.

Traditional Uses

Rose essential oil was first distilled by the Arabic Physician Avicenna, who wrote an entire book on its plethora of healing properties. These include: nervous tension, liver congestion,

In traditional Chinese medical practice (TCM), Rose has a cool, moist nature and therefore is very useful for conditions relating to excess heat and inflammation.
