The first reports of a Rose essence date from the 7th century in the Ottoman empire, where people already distilled the beloved flowers for its fragrance and for its “magical and universally healing properties”.
Called “nectar of nectars” or “Precious amongst the precious”, Rose Attar or essence was considered the most luxurious perfume of the orient. It was used in all the important life rituals, from welcoming new-borns to assisting in the transitional stages of passing. It was used in the preparation of gourmet dessert and of “love” potions. It soon conquered Europe and the rest of the world. Both rose essential oil and rose water remain to this day one of the ultimate floral essences.
Rose essential oil vs Rose Absolute oil:
These are two hugely different extracts obtained from the same plant. Whereas the ESSENTIAL OIL of ROSE is obtained through a SIMPLE HYDRO DISTILLATION process, the same flower ABSOLUTE involves A COMPLEX PROCESS with natural solvent extractions & vacuuming to produce a super concentrated aromatic concrete. The concrete will be again processed to give the concentrated absolute.
ESSENTIAL OILS are SUPER CONCENTRATED WITH ALL THE ACTIVE HERBAL PROPERTIES of the plant and less concentrated in fragrant molecules. ABSOLUTE OILS are HIGHLY CONCENTRATED IN FRAGRANT MOLECULES and have lost most of the active herbal properties of the plant.
That is why PURE ESSENTIAL OILS WILL BE USED IN WELLBEING, AROMATHERAPY, AND ACTIVE COSMETICS (where the active herbal characteristics of the plant is required), while PURE CONCRETE AND ABSOLUTE OILS REMAIN INDISPENSABLE TO THE PERFUMERY WORLD.
Do not use during the first 3 months of pregnancy / breastfeeding
Keep out of reach of children and pets.
As a general rule, always perform a skin patch test before using your essential oils for the first time.
