Balancing and restorative
Rose oil is used in many products for its soothing and balancing qualities, as well as its evocative, delicate fragrance.
This rose oil comes from Senir, Turkey. Producers have worked since 2005 to produce their high quality ingredient, distilling the oil and absolute from the petals of the native Damask roses. Today they have over 3000 farmers.
The roses are picked at dawn as this is the time the blooms are most fragrant. In order to make one kilogram of oil, you need to use approx. 1,866,666 roses.
The rose supplier in Turkey, Hasan, decided to invest into the creation of a free school for the area and we have been contributing € 50 per kilo of absolute we purchase to help finance the project.
The scent of rose is used by aromatherapists to lift the mood and restore balance. It is considered by some to be an aphrodisiac.
Within cosmetics, Rose oil soothes and calms the skin. The oil is extracted via a process of steam distillation from the petals of the rose.
