Roses are the source of an exquisite oil that has a delicate, uplifting fragrance and and a healing, rejuvenating effect on the skin.
The earliest known rose oil distillery existed in the year 1612 in Shiraz in what is now Turkey. Today Bulgaria, Morocco, Turkey, Russia and France with Bulgaria being are till the main producers of commercial roses.
Rose oil comes in two main types, rose absolute and rose otto. They are both used for the same purposes; the difference lies in how they are produced.
Rose absolute is produced by solvent extraction. This yields a reddish orange oil with a lighter floral scent, that many of us expect from a rose oil. It is much more viscous than rose otto and solidifies at cooler temperatures, so much so that you may need to warm it in your hands before use.
Rose otto sometimes called attar of roses, it has been used since ancient times. It is the more expensive of the two types of rose because it usually extracted by gentle steam distillation from Rosa damascena, the Damask Rose (occasionally Rosa centifolia, sometimes called Rose Maroc) and yields a sticky, pale yellow or olive green oil with a very rich, spicy floral scent.
