We carry a lot of rose oils in our apothecary: Bulgarian, Turkish, French, Russia, India, China in essential oil, absolute, CO2, and otto. There’s a lot of rose in our collection. It’s fair to say that I have a certain expectation with rose essential oil or absolute, certain notes my nose can expect. But a day after receiving our Greek artisan distilled organic Rose essential oil, I’m still trying to get my head around it. I’m shook. I’m struggling to articulate how different and beautiful this rose is. This Greek rose reminds me of the rose I would pick and make into perfume as a kid; it is uncloying and uncomplicated and true to the fresh picked rose, something that is very difficult to achieve when distilling flowers. It reveals the hand of a masterful distiller and his careful attention to plant material, steam and storage. It excites me, makes me grateful that I do this for a living. Our rose essential oil is an artisan distillation meaning not mass produced and distilled according to crop availability. It is small batches and yes, it is expensive. But like all rare and beautiful things, so little is needed to satisfy a rite of passage into botanical perfumery.
Suggested use: Can be added to any skin care for added skincare benefits including softening wrinkles and moisurize skin. Rose is also an exquisite addition to any natual perfumery blend.
