Our Rose Absolute (Rosa damascena) is produced through the process of solvent extraction in Russia by a rose growing company with a long tradition of making fine quality rose absolutes. It is highly valued by perfumers and is free of the slight solvent aroma found in lower quality absolutes.
Rose Absolute is used primarily for perfumery rather than for therapeutic applications. All three aromatic preparations of Rose, including Rose Otto and Organic Rose Enfleurage, are used in making perfumes, and while all have a characteristic “rose” aroma, each is subtly different.
The aroma is quite nice and somewhat lighter than that of the same flower, Rosa damascena, which is extracted by steam distillation to produce Rose Otto.Essential Oil Safety Considerations
