visagenics Bulgarian Rose Essential Oil

The aroma of Bulgarian Rose Essential Oil (Rose Otto) is warm and uplifting, creating a sense of positivity, harmony, and self-confidence. It is highly beneficial to the skin and is a popular ingredient in skin care preparations – especially for acne-prone skin as it has been proven to eliminate the bacteria that is responsible for such outbreaks.

Rose Essential Oil Production Process

Distilled from the fragrant petals of the Bulgarian Rose flower - "Rose Damascena", it takes more than two tons of rose petals to make a single kilogram of Rose essential oil. This alone makes it one of the most expensive and precious essential oils you can buy today, but it also means that much of so-called "rose oil" on the market is adulterated with lesser oils – like geranium, palmarosa, gaiac, citronella, and bois de rose – botanicals that mimic its heady scent.

As an established producer of Bulgarian Rose Essential Oil, VISAGENICS offers only the pure "Rose Otto" - organically made, with absolutely no additives. There is practically no better essential oil, in existence today.

Rose Essential Oil description

Visagenics Bulgarian Rose essential oil is steam distilled from the petals of the blooming flower and presents as a pale, thin, green-yellow liquid with a rich, sweet, and slightly spicy aroma representing a strong middle aromatic note.

In cooler temperatures, the liquid will thicken and may form crystals. This is a natural process and does not affect the quality or integrity of the oil. If this happens, simply warm the oil in a cup of hot water prior to use and the crystals will disappear. Keep this in mind when adding it to skin preparations as you may occasionally notice a change in the texture or consistency of your product. Keeping your products at room temperature should help you avoid these issues.

Rose otto is the purest form of rose oil. Tiny quantities of oil are separated from the hydrosol after distillation and it is this product that commands some of the highest prices of any essential oil sold today.

The principal chemical constituents of rose essential oil are:

·       Geraniol

·       Citronellal

·       Nerol

·       Eugenol

·       Farnesol

·       Phenol

Natural Way to Fight Acne with Rose Oil

Acne or Acne Vulgaris is one of the most common skin diseases that can affect the skin of anyone, especially the teenagers. Usually, acne appears on the face but many people can also get this skin problem on other parts like the neck, shoulders or back. It can be caused due to various reasons ranging from unhealthy lifestyle and junk diet to stress and hygiene. These things cause increased secretion of sebum from the sebaceous gland. Although a natural lubricant for the skin and hair, sebum also attracts bacteria that feed on it and clog the skin pores or hair follicles. This results in the formation of pimples, comedones, and acne. People tray various methods, from natural soothers to chemical-based creams, to treat their pimples. However, the best way to fight acne is naturally with rose essential oil. Here are the two best natural ways to fight acne with rose essential oil:

  • Homemade Facemask

Making a homemade facemask with rose essential oil is a great way to naturally treat pimples. All you need is natural honey, rose essential oil, almond oil, and Vitamin E. Mix 2 tablespoons of honey, 5 drops of rose oil, 2 tablespoons of almond oil, and 1 drop of Vitamin E in a bowl. Gently massage this mixture on your face after cleaning it properly and let it sit for about 15 minutes. Rinse the mask with lukewarm water and pat the face dry with a clean cloth. This would visibly treat your acne.


  • Homemade Night Cream

Another natural way to treat acne is by making a night apple cream with rose essential oil. Apples, rich in antioxidants, beta-carotene, and vitamin A, B, and C, are very effective in keeping the skin healthy and radiant. Adding rose essential oil in the cream helps in soothing acne, revitalizing dry skin, maintaining pH-balance, and removing any scars from the face.

To make this night cream, you need to blend 2 tablespoons of rose oil and almond oil with half seeded and cubed apple. If required, you can also add a pinch of cinnamon/nutmeg/turmeric and little honey to obtain smooth consistency. You can store this mixture in a clean container in refrigerator and use it as a night cream. Apply on face at night, sleep once it is dried, and wash it off in the morning with lukewarm water.

Whether you are making a facemask or a night cream, using the rose essential from Visagenics can make this remedy even more effective in fighting acne.

About our production process

Bulgarian Rose Damascena is prized for its intense aroma and purity. Visagenics’ rose essential oil is made exclusively from organic Damascena Roses grown in Bulgaria.

Cultivated only in the Bulgarian “Rose Valley” of Kazanlak in the foothills of the Balkan Mountains, the VISAGENICS Bulgarian Rose Oil produced here is preferred to that of other countries and regions. The unique combination of climate, soil, and respectful stewardship has resulted in a product that we can claim as superior, surpassing all others in terms of quality, consistency, and concentration.

Harvested by hand in a careful and painstaking process, the blossoms are collected in the cool early mornings and taken directly to the still.

Once harvested, the petals are gently steam distilled. Heated slowly in small batches with pure, clean Bulgarian mountain spring water, the oil separates and floats to the top of the liquid. The oil is then collected and separated from the hydrosol, after which it is placed in clear glass containers where they are briefly exposed to sunlight. This exposure gently warms the oil, bringing all impurities to the surface where they can be skimmed off, leaving only the purest rose otto behind.

A small amount of the hydrosol is then blended back into the otto to make the final product, although the bulk of the hydrosol is primarily sold as rose water, a popular item in cosmetic perfumery.
