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

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.
