Rose Otto Essential Oil
The delicate and beautiful Damask Rose has been used in cosmetic preparations for centuries, providing a luxury, feminine note to many of the products we use today. The production of Rose Otto essential oil, although derived from the same flower as Rose Absolute, is far more labour intensive. The petals of the rose bush are harvested at sunrise, when the fragrance of the flower is at its most powerful. Steam distillation is applied to the petals, releasing a clear liquid with an exquisite, rosy aroma. It takes over 200 flowers to make a single drop of essential oil, making this a truly luxurious oil to use in home aromatherapy blends. Rose Otto oil is a celebrated mood booster, known for its cheering and nurturing properties. Try combining 2 drops of Rose Otto, 4 drops of Frankincense and 4 drops of Sandalwood in 20mls of carrier oil and massage in to the skin for a mood boosting treat.
