Century-Old Craftsmanship:
The Distillation of Rose Oil

Picking and distillation of Rosa damascena, or the Damask rose, is a meticulous process that requires careful attention to detail to preserve the delicate fragrance and therapeutic properties of this revered flower. The harvest of Damask roses typically occurs in the early morning hours when the flowers are at their peak bloom and their fragrance is most potent. Experienced harvesters carefully hand-select each rose, ensuring that only the freshest and most vibrant blossoms are chosen. This labor-intensive process is essential to maintain the quality and integrity of the roses.


Once the roses are harvested, they are transported to the distillation facility where the extraction process begins. The roses are gently placed into a large copper still along with pure water. The still is then sealed, and steam is passed through the rose petals, causing them to release their essential oils. As the steam rises through the petals, it carries with it the aromatic compounds of the roses. The steam and oil mixture is then cooled, causing the steam to condense back into water and the essential oil to separate and float on the surface. This precious oil is carefully collected and stored in glass bottles in a dark place to protect it from light and oxidation, preserving its potency and fragrance.

The distillation of Rosa damascena is an ancient art that requires skill, patience, and a deep understanding of the flower's properties. The resulting essential oil is highly prized for its luxurious aroma and therapeutic benefits, making it a cherished ingredient in perfumery, aromatherapy, and skincare products around the world.


Many Petals for a Little Oil

Centred Image

The journey from field to bottle of Rosa Damascena essential oil is a testament to nature's bounty and the meticulous craftsmanship required to capture its essence. With awe-inspiring numbers, it's no wonder why this precious elixir is highly cherished and revered. To obtain a single kilogram of pure essential oil from Rosa Damascena, an astonishing 3,000 to 4,000 kilograms of roses are needed. This staggering ratio underscores the remarkable concentration and potency of the oil extracted from these delicate blossoms.

However, the yield is not solely determined by quantity; rather, it is influenced by a multitude of factors, including climate, time of harvest, flower quality, and distillation techniques. In regions blessed with a mild climate, the conditions are particularly conducive to optimal rose cultivation, resulting in superior quality and higher yields of essential oil. Furthermore, the bio-rhythms of the roses themselves play a pivotal role, dictating the cycles of production of fragrant molecules. This harmonious dance between nature's rhythms and human intervention ensures the finest quality oil is obtained.

Centred Image

The harvesting process is a labor-intensive endeavor, beginning in the early dawn during the revered "Brahma muhurta," the Creator's time as per the Vedas. At this auspicious hour, when the world is still draped in the quiet embrace of pre-dawn, the roses reach their peak production of essential oil molecules, maximizing potency and fragrance. And yet, the marvel doesn't end there. To distill just one liter of Rose oil, an astonishing 1,200,000 to 1,500,000 blossoms must be meticulously hand-picked, one by one. Each small glass of Rose oil, containing approximately 30 ml, encapsulates the essence of a staggering 40,000 blossoms.

Such concentration is further highlighted when considering that it takes 50 to 70 Rose blossoms to yield just a single drop of essential oil. In essence, every drop of pure Rose oil is a testament to nature's abundance and the profound connection between humanity and the natural world. When you apply just one drop of this precious elixir to your heart, you're not just indulging in luxury; you're embracing the essence of thousands of blossoms, their beauty, and their wisdom, all captured in a single drop.


Damascena Rose Cultivation


Iran / Persia

In Persia, the cradle of rose cultivation, the love affair with Rosa Damascena dates back thousands of years. It is believed that the Persians were among the first to recognize the transformative potential of distilling roses into essential oils. While the exact origins of rose distillation remain shrouded in the mists of time, it is clear that the Persians played a pivotal role in elevating this ancient art form to new heights. Despite the misconception that Ibn Senna (Avicenna) pioneered rose distillation in the 11th century, historical evidence suggests that the Persians were already distilling roses long before his time.



Bulgaria, often hailed as the "Rose Valley" of the world, has earned international acclaim for its superior quality Rosa Damascena. Nestled amidst the rolling hills of the Balkans, the Bulgarian rose fields bloom with an abundance of fragrant blossoms, painting the landscape in hues of pink and red. Here, rose cultivation is not merely a profession but a cherished tradition passed down through generations. The Bulgarian people take great pride in their role as custodians of the Damask rose, employing time-honored methods to cultivate and harvest these precious blooms.



In Turkey, the land where East meets West, Rosa Damascena thrives amidst a landscape steeped in history and romance. Turkish rose cultivation is characterized by its meticulous attention to detail and unwavering commitment to quality. From the fertile soils of the Anatolian plateau to the sun-drenched fields of Isparta, Turkish roses flourish under the watchful gaze of skilled cultivators. The roses are harvested with reverence and care, their petals carefully gathered to preserve their delicate fragrance and therapeutic properties.



Morocco, with its vibrant markets and bustling souks, is another bastion of Rosa Damascena cultivation. Here, amidst the labyrinthine streets of Marrakech and the sun-drenched valleys of the Atlas Mountains, the Damask rose reigns supreme. Moroccan rose oil, known for its rich aroma and amber hue, is prized by perfumers and aromatherapists alike. The cultivation of roses in Morocco is a labor of love, with farmers tending to their fields with dedication and devotion.


All you can have: Rose Essential Oil consists of more than 500 compounds

The essence of Rosa Damascena, captured within its precious oil, is a veritable treasure trove of healing potentials, boasting over 500 different compounds, each with its own unique virtues and therapeutic properties. The major ones are: Citronellol, Citral, Carvone, Citronellyl acetate, Eugenol, Ethanol, Farsenol, Stearpoten, Methyl eugenol, Nerol, Nonanol, Nonanal, Phenyl acetaldehyde, Phenylmenthyl acetate and Phenyl geraniol.
Yet, amidst this abundance lies a realm of mystery and intrigue, as the majority of nature's bio-molecules remain unexplored and enigmatic, their profound healing virtues and hidden psycho-spiritual effects waiting to be unveiled. While modern science has made significant strides in analyzing and understanding some of the compounds found within Rosa Damascena oil, there is still much to discover. Many of nature's bio-molecules have yet to be fully comprehended in terms of their multifaceted healing

capabilities, let alone their intricate synergistic interactions with one another. Indeed, the healing potential of Rosa Damascena oil extends far beyond the realm of physical well-being, reaching into the depths of the mind and soul. Each compound within the oil carries with it a subtle energy and resonance, capable of eliciting profound shifts in consciousness and emotional states.
These psycho-spiritual "side-effects" are often subtle and nuanced, yet their impact can be profound, offering a pathway to inner transformation. As we continue to explore the depths of nature's wisdom, we are reminded of the inherent complexity and beauty of the natural world. Within the petals of Rosa Damascena lies a wealth of healing potentials waiting to be discovered, offering a glimpse into the infinite mysteries of the universe and the profound interconnectedness of all life.

"More than 500 different compounds – each of them a superlative in itself of specific healing impulses for our body, mind and soul."

High – Higher – The Highest:
Rosa Damascena Essential Oil vibrates at 320MHz

The significance of frequency in the realm of quality essential oils unveils a fascinating interplay between the body's electromagnetic vibrations and the molecular spectrum of these oils. As essential oil molecules interact with bodily tissues, they resonate at specific frequencies, influencing natural electromagnetic vibrations and restoring coherence to electric fields, thereby fostering healing and wellness. This resonance is just one of many processes through which essential oils offer therapeutic benefits. Each essential oil possesses its own unique frequency, which corresponds to frequencies of organs and body parts. Understanding this, it becomes evident that the frequency of an oil attracts a similar frequency within the body, with lower frequencies acting as conduits for negative energy absorption. The lasting effects of oils are sustained by their resonant frequencies within the body. There are low, middle, and high frequencies, each imparting distinct changes on the body—physical, emotional, and spiritual. The high spiritual frequencies range from 92 to 360 MHz, suggesting a profound connection between higher frequencies and spiritual well-being. Rosa damascena essential oil has a frequency of 320MHz and thus is one of the highest vibrating substances available.

The concept of oils responding to thoughts, words, and prayers is intriguing. Through studies by Bruce Tainio, it is revealed that negative thoughts decrease the frequencies of essential oils, while positive thoughts and prayers increase them significantly. This underscores the powerful impact of intent on the healing properties of oils.

Effects of Rose Oil on the Emotional and Spiritual Level

Rose Oil holds significant therapeutic properties on mental, emotional, and spiritual levels, making it a versatile remedy for various ailments. In Ayurveda, it is recognized as a pacifier for Pitta Dosha, helping to alleviate irritability and anger. Furthermore, it serves as a conduit to open the heart's energies, dispelling fear and fostering a connection between the outer self and inner spiritual core. This alignment facilitates feelings of love, compassion, and devotion to the Divine, uplifting individuals to embrace life's unity and existence. In matters of romance, Rose Oil is hailed as a master aphrodisiac, akin to Cupid's arrow in modern-day courtships. Its enchanting scent possesses the power to arouse libido

and ignite romantic sentiments, essential for fostering successful love experiences. Additionally, Rose Oil's cooling properties evoke a sense of calmness, akin to the soothing effects of water. On a spiritual level, Rose Oil embodies a deep spiritual energy, earning its title as the 'Queen of the Flowers.' Symbolized by the Lotus principle of bud and bloom, it signifies the unfolding of the soul and the blossoming of life's unity. This spiritual resonance makes Rose Oil a potent anti-depressant, instilling self-esteem, confidence, and hope, while combatting feelings of inner weakness and anxiety. Widely utilized in aromatherapy, Rose Oil invokes positivity, spirituality, and a sense of joy and happiness, offering solace and upliftment to those in need.


Experiences with Rose Oil

To demonstrate how much psychology plays a part in this, I’ll tell you that I used Rose after my mother passed away. So I had developed a cognitive association with using rose when I needed to work through grief, which helped the oil stimulate that response in me again.

My second experience with aromatherapy was during a therapeutic touch/ Reiki session. The therapist used rose oil on my chest and I felt a welling up of emotion relating to a painful exchange with a friend. An internal shift in perception allowed me to forgive her and move forward with a more peaceful heart.

Rose: An oil that helps relax the uterus and regulate your menstrual cycle, Rose also has a libido enhancing effect and improves cervical mucus. However, it is important to note that this oil should not be used after ovulation in your cycle, as it is not safe during pregnancy.

Iused to have bloating in my abdomen before my cycle along with cramping and other female “symptoms”. I now use 1-2 drops of pure “wonderful” Rose oil on my abdomen starting 10 days before and up to my menstrual cycle, no more bloating! Even during the month for other symptoms (depression, melancholy, etc.) I also apply it in circular motion on my heart, breath it in and apply to my ankles. Some may think it costly but believe me it is well worth more than gold. Give it a try!

We do not talk about Rose oil enough, partly because of its cost (which I am HAPPY to pay). But seriously, Rose oil is one of the most powerful oils with an amazingly high frequency. It is one of the very first oils I bought, too, and it lasted for two years! There is a deep inner wisdom in our hearts. Our hearts know the answers to all the questions we have and will ever have. And Rose oil helps us to access this wisdom when our hearts have been challenged by the people and events around us.

Aromatic hydrosol against hot flashes: it’s great! It’s my turn to offer you an exceptional treatment against hot flashes. After trying without success a number of food supplements I turned to aromatic hydrosols, formulas much less concentrated and therefore much easier to use than essential oils. Sage, Rose and Peppermint in mixture, at a rate of tablespoon of the mixture in a liter of water to drink throughout the day. Result: I no longer have hot flashes during the day and no more night sweats.

When it was time for our son to be born, I created a “Mommy & Baby” first aid kit. This kit would contain a synergy blend, massage oils, hydrosols and extra bottles of essential oils for emergencies. I would also bring my diffuser to disperse the aroma in the room; to relax my mind and to allow me the peace of mind that I would have no seizures. The kit contained oils of Clary Sage, Jasmine, Lavender, and Rose to assist with my contractions, to help my mind to focus and relax, and to prevent anxiety of seizure activity.
Cf. Zsuszana G. Davidson, Living with Epilepsy and Aromatic Oil

Aweek ago I suddenly developed a nasty rash on my face that was hot, dry and very itchy but very sensitive as well. My right ear was leaking serum from where it joins my head and both ears were inflamed, red and scaly. I was a mess. None of the creams or oils worked for very long. I was lucky enough to get Rose oil recently and today I finally searched the site to see what uses it has. I saw one testimonial where it had been used for a skin disorder so I thought “Why not”, ONE DROP of Rose oil was enough to spread over my face, ears and neck. Within SECONDS the itch had stopped, the skin no longer looked leathery and the peeling skin disappeared!

I bought both the Jojoba facial oil with Neroli and Rose and I use a few drops on my face every night. The oil is so fine and absorbs into my skin easily. It leaves my skin soft and moist without the greasy feeling. I just love the luxurious aroma of the rose and neroli!”
