ROSE MAROC ABSOLUTE (Rosa centifolia) – Morocco.
Rosa centifolia oil is also known as Rose Maroc, French Rose, Attar of Rose or Rose Absolute.

What does ‘Absolute’ mean?

Rose Absolute is an oil that has been solvent extracted from the fresh flower petals of the hybrid ‘rose de mai’. Solvent extraction produces a ‘concrete’ which is made up of fats, waxes, essential oils & other plant matter. The Absolute is then extracted from the concrete using ethanol (alcohol) as a solvent, which is removed before the oil is bottled into the end product, a very strong scented Rose Oil.

One of the most prized aromatherapy oils, it takes up to 30 roses to produce just one drop of Rose oil, which is why it is more expensive than most. However being a very strong oil, you don’t need to use much at a time.

Rose oil has a deep, rich, sweet, rosy-spicy, honeylike fragrance, and is generally agreed to be harmonising for the soul and spirit, anti-depressive, and may help ease sorrow or grief. It can open the heart and soothe anger, fear and anxiety. It is also used for many gynaecological conditions, and in combination with Melissa oil can be used to treat Herpes zoster and Herpes simplex.

Rose oil has excellent emollient and hydrating properties which, along with stimulating and antiseptic properties, makes it ideal for skincare – especially for mature, dry or sensitive skin.

Rose oil is non-toxic, non-irritant and non-sensitising, but since it is an emmenogogue (promotes menstrual flow) it is best avoided during pregnancy.
