Product Description

We source our Rise oil direct from Bulgaria, home to the finest Rose Absolute production in the world

Rose Absolute Oil

Rose is one of the most classic aromatherapy plants and is sourced from Bulgaria, home to the finest Rose in the world. The typical Rosebush shape grows mainly in mountainous regions with deep pink flowers. In Bulgaria, this region is known as the Valley of the Roses.

The picking season lasts from May to June, and the hills are alive with pickers and the sweet scent of Rose distilling. Many festivals occur during this time to celebrate the harvest, and the towns are alive with colour and festivity.

Sourcing true Bulgarian Rose is difficult due to the large perfume houses having contracts with the producers to buy up all of their production. However, we are proud of our relationship with growers in the region, which goes back to the mid-2000s, helping us obtain a consistent, high-quality supply.
