    Rose products are from the NATURAL roses of Rose Valley in Bulgaria-Kazanlak, extracted from the "Rosa Damascena " by steam distillation. Production of rose and rose oil in Bulgaria-Kazanlak has started 16th century and today the region is the biggest rose oil exporter. Around 4000 kg of fresh roses distilled to get just 1 kg of high quality rose oil. There are two main Rose Oil types; Rose ottos are extracted through steam distillation, while rose absolutes are obtained through solvent extraction or supercritical carbon dioxide extraction, with the absolute being used more commonly in perfumery. Even with their high price and the advent of organic synthesis, rose oils are still perhaps the most widely used essential oil in perfumery. Bulgaria produces about 70% of all rose oil in the world.

    Distillation

    In the process of distillation, large stills, traditionally of copper, are filled with roses and water. The still is fired for 60–105 minutes. The vaporized water and rose oil exit the still and enter a condensing apparatus and are then collected in a flask. This distillation yields a very concentrated oil, direct oil, which makes up about 20% of the final product. The water which condenses along with the oil is drained off and redistilled, cohobation, in order to obtain the water-soluble fractions of the rose oil are a vital component of the aroma and which make up the large bulk, 80%, of the oil. The two oils are combined and make the final rose otto. The essence has a very strong odor, but is pleasant when diluted and used for perfume. Attar of roses was once made in India, Persia, Syria, and Bulgaria. The Rose Valley in Bulgaria, near the town of Kazanlak, is among the major producers of attar of roses in the world. Due to the heat required for distillation, some of the compounds extracted from the rose undergo denaturing or chemical breakdown. As such, rose otto does not smell very similar to "fresh" roses. The hydrosol portion of the distillate is known as rosewater. This inexpensive by-product is used widely as a food flavoring as well as in skin care. While you are trying the rose products you will feel yourself the surprising positive effect of natural roses on your skin, hands, face and body.
