Organic Rosa Damascena (Bulgarian Rose Essential Oil)
Obtained by steam distillation of the whole flowers, with the roses generally picked manually and to minimise loss of oil harvesting needs to be done between 5am - 10am as this is the period that the flowers are open and the oil content is highest. These must be quickly transported to the distillery before being distilled.
Rose oil is produced by a two-stage distillation process. It is a common practice to redistill the distilled water, a process known as cohobation. The yield of cohobation oil is several times higher than that of the flowering material. The oils from the two distillation are then blended.
Rosewater is the aqueous portion of the steam distillation after rose oil has been removed.
