“Do not watch the petals fall from the rose with sadness, know that, like life, things sometimes must fade, before they can bloom again.” ~ unknown
Roses are considered one of the most beautiful flowers in the world. Roses are a part of stories, legends, myths and legacies. People who do not know about its medicinal properties can tell you a beautiful rose can invoke romantic feelings and bring on lovely memories.
Rose Essential Oil (Background)
It takes 10,000 roses to fill a single 5ml bottle! Due to the labor-intensive production process and the low content of oil in the rose blooms, rose oil commands a very high price. Harvesting of flowers is done by hand in the morning before sunrise and material is distilled the same day. So sending someone a 5ml bottle of Rose Essential Oil is like sending them 833 dozen roses. If you do the math, every drop of our Rose Essential oil is 60 roses.
