The two main species of Rose used for aromatherapy are Rosa damascena and Rosa centifolia. Nature provides us with two treasures obtained from these roses: an essential oil and an absolute. The essential oil is obtained by water distillation of the whole flowers, the absolute by solvent abstraction of the leaves and flowers.
Rose Damascena absolute has a
rich, warm, spicy-floral, and very deep rose aroma with a distinct hint of honey. The color of the oil is orangish to brownish yellow. It is solvent abstracted from the leaves and flowers of the rose plant.
Please note: Rose Damascena absolute is a rare and precious oil which is often adulterated.
Why Auroma Rose Damascena absolute from The Aromatherapy Place? So you neednít worry about buying essential oils that have been adulterated: Everyday Aromatherapy has been a ritual in Australia dating back to the Aborigines. Auroma has the technology and ability to analyze and validate every essential oil by conducting Gas Chromotography/Mass Spectrometry (GC/MS) testing and analysis. The Auroma laboratory is staffed by a team of experts, including two Ph.D Chemists, a Chemical Engineer, a Cosmetic Applications Chemist, trained perfumer and three accredited Aromatherapists. Every batch, every time!
