Rose Otto


Rosa damascena-distilled or concrete or absolute much the same as Rose Maroc. It takes at least a ton of roses to produce a pound of oil…and they must be gathered in the morning before the sun hits them and distilled that same day. Thus, true Rose Otto is very expensive. Blends with almost all oils. Contains hydrocarbons, monoterpenols, phenols and methyl ethers, damascenone, rose furan, citronellol, geraniol, nerol, stearopten, phenyl, ethanol, farnesol, linalool and many other trace constituents.

Generally considered non-toxic, non-sensitizing, non-irritating in low doses.  Dilute well for topical use.
