Bulgarian Rose is extracted from the delicate petals of freshly picked Rosa damascena flowers grown and harvested exclusively in the Rose Valley in the Bulgarian countryside. Damascena Rose has a sweet, deep, highly floral, antique rose aroma with a faint indolic, warm, honeyed undertone and a great fresh green, lemon-citrus note that emerges in the dry.
Arctander, in his book Perfume and Flavour Materials of Natural Origin, notes that Bulgarian Rose Absolute is so widely used in high-end perfumes that it is hardly possible to define its area of use.
Uses of rose oil
Rose oil is one of the most important and widely used oils in perfume production. The aroma is often used as the main theme of a perfume, but it is also prized for its ability, especially in extremely diluted form, to blend well with almost all other fragrances and to enhance and complete many perfume compositions.
Rosa damascena is traditionally calming and uplifting. It is used for its soothing, rejuvenating and toning properties on the skin. It enhances the skin's natural radiance and glow, and helps with superficial broken capillaries and scars, as well as eczema and rosacea. It is also ideal for dry, sensitive or mature skin and helps soothe hot skin conditions such as rashes and ulcers. Bulgarian Damask Rose oil is also useful in managing minor aches and pains and inflammation, reducing the presence of unwanted bacterial activity and helping to relieve unwanted muscle spasms.
Emotionally and energetically, rose oil is said to have strong antidepressant and uplifting properties. It is well suited for use in formulations designed to help manage situational anxiety and promote restful sleep, relaxation and encourage a sense of calm. Rose is also known as the flower of seduction because of its powerful natural aphrodisiac properties and can be useful in sexual applications.
