Rose oil is regarded as one of the most traditional and premium essential oils in aromatherapy and perfumery today.
The rose blossoms of Rosa damascena begin to bloom in Bulgaria around the third week of May, and will continue for three or four weeks depending upon weather conditions. Yields can be highly volatile depending on the conditions during this short period of time. For example, any extreme heat could result in a yield loss as the oil will evaporate just like other floral oils.
Harvesting begins as the rose flowers begin to open and are still collected by hand, usually early in the morning. Today this time old tradition is one of the most wonderful sights to see in our industry.
Currently, our growing partners offer highly modern distillation facilities where oil recovery is at its optimum but still on average, Rosa damascena will only yield 1 kilo of oil per 3,500 - 4,000 kilos of flowers!!
This year the yields of rose oil have been lower but the costs of production higher. Though there are sufficient quantities of oil available in the market, this has ensured that there is no price correction on the cards. Prices for good quality rose oil remain at prohibitive levels.
