The Rose is traditionally known as the 'Queen of flowers' and Rose Otto essential oil is considered to be one of the finest essential oils available. This exquisitely fragrant aromatherapy oil is steam distilled from fresh rose petals, with the temperature being carefully controlled so as not to damage the delicate aroma of the resulting essential oil.
Rose Otto essential oil is considered by some aromatherapists to be purer and superior to Rose Absolute which is extracted with solvents. Rose Otto oil is colourless to pale yellow, and has a more delicate and subtle fragrance than Rose Absolute, which has a stronger and more typical 'rose' aroma. Chemically, Rose Otto is also quite different to Rose Absolute - being characterised by its monoterpenes and their alcohols (geraniol and citronellol) and a small amount of phenyl ethanol.
Rose Otto oil is more expensive as there is a smaller yield from steam distillation, however the therapeutic properties of the two oils are virtually the same.
Although it is expensive, Rose Otto is one of the best, all-purpose essential oils for your collection. It is a tender, uplifting and soothing oil. It can help to fight depression, grief, anger and fear, and has a tonic effect on the heart and digestive system. Rose oil is the first choice for helping with female-related problems and is also considered one of the best essential oils to use on the skin.
