Essential Rose Oil
The rose oil is obtained through 100% hydro-distillation from the Bulgarian Rosa Damascena. Our essential rose oil is a 100% natural product, exclusively produced from the rose flowers harvested from our own rose fields, located in the heart of the Rose Valley. All rose plantations are situated in the vicinity of our distillery, which enables the rapid processing of the rose blossom right after its gathering. We own and manage the entire process: from the rose cultivation and harvesting to the production of the rose oil. This fact enables us to monitor and control the quality at each step of the production process and assures the high quality of the rose oil.
Our rose oil is certified as a Protected Geographical Indication (PGI) product under the EU Regulation № 1151/2012. It bears the official EU logo for Protected Geographical Indication (PGI) as a sign for its authenticity and high quality.
The PGI registration covers the entire production process - from the fields to the distillation of the rose flowers. There is full traceability of the process, thus guaranteeing the quality control at each and every step from the rose flower gathering to the obtained essential oil.
The Protected Geographical Indication registration is a confirmation of:
- our rose oil’s genuine nature
- protected geographic area of our own fields of Rosa Damascena
- very strict and precisely monitored production process from the field to the final product.
Rose harvest starts around mid May each year. The flower gathering begins at sunrise and lasts until 10 o’clock in the morning while there is still dew on the rose blossom. The rose blossoms are transported right away to our distillery for immediate processing.
