Dr. Nick Notes
Rose essential oil & rose absolute fall under the delightful classification of rare & exotic. ~2,000 petals of rose, produces ONE DROP of rose essential oil (steam distilled). Honored and revered for thousands of years, initially rose oil was slowly separated in pools of water using sunlight and separated gently for it’s beautifying purposes. It’s addition to skin care products can dry weeping skin (astringent), tonify the face, assist in healing cold sores. Mood elevating and rich with many different species of rose – all slightly different in their fragrant expressions.
True steam distilled rose otto will freeze when cold (low room temperature) and can be a great indicator of true rose otto. True Bulgarian Rose Absolute is very well appreciated for it’s deep red hues. I find steam distilled Rose Otto is lighter, less fully bodied Rose aromatic and more etheric / “heady” – excellent for botanical perfumes that are higher in nature, like a mood elevating, heart activating perfume. Slightly spiritually intoxicating. My preference for foods/beverages is typically surprisingly rose absolute (despite the solvent extraction which may leave micro amounts of solvent not desired for internal use) as it’s more full bodied, rich and deep in the heart center, and expresses a fuller flavor. Rose Absolute is noted on the FDA’s GRAS (Generally Recognized As Safe) List for flavoring agents.
Rose Absolute uses pharmaceutical grade hexane to extract a full spectrum cross-section of rose extract. Also has a bold red color, very rich honey-like notes. Rose otto is very light in body and smells highly of top notes. We source red rose, rosa damascena which is the most common rose commercially available, highly appreciated world-wide ~ Rose Absolutely Exquisite
How to Use
Regal baths using 1-3 drops (especially rose absolute), combine with cedar oil for a deeply relaxing experience with a lover. Create a massage lotion using rose essential oil and rub into the stomach during a menstrual cycle to assist in regular flow. Can be infused in low concentrations to foods/beverages (Doc’s preference is rose absolute).
Add 1 drop into raw honey for an intoxicating heart opening treat. Great for calming the nerves, infuse into a diffuser. Infuse into coconut oil to aid in fighting athlete’s foot or other fungal infections. Super potent topically against cold-sores – apply neat! Awe-ing in botanical perfumery.
Contraindicated in first trimester. May cause skin irritation in sensitive individuals (rare) (ie. Eugenol content). Rare, exotic & costly extract – consider diluted for use as botanical perfume.
