OBTAINING ANY NATURAL EXTRACT SUCH AS WINE OR ESSENTIAL OILS IS A VERY COMPLEX UNDERTAKING, BUT THE ROSE OIL WEARS KING’S CROWN OF COMPLEXITY!
The Bulgarian Rose Co is the undisputed leader in the distillation of Genuine Bulgarian Rose oil also known as Rose Otto, or Attar of Roses. The FIRST factor is expertise in growing roses from the Rosa Damascena P. Miller variety - from the planting and maintenance to collecting the roses; SECOND comes the over 65 year expertise in the field of distilling essential oils - the technological expertise and know-how. THIRD, the accredited laboratories and personnel to evaluate the distilled rose oil. FORTH, the distilleries and mechanisms for moving roses from the fields and immediately into distillations before the rose material has dried out.
We would like to emphasize that not all the Bulgarian Rose oil is the same. Based on scientific data and research Bulgarian State Standard has established values for quality Bulgarian Rose oil for key important indices. This specification is also a base for the European Pharmacopoeia specification of Rose oil.
