Rose flowers (Rosa damascena M.) picked early in the morning as the dawn washes the petals and carried to our state – of – the-art facility under special conditions to prevent fermentation.
Fresh flowers are poured to the copper stills for hydro – distillation. With the heat, water evaporates, and carries the fragrant constituents out of the rose petals into and through the condenser.
The water loaded with fragrant material flows down from the condenser into the florentine flask. The florentine flask is based on the difference density between water and oil. The oil which is lighter than water goes up. This is called first oil. The water – oil compound which stays down will be carried out for being reprocessed in a similar way with steam stripping to obtain the second oil. The mixture of first and second oil is ROSE ESSENTIAL OIL.
