Originally native to the Orient and Middle East, rose is grown and cultivated throughout the world, producing numerous species and cultivars. Rose essential oil is extracted from the fresh flower petals of the demascena and centifolia species and produces a pale yellow to olive yellow viscous liquid or a deep orange to olive green viscous absolute. Rose is famous for its beautiful, sweet intense odour and is a popular perfume ingredient. Blended in vegetable oil, cream or lotion, rose essential oil provides valuable skin care qualities, while it also quells panic attacks and anxiety, and uplifts mood and emotion, among many other valuable attributes.
