Rose Essential Oil (Absolute) has many properties but because of its expense and complex chemical structure it is most often used in perfumes. Rose oil energetically has the ability invoking positive thoughts, happiness and hope. There are many subspecies and varieties but most are a cross between R. centifolia (pink rose) and R. gallica (dark red rose). This absolute is not essential or being steam distilled from the petals, but this absolute is solvent extracted. The scent is considered by many as better than the distilled and some of the healing properties can be destroyed in the heat distillation. There is an essential oil from this rose, but it is very expensive. This absolute is also not to be confused with the famous Bulgarian Rose Oil, or Otto of Rose, or Attar of Rose (Rosa damascena) which is usually in oil form, but also found as an absolute. This oil is very expensive as volumes of rose petals are needed to distill the oil. Far less petals are needed to create the absolute. Rose water is created as a byproduct of the distillation. I have read that the damascena variety does not produce as much oil as the centifolia. Another variety found on the market is the Japanese or Chinese Rose (R. rugosa). Rose oil is often adulterated with geranium or palmarosa. Modern hybridizing has decreased the rose scent in most roses available at the florist.
