A little historyThe oldest flower known to mankind, the rose is believed to have originated in Persia. There are many varieties of rose, but the most famous for their benefits are the Damask rose (Rosa damascena), also known as the "Queen of Roses" and the Provins rose (Rosa gallica) and are therefore the most used in cosmetics. The Damask rose is also known as the Queen of Roses. Legend has it that the philosopher and physician Avicenna produced the first essential oil of rose in the 11th century. It is then used as a tonic for tired people.
The essential oil of rose
Rose essential oil (in general and in particular the one we use in the formulation of our DAMASCENA Regenerating Rose collection) is obtained by steam distillation of the flower petals using a still. After this process, the essential oil will separate from the distillation water and rise to the surface in the tank at the outlet of the still. One will be able to recover there on a side the wished essential oil but also the hydrolat of rose, called Floral Water.
