Rosa Damascena and its essential oil is one of the timeless symbols of Bulgaria. For over 300 years the inhabitants of the Valley of Roses – also known as the pink valleys of Bulgaria – have grown roses and processed them into Bulgarian rose essential oil.The velvety petals of this highly aromatic and delicate flower are picked individually by hand at dawn, just before it comes into full bloom. This is the beginning of a lengthy process of distillation which results in two outstanding products: the sublime essential oil and one of the purest hydrosols in the world.
Mist of Roses is made from this hydrosol; a by-product of the essential oil steam distillation process. Each time you wrap yourself in an exquisite aura of this fragrant mist, the essence of thousands of petals caresses your skin, evoking a universe of sensations.
4000 kg of freshly harvested petals (representing about 15 m2 of fully productive crops) are needed to obtain 1 kg of Bulgarian rose essential oil. The distillery that supplies Mist of Roses hydrosol was awarded a gold medal by UNESCO at the international Congress on Essential Oils in Plovdiv in 1964 in recognition of their high standards. Today this distillery is also organic certified by ACO, USDA and European Biocert.
