About: White Rose has the beautiful scent of fresh roses with more complexity and sweetness then Rose Absolute or Rose Otto. White Rose is the rarest of all rose oils and only several liters are produced globally each year. It takes 50-60 million White Rose flowers to produce a liter of essential oil. These plants are sensitive to environmental conditions and they are easily damaged by storms, leading to a decrease in the oils availability. Perfumers will vintage White Rose as time allows the oil’s unique characteristics to develop.
Common Uses: White Rose is used in the world’s finest, most expensive perfumes, but you can make your own at home by diluting it with a carrier oil. It is used in face and skin care for promoting clear, healthy, hydrated skin, and is often added to lotions, creams and other formulas for this purpose. White Rose’s beautiful aroma may also support a balanced emotional state during occasional moments of stress, sadness, and irritation.
Blending Recommendations: The aroma of White Rose is very powerful – even a small amount can easily overpower a blend.
