Rose Otto is an exquisite essential oil that has been revered for centuries. It takes 4,000 kg of rose petals to make 1 kg of Organic Rose Otto. Rose Otto is steam distilled from the petals of the rose flower, creating a clear, thin liquid that can solidify at a temperature of 68 degrees F. If solid, put in a bag and insert into warm water. Oil will quickly return to a liquid state. This occurs with Rose Otto because of the distillation process and is completely normal. This Organic Rose Otto comes diluted at 10% (with 100% USDA Certified Organic Sunflower Seed Carrier Oil) because of the strength of this oil. A little of this oil goes a long way, so only a drop is necessary to utilize its benefits. This fragrant essential oil is known for its wonderful, floral scent that is comforting to the senses. Rose Otto is very helpful during times of duress and extreme sadness. It is also very gentle to the skin and helps heal dry, reddened skin.
