The Extraction Process of Rose Absolute

February 25th, 2016

A metaphor for love itself, the extracting process of Rose Absolute essential oil is delicate, precise and unique. It takes approximately 60,000 roses to make 1 oz of Rose Absolute through a solvent extraction method for delicate flowers. Here is a brief step-by-step breakdown of this process.

Roses are a perennial flower, meaning they reproduce and are re-harvested each year. The harvesting process begins as soon as the flowers start opening.

After the roses are harvested, they go through a solvent extraction process (liquid-liquid) because of their delicate nature. The leaves are submerged/placed in the solvent liquid, which dissolves the active ingredients, thus making it more readily available for extraction. Then the liquid is evaporated through heat, leaving behind Rose essential oil.

The extraction process of Rose Absolute essential oil ties in with the theme of love for the month of February. Love is delicate like a rose, love is a process that’s not always easy, love takes time and the proper care to bloom, grow and develop into something that can last a lifetime.
