What is Bulgarian Rose oil
Bulgarian rose Damascena oil is the main product for our company. It is obtained from the plant Rosa damascena P. Miller. The rose otto is produced using the water-steam distillation process of fresh rose blossoms containing more than 300 elements. The main components are alcohols such as Citronellol, Geraniol, and Nerol as well as Beta-damascenone which forms the overall scent. The hydrocarbons in the rose oil serve as fixator of the scent making it long-lasting. The rose oil is produced in our distillery located in the village of Chernozhemen, Bulgaria in the southern part of the famous Rose Valley.

What makes our Rose oil different
Our company is a Bulgarian rose oil producer since 1993. We have gained knowledge and experience throughout the years which allows us to produce the highest quality of essential oil. All of our products are 100% natural with no additives. Our customers vary from world-renowned fragrance houses to independent perfumers and they all have one thing in common – desire to get the highest quality of essential oils. To ensure this we are growing our own rose gardens of 140 hectares hence making it possible to control the process where it begins – on the fields.
Being the third generation in our family to produce Bulgarian rose oil, we strive to keep pushing the boundaries and maintain our trust and reputation. We believe in the future of Bulgarian rose oil which has become our national symbol. Therefore, we apply practices which have a social effect and one of them is against child labor being involved in the production of our rose oil. Additionally, during the rose-picking season, we provide coach buses for the field workers creating a safe work journey where every passenger has a seat. With the help and trust of our partners, we hope to develop these crucial good practices even strongly and manage to positively influence the production of Bulgarian rose oil.
