Standardized: Damask rose

Organic rose buds have become increasingly difficult to source over the years, narrowing the availability of this product. While we strive to consistently bring you the best quality rose buds, variations in appearance can occur between lots. Rose buds can fluctuate from tightly closed buds to loosely-open with petals almost falling off.
The rose has been valued for its beauty and its perfume for thousands of years. Because rose oil deteriorates rapidly with exposure to sun and wind, the content is highest on the first morning when the flower opens. Rose petals picked for distillation are picked manually, day by day, at or just before sunrise.
Whole, dried buds.
Rose oil, rose water, ointments, and potpourri. Uses are very numerous and can be administered as a tea, poultice, bath herb, pillow mix, body spray, etc.
No known precautions.
We recommend that you consult with a qualified healthcare practitioner before using herbal products, particularly if you are pregnant, nursing, or on any medications.
